Svaroopa yoga helped improve movement in my leg I injured 10 years ago.
Supremely relaxing and healing!
My neck does not hurt after today’s session. I tell people that you work miracles!
This was the best class ever! You hit every place in my body that needed to release.
Going deeper with a therapeutic yoga will heal and restore your body faster and more targeted than most
