Training students to be teachers and teachers to be students
Our philosophy is to offer an integrated curriculum that provides comprehensive study for students of yoga to continue their education and training. Our programs prepare students to become Yoga Teachers or Yoga Therapists, and offer students a unique opportunity for greater study of yoga and self-development. Steeped in quality, excellence, and integrity, we offer a complete education in the art, science, and philosophy of yoga.
SCHYS programs preserve the wisdom of the ancient traditions while adapting them to meet the needs of our contemporary society and busy lifestyles. While our courses are intense and demanding, they are flexible and encourage students to cultivate their own inner resources with commitment and self-discipline.
The teachings of T.Krishnamacharya and T.K.V. Desikachar inform and anchor all our programs. The diverse background of the faculty, who come from many other yoga styles and traditions but who have now steeped themselves in the Krishnamacharya lineage, adds the unique opportunity of studying in a defined tradition while adding depth from other approaches to yoga. Our students leave our programs prepared to teach to different populations in a variety of settings – safely, successfully, and compassionately.
