In 2005, as a way to gather more knowledge for his own personal practice, he decided to do a teacher training course. His dedication and commitment, something he learned at the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, are the fundamental foundations of his practice.

Swara Yoga School

I would highly recommend taking this teacher training. Not only has it provided me with a solid foundation for teaching yoga but also t has helped me to develop personally. I particularly love the combination of dynamic yang classes in the morning and releasing yin postures in the afternoon. I loved the food! Every meal has been really tasty, interesting and well thought out. Everything was really fresh and seasonal. The variety of food was amazing and well connected to the 5 elements. The meals allowed me to integrate the practices and gave me a great insight which foods are beneficial for me and which aren´t.

The combination of deep practices, healthy food and a beautiful safe environment with amazing teachers has made this a truly memorable and rewarding experience Thank you for everything you have done for us on this path of learning and self-development.

Swara Yoga School

Thank you for all of it! The course was deep, informational and pretty fitting to the vibe I got from your website originally. I´ve been looking for an experience like this for a long time and I don´t think I could have gotten it at any other teacher training. The practices were innovative and challenging, satisfying and engaging. This course was one of the best experiences I had in my life – the opportunity for self-enquiry balanced with yoga and study. The food was amazing and really inspiring. The teachers are really knowledgeable, warm and caring. I felt supported during the whole time. I recommend this course to anyone that is looking to learn more about themselves, yoga and holistic health

Swara Yoga School

My time with Swara Yoga School gave me the chance to grow both physically and emotionally. My body changed and my mind got a bit more still. The classes were super well structured with a focus on practical elements that I could put them into practice right away. The beautiful environment of the mountains gave me a deeper connection to Nature. I had an amazing time here, learned lots about myself, yoga and life from two supportive and experienced teachers. Thank you

Rose Thiescheffer Netherlands

Swara Yoga School

This course has provided me an indescribable experience and journey through myself. I not only feel incredibly prepared to teach yoga but also I know and accept myself more for who I am. The journey through the 5 elements using yoga has been transformational in a way that I have learned to accept and let go of certain challenging habit patterns. I´m more than grateful for this experience.

Ista Boszhard Netherlands

Swara Yoga School

This was a journey through my body, my feelings, my elements and of course my own Nature. On the journey I met all kinds of challenges, triumphs, subtle and gross parts of me and I tapped into something bigger than me. This holistic journey brought me the realization that in the end we all connected and One. To share this with an amazing group of people inspired me to go out into the world and share it with my students and community.

To my teachers, thank you for your energy, your love, your listening, your knowledge and for sharing it all with us.
