200- Hour Yoga Teacher Training

  • Get in touch with what inspires and moves the individual physically, spiritually and emotionally

  •  Re-awaken the soul with a sense of identity and divine capability

  • Stand in their confidence and authentic voice 

Using our three-pronged philosophical approach, we create teachers with newfound strengths that can help on the mat and off.

  1. Subtle body and Energetic Awareness

  2. Anatomy of the human body

  3. Functional Movement & Natural Range of Motion

Affording Yoga Teacher Training

Our founder wholeheartedly believes that cost should never stop someone from growing in yoga.  However, as the premier Metaphysical Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program in Atlanta, our rates have slightly increased.  Opposed to setting cost purely on market research devoid of the experience of guiding others in the realm of metaphysics in yoga teacher training.  Our rate increase is based on experience and a track record of guiding yoga teacher trainings authentically and purely from a metaphysical frame of reference.  SWAY’s Metaphysical Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program is and will remain unmatched and is not comparable to any other metaphysical teacher training offering since its inception in 2019.  Our training is sacred and available to the community at large – this is True Light Work!
