Sink into relaxation. The Sanskrit word ‘Svaroopa’ means ‘the bliss of your own being’. Svaroopa® yoga aims to open and relax the spinal muscles, releasing tension and leaving the body in a natural state of bliss. Rather than concentrating on precise positions, students are encouraged to sink into poses, taking pressure off the body and allowing it to unwind.
How does it work?
Classes last for approximately an hour and a half and include guided meditation, breath work and asana (poses). Your teacher will show you how to use props such as blocks and blankets to help position the body in ways that focus on opening and releasing the spine.
Is it for me?
Svaroopa® yoga can help to ease neck, back and shoulder pain, in addition to reducing fatigue, headaches and colds. It can also aid breathing and digestion, and has a positive effect on those suffering from the cumulative effects of stress. Over time, stress can manifest itself in the form of physical aches and pains. Practicing Svaroopa® yoga can help to counter the effects of stress and prevent tension from building up. This style of yoga is suitable for people of all abilities.
