  • Virtual Svaroopa Yoga

    Ron Bushner
    Wednesdays 6:30 -7:30 pm and Thursdays  11am-12:30pm 

    Svaroopa® Yoga is a complete system of yoga that quiets the mind and opens the body to its own natural, easy alignment.   

    Classes begin with Guided Body Awareness and Ujjayi breathing that calms the nervous system and refines awareness of the body.

    In Svaroopa® Yoga, asanas carefully prop the body to precisely align the bones and joints.  This support allows release of tension in the muscles deeply embedded in the body—the muscles along the spine from the tailbone to the top of the neck. This decompresses the vertebrae and discs, allowing the musculoskeletal system to find its natural alignment.  Svaroopa® enlivens neuromuscular function and improves functional strength in everyday life.

    Classes end in Savasana, giving the body and mind the opportunity to fully integrate the experience of the practices.

    Svaroopa® Yoga is grounded in Kashmiri Shaivism and the idea that our innermost selves hold the divine energy that sparked us into this life. The practices of Svaroopa® Yoga make this inherent divinity and inner peace more accessible.
