About this trip

Conscious Alignment is a unique advanced yoga training program for yoga teachers wishing to expand their knowledge and teaching experience, to explore the possibilities of offering effective hands-on support, and to empower their students in making the right decisions for their own bodies and practice. 


Through this intimate training program, only 4 participants will have the opportunity to grow both as a teacher and as a student under the guidance of knowledgeable and experienced yoga trainers. While this advanced training will build off the basics of assisting, introduce a deeper understanding of the body, and integrate a more in-depth review of assisting through Swastha Yoga Methodology, Conscious Alignment students will also engage with students in the entry-level 200-hour YTT - which runs concurrently with the advanced program.  Participating in this way not only affords the Conscious Alignment student a unique opportunity for greater inspirational leadership, as well as to practice hands on assists to a variety of bodies, it will also challenge your own ability and skill in being a student - processing constantly and consistently being human while being present in the presence of others. This is the deeper presence inside the yoga…and when true advanced learning takes shape.


We ask that our advanced students enter the program with a student first-student last mindset. To consistently find the lesson and learning, as well as being open to the teachings is paramount to becoming an effective Swastha Yoga leader and yoga teacher. 

Conscious Alignment students are asked to model this form of leadership with the entry-level 200 hour students during the training, and to continue aligning to this level of generosity and vulnerability when they go back to their communities. Participating in this way not only affords the Conscious Alignment student a unique opportunity to practice hands on assists to a variety of bodies, it will challenge your own ability and skill in being a student; processing constantly and consistently being a human while being present in the presence of others. You have our full permission to get messy (and it will), and we ask nothing more of you than to fully participate and engage in this way. This is the deeper presence inside the yoga…and when true advanced learning takes shape. 

Our program supports the Conscious Alignment student to cultivate studentship in a variety of ways; in a small group setting with skilled and experienced teachers and leaders, independently as a way to develop content, time-management and creative planning skills, as well as within the larger group as a leader and teacher.


Swastha is the sanskrit word that means to be firmly rooted and fully established in oneself, with balanced health on all levels of our Being.  This program is designed in a very particular way and has the potential to instigate real, sustainable transformation and change in your life; cultivating growth and trust in yourself and in others. We offer a safe and supportive space for opening into personal revelations that will encourage you to be a more authentic and inspirational leader, as well as a willing and thriving participant in life.

Our goal is to inspire people around the globe to have deep and meaningful practices both on and off the mat, to understand what it takes to be a truly powerful and authentic leader, and to use words and actions that support and nurture a healthy relationship to oneself and to others...so that our collective as yoga students, teachers, and humans will thrive - that is Swastha! Together we, Kevin McQuillan and Serena Arora, have taught, led, shared and witnessed the beautiful process of yoga in communities around the world for over 35 years and we are excited to build a community of teachers, practitioners, and leaders who are equally as committed to sharing, contributing, learning and being well together. We invite you here to our home in Costa Rica, on the road, and to call us into your own community to support growth and possibility - wherever you are in the world!

Professionalism and attention, great attention, was what I felt in this workshop. I left with a new perspective and a wakeup to myself. I recommend anyone looking for growth and discovery in their lives.
This was an important workshop. Made me think about things long hidden that I needed to address and remove. I did! Important also to hear that many others were in the same situation. Kevin and Serena are wonderful moderators!
My weekend of classes with Serena and Kevin have changed my life....FOR REAL!!!! I'm inspired to do the work and make the sacrifices necessary to improve my quality of life and honor the importance of my health. Thank you! Over the course of just 1 week there has been such and improvement of attitude within my household and some true healing and letting go of past crap. I just have such a different perspective. I'm trying to hold on to the momentum. Thanks for the follow up paper-work.
Amazing! I’m so glad I found Swathas YTT. It was beyond what I had hoped for in a YTT.
