Training students to be teachers and teachers to be students
Overview of Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School
Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School's (SCHYS) Programs are based on and honor the teachings in the lineage of T.Krishnamacharya, Mr. T.K.V. Desikachar and Kausthub Desikachar. As well, SCHYS Executive Director, JJ Gormley, has been teaching what she calls Chakra Alignment since the mid 1990s and therefore, working with the chakras forms another basis of the teachings of SCHYS.
JJ Gormley began offering teacher trainings in 1994 through Sun & Moon Yoga School in Arlington, VA, a school she founded in 1992 and ran up through 2009. In 2009, JJ opened Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School (SCHYS) for the purpose of training yoga teachers and yoga therapists.
SCHYS offers training programs designed for students seeking an opportunity to delve into the knowledge and experiences of yoga taught through the highest levels of innovative teachings. Our curriculum is based on traditional yoga teachings as gathered from the ancient texts.
The SCHYS Advisory Board is comprised of yoga teachers, students, and other professionals who are a part of the organization, maintenance, and planning for SCHYS.
Ethics Review Board
The SCHYS Ethics Review Board is comprised of yoga teachers, students, legal, and medical professionals. This Board is in place should a student wish to lodge a complaint against the School.
Ethics Review Board members change bi-annually. Students enrolled in any of SCHYS' training programs may contact Barbara Sager, School Administrator, should the need arise: email@example.com.
