About This Style of Hatha Yoga
Body Bliss teaches a style of yoga called Svaroopa® Yoga (“svah-roo-pah”), often referred to as “bliss yoga”. Svaroopa® Yoga works with the body in a radically different way from other forms of yoga and exercise. It uses precise alignments, props and hands-on adjustments to reach into the deepest layers of spinal muscles to unravel and release tension. When those tight spinal muscles relax a domino effect of release begins working it’s way throughout the whole body. This release at the core allows other areas to release in turn, so the results are felt not only in the whole body, but also in the mind and spirit, bringing profound healing, centeredness and serenity.
What is different about Svaroopa® Yoga is the basic premise that the body releases most readily when it is physically supported, just as we relax and are most open when we feel emotionally supported. Therefore, props like thick blankets and chairs are often used to provide ease in the postures.
The most singular effect of Svaroopa® Yoga is found in the results, letting go of what is not you, the contractions in body, mind and spirit, so that you live the truth of who you are!
