Yoga Studio Offers Introductory Svaroopa Class

Time for You Yoga is hosting a free Newcomers’ yoga class from 2 to 3:30 p.m., September 25, 2021 at its studio in Cumberland, Rhode Island, for students new to the studio. Participants are invited to explore how Svaroopa yoga can help them feel better and learn how this style of yoga is radically different: easy to do and adaptable for every body.

This session will introduce Svaroopa yoga through four basic poses known as the Magic Four, a short, guided awareness and time for questions. The Magic Four is a sequence of beginning Svaroopa poses that target specific parts of the spine to unravel tension. The poses are adapted to each student and use chairs, blocks and blankets for support and propping. The class will be taught by the studio’s instructors Maria Sichel, Janice O’Brien and Suzanne Lincoln, offering individualized attention, so the poses effectively ease the body and mind.

Sichel explains, “Stress and tension are like boulders in a riverbed blocking the flow of energy.  Svaroopa yoga offers people tools to remove those blocks. As tension in the spine is decompressed, inner healing and bliss are unlocked.”

No yoga mat or prior yoga experience is needed. Class space is limited, and reservations are required. Reserve a spot by calling the studio. Dress comfortably and plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the class start time.

Cost: Free. Location: 2155 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland, RI. For more information, call Maria Sichel at 401-305-5319 or visit
