Svaroopa® yoga is a less active, blissful practice that releases core tension in your spine. The word svaroopa (sva-roo-pa or swa-roo-pa) is Sanskrit meaning “the bliss of your own being”. The attention is on you in small individualized classes. This is a compassionate yoga meeting tension where it's at. The practice is based on a sequence of deceptively simple poses that are fully supported with blankets and blocks. Because of this support, Svaroopa® yoga releases deep spinal muscles allowing for a core opening, or decompression, of your spine. This is a profound system of healing for everyone except those with an organ transplant as it boosts the immune system. This yoga allows you to be within your self in a new way. You will come out of pain, move with ease and reduce mental stress and fatigue. This core opening affects both body and mind. Suddenly, you feel calmer and more relaxed. You also gain a renewed sense of energy. Your mind settles down as your body unwinds. Your stress levels will reduce as you release into the bliss within.
