YogaBody Classroom Therapeutics

Online Begins Tuesday August 13

Onsite Training Begins Tuesday
October 8

Online & Onsite

Unravel your deepest spinal tensions with these therapeutic poses, combining classical pose angles with repetitive movement and breath. 

Gurudevi created this methodology over 30 years ago, incorporating some of it into Advanced Teacher Training poses.  She named it YogaBody, as it is a way of doing deep bodywork with yoga poses.

During the pandemic, Gurudevi created Teaching Online Therapeutics (TOT) with some of these poses.  The online TOT trainings featured YogaBody poses that would work for Svaroopa® yoga teachers teaching online.  The poses were powerfully effective at giving students yogic improvements, including both physical changes as well as the deeper inner experiences of Consciousness.

Gurudevi has been inspired by continuing reports of how TOT is still benefiting students as well as teachers.  She is now expanding the YogaBody curriculum in this new training, which encompasses Online training for 6 weeks followed by a Training Retreat. It’s amazing how these seemingly-simple movements dissolve lifetimes of tension!  Gurudevi says,

"I’ve been inspired by my training in several bodywork methodologies, including Trager, Feldenkrais and Bowenwork, as well as how yogic breathing is used in the bodywork field." 

"I understand the underlying principles because of Kundalini, through the core opening that She has provided me – truly the foundations of Svaroopa® yoga."

"To bring all of this together is the culmination of my 50 years of experiential learning and teaching, including what I’ve learned from thousands of students.”

This will be a landmark training.  It incorporates deep spinal release with guided self-inquiry, to help you dissolve the hidden patterns in your mind-and-emotions.  It is all underscored by the meditative practices that deepen with your openings.
