SAVY 50+ Yoga – Yoga for the 50 Plus

 50+ Yoga

“First, follow the truth, and then truth will follow you…. In the beginning, it is true that confidence and trust are necessary, but as you continue to practice, every step will bring more and more hope and greater confidence. If we are Yogis just even for one day, we will be transformed for ever and would want more of it.”

-The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 2.36

If you are 50+, yoga is certainly for you!

By the time you reach 50, your heart has beaten more than 1.5 billion times, your lungs have taken over 400 million breaths, you’ve laughed, loved, won, and lost.

One thing you never want to lose is your health.

The human body is a durable machine. It operates without interruption, day after day, year after year. But are you taking the right steps to keep this vital machine as healthy as possible through mid-life and beyond?

At SAVY, we guide you to maintain and improve your health! We offer some very specialised, effective programs for mature adults, viz., programs for 50+, Part-time Personnel, Retired Personnel and Seniors. 

Mature adults have always received a very warm welcome in our classes; some of them come to recover from years of neglect of their bodies or the assault of years of intense exercise, or of practising unsuitable pseudo-yoga routines, while others join in to prevent heart disease and osteoporosis and the general rigidity and weakness that may set in with age, and some are there even to actually recover from these problems and more serious health issues. While we have always had some yoga classes dedicated to the health of 50+ group, by introducing 50 Plus Yoga, we’ll be earmarking more classes which are more suitable for those around 50 or more mature adults, though they are always welcome to join us in any of our classes.

50+ Yoga can make you relax within a few minutes. Its effect penetrates the physical, mental and spiritual levels. This consists of gentle stretching and coordinated breathing, and breathing exercises, that result in deep relaxation. It includes easy exercises for the eyes, tongue and jaws, neck, hands, feet, knees, ankles and hips. The whole body, from head to toe, is treated, relaxed and rejuvenated. These exercises stimulate, balance and energise the Marma points and Chakras and optimise neuronal and hormone health of the physical body. External and internal body parts undergo deep transformation over a period of time. These scientific exercises not only make us stronger and more supple, but also help remove impurities from the body and improve the memory, concentration and will-power.

With age, in fact, after the age of 40 and sometimes even earlier, we start losing joint mobility and balance, as well as muscle and bone mass and stiffness sets in as the spine loses its mass and mobility. By age 45, we start paying for our sins. Neck and back problems, knee pain, hip joint problems, high blood pressure and tons of other problems start showing up by middle life. Aging is multifactorial and many other factors also play an important role. Consequently, almost all of those 45 and over have to learn to live with one or the other health issue.

Yoga is the best anti-aging potion that can be there! One can slow down ageing with yoga, or even reverse the ageing process with advanced yoga. Yogic exercises act by opening the postures and moving each joint through its full range of movement and counter the effects of gravity by lengthening the spine. Different elements of yoga need to be emphasised for different age-groups: the emphasis for the younger yogi is building and challenging the body, by midlife, the focus is on maintaining optimum health including injury prevention through yoga lifestyle (e.g. mindset, biomechanics, safe user-friendly routines, advanced breathing techniques (Pranayama), proper food choices, rest and relaxation). In yoga, the age of a person is determined by the age of the spine, and also by the length of the sciatic nerve. So, by working on these principles while avoiding the damage caused by intense exercises or wrong exercise routines, one can hope to stay healthy.

SAVY 50 + Yoga routines address some key issues:

