    I loved the balance between yoga asanas, and philosophy and yoga teachings. It felt really holistic, and I learned so much more than I expected. The teachers were amazing and the location is stunning.

    The anatomy section of the course could have been a bit more thorough, but I only felt that because every other section was so fantastic.

    I have had an amazing experience at the Swaha yoga teacher training in Greece. It was everything I had expected and more. I have learned so much there about myself and about yoga and apparently, the program attracts amazing people as well since the group I was with was very special. Overall an experience I would not have missed out on.

    Throughout my yoga teacher training I was impressed and inspired by Tanya‘s depth of knowledge on yoga and it’s philosophy. She is someone who really walks the walk and lives her practice. Her actions always expressed a deep respect for the tradition which deepened my own fascination and respect for it. Tanya really emphasized the important of alignment of each of the asanas, and how to most respectfully and effectively assist students in class. This has been a huge take away for me in my own teaching. What also struck me about Tanya, was her willingness to share from her own journey so that her students could learn from her experiences both in practice and in business. She showed us how to merge the two without compromising the tradition or ourselves. Thank you Tanya!

    I completed my 200-hr RYT training with Tanya years ago in Amorgos, Greece. As I continue my own practice of yoga and taken many different classes, the more I understand the value of Tanya‘s strong and compassionate teaching style. Tanya always made me feel safe and cared for, while pushing me to my fullest potential. She emphasized the importance of the Yoga Sutras, and always integrated asana practice with yoga philosophy. Tanya is a responsible and inspiring teacher, and her teachings continue to be a powerful force in my life.

    I completed my first 200-hr Hatha and Vinyasa training with Tanya last summer 2015 and it was incredible. The knowledge, passion, and talent of Tanya and her team provided me with a solid foundation on which to build my practice and teaching. She taught with such compassion and humility that she will always be an inspiration to me for years to come. The training far exceeded my expectations and, from my understanding, the 200-hr criteria of Yoga Alliance. Tanya‘s knowledge of Vedanta philosophy and yogic tradition ensured that her training was delivered in depth, whilst being sympathetic to the roots of yoga. It was inspiring to learn how eastern yogic principles can serve us in modern times and I hope to attend more training with Tanya and Swaha Yoga in the future. This training changed my whole perspective on life and I’m forever grateful for her teachings. With love and gratitude.

    I have had the opportunity to practice with different teachers in different cities and when I met Tanya in Munich I became a regular in her classes. I like her strong and creative sequences which are always challenging and rewarding. She guides you with an amazing smooth voice, to become aware of the important not so obvious alignment details of your own body. I also learned to recognize my breath patterns and to practice different breathing techniques in her breathing and meditation classes as a tool to improve my living quality. Tanya inspired my yoga practice in many levels: physical, mental, spiritual. I considered her an experienced and honest teacher, a teacher with integrity. For all these reasons I decided to do my first yoga teacher training with her and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the experience that has served me to shift my life perception forever.

    The program, the team and the books she chose are truly jewels of wisdom that made me an integral teacher and being.

    I’m thankful that our paths have crossed and I’m looking forward to my next training with Tanya!

    Tanya struck me from the moment I saw her as a powerful, knowledgeable, wise, confident and strong woman. This is the same aura she maintained and resonated steadily throughout the entire teacher training I attended with her. I was proud to know her immediately and to be in her presence throughout. I was proud that I was going to learn, grow and have the opportunity to be in an intense training with her. I wanted to emanate pieces of her aura and incorporate them into the parts of me that needed it. I truly hope and believe I did after that training in September 2014 too and continue to do so always.I feel that I’m a stronger, wiser, more diligent, dedicated, committed, aware, more courageous and enhanced of a person and yogi after her training, in major part due to her, her design of the training and who she is. She truly has the ability to move mountains and it shows. Yet, as she’s teaching you how to do it, she will also remind you of how quickly they can be torn down, so you healthily stay in a good place. She teaches balance. She strives to give her work her fullest, and it shows. She understands her students, yet pushes them to achieve no less than their true potential either. She demonstrates commitment to continual growth in philosophy, discipline, learning, practicing, health, teaching and being an amazing yogi. At the same time, when the time is right, she’ll laugh, dance, sing, loves people and animals and will let you know to come to her if you need anything. The breath of her knowledge is expressed greatly in her asana and text classes. I felt like I was always learning and trying something new, was always challenged by her, and I always looked forward to it and wanted to show her my best. I always felt like her knowledge was coming from vast and deep places and valued being a part of her training for a multitude of reasons I understood then and continued to grow to understand later too. She earns great respect from students and returns it when earned equally. I feel very grateful to have known her in this setting and to be able to keep in touch with her as someone to look up to always. I will always follow her many excursions and lessons learning, emanating and striving to maintain that part in me of what I so strongly admire to be like her, and that’s a rare wonderful thing!

    I've done a lot of research on certification programs over the years and one of the reasons why I chose this one was because of their well-rounded approach, I'm thrilled to be in a training that has not only helped me grow with asanas, but learn more about yogic philosophy, pranayama, anatomy and the many ways this practice benefits all of us, not too mention the beautiful community that has been created between us.
