The purpose of the Swatantrya (Swuh-TAAN-treeya) certification standard is to provide a new paradigm in yoga teacher certification, particularly with regard to the physical and therapeutic aspects of hatha yoga practice. Swatantrya certification indicates that you have completed the standards for learning that are set by the Swatantrya standard, from studying not just with teachers in the Swatantrya school, but with teachers of your own choosing who have informed and valuable insights to offer into the practice of yoga for therapeutic benefit. You are not judged by your style or manner of teaching. You are evaluated simply by whether you can demonstrate that you know and can apply the material you have studied. Swatantrya certifies excellence in learning and practical application of knowledge in yoga.