  • People starting yoga around age 50 and later usually come to class with various health issues commonly associated with the ageing process, such as increasing stiffness, back and neck pain, kyphosis, problems with balance, arthritis, osteoporosis, knee and hip replacements, heart health and blood pressure issues. Slow paced classes with slow stretches and breathing exercises help people recover. We have seen miraculous health improvements happen in our classes.
  • Starting with simple lying down poses that are generally safe for everyone is the routine practice at SAVY. We introduce students to more challenging poses, such as leg stretches, hip openers and twists, in a graded manner. Slow and gentle allows the body to go deeper into the poses.
  • With so many like-minded, similarly aged people around, motivation level improves quickly. So, the challenge of convincing people that it’s something they need to do, is more than met.
  • It’s sometimes particularly hard for many older men and seasoned yogis to slow down, or not try to replicate what someone younger and more adept in the class is doing. The threshold for when to slow down is individual – it depends on when you started yoga and what shape you’re in. Some 70 years olds may be stronger or more flexible than an out-of-shape 25 years old. Still, we always caution to observe and be cautious about individual limits to avoid injury.
  • Use of props may encourage students to go a little further than their body permits. We have always discouraged the use of any props in our classes.
  • The focus is more on maintenance and improvement of function with practice. The purpose, key areas of focus and limitations in each pose are explained well to understand that.
  • Everybody gets individual attention at SAVY Studio, be it a larger or a smaller group. That helps avoid injury.
  • Everybody can benefit from yoga. Pranayama aids further in internal healing of the body, mind and spirit.
  • It’s important to keep the head below heart level for at least 10 minutes. So, we include inverted poses in routines which everyone can do.
  • We practice in a way that is appropriate, soothing and healing. We never force and always avoid poses that bear weight directly on the neck and head.
  • We advise modifications of challenging poses to make it easy for those who find it difficult to do them.
  • We focus on exercises which lengthen the spine.
  • We teach to move from hip joints instead of bending back and neck too much during bending poses.

Universe

Origin of World – The Creation Story

Creation Story

Where did we come from? Where did this universe come from? Why is our Universe the way we see it to be? And what will ultimately become of it? These are the fundamental questions which have long been intriguing mankind even from the pre-historic era. The journey towards understanding the creation has been long. Since the 1929 discovery that Universe is expanding, man has made some significant steps in understanding how the Universe began and how it must have evolved to be what it is today. We know this: galaxies and clusters of galaxies formed from tiny fluctuations in the early Universe. We can measure these fluctuations by mapping the cosmic background radiation and relate them to the structures which we observe today.

The picture of universe we see today is more complete and much richer. The cosmos is said to have begun 13.7 billion years ago with the big bang. A fraction of a second after the beginning, the universe was a hot, formless soup of the most elementary particles, quarks and leptons. As it expanded and cooled, layer on layer of structure developed: neutrons and protons, atomic nuclei, atoms, stars, galaxies, clusters of galaxies, and finally super-clusters. The universe has so far been discovered to host 100 billion galaxies, each containing 100 billion stars and probably a similar number of planets. Galaxies themselves are held together by the gravity of the mysterious dark matter. The universe continues to expand and indeed does so at an accelerating pace, driven by dark energy, an even more mysterious form of energy whose gravitational force repels rather than attracts.

All this is amazing, intriguing and mind-boggling! However, we are now discovering that the concepts about origin of universe given in the old Sanskrit text Rig Veda also seem to stand the scrutiny of scientific minds. The parallels between Rig Veda Creation Story and what is being theorized by modern day physicists and confirmed by modern science are astoundingly and astonishingly similar. How and what could have led to the discovery of these scientific facts by the sages who did not even have any sophisticated instruments at their disposal except their well-developed consciousness? We need to have an honest peep into what they said and understand their way of working to get an idea of the greatness of their work and put things in the right perspective.

Rig Veda Creation Story does not talk about any external creation or creator. The universe is a result of manifestation of Para-brahman, the supreme consciousness. Hence, there is nothing externally created.

Rig Veda Creation Story professes there are times when the universe takes form and times when it dissolves back into nothingness. The in-between times are known as the days and nights of Brahma, the Hindu god of creation.

It is interesting to note that Rig Veda in its 10th Mandala explains beautifully the concept in a Suktha called Nasadiya Suktha.

 

Rig Veda 10:129 – Nasadiya Suktha

Neither existence nor nonexistence was there. Neither matter nor space around. What covered it, where it was and who protected? Why, that plasma, all pervading, deep and profound?

Neither death nor immortality was there. And there was neither day nor night But for that breathless one breathing on its own. There was nothing else, surely nothing.

It was darkness concealed in darkness. And an uninterrupted continuum of fluid. Out came in material form and shape. That one lying deep inside, on its own intent.

In the cosmic mind, all pervading. Desire, the primal seed made its first appearance. And the wise men, seeking deep in their heart; could see the link between ‘that is’ and ‘that is not’.

Reins of the link, a grid of crisscross lines, Holds all the seeds and mighty forces, Microcosmic forces within And macro forces out above.

Who really knows, who can declare. When it started or where from? And where will the creation end? Seekers and sought entered later – And so who knows when all this manifested?

