In this intensive workshop Swati will use props, modify individual asanas, design dynamic sequences, and integrate asana and pranayama practice with the adoption of other components of the eight fold path of ashtanga yoga and its sister science, Ayurveda.
Swati Chanchani, and her husband Rajiv are founders-directors of the Yog-Ganga Centre in India. They began studying yoga in 1975 with Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar. In the 1990s, they periodically advised the Indian government, including the conceptualization of the international yoga week at Rishikesh, India.
Since the opening of the Dehradun campus of the Yog-Ganga Centre in 2001, Swati and Rajivhave been designing and teaching a remarkable series of yoga intensives. In these intensives they have been tracing the roots of yoga in mythology, legend, and history, and including many stories and tales bringing out the quality of and inspiration for postures. They stress the links of moral and ethical values implicit in the practice of yoga, including nonviolence, truthfulness, and contentment.
Swati and Rajiv have also been continuously promoting and refining Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar’s skillful and pioneering adjustment of asanas to improve the health of individuals irrespective of their age and condition.
