‘The equanimity that enables us to accept all circumstances with serenity is yoga.’

Yoga Shala

We have a shala built along the fringe of a conservation forest and a stream, framed with views of trees and snowcapped peaks. We hold space here for practitioners and non-practitioners; to inspire, support and find meaning in your own growth whatever form or disposition it may be. 

Yoga Practice

Ganesh Upadhyay is the main yoga teacher at Swara. He is open to sharing and customising a practice that suits your needs and requirements.

We also hold Ashtanga yoga mysore self-practice sessions. This is the traditional method of teaching and practising ashtanga yoga. It is a supervised session where asanas (postures) are taught one at a time, allowing the individual student to progress at their own pace and ability within a group environment. Practising in this way gives you space to follow your own rhythm, hence, when the mind is focused on the breath, the practice becomes a meditation in motion.

The practice of asanas serves as a bedrock for delving deeper into other facets of yoga, such as pranayama, philosophy, and chanting.

'Do your practice and all is coming.'

K. Pattabhi Jois

This practice is a great way to start the day. Once it’s done, you’ll be ready to face anything.

Shala Space to Facilitate Workshops, Events & Celebrations

The shala can accommodate up to 35 mats and is available throughout the year for teachers who wish to host their own programmes.

In addition, we are happy to facilitate workshops and events that are related to meaningful learning and for better wellbeing. We strive to foster collaborations and are open to mutual exchanges of ideas, experiences and perspectives.