That one, out of which the creation came, May hold the reins or not, Perceiving all from above, That one alone Knows the beginning – may not know too.

Before time began there was no heaven, no earth and no space between. A vast dark ocean washed upon the shores of nothingness and licked the edges of night. A giant cobra, Sheshanaga, floated on the waters. Asleep within its endless coils lay the Lord Vishnu. He was watched over by the mighty serpent. Everything was so peaceful and silent that Vishnu slept undisturbed by dreams or motion.

From the depths a humming sound began to tremble, Om. It grew and spread, filling the emptiness and throbbing with energy. The night had ended. Vishnu awoke. As the dawn began to break, from Vishnu’s navel grew a magnificent lotus flower. In the middle of the blossom sat Vishnu’s servant, Brahma. He awaited the Lord’s command.

Vishnu spoke to his servant: ‘It is time to begin.’ Brahma bowed. Vishnu commanded: ‘Create the world.’

A wind swept up the waters. Vishnu and the serpent vanished. Brahma remained in the lotus flower, floating and tossing on the sea. He lifted up his arms and calmed the wind and the ocean. Then Brahma split the lotus flower into three. He stretched one part into the heavens. He made another part into the earth. With the third part of the flower he created the skies.

The earth was bare. Brahma set to work. He created grass, flowers, trees and plants of all kinds. To these he gave feeling. Next he created the animals and the insects to live on the land. He made birds to fly in the air and many fish to swim in the sea. To all these creatures, he gave the senses of touch and smell. He gave them power to see, hear and move.

The world was soon bristling with life and the air was filled with the sounds of Brahma’s creation.

However, a wicked demon appeared and stole the world. He threw it far out into the cosmic ocean.

Vishnu quickly killed the demon and changed into animal form to rescue the world. Brahma was delighted at the world’s safe return from the depths, for he was then able to finish his task of forming the land and all living things.

But one day, this Universe, like all others before it, will be wiped out when Lord Shiva, the destroyer, grows angry with the world’s evil. At this time, he will dance Tandava – his ferocious dance of destruction and once again there will be a time when nothing exists but Brahman.

 

Now, let us compare all this idea in Rig Veda Creation Story with the current Cosmological findings.

Beginning of Time

Cosmology: There is no physics. Theory cannot account for conditions existing or not existing

Rig Veda: Neither existence nor nonexistence was there; Neither matter nor space was there;(1st two lines of 1st Verse)

10-32 seconds after Big Bang

Cosmology: The inflationary mode ends, having made the universe smooth and almost homogenous. Matter, anti-matter, and radiation are a bubbling opaque stew.

Rig Veda: And an uninterrupted continuum of fluid……(2nd line of 3rd Verse)

10-4 seconds after big bang

Cosmology: Universe expands. Matter and anti-matter annihilate each other. There is slightly more matter and this excess comprises the matter in the universe today forming galaxies.

Rig Veda: ….. Out came in material form and shape That One lying deep inside, on its own intent(Last 2 lines of 3rdVerse)

 

In the sixth verse, it says – who will know and who can declare when and where from it all started since we, the seekers were not there and also the causative forces were not present. They came later.

Even gravity broke away from the presumed unified force later. Veda makes it clear that so long you are in search of the causative forces only, you will not get the answer.

Oscillating Cosmos

There is a theory in the scientific world envisaging a cosmos that oscillates forever passing through infinite number of moments of creation in a never-ending cycle of birth, death and repetition. This has the advantage of being able to answer the question – What preceded the explosion?

Veda also says that this creation and its ending is a repetitive cycle.

End in darkness

Modern cosmology, on the basis of available evidence, envisages the end will come in darkness. Beginning follows the end.

Veda describes the beginning in the same way – darkness concealed in darkness was the state of things.

Herbert Reeves, the famous astrophysicist, after discussing about the primordial force of Big Bang and subsequent distinct forces like gravity, asks a relevant question: “Did not the universe, somewhere, aim at achieving self-awareness through the creation of human mind?” (His article in Figaro-Magazine of February 1983)

The answer is available in Rig Veda for all thinkers of all ages. The answer does not limit human beings only, but extends to all animate and inanimate worlds. The last verse is more profound in its meaning. That One, the “author” of all events should know the beginning. Veda says, “That One also may not know! That breathless One is breathing on its own. The beginning of universe, its expansion, demise and re-emergence – entire process is like involuntary inhaling and exhaling. If someone puts a question to any other one, when did you start that particular inhalation, the obvious answer will be – I do not know.

