This style of Yoga teaches different ways of doing familiar poses, emphasizing the opening of the spine by beginning at the tailbone and progressing through each spinal area.  Every pose integrates the foundational principles of asana, anatomy, and yoga philosophy, and emphasizes the development of transcendent inner experience. Svaroopa® Yoga,  sometimes referred to as "bliss yoga", works with yoga poses in a way that is alignment focused and compassionate.  Students find this to be a very approachable style!
