September 2023

Online TOT class


Kim (K.rtakarii) Lodge

10.30am to 12pm

Saturday, 23rd September


(Please book) 



TOT stands for Teaching Online Therapeutics.

Designed by Gurudevi to teach online during Covid, some of our teachers are now qualified to bring this method to you in specially planned online classes.

Experience the deep inner changes when you are not in the classroom receiving hands on adjustments.

These powerful, therapeutic pose variations use complementary muscles to get spinal release. You use abs, legs and arms along with breath and movement in ways you haven't  in your basic poses. All of this helps you to get deeper openings in your body and provides deeper experiences in subsequent poses and in your final Shavasana.

K.rtakarii (Kim) will guide you through the process of setting your intention (sankalpa) and support you week by week on your 21 day meditation journey

'Walking Workshop'



1pm to 3.30pm

Saturday, 18th November

at 209 Randall Rd, Wynnum West

Cost: $50 ASYA members

$55 non members

(Please book) 

Whilst the emphasis in the practice of Svaroopa® Yoga is on releasing the core tensions in the body, it is also desirable to develop the ability to move in the world without creating new tensions or even reinstating old ones. Much of our time we are standing and walking.  This workshop is about integrating what we find in our body in the classroom into these everyday activities. Move and walk with ease and comfort all of the time! Includes Svaroopa® Yoga Walking Lessons:)

This will be a two hour workshop in the studio followed by a 20 minute walk in the neighbourhood - bring your walking shoes!

Foundations of Svaroopa®  Yoga Course

Monday, 4th March to Saturday, 9th March 2024


Tania's studio

209 Randall Rd, Wynnum West Qld 4178 

With Kamala (Michelle) Gross


Learn the foundational poses that reveal yoga’s promise, to know who and what you really are — Consciousness.  

This course provides a deep experience and the information you need to practice yoga on your own at home or to share your yoga with others. 

Whether you are a new yogi, an experienced Svaroopi or coming from another yoga style, learn how to get the most benefit from your practice.  Refined techniques and a clear understanding of how this yoga works show you the way. 

Madhya-vikaasaach-chidaananda-laabha.h – Pratyabhij~nah.rdayam 17

By the opening of your spinal channel, you attain the bliss of Consciousness.

Discover the most important poses of Svaroopa® Yoga, the Primary Spinal Openers. These poses are used at all levels of practice, from introductory through to advanced classes.  Take them home with you or use  Foundations as the prerequisite course for our Teacher Training programs. 

During the course, your knowledge of each pose builds day by day, pose by pose. This is especially true while working in partner-pairs, so you give and receive coaching and adjustments in every pose. Our comprehensive handouts help you learn the poses inside and out, as well as provide the basis for your practice or working with others.  

Even if you don't want to teach, you understand how to design classes or your own yoga practice session in order to get  the most benefit in the shortest time.   And you'll know how to help others with customised alignments and props for them to get maximum results with minimum effort.   

Beyond the poses, the course has time every day for chanting and meditation, two of yoga’s most important practices. You’ll be deeply saturated in the flow of Grace that permeates the Svaroopa® practice. This benefits you and those you might teach.  

"I found the Foundations program to be very comprehensive. I have a better understanding of the alignments needed to deepen the poses in my own practice. It also piqued my interest in teaching the basic poses to others." - Eva C.

Become an Embodyment® Yoga Therapist and give the experience of profound spinal release to anyone, by placing your hands on key areas of their spine. Learn to do Svaroopa® yoga's hands-on-healing therapy, so you can offer sessions to students, family and friends.

Get more spinal opening for yourself than in any other training, by both giving and receiving sessions every day. Deepen your understanding of the anatomy of the spine and explore the sutras from the Pratyabhijnahrdayam that explain how Embodyment® works.

This course expands and uplifts your teaching abilities and prepares you to give private sessions, which radically increases your income potential. You are eligible to take Embodyment® after your Foundations course, in order to begin your career as a yoga therapist as well as maintain your professional credentials with Continuing Education. This training is also part of Yoga Teacher Training (YTT).

You will not only experience significant change within your own body, you will learn a valuable skill to share with both your students and general population.

Like so many Svaroopa® courses, Embodyment® is an experience that you shouldn't miss. It will change your life, affect the way you perceive the world, your body & your mind. It's an opportunity not to be missed.
