Be Your Bliss

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Bliss is your true nature. The science of Bliss is both mystical and accessible: it is as close to you as your very own breath. This weekend explores the power of Ujjayi Pranayama, Svaroopa® yoga’s primary breathing practice, and the well supported and precise alignments of Svaroopa® Yoga Bliss Poses. Whether you are an advanced yogi or a beginner, this weekend is for you: an opportunity to quiet your mind and experience the profound physical healing of the deeper poses. With compassion and ease, Yogeshwari (Lissa) will guide you through an interweaving of these physical openings with contemplations from the ancient texts. This grounding in bliss makes you able to carry your bliss into your everyday life. Discover how easy it is to dissolve the mental and physical tensions that block you from the inner knowing of svaroopa: the bliss of your own being.

Grounded in Your Blissful Self

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Let go of juggling everything while trying to hold it all together. Become grounded in your blissful Self and re-connect with this deep inner knowing. Real balance comes from a place of surrender, while remaining stable and solidly planted in your feet and in your life. Integrating Svaroopa® Yoga’s core opening practices throughout the weekend, you’ll learn standing poses that teach you to lean into the solid ground beneath your feet and within your own Self. Yogeshwari will lead you through a dynamic weekend of Self discovery, with poses and meditation, providing reliable and deep changes in your body, mind and more.

The Inner Sound of Healing: Yoga and Your Breath

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Discover the healing power of your breath by spending a weekend exploring Svaroopa® yoga’s primary breathing practice, Ujjayi Pranayama. This “sounding breath” is a source of your own healing and is already full and complete within you, yet you are only tapping into a small portion of it. Allow Lissa Yogeshwari Fountain to guide you through this transformative process of learning how your breath really works, while accessing it’s fullest capacity. To help with this, Svaroopa® yoga’s core opening poses will release your spinal tensions, freeing your life force, your prana, to flow unimpeded through your spine. Along with chanting, meditation and partner yoga, this weekend will uplift your whole sense of self, energizing and enlivening your body and connecting to your own inner source.

More Alive, More Joyous, More You

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Explore your body and mind’s true potential for expansive joy and centered living. Lissa (Yogeshwari) leads you through a weekend of gentle yet powerful backbend poses, designed to release the crunch in your low back by unfurling and lengthening your tailbone. As you age, you get more rounded over and contracted. Backbends reverse this by decompressing your spine. You’ll look and feel younger, healthier, and more vibrantly alive. This weekend will also help you fine tune your body’s alignments and the use of your abdominals, and well as centering you through discourses, chanting, meditation and partner sharing. Discover a new lift and openness in your spine that will enable you to access greater joy within, and grow into the fullness of your own Self.

Opening Your Heart: Inside & Outside

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Release your fears, and open your heart more fully by finding the Divine within you. Unlock the knots behind your heart that keep you from experiencing your own inner essence, so you find the true freedom of living with your guard down. Yogeshwari will guide you through Svaroopa® Yoga's heart opening poses that target the tightly held areas of your spine, beginning at your tailbone. Discourse, chanting and meditation will be interwoven throughout the weekend. As a result, a new surge of joy will spread through your heart and mind, basing you in a deeper knowing of the Self, one that opens you more fully to life and to everyone you share it with. It is the experience of your own divinity that makes this possible in the midst of life.

Peaceful Easy Feeling: A Weekend for Healing, Strength & Peace

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Open into the challenges of life and breathe. Everything you need is within you. Discover healing, strength & peace arising from within your own being. It's all there waiting to be unleashed, waiting to enhance your experience of life. You will leave this weekend deeply connected to your inner source, fully alive and ready to embrace the world.

Standing on Sacred Ground

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Don’t just do something: Stand there! Feel the sacred ground beneath your feet. Discover the sacredness of your own body as you stand on that ground. Discover the sacredness of Tadasana: yoga’s standing pose of inner stillness and Divine Beingness.  This weekend workshop includes Svaroopa® Yoga Core Opening poses, chanting and meditation. It provides an integrative foundation for feeling more grounded, strong, open and present in your daily life.  Learn to stand with a relaxed spine and a quiet mind, experiencing your Self wherever you are.

Yoga & Meditation: The Bliss of a Quiet Mind

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Begin the new year  from a deeper place within yourself. Be open to all that life brings, with a quiet mind and happy body.  Svaroopa® yoga excels in quieting your mind, by releasing the core tension in your spine, starting at your tailbone.  Explore the value of a quiet and blissful mind, by learning to live in your body, and not in your head.  Melt your physical tension by recognizing the root cause: your mind!  You can think yourself into exhaustion and pain faster than anything you can do with your body!  With grace and a light touch, Yogeshwari will lead you through Svaroopa® Yoga poses, chanting and meditation.  Return home with tools to keep you connected to Self, your essence of beingness: refreshed and renewed in body, mind and spirit.

The Yoga of Yes

Taught by Turn on Javascript!

Live the life of a yogi, one who is always willing to live in, “Yes”! Be present to whatever is happening in the moment with equanimity of mind and an open spine. Discover a new ease and confidence while moving through your life without fear and resistance. Yoga will show you the way. This Svaroopa® yoga weekend focuses on deep core openings, beginning at the tailbone, as well as mastering a fun and freeing Vinyasa series: linking poses with your breath in an easy flow. With Lissa (Yogeshwari)’s graceful guidance, learn to respond instead of react, and to live more fully without hesitation or self doubt. To integrate the whole experience, the weekend will include chanting, meditation and contemplations. You will return home refreshed, renewed and committed to living the life of a yogi: one who is empowered to say “Yes!".
