Foundations of Svaroopa® Yoga

March 14-18 2018

Downingtown Yoga and Meditation Center      

Precision with compassion, Svaroopa® yoga provides amazing pain relief as well as profound experiences of Consciousness.  This practice will change your understanding of yoga forever.  Foundations is a 5-day immersion training in Downingtown PA.  You get incredible changes in your body while learning how to provide them to others. 

Learn hands-on adjustments, props, alignments and teaching methodology for 16 poses, enough to teach intro classes in Svaroopa® yoga.  Also included are meditation, yoga philosophy, anatomy, partner pairing, stories from the ancient sages and an intro to the chanting of Sanskrit texts. 

Your yoga-full days also include your housing, meals, snacks and breaks, with lots of yoga classes and deep guided relaxations.  You’ll be amazed at how this yoga relaxes and energizes you.  It makes you able to learn in a whole new way – organically.  Easily.

"Exceeded my expectations. Loved the feeling of yoga community and the respect everyone had for the practice. Amazed at the details of the practice and found the intro to philosophy fascinating."

You learn how to design classes or your own yoga practice session for the most benefit in the shortest time.  And you'll know how to help others with customized alignments and props for them to get maximum results with minimum effort. During the course, your knowledge of each pose builds day by day, pose by pose, especially while working in partner-pairs to give and receive coaching and adjustments in every pose.

"I came not knowing what to expect – but simply wanting to know, understand, and feel the effects of Svaroopa® Yoga in a more complete way. This course did that for me...and SO much MORE!" 

Come early and join us for the Half-Day Workshop: Deepen your Foundations at 9:00 am on March 14th.
