• Yoga has been expanding in the West with the emphasis of it being an exercise or even a sport. This is a different direction than what the ancient teachings intended.

  • Hatha yoga (where yoga styles originate from) is described in the yoga texts as a way of working with the body for the purpose of progressing towards enlightenment, not towards mastering a pose or perfecting the body. The yogic texts further define the practice of yoga as a way to balance + open your body’s own healing power enabling it to flow freely through the center of your spine.

  • Svaroopa® Yoga is a distinctive style that supports this truest purpose of yoga. Rather than imposing the pose upon the body, it unfolds from within by releasing the spine for the purpose of having the experience of yourself as consciousness; your innermost Self that is a healing state of unwavering peace + joy.
