What is Svaroopa® Yoga?
 
READ MEDIA REPORTS on Svaroopa® yoga .

Svaroopa® yoga (swa-roo-pa) means “Bliss Yoga.”  If you have back pain, neck pain, knee pain or a crazy-busy mind, you need this style of yoga.

Based on a significantly different paradigm in yoga poses, our practice is both physical and more than physical. We specialize in the inner opening, called "core opening," releasing the tensions in the deepest layers of your body – the layers of muscles wrapped around your spine.  


"I experienced openings far deeper and larger than I have with any other style of yoga in the last ten years.” – Malaya K.

What is a Class Like?
Your class begins with you reclining in a pose, your knees and feet resting on soft cushions, while your teacher guides you through a relaxation and a slow yogic breathing process.  Each of the poses in your class targets a specific part of your spine, to unravel your core tensions and create space between your vertebrae and for your internal organs.  You end with another guided relaxation.  From your first class, you can tell that this stuff works. 

Svaroopa® yoga is a customized yoga.  Class sizes are limited so your teacher can watch your body’s angles, to be able to offer you a customized angle, a blanket or other prop, or gentle hands-on assistance which opens up a whole new capacity for movement, breath and aliveness.  

Where Does it Come From?
Svaroopa® yoga comes from its tantric roots in India, brought to the USA by Swami Nirmalananda in 1985.  Its specialty is called Core Opening, the targeted release of the deepest layers of tensions in your body.  You gain strength as well as vitality and clarity of mind, all from a seemingly easy practice.

Core opening provides profound pain relief, while opening you to your own transformational process as well as deep inner experiences of your own Divinity, as described by yoga's ancient sages.

“Definitely a deeper understanding of the philosophy behind the physical practice. That is very important to me.” – Julia S.

“I know my spine is saying, ‘Thank you!!’” – Dana C.
