About Svaroopa® Yoga & Meditation
Svaroopa is Sanskrit for your own “true form.” Experiencing your true form is the purpose of yoga, defined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. This is the goal of all our practices. This experience is unmistakable, the unparalleled bliss of your own Beingness — the discovery of your own inherent Divinity.
Svaroopa® yoga uses body and breath to access your innermost essence, by decompressing your spine so your innermost current of energy flows unimpeded from tail to top. Our classes are well known for their precision, our teachers for their compassion and our practice for its immediate bliss and profound healing power. Svaroopa® yoga is a sophisticated system, with highly trained teachers and a focus on consciousness.
Svaroopa® vidya is Sanskrit for the experiential knowing (vidya) of your own inherent Divinity (svaroopa). Swami Nirmalananda gives teachings as well as initiation to open up your experiential knowing of your own innermost essence, which is already full, complete and whole, within you.
Swamiji says, "This is about you. This is about how you feel, and about who you feel yourself to be. When you know your own Self, you experience an inner depth and joy. You live in freedom and fearlessness which overflows into a beautiful generosity and love for all."
Swamiji opens and closes every program with this Sanskrit phrase, OM svaroopa svasvabhavah namo namah. It means, "I bow to your inherent Divinity, that Beingness that is being you. Again and again, I bow."
While working with your body, Svaroopa® yoga opens up the full spectrum of your being. Spiritual insights and profound healings happen without any sweat. Slower yoga, consciously aligned and leveraged for multi-dimensional openings, means you get it all.
