DIY: Vitality & Joy 

May 31- June 3 2018

Retreat Weekend

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

There are times in your life when you simply glow.  You are radiant and caring, moving through life with clarity and an inner ease, even when circumstances are challenging.  Yoga says you can live this way all the time.  Your inherent greatness is covered over by doubt and anxiety, sapping your vitality and blocking your inner glow.  Svaroopa® yoga unearths your hidden radiance, giving you tools you need to open up to your greatness again and again.  Until again turns into always, and you live in the fullness of your own radiance, sharing it with the world.

Cultivate your mastery of the practices that make the biggest difference.  Beyond merely (DIY) doing it yourself, learn how to (DIY) Deepen It Yourself.  We customize your poses to meet your needs, so you get the most results in the shortest time. You’ll feel incredibly different by the end of the weekend and take practices home that empower you to continue there. 

The key poses are covered in detail, including detailed handouts that focus on your personal progress.  Daily partner-pose processes give you a deeper understanding of the poses.  Once you've helped your partner find and feel these moves in their body, it's easier to find in your body - plus they help you.

Under Swami Nirmalananda's guidance, your other practices also deepen.  Our DIY long weekend includes the breadth and depth of the Svaroopa® yoga practices:

   ▼ poses            ▼ yogic breathing practices       ▼ chanting        ▼ meditation     

   ▼ vichara          ▼ practical anatomy lessons      ▼ sutra study    ▼ and more.

These many dimensions of Svaroopa®  yoga reveal new depths, so you gain profound openings on every level: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

Come early and join us for the Half-Day Workshop: Freedom in Movement at 2:00 am on May 31st.

Svaroopa® Yoga

Beyond your Limitations 

The quality of life is not based on how much you do but on how much you let go; not on how far you go, but on how open and easy you are. Svaroopa® yoga dissolves physical limitations as well as mental, emotional and spiritual blocks, to open up the way you live inside your own skin.
