Svaroopa® yoga is one of the primary styles of hatha yoga in America. It is known for its compassionate approach to profoundly transformative work with the body, mind and emotions. It is widely recognized as a powerful tool for promoting healing and transformation, as well as opening the inner levels of transcendent experience.

In Svaroopa® yoga the emphasis is on releasing the tensions at the core of the body along the spine beginning at the tailbone and progressing through each spinal area. The poses are carefully chosen to provide this opening.

A key principle of Svaroopa® yoga is support equals release. Through the support of props (blankets, blocks, chairs) the muscles relax allowing tensions and compression to be released without exertion. There is an unwinding of core tensions which has a beneficial effect into all the systems of the body- nervous, digestive, respiratory, circulatory etc.

Svaroopa® yoga specializes in the inner opening. As soon as you experience this physical opening, you realize that something has opened all the way through your whole being. An inner state of being at ease becomes accessible. The changes are profound and reliable.

Svaroopa® yoga classes offer you the opportunity to feel uplifted and more joyful; deeply relaxed and calm; to have greater clarity and more energy; to release stress and anxiety; to feel well from the inside out; and MORE!
