Therapeutic Yoga Series
Begins July 25 2022
Yoga Therapy in a Small Group
Accelerate your healing process in our three-week therapeutic class series. Join with one or two other students twice weekly for more personal attention than a regular class provides. Learn things you can do for yourself between the classes, further improving your progress.
Yoga is well-known for its healing power, as cited in a Sanskrit text from 1,000 years ago:
Yoga poses make one firm, free from maladies and light of limb.
- Hatha Yoga Pradipika 1.17
Every class includes an intake interview, individual assessment, personalized Svaroopa® yoga poses, evaluation of outcome, and guidance for your at-home healing practices. Your therapist follows up with you between classes to answer your questions and further support you in the process.
"This yoga took pain therapy to an entirely new level for me. Please pass on my compliments as you see fit. I certainly have a better appreciation for yoga." - Stan N.
"I have been working on my leg pain. It has been very helpful, and I will continue on."
- Jerry B.
How is this series different from other Svaroopa® Yoga classes?
This is yoga therapy. The focus is on healing — yogic healing — which is multi-dimensional healing. Your teacher is a yoga therapist. She will not be teaching you poses like you see in yoga videos, but will be guiding you through therapeutic yoga practices specifically for your needs. She is focused on your healing goals.
How many classes do I get in the series? How many people in my class?
Your series includes 2 classes per week for 3 weeks, a total of 6 classes. Class size is limited to two or three students, so you get the personal attention you need. By participating in small group therapeutics, you get the results of private sessions but at less than half the cost.
How long is each of my classes?
Each class is 90 minutes, like most Svaroopa® yoga classes. This does last longer than our usual 60-minute yoga therapy session. The extra time is so your yoga therapist can take care of two or three students at the same time. This means you sometimes have a brief wait while your yoga therapist is assisting someone else. The longer session also provides for you to have the full Shavasana-Guided Awareness experience at the end of each class.
What about my privacy in a group setting?
Your personal details are treated with the greatest confidentiality. In class, your teacher will make generalized comments like, “This pose helps with neck problems.” If you have neck problems, you know that she is talking to you. All discussions about your personal needs are done in a separate phone call or in a private breakout session during the class.
You may also find that the others in your group are supportive of anything you might choose to share. Just as you enjoy supporting others, they feel the same toward you. Being able to support others as well as to accept support is a powerful pathway to healing.