Even the “author” may not know…

It is a continuous process of which I hardly take notice of. The process is a continuum. Beginning and end are relevant to us, parts and parcels of universe. We float and sink in the ocean of time but not that continuous flow of events or its “author”.

So, according to Vedic Philosophy, the universe (or Multiverse) had no origin, but always has been and always will be, but is perpetually in flux. Space and time are of cyclical nature. This universe is simply the current one, which is in flux and constantly changing, when it finally ceases to manifest, a new one will arise. In a number of stories from the Puranas the continual creation and destruction of the universe is equated to the outwards and inwards breaths of the gigantic cosmic Maha Vishnu.

Hindu scriptures hold that Lord Vishnu, the protector and caretaker of all creation, sleeps in the middle of a vast ocean on the giant snake Sheshanaga. When the cycle begins, Lord Brahma is born out of the ‘Anda‘, an allusion to the egg which is the origin of all life. This ‘Anda’ comes from the navel of Lord Vishnu. The first sound of Lord Brahma is Om, the origin of all creation.

At first the ultimate truth “Brahman” was there, from whom came out Shiva without any birth or death. Vishnu is formed from the vaam-anga of Shiva or the left body. Shiva is the extreme male power of the universe. He is the destroyer or annihilator of the universe.

From him manifested the extreme female power of the universe, Sati.

Then the preserver of the universe Vishnu took three forms, Karnodakasayi Vishnu or Maha-VishnuGarbhodakasayivishnu, and Ksirodaksayi vishnu. Maha Vishnu has several Garbhodakasayivishnus in the spiritual sky (the ocean of Karana). Each Garbhodakasayivishnu exhales and inhales and with each breath a Brahma is born who lives for 100 Brahma years and dies with the breath of Garbhodakasayi Vishnu. Each Brahma creates a universe which comes to an end with partial annihilation.

After several Brahma years the annihilation of Garbhodakasayi Vishnu takes place and at the last stage, the dissolution of the whole Karan Sagar with Maha Vishnu by Shiva with Tandav; and this cycle begins again. This cycle of formation and annihilation is seen in Hinduism.

The puranic view asserts that the universe is created, destroyed, and re-created in an eternally repetitive series of cycles. In Hindu cosmology, a universe endures for about 4,320,000,000 years (a kalpa or one day of Brahma the creator) and is then destroyed by fire or water elements. At this point, Brahma rests for one night, just as long as the day. This process, named pralaya (Cataclysm), repeats for 100 Brahma years (311 Trillion, 40 Billion human years), which represents Brahma’s lifespan. Similarly at any given time there are an infinite number of Brahmas creating each of these universes, which are infinite in number.

Brahma is the creator but not necessarily regarded as God in Hinduism. He is mostly regarded as a creation of God or Brahman.

This ‘oscillation’ is portrayed in Hindu texts, especially in the Bhagwad Gita, as Shrishti followed by Vinaash. The period of Vinaash is one of extreme chaos where the very laws of Nature fail.

big bang

Rig Veda viewpoint of modern cosmology

This is similar to the Cyclical Universe Theory in physical cosmology. The Big Bang is described as the birth of the universe (Brahma), the life of the universe then follows (Vishnu), and the Big Crunch would be described as the destruction of the universe (Shiva).

An interesting parallel to these ideas can be found in the ekpyrotic model of the universe.

Some Hindu scholars draw metaphorical parallels between modern cosmology and the Hindu theory of ‘Srishti’. According to them, the ‘Anda’ itself resembles the hypothetical energy point from which the Big Bang and hence the Universe emerged. They also claim that the true intonation of Om is very long and drawn out, it is described as an all pervading sound. Its parallel is the cosmic background radiation, currently at a temperature level of 2.725 Kelvin, which pervades the Universe.

Some Hindus claim that even the string theory finds a place in their ancient texts. The first thing that ever was and will be is ‘Shabda’ or sound. This energy is produced by vibrations in energy produced by the powers of the Trinity (Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva). Although at a very high level, this resembles the multidimensional vibrations of the ‘Gunas’ or strings, which are said to be the basis of all creation.

