  Stephan Trefzer - Siva
I was was born and raised in Switzerland and began my ‘informal’ practice about 1984 and started the ‘formal’ practice of yoga practice in 1992. I graduated as an Integral Yoga® Teacher at the Satchidananda Ashram and Headquarters of Integral Yoga® Institutes in Buckingham, Virginia, USA and have completed over 730 hours of teacher training. The training was styled in the traditional ancient model of ‘Gurukula’, living and working with fellow students under the instruction of yogic masters in a spiritual community. I am fully qualified to teach Hatha Yoga for Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced students, Pranayama (breath control) and Meditation and in addition to this I have also completed the qualification to teach Raja Yoga (Science of the mind/Yoga philosophy). Two of my main passions happen to be Raja and Jnana Yoga. I was also initiated into the sacred path of Japa Yoga (Mantra repetition). To date I have over 10 years of teaching experience.
 
I have the privilege of continuing my development with Integral Yoga's senior teachers, monastic and direct disciples of Swami Satchidananda and continue my studies with personal practice, retreats, workshops and satsangs; Since 2005 I also have been studying regularly with Satyananda, a Self-realised master from the Ramana Maharshi lineage. I also studied with Sri Swami Satchidananda, Mantra with Muz Murray and enjoyed being in the company of other very inspiring beings.
 
Since 2001 I have been teaching internationally as well as in a variety of settings like sports centres, local schools, Prison, for the organisation Drug Link, autistic children, special needs young adults, olymipic medal winners and I have also taught the England woman’s rugby team.
 
I also work as Sports Massage amd over the last 12 years I have worked with top athlestes and non sports people treating all kinds of injuries and complaints. My Sports and Remedial Therapy is a combination of sports massage therapy, subtle soft tissue release and specific body work, which has been derived from my long practice as well as my on-going learing from other therapists treatments on myself in order to re-establish alignment and a good and easful posture.

I am a senior teacher and teacher trainer in Integral Yoga. I also work as a Lead Back Pain, RSI and Ergonomics Consultant for the company Workers and Workstations and I also designed and founded the Sunburst Meditation Cushions
 
Upon my last meeting with Sri Swami Satchidananda in July 2002, I received the blessings to open an Integral Yoga® Centre. The Swindon Centre is dedicated to honour and continue the teachings.

I am a member of the Integral Yoga® Teachers Association (IYTA), International Council of Health, Fitness and Sports Therapists. (HSFT) and Independent Yoga Network (IYN)

I found peace with the completeness of Integral Yoga®, it has completely changed my life around for the better.
Life's continual learning curve is made easier by the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda and I was blessed to have these patiently shown to me by beloved Siva.
Serving others without personal gain is the most wholesome and contented feeling you will ever feel in your life, it is highly recommended - Om Shanti.
