You've heard the adage... "A picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, when it comes to Svaroopa® Yoga, one experience is worth a thousand words.
Understanding yoga by reading about it is like trying to describe the taste of a strawberry rather than actually biting into one. Like strawberries, Svaroopa® Yoga (well, ALL yoga) is designed to be experienced.
What happens when a person is guided into the state of yoga? It's a wordless and intimate experience. The rishis respect the sanctity of each person’s own personal experience and call it "true Self. Students use words like peace, relief, joy, and openness to describe how they feel after a class. Part of the adventure is you finding the words for your experience too.
Here are truths about Svaroopa® Yoga to entice your mind and tide you over until you can experience a Svaroopa® Yoga class in person.

You won’t experience external stimulus in this style of yoga and you don’t need the latest yoga clothes. Sweats and a t-shirt work great. The excitement comes from your INNER experience and when you experience the benefits.
The process is quiet and introspective, and people aren’t typically used to that, so there's an adaptation period.
Leonardo da Vinci wrote that a poet would be "overcome by sleep and hunger before being able to describe with words what a painter is able to depict in an instant." I believe that’s adaptable to the relationship between yoga teachers and yoga students. Allow yourself to be guided into the experience of the masterpiece of yourself and try Svaroopa® yoga. Yes, that’s an invitation!
