'TOT Class'


Kim (K.rtakarii) Lodge


Saturday 25th May

10am to 11.30am

online with Zoom



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.


"I liked the use of breath and movement; it kept me focused with a deep inner body awareness and a calm state after the pose. Feeling the use of my hamstrings has been beneficial to my walk and standing."​

"I felt the changes having an effect on my whole body, my body felt long and at ease. I felt my collar bones soften and widen with the release going up into my neck and head."

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.

Shaktipat Retreat


Gurudevi Nirmalananda

(for Australia)

November 29 - December 1


Recognize and revel in your own spiritual essence. Be empowered by a spiritual master who can open your access to the powerful flow of meditative energy within. This profound inward path is revealed when you receive Shaktipat initiation from Satguru Swami Nirmalananda (Gurudevi).

Yo’ vipastho' – Shiva Sutras 3.29

Only one with mastery over Kundalini is competent to enlighten others. Such a Guru empowers you to realize your spiritual essence.

Shaktipat initiation awakens your Kundalini, the Divine Energy within you, so that you may attain the highest goal of human life – knowing your own Self. When awakened by the Guru, Kundalini climbs your spine from tail to top. She is the mystical force granting the power and ease of all the Svaroopa® sciences.

You receive formal Shaktipat initiation from Gurudevi twice in this weekend meditation retreat. She is a Kundalini Master, authorized to transmit this powerful initiation. She explains the process and purpose as well as how you cooperate with the inner force that is burning within you, in-light-ening you day by day.

Absolutely wonderful spiritual experience. I was so honored to meet such a great Guru and Kundalini Master; this is truly a life changing experience. - Alena T.

Your spiritual progress is accelerated by receiving Shaktipat. This inner experience leads to enlightenment sooner or later, and Shaktipat makes it happen sooner. That’s the whole point!

The profound inward path of Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation begins with Shaktipat. Discover a whole new dimension to your own being and learn tools that help you bring that into your life.

When someone is ready to go deeper and learn more, this retreat with Gurudevi includes deep teachings. The transmission of Shaktipat awakens the understanding of these teachings. It created a deep sense of inner peace, opened my heart and left me feeling joyful! – Terry G
