MEET OUR MASTERS

“Even the Master, in one way or another, is a student throughout life.”— Fakeer Ishavardas

MEET OUR MASTERS

The word ‘guru’ (master) implies imparter of knowledge. The guru or master is the person who guides his pupils from darkness to light or wisdom.

“The Guru is one who dwells in the Light and the Light dwells in him.”

Dada J. P. Vaswani

It is indeed true that a yoga master is a guiding light and the students must follow him to attain wisdom, knowledge and understanding. The roles of a yoga master are many and it is the responsibility of the master to show the right path to his students.

Shwaasa yoga masters are the propagators of enlightenment, wisdom, love and peace. With years of experience and their vast knowledge, they are able to nurture the young souls just the way they need to be.

Apart from teaching the students about the theoretical aspects of yoga, they guide, demonstrate, describe and modify as per the needs of the class. The approachable and warm nature of our yoga masters makes it easy for our students to never feel reluctant to ask something if there’s confusion.

The real aim of our yoga masters is not only to help the students earn their certificate but, inspire them and make them learn the real essence of yoga. They want their students to become the future bearers of the sacred art of yoga and thus, put in every effort to train these young minds in the best manner possible.
