Profound Results from the Beginning
Svaroopa® Yoga is one of the primary styles of hatha yoga in America, developed by Swamini Nirmalananda (formerly Rama Berch). It prioritizes a compassionate approach to your body and mind by using precision alignment and props to create advanced effects without strain or risk.
Svaroopa® Yoga naturally leads to physical and mental healing, strength, stability, and opening to meditation. The classes leave you feeling refreshed physically and mentally. The Science of Svaroopa® Yoga uses muscle activation and/or support combined with precision alignment to achieve a deep core release. This style of yoga is accessible and beneficial for new students and is adaptable for those with physical challenges. Each class is 90 minutes and begins and ends with Yoga Nidra (guided body scan). There is a breathing practice called Ujjayi (meaning Victory) and 8-10 yoga poses in each class. We always include a powerful contemplation of a yogic teaching.
Experienced yogis find it effective for deepening goals in asana and meditation as well as ongoing stress management. The science of Svaroopa Yoga is to create stability and stamina while releasing core (spine and internal organ) tension. In each class, I'll guide you step by step with verbal cues, demonstrations, and personal assists so your yoga practice is reliable, safe and effective.
Svaroopa® Yoga meets you where you are, customizing the pose to your needs. Melt away the years of pain and tension to become more alive, supple and strong. You don’t have to know what you are doing because we know exactly what we're doing for you.
Props You'll Need
The key to your successful practice is having the right props. Like a runner needs good running shoes, you need support for this practice to achieve the advanced core opening.
The blankets are VERY important. They're a signature prop for this yoga because they are a particular weight and texture that allows you to fold and roll them so they support your body effectively.
For your convenience, I've added links to the list so you can purchase the props directly and have them shipped to your home.
NOTE: It's important to have the first 4 props listed.
Number 5 is optional, but helpful if you have tight hamstrings/back.
