Yoga practice moves us towards the flow of cosmic harmony and Swaha represents exactly that. Svāhā is an ancient Ved mantra and is reffered to as “an ecstatic shout of joy, expressive of a feeling of complete release”. [Conze, p.128] Swaha presents a yoga space that encourages a self-expressive, creative and playful approach to Hatha Yoga. With accent on alignment and precision, freedom of individual expression is found in the midst of the discipline. Postures are performed in a flowing fashion and moving in and out of postures builds strength, stamina, endurance, flexibility, concentration and rhythmic awareness. The breath is a part of the flow of each movement. Svāhā is also freely translated as “let it be” which indicates the flowing, impermanent and ever changing nature of life. Through the rhythmic flow of body and breath we naturally move toward recognition of the spirit within and our ever-lasting intrinsic nature (Swabhava). Svāhā occurs at the end of the mantra, completing it. It is a kind of a seal and in this manner at Swaha we treat each individual posture (asana). A posture is complete and “sealed” when in perfect alignment. Aligning the body gives the thought process a concrete focus and thus disciplines the mind, while preventing injuries, elongating the spine, bringing the vital organs into their favorable place, and supplying sufficient blood and vital energy (prana) to all parts of the body. Properly aligned physical body results in proper alignment of all subtle bodies, bringing about positive mental outlook and emotional stability. In this way we are aligned with the Whole, increasing the vibration of our vital energy (prana) and our resonance with the universe. Swaha is an embodiment of happiness in the ever-changing river of life.
