Svaroopa® Yoga at The Zen Room
Jan 28, 2012 08:45PM
A new style of yoga is available in Brevard: Svaroopa® Yoga. Instructor Jeanne-Marie Plourde recently relocated from Boston and now shares this unique and therapeutic style of yoga with local residents.
“This form of yoga utilizes a radically different approach and can give you a new way to think about asana practice. In essence, the practice creates a core opening by releasing the tensions in the deepest layers of the body,” explains Jeanne-Marie, adding that it is a form that can be used by people at any level of fitness, flexibility, or age.
The poses in Svaroopa Yoga begin at the tailbone and progress through the spinal area using props such as blankets and blocks. "You don’t need to bring your mat,” says Jeanne-Marie, “The entire class is done mostly on the back and on soft blankets.” Continuing students develop increased awareness of the body and deepening release to the muscles surrounding the spine.
Classes are being held at The Zen Room in Cocoa Village, Wednesday mornings at 9:30am. Jeanne-Marie is also available for private yoga therapy sessions. Visit www.thezenroom.info for more information or email Jeanne-Marie at [email protected]
