Jivamukti Yoga, developed by Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York in the early 80’s, provides the modern yogi a practical way to embody century old teachings in the world today. Based on the yogic tradition and grounded in ethical practices, Jivamukti —which means “living liberated”, is a rigorous physical practice combined with practical philosophy that teaches how to live in the modern world with more joy and compassion. Five basic concepts are evident in Jivamukti Yoga core philosophy: nonviolence, devotion, meditation, scripture, and music, and they are an integral part of the practice. Jivamukti Yoga is taught worldwide at Jivamukti Yoga schools and affiliated centers. Swaha Yoga Center has joined this large family in 2013 as the first Jivamukti Yoga affiliated center in Greece.

Η aerial yoga είναι ένα πρόγραμμα που συνδυάζει τις στάσεις της παραδοσιακής yoga με στοιχεία σωματικής ενδυνάμωσης και τη διασκέδαση των εναέριων τεχνών. Γίνεται σε ειδικό μαλακό ύφασμα το οποίο κρέμεται από το ταβάνι, την λεγόμενη αιώρα. Στην aerial yoga στοSwaha Yoga Center, το σώμα αιωρείται και με τη βοήθεια της βαρύτητας οι στάσεις της Yoga διερευνώνται με ένα νέο συναρπαστικό τρόπο που ενδυναμώνει ολόκληρο το σώμα, καθώς ενισχύεται η ισορροπία, η ιδιοδεκτικότητα του σώματος, η σωστή ευθυγράμμιση, η αποσυμπίεση των αρθρώσεων και η χαλάρωση των βαθέων μυών και της περιτονίας.
