How does Svaroopa® yoga differ from other styles of yoga?
Many styles of yoga either advocate or inadvertently bring about the tightening of the muscles surrounding the spine in order to accomplish the "perfect" pose. In contrast,Svaroopa® yoga emphasizes relaxing the spinal muscles. In other words, it emphasizes proper alignment for the sake of release. Instead of tightening muscles to achieve alignment, students use props to support their bodies in the proper alignment that provides maximum release. Often students who have had difficulty with other yoga classes find that they enjoy Svaroopa® yoga classes because of the use of props and the emphasis on releasing, rather than tightening, muscles. Additionally, reducing muscle tension reduces life's tensions.
