About the Federación Nacional de Yoga Sadhana
38 years of teaching.
In 1974 we were born and settled down, in 1976 we registered our asociation and we started training teachers in 1980. Thirty eight years of experience in yoga teacher training have enabled us to create a training model based on traditional yoga teaching, which has been enriched using more contemporary methods related to new advances in medicine, psychology or psychotherapy. We endeavour to develop yoga following the principles of respect, evolution and tolerance towards whatever personal practice, whether it is based on belief, religion, philosophy or science, everyone is free to choose. The vital aspect of yoga is our attitude and complete focus on everything we do, and not our beliefs.
OBJECTIVE: Human development and evolution of values such as awareness, art of living, solidarity in life and harmony between body, mind and spirit. The guiding principles of our practice are: developing conscious awareness, evolving in our hearts and learning from reality by developing our ability to be present, still, listen and focus.