The Rig Veda viewpoint of the continuous cycle of creation, destruction and rebirth is attuned to the theory of Big Bang – Expansion – Contraction – Big Crunch. If the Big Crunch happens, the movement of galaxies towards each other will produce very strong gravitational fields which may make relativistic effects perceptible at a great magnitude. The physical phenomena which we are used to may change wildly or be non-existent.

 Featured SAVY Yogi of the Month – Eugene Wong Won

My name is Eugene Wong Won.
I joined SAVY International back in June 2013.
 Before joining SAVY, I was having a lot of lower back pains and my flexibility especially in my legs was not very responsive.
My doctor prescribed pain killers.
 
I am not a spring chicken, but that was not acceptable. I decided to do something about the problem.
My wife who was then doing yoga at SAVY encouraged me to join the yoga classes. And this is how it started.
 
Over the past five months, I have been going to yoga classes on the average four days per week enduring the exercises and deep stretches for one hour a day under the professional guidance of Dr. Jitender Sahdev.
Today, five months later, I am happy to say my flexibility and mobility have improved, my back pains are hardly noticeable and I no longer take the prescribed pain pills.
Your body, like a car, always need ongoing maintenance. Yoga is part of that ongoing maintenance for your body.
Definitely, for me, yoga with Dr. Jit has been a positive experience. 

A note from the President’s desk

Dr Jitender K Sahdev

November, the month of the Remembrance Day, is here. November used to be the ninth month in Roman calendar, hence its name from novem means nine; but it became the eleventh month later when January and February were added. Month long observances are held for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, COPD Awareness month, National Novel Writing Month, National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, American Diabetes Month, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis Awareness Month, National Pomegranate Month in the United States, International Drum Month, National Stomach Cancer Awareness Month (United States), Epilepsy Awareness Month, No Shave November, Movember and many more events.

November starts on the same day of the week as February in common years and March every year. November ends on the same day of the week as August every year. November starts on the same day of the week as June of the previous year in common years and September and December of the previous year in leap years.

In this now very popular Featured SAVY Yogi of the Month series, we present SAVY Yogis who have been learning the right kind of yoga with correct techniques, have done wonderfully well for themselves and are a guiding light and a source of great inspiration for others.

In such an important month, it’s a matter of great pride for me to introduce a man of wonderful calibre as our next savvy SAVY Yogi – Eugene. He is a man with a golden heart! Not only is he a great friend and a very important member of SAVY family, but also a very helping, loving and caring person, sporty and smiling always. A man of some serious grit and determination, he keeps pushing the bar up. A lively person, he takes his yoga very seriously. Eugene and Liz, along with Marlene and Judy, are a joy to teach. His determination, regularity and progress in yoga classes has been exemplary.

Keep it up, Eugene!

A note from the President’s desk

Dr Jitender K Sahdev

October, the month of the Halloween, is here. We’ll also be celebrating International Day of Non-Violence and International World Teachers’ Day. In Canada, it is celebrated as Brain Tumor Awareness month too, and we at SAVY will be launching a program for brain tumor care this month. It marks the start of the season of autumn. It’s a very interesting month in the way that in non-leap years, January starts on the same day of the week as October, but no other month starts on the same day of the week as October in leap years. October ends on the same day of the week as February every year and January in non-leap years only. There is much more to this month, but I’ll leave that to you to explore. 😀
In this now very popular Featured SAVY Yogi of the Month series, we present SAVY Yogis who have been learning the right kind of yoga with correct techniques, have done wonderfully well for themselves and are a guiding light and a source of great inspiration for others.
With great pride and pleasure, I introduce another savvy SAVY Yogi – Debbie, this month. Debbie is a real Yogi at heart, as she believes in living in the moment and gives her best to the moment. A very loving and caring person herself, exuding positivity, she has a great attitude and a wonderful aptitude and is a joy to teach and has always been a source of great support and inspiration and a pillar of strength. Her regularly irregular presence in yoga classes, along with Mama Jane’s, 😀  is loaded with fun, focus and dedication. She doesn’t take long in picking up the instruction and her devotion and steadfastness is commendable. Her grit and determination for results is something I would love to ape ASAP.
Keep it up, Debbie!

