Svaroopa Yoga is a slow moving and very supported form of Hatha Yoga.  It is very relaxing, healing and especially good for your back.  Svaroopa means the ‘bliss of your being’.  It begins with a guided visualization while laying on the floor followed by a special breathing exercise.  From there we work from the tailbone with the first pose.  Successive poses work up the spine.  If there is one pose that you cannot do, there are always substitutes which accomplish the same thing.  You are always comfortable, that is where the support from blankets and blocks come in.  It ends with a guided visualization, a yoga ‘seal’, to save the benefits and carry them with you into the world, and a short chant.

Bring a thick blanket and pad to lie on the floor and yoga blocks if you have them. More blankets and props will be provided.
