Yoga Studio Offers Free Introductory Svaroopa Class

Time for You Yoga is hosting a free yoga class from 2 to 3:30 p.m., January 22, 2022, at its studio in Cumberland, Rhode Island, for students new to the studio to learn about Svaroopa yoga, an easy and adaptable style of yoga.

“People may not realize that Svaroopa yoga is different from other styles of yoga,” says Maria Sichel, certified Svaroopa yoga teacher and therapist. “If you can get up and down from the floor and sit in a chair, you can do this style of yoga. It makes feeling good and at ease accessible to any body.”

This session will introduce Svaroopa yoga through a short, guided awareness and four basic poses known as the Magic Four, 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. Sichel will teach the class and offer individualized attention so the poses effectively ease the body and mind. There will be time for questions throughout the class.

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
