"I always look forward to coming to this class-gentle but very powerful .The pain in my lower back has diminished by about eighty-five percent. I leave class with a calm peacefulness that I can see on my face. It helps me to relax and slow down so that I'm not just in reaction mode. I feel better able to be in my life."
- A. Edwards

"About 10 years ago I had a biking accident that injured my tailbone. I had to sit on a cushion and an ice pack when I drove. Since doing this yoga I haven't needed either.  I  also had long-term severe emotional stress that released when my body released."  
- D. Molner

"I am a 911 survivor.  Svaroopaâ Yoga has done more for me than 3 years of therapy.  As I am learning to release the muscles around my spine, I am feeling the release physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually." 
- M. Wiley
