Svaroopa Yoga

Svaroopa Yoga was founded by Tara Berch (now Swami Nirmalanada) as a way of doing Hatha Yoga from the inside out. It focuses slowly and gently releasing the tension in the muscles surrounding the spine. Poses are performed with an abundance of props and guidance from teachers.

The progression of poses is designed to start at the tailbone and slowly release tension little by little up the spine. A Svaroopa Yoga class ends with a student in Tadasana (Standing Mountain) without any tension in the spine.
