People wanted variety but I wanted to give them depth. Even teachers who trained with me wanted to do fancy stuff, including pretty poses and impressive moves. But that’s not what Svaroopa® yoga is about. So, I created a short course that would make the depth and incredible physical makeover obvious. If you want a new body in five days, this is the course for you.
We don’t do anything fancy. None of the poses are pretty, but they do make you more beautiful (for men – more handsome). Your inner beauty shines through for two reasons: 1) you’re accessing it, and 2) there’s less blocking the way.
Foundations of Svaroopa® Yoga puts all the most important poses in one course, the foundational poses. These are the basics, just like learning your a-b-c’s makes you able to read. These poses give you a type of physical intelligence, an enlivenment and ability to live in your body in a whole new way. More importantly, they target your spinal tensions, providing profound spinal decompression. It is healing and rejuvenating, but more — it opens up your mystical essence of being, called svaroopa.
Best of all, it’s likely to make you want to teach. How great! Once you find out how easy it is to make a profound change in someone’s life, you’ll want to share it. And sharing it is even better than doing it. It’s like sharing a carrot cupcake or a dark chocolate bar. It just tastes better when you share.
