Most everyone can do and enjoy this style due to the use of props that support you at your present comfort level. In Svaroopa® yoga the emphasis is on support which allows the body to release deeply held tensions.
Each class starts and ends with Shavasana, yoga’s relaxation pose. All the poses in between are carefully chosen to release the tension in the muscles connecting to the spine, starting at the tailbone. This allows the spine to decompress and habitual patterns of tension to unravel. As a result chronic pain is alleviated, the mind stops running you ragged and becomes peaceful, the heart also lightens up. You discover a whole new way of being.
Students at Light of the Heart Yoga™ often hear the suggestion to “soften into the pose and allow the pose to do the work for you.” No straining, pushing or over-doing are necessary to receive the many benefits that Svaroopa® yoga has to offer. Students typically leave class feeling uplifted and deepy relaxed.
