Class Descriptions

Svaroopa® Yoga
Svaroopa® Yoga is a style of Hatha Yoga developed by Swami Nirmalananda (formerly Rama Berch). The focus is on releasing deep, core tensions in the body. We use blankets and other props for comfortable support in the poses. We begin, as well as end, lying down with relaxation. Students are given lots of assistance and instruction. Poses are modified for better comfort, support and release. With careful alignment and softening into supported poses, we can create real changes in our body, mind and emotions.

Svaroopa® Yoga is for you if you have chronic (not acute stage) back pain, joint issues or systemic body issues. If you’ve tried other styles of yoga and they were too difficult, uncomfortable, fast, hot, crowded, confusing, effortful or you hurt afterward, this style’s for you. If you want to slow down, relax, feel good, come try a Svaroopa® Yoga class.

Svaroopa® Yoga is gentle, slow moving, nurturing, and inner focused. Svaroopa® Yoga can facilitate pain relief, stress relief, relaxation, flexibility, strengthening, clearing out of old mental and emotional patterns, and, with a daily practice, may also help many medical conditions. When we create these changes in ourselves, this has a “ripple effect”, first changing how we feel, and then changing how we interact with the people we come in contact with. That change ripples out to the whole world, helping to create a more peace-filled world, from the inside, out.

Come experience Svaroopa, the essence of your Being, your True Self. For more information contact Marjorie Crockett.
