Program Details

For all levels.

Come discover an entirely different way to live in your body, through a yoga style that decompresses your spine. Svaroopa® Yoga techniques and teachings offer profound inner experiences in just a few days. This full-immersion program includes classes, anatomy training, partner poses, chanting, and meditation. You learn

  • The primary poses and principles of Svaroopa Yoga
  • Hands-on adjustments to help others with their poses
  • Key tantric sutras and how they relate to the physical openings you are experiencing.

This program guarantees deep opening on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Upon satisfactory completion, you are qualified to teach introductory Svaroopa Yoga classes.

Required reading (during course) Wynn Kapit and Lawrence M. Elson, The Anatomy Coloring Book, 4th Edition.

Note Bring The Anatomy Coloring Book with you or purchase it in the Kripalu Shop. This program involves deep inner work but is accessible to new yogis. The intensive nature of this workshop precludes participation in other Kripalu events or Healing Arts services. Pregnant students may attend this course after their first trimester, or during their first trimester only if they were practicing Svaroopa Yoga before they became pregnant. Successful completion of this Foundations program fulfills the prerequisite for Svaroopa Yoga Teacher Training, if you begin the training within six months of the Foundations course.