Eric and Pauline Donald

FEATURED SAVY YOGI OF THE MONTH

My name is Pauline Donald and I started yoga with SAVY two years ago and attended 30 lessons.
Pauline Donald
After a few months break, I returned in January of this year.

I tried yoga years ago and really enjoyed it but that session was discontinued.  I tried yoga at several other places which eventually led me to SAVY.

Pauline Donald

 

   I was looking for a program that would give me enjoyment, a challenge, and relaxation.
Pauline Donald
  This yoga has gone beyond my expectations!  I have found enjoyment, on-going challenge, and relaxation during all sessions.
Pauline Donald
My favourites are the sun and moon salutation, breathing exercises and the Deep Stretch sessions on Fridays.  It is not easy but very satisfying for mind and body.
I have noticed improvement in stamina, strength especially in my arms, flexibility, concentration, and ability to relax.
Pauline Donald
I like SAVY because of the variety of movements and poses, the individual feedback to execute poses correctly, the challenge, and the warm, supportive encouragement.

 

Pauline Donald

Pauline Donald

I encourage anyone who is seeking to improve their body strength and flexibility and overall health benefits to join SAVY and discover for yourself.

 

A note from the President’s desk
Dr Jitender K Sahdev
September marks a feeling of a fresh start, turning over of a new leaf, and initiation of nesting. We continue our march into the third year with overwhelming response from savvy Londoners for their favorite Yoga Studio.
In this new series, we present SAVY Yogis who have been learning the right kind of yoga with correct techniques, have done wonderfully well for themselves and are a guiding light and a source of great inspiration for others.
With great pride and pleasure, I introduce another savvy SAVY YogiPauline Donald this month. Her zeal, zest and devotion to yoga is infectious, and the magic of her benign presence in SAVY Yoga classes is nothing less than awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, shoulder-slouching, mesmerizing and thoroughly ego-smothering experience for the rest of us. During yoga sessions, as she executes her yoga poses with complete focus, very often I catch somebody or the other looking her way with an amazed look, followed by a deep sigh, a head shake, and a semblance of an unsure resigned smile of meek submission. Her vigor and enthusiasm for greater perfection is amply bolstered by her skillful yet unattached, devoted regular practice, and her lively boy-friend, and husband, Eric. She, with her ever-present friend Mary, has come a long way in these last two years, and the ruthless, unrelenting dedication shows not even an iota of respite.
Pauline, you are amazing. Keep it up!

Sukshma Yoga

IMG_1156b

Sukshma Yoga-The Yoga for Everyone, or Subtle Yoga  is one of the most ancient and relatively little known form of Yoga. This is ‘The Yoga for Everyone’!

Sukshma Yoga can make you relax within a few minutes. Its effect penetrates subtle levels at the physical, mental and spiritual levels. This consists of gentle stretching and coordinated breathing, and breathing exercises, that result in deep relaxation. It includes easy exercises for the eyes, tongue and jaws, neck, hands, feet, knees, ankles and hips. In Sukshma Yoga the whole body, from head to toe, is treated, relaxed and rejuvenated. These exercises also stimulate, balance and energise the Marma points and Chakras. External and internal body parts undergo deep transformation in this type of Yoga. These are scientific exercises that not only make us strong and supple, but also help remove impurities from the body and improve the memory, concentration and will-power.

Sukshma Yoga routine includes more of those physical yogic movements which almost all of the people would be able to do. Hasta mudras or hand postures are also included. These classes are suitable even for those who have not done any form of yoga or exercise before and are afraid of trying yogic postures. The good thing about yoga is that there is something for everybody regardless of body weight, physical limitations/strength or flexibility. With the regular practice of those gentle movements you would be amazed to see how the yoga practice is helping you not only in making a difference in your lives but also helping in overcoming so many health issues. Regular practice of this type of Yoga ensures a long and healthy life.

People of every age, make, fitness level,belief, faith can do and receive the benefits of these exercises that can be very comfortably and safely practised. These exercises also make you ready for getting deeper into yoga and meditation in a very subtle way.

Our Beginners’ Level classes are based on Sukshma Yoga or Subtle Yoga.

You can learn Sukshma Yoga at SAVY under the most qualified and experienced faculty in London ON, and one of the most qualified and experienced faculty in North America!
