Eighteen months ago I was introduced to Svaroopa® yoga due to an unresolved back issue. In the first month, I was relieved from the physical pain that had nagged me for over 10 years, through asana and Embodyment® yoga therapy sessions. What I didn’t expect was how yoga was beginning to open me into the knowing of my Self.
While my own daily practice, continued Embodyment® sessions and yoga classes kept opening my body, I needed more. My teacher suggested I begin a meditation practice and pointed me towards Swami Nirmalananda and Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram. I started looking into everything that SVA had to offer and was a little confused. Why was there one organization, Master Yoga Foundation, that taught asana and another, Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram, that taught meditation? To me it seemed like the two organizations were two sides of the same coin.
When Master Yoga’s Board voted to consolidate with Svaroopa>® Vidya Ashram, I felt a shift as the two sides of the coin began to merge back together. The result is one organization, Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram continues to offer the same Teacher Trainings you already know as well as the meditative practices.
Two sides of the same coin. Both sides take you to svaroopa, the experience of your own inherent divinity. It’s up to you to choose which side works best for you. Or do both, like me…
