our mission

Grounded in the ancient texts of India, SCHYS programs offer comprehensive and integrated study of the art and science of therapeutic yoga. Taught through the wider perspective of teachings from multiple traditions, our programs focus on the experiential learning process. SCHYS Yoga Teachers and Yoga Therapists are empowered to bring holistic health and healing to their students and clients. We teach you to find harmony in your life by balancing the opposites.


In education the first requirement is the teacher, the second is the student. What should happen between them is learning. How it should happen is through the constant teaching of that which will be relevant to the student. That is education.
