Training students to be teachers and teachers to be students
Surya Chandra HealingYogaSchool(SCHYS) is dedicated to teaching students to become teachers and teaching teachers to remain students. We believe in uniting the best of traditional yogic teachings and philosophy with innovative approaches to teaching yoga to contemporary society.
We have a unique approach to teaching yoga and yoga therapy that embraces many traditions and styles of yoga. SCHYSbelieves in inclusive teachings and inclusive language. We hire faculty that have been trained in more than one tradition or lineage of yoga. We blend the best of all the traditions from which we've studied.
SCHYS teaches alignment techniques that center on what the bones and muscles do at each of the seven main energy centers (chakras). We teach sequencing and course planning with the protection of the student in mind, therefore we incorporate knowledge of course planning that utilizes proper preparation and counter poses as taught by Mr. TKV Desikachar, Kausthub Desikachar and the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India.
Our name, Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School (Surya represents Sun and Chandra represents Moon) meaning opposites unite to create balance and harmony. Grounded in the ancient texts of India, SCHYS programs, directed by JJ Gormley C-IAYT, offer comprehensive and integrated study of the art and science of yoga.
