Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA
Your life is imperfect. You’ve noticed. Even with all your hard work, so many wonderful things and so many blessings, there's always something off. “If only everything were perfect, then I'd be happy,” they say. But yoga says that happiness lies within, and you can tap into it at any time, even when life is imperfect.
When you tap into your own inner source of infinite happiness, you’ll not only be happy. You’ll also be better at handling life’s difficulties. This is because the happiness yoga opens up in you also gives you clarity and fortitude. Learn a new way to live in this amazing yoga weekend, designed to change your life by changing your inner state. Return home with tools to continue your inner expansion.
DIY usually means “Do It Yourself,” but in yoga it’s about how you “Deepen It Yourself.” Each long weekend cultivates your mastery of the practices that make the biggest difference. You study poses related to the weekend’s theme, with detailed pose handouts on each. Partner pairing increases the benefit you get from the poses while it deepens your experience. 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.
Every pose is customized 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.
Under Swami Nirmalananda's guidance, your other practices also deepen. Each DIY 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 within you. You gain profound openings on every level: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

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.
