Foundations of Svaroopa® Yoga

June 8 - 12 2022

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

Whether you are a new yogi, an experienced Svaroopi or coming from another yoga style — Foundations of Svaroopa® Yoga will give you a deep experience and the information you need to practice yoga on your own at home or to share your yoga with others. Learn how to get the most benefit from your practice with refined techniques, as well as a clear understanding of how it works.

"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."

Learn the most important poses of Svaroopa® Yoga, the Primary Spinal Openers, which are used at all levels of practice from introductory through advanced classes. Take them home with you or use Foundations as the prerequisite course for our Teacher Training programs.  Successful completion of Foundations qualifies you to be certified as an Introductory Teacher of Svaroopa® Yoga. 

Even if you don't want to teach, 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!"
