Svastha Yoga practitioners A.G & Indra Mohan, both students of Krishnamacharya, pass on their vast yoga knowledge through the school they founded in Chennai, India. Their children Ganesh Mohan and Nitya Mohan are also following yoga traditions as teachers in their own right.
I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training program 2009/2010 with Auckland based Yoga Therapist Barbara Coley of Svastha Yoga New Zealand. Between 2016 and 2019 I studied yoga therapy and Ayurveda with Ganesh Mohan and Barbara Colely, completing a 300 hour yoga therapy program.
Therapeutic yoga uses asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and guided imagery to improve mental and physical well-being. A therapeutic yoga approach encourages the integration of mind, body and breath.
Yoga therapeutics adapts the practice of yoga to the individual not usually addressed in a group class. A therapeutic assessment allows discussion on health concerns, lifestyle, goal setting and designing a personalized practice complimentary to any existing treatment.
