By the opening of your spinal channel, you attain the bliss of Consciousness.

Discover the most important poses of Svaroopa® Yoga, the Primary Spinal Openers. These poses 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.

During the course, your knowledge of each pose builds day by day, pose by poseThis is especially true while working in partner-pairsso you give and receive coaching and adjustments in every pose. Our comprehensive handouts help you learn the poses inside and out, as well as provide the basis for your practice or working with others.  

Even if you don't want to teach, you understand how to design classes or your own yoga practice session in order to get  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.   

Beyond the poses, the course has time every day for chanting and meditation, two of yoga’s most important practices. You’ll be deeply saturated in the flow of Grace that permeates the Svaroopa® practice. This benefits you and those you might teach.  

"I found the Foundations program to be very comprehensive. I have a better understanding of the alignments needed to deepen the poses in my own practice. It also piqued my interest in teaching the basic poses to others." - Eva C.
