Radical Anatomy for Yogis

November 2 - 5

Lokananda Retreat Center, Downingtown PA

Get beyond book-based learning in our three-day anatomy course. Use living anatomy to address the problems of pain, diagnosis and disease to discover how easy it is to dissolve the root causes of each. 

The course uses your body to enliven the anatomy book so you see and understand the instantaneous, therapeutic results of Svaroopa® Yoga. 

Map your body from your spine outward, which is the way it grew in your mother's womb. Explore a radically different paradigm about health and healing. Find out how it intersects with bliss and consciousness. – Swami Nirmalananda

Your questions lay the groundwork for the whole training. Ask about the diseases, illnesses, injuries, syndromes, and other conditions that you, your loved ones or your students face. The difference between the medical and yogic perspectives becomes clear, so you know how to draw the best from both. 

I loved the structure of the program, looking at the different diseases, etc. and seeing how everything connected. – Pam C.

Wonderful program for helping "embody" anatomy and the teachings. Loved the balance between experiential and talk. – Phil M.

This full-immersion weekend uses Svaroopa® Yoga poses to turn your anatomy lessons into breakthroughs. Powerful poses and working with partners clarify anatomical principles. You will understand your body in a whole new way and have new tools to make a difference.

You will never look at anatomy the same way again. – Kelly S.

The experiential components were mind blowing! – Kelly G.

Learn hands-on adjustments and alignments for 16 poses as well as their relationship to the chakras. Also included are meditation, yoga philosophy, anatomy, partner pairing, stories from the ancient sages and chanting in Sanskrit. 

Your yoga-full days include your housing, meals, snacks and breaks. You’ll be amazed at how Svaroopa® yoga changes your body – how fast! How easy! How blissfully!

Svaroopa® Yoga

Take Charge of Your Body

Western medicine excels at three things: emergency care, surgery and biochemistry. Yet medicine’s failures include many common maladies, all of which Svaroopa® yoga excels at treating. You really can take charge of your own healing for most conditions, or use yoga as a valuable adjunct to your medical care.
