The word svaroopa comes from the ancient yoga texts, Patanjali’s yoga sutra which states, “Tadaa Drashtuh Svarupa Vasthaanum”, which translates to mean at the moment your mind becomes quiet you will abide in the bliss of your own being. From the first shavasana (total body awareness) pose at the beginning of class throughout every pose an emphasis is put upon awareness of the state of your body and mind. Quieting your mind toward bliss.
