Bliss is the essence of your own Being

HALF – DAY Workshops, Saturday – 1:30 am – 4:30 pm

July 22 – Bliss Workshop  Rescheduled!

It’s all about bliss, tapping into the deep and delicious recesses of Being to experience directly what we are made of. Poses selected precisely, aligned and propped meticulously will facilitate spinal release and deep core opening. This core (spine) opening that is so unique to Svaroopa®yoga is meant to give you what yoga promises, the experience of Svaroopa – Bliss of your own Being. As the angles in poses will “beam” into your spine (conduit of Consciousness), you will ease naturally and organically inward to your innermost essence, as well as open up to the bliss all around you. No prior experience required.

Sept 30 – Fantastic ABS

To find your abs and use them effectively is absolutely essential in preventing major postural as well as internal imbalances. In this workshop you will learn to identify, use and finesse the layers of abdominals that you perhaps haven’t used before, or even did not know you have them.

It is essential to learn how to use your abdominal muscles instead of using your spinal muscles. Most people are actually using their spinal muscles and back muscles for everything they do, even to brush their teeth! You must find and activate your abdominals in order to quit tightening your spine. Your neck and shoulders will stay more open, as well.

In this workshop you will learn how to use your abdominal muscles in a whole new way that will increase your strength, long lasting stamina, and improve your digestion. You will also discover and understand how abdominal strength is correlated with “deeper” digestion and emotions. As you learn how to activate and use your ABS instead of spinal muscles, you will gain more clarity of mind, focus, and ease-full decisiveness. Find your abs and your voice; learn to meet life’s challenges with confidence, joy and enthusiasm.

Oct 14 – Healthy Joints (Pawanmuktasana series)

Pawan-means air, mukta-means to free or liberate. Pawanmukta means you are freeing air from joints, air which had been trapped in there due to a muscle tension. The main idea behind these yoga poses-Pawanmuktasanas is to provide suppleness in the areas of body joints and remove the hardness of the muscles, gently stretching all joints in the body in all directions. Through increased range of movement you will learn to live in a more flexible and open body and mind.These movements are excellent for people suffering from rheumatic arthritis, high blood pressure, or for people with heart problems.

We will approach Pawanmuktasanas form Svaroopa® yoga perspective with the spine in mind as being the core of body. Pawanmuktasanas can be practiced by anyone: young, old, those in good health, and those in poor health. As you will discover, these are not challenging postures, but they should be respected due to the great value they bring. No previous experience is necessary.
