Get to know more about Shvasa
Shvasa is the Sanskrit word for breath, and no yoga session is complete without an intimate rendezvous with breath. Often under-utilised and even ignored in many of our present-day yoga sessions, breath, is the one dependable friend we all have that can transform how we live our lives. At Shvasa, this very breath is at the core of our unique approach to practice methodology and a strong connecting thread across practices like Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation.
Breath is that ever accessible, stable bridge that connects our yoga practice to our real-world lives.
All yoga teachers at Shvasa have been trained under and constantly guided by Yoga acharyas whose practice is a balanced blend of traditional knowledge and modern scientific research. Each one of these highly disciplined teachers, with their earnest efforts, will share only the authentic and relevant practice with you, our genius tech and product team is equally determined to bring this practice straight into your living room.
Shvasa’s intervention is designed to help you with two very important aspects of achieving and maintaining optimal physical and mental well-being.
- Teaching and training you in authentic, relevant, and safe practice techniques.
- Helping you create & sustain the good habit of practicing yoga and other health routines for years to come.
Shvasa’s time tested teaching principles and methods will ensure that all your efforts are aligned to meeting goals and maximising practice outcomes. We understand that safety in practice is an important factor in sustaining a long time practice and make sure that all our sessions are as safe as it can get in an online environment.
A great practice is of little practical use if you aren’t able to make it a “Habit”. Hence our platform is designed to create a regular habit of practicing yoga and to effortlessly continue this journey of personal transformation.
At Shvasa, we have shortlisted over 500 asana, breath exercises and meditational techniques across classes to ensure every need and every temperament is accommodated. Our Yoga acharyas along with the yoga teachers will customize your own personalised journey that will best suit your needs, body, and individual goals — novice or advanced learners and everyone in between.
