Savira Gupta – Advisor – education and research working group
Savira is an E-RYT 200 Yoga Alliance, YACEP and 500 YAI accredited Yoga teacher, with over 3200 hours of teaching with the leading studios in 4 continents. Out of her passion for Yin Yoga, formed whilst a senior teacher with Yogalife, she decided to establish her own Yin Yoga Training Course in India in 2013, bringing Yin Yoga into the spotlight. Her “Art of Yin Yoga™” Training Course established in two major cities in India, has evolved and grown and is now taught across the world.
Specialising in the Art of Svādhyāya™ through Yin and Hatha Yoga, Savira’s holistic style of teaching encompasses the understanding of the physical, mental and spiritual journey of this Yoga. She believes that yoga is a self-inquiry practice both on and off the yoga mat. Her classes are slow and steady, encouraging deep relaxation and the understanding of safe
alignment in a playful environment that encourages interaction and self-exploration. Savira’s sessions are created from her own experiences and journey in life where she combines the key principles of compassion, non-judgment, self-reflection, and humour and with perspective.
They are combined with stories of yoga mythology and scriptures from the Bhagvad Gita, grounding her & honouring her heritage by staying true to her culture and traditions.
She passionately believes that Yoga is an individual and mindful practice that is accessible to all. Having worked with students dealing with a wide-variety of physical limitations, Savira mindfully guides her students to understand the basic fundamentals of their body movement; empowering them to heal and create a passion for learning and deepening their practice further.
When she is not inspiring yogi’s around the world through her wit, charm, and oceanic depth of wisdom, she can be found in a studio where she regularly empowers students by challenging them both in their practice and critical thinking.
