What is Svaroopa® Yoga?
Based on a significantly different paradigm in yoga poses, our practice is both physical and more than physical. In Svaroopa® yoga we specialize in “core opening,” spinal decompression, through releasing the tensions in the layers of muscles wrapped around your spine. Svaroopa® yoga has a healing effect on all levels of your being: body, mind, and more. The teachers provide a customized yoga — one-on-one support in every class, to give every student a whole new capacity for movement, breath and aliveness.
Svaroopa® yoga is:
❋ based on "Core Release,” spinal decompression, using precise alignments to create an inner opening from tail to top. It redefines strength, giving you stamina and vitality through releasing deep tensions and recapturing your essential aliveness.
❋ precise and compassionate at the same time, using props such as blankets and blocks to meet your body where it is. You don’t push to make the pose happen; you prop and align, this allows the changes to develop.
❋ body friendly, yoga that anyone can do regardless of experience or fitness level. As your spine opens and elongates your experience of the poses also evolves.
❋ not exercise, Yoga International describes it this way: “Svaroopa® Yoga is a scientific maximization of your body’s capacity, dissolving the tensions that inhibit your body’s natural functioning and inherent healing capacity.”
Svaroopa® yoga guarantees:
reducing pain, reversing the age-clock and boosting your healing power. Physical changes are the beginning of a profound deepening, where all levels open up simultaneously: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. You can experience what the ancient sages promise you: svaroopa— the bliss of your own being.
