About Us


Spirit of Yoga was built out of the award-winning private college, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA), which offered a Yoga Alliance approved Teacher Training program for the past twelve years. In May 2011, SWIHA opened the doors to a new, world-class public yoga studio and educational facility, just a few blocks away from its main campus in Tempe, Arizona. Although our yoga studio facility, location, and name have changed, our mission remains the same…to offer yoga classes which are affordable, flexible, and transformational. For over a decade, Spirit of Yoga has changed the lives and elevated the practice of countless yoga practitioners, instructors, and devotees.


The core values upon which Spirit of Yoga was founded upon are

  • We are Spirit-Directed
  • We are Community-Centered
  • We emphasize Choice and Flexibility
  • We focus on Self-healing, Self-Empowerment, and Self-Sufficiency
  • We are dedicated to Your Success
