FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IF I CAN'T ATTEND LIVE BECAUSE OF MY TIME ZONE OR SCHEDULE?
  • Attending live is ideal, but due to time zones, travel, work schedules, etc. it’s not always possible. 
  • Therefore: You can attend live or watch the recordings on your own schedule {or both}.
  • It is okay if you have to arrive late or leave early from the live classes.
  • Recordings arrive in the online course pages within 24 hours.
What do I need to attend the live classes? and What about the recordings?
  • Joining live is simple!

  • All classes are held on Zoom. You join with one click from a mobile device or a computer.

  • You’ll need an internet connection to join live or watch/listen later.

  • You’ll receive emails & reminders to join the zoom classroom and access the recording.  A few hours before each class you’ll receive a “Click to Join” email.

  • You can also click to join from right inside the program site.

  • All recordings {usually} will be found within 24 hours on the program site in your member area. You’ll receive a link to the recording via email.

Is there A required reading or preparation?
  • In keeping with the Vedic tradition of teaching, there is little to no required preparation or reading.

  • I follow my teachers’ approach in unfolding the teachings in real time in relationship with students.

  • As the course unfolds we add enriching articles, yoga practices, videos to support your learning.

  • Come to the lessons with an empty cup!

Will there be opportunities to ask questions?
  • Yes! A lecture followed by time for Q&A.

  • There is also a way to type Qs into the course content and I will respond to them on the page, or in the next live classes.

How long is each lecture / class?
  • Online Programs: Each lecture is about 90 minutes of lecture {unless stated otherwise on the program site} followed by Q&A. Plan 2 hours total.

  • SRY Studio: Each weekly SRY Studio practice is about 60-75 minutes. Inside the member area you can find mini practices of 5-15 minute, medium practices of 20-40 minutes, and fuller practices of up to an hour or more. The SRY Studio is designed to fit your full yogic life!

I HAVE SOME PAIN & HAVE HAD A HARD TIME WITH MANY YOGA FORMS, CAN I DO SRY?
  • Many students of SRY have some form of pain – due to an injury, overuse, phase of life, constitution, etc.

  • Most find that this practice is not only profoundly soothing and accessible but directly healing & resolving to pain!

  • You can become pain-free.

  • Still, it is impossible for even the most gentle accessible pose to work for everyone all the time.

  • I always references propping and alignment alternatives, as well as pose alternatives.

WHEN Is a good time to join SRY Studio? Also, I'M IN ANOTHER ONLINE PROGRAM WITH YOU, DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO DO THIS TO?
  • If you are interested in the month-theme and plan to attend LIVE it is best to join at the beginning of a month to track along so that you can get all four weeks of the series. Otherwise: Join anytime!

  • I absolutely recommend students who are in other programs (like the Nectar of the Gita or the Nectar of Nidra) to join SRY Studio to get a truly deep and full experience as the SRY Studio themes are planned in accord with the online program schedule. This is the perfect opportunity for students to directly experience and embody the teachings offered in the courses!
I'VE BECOME DISENCHANTED WITH MODERN YOGALAND!
  • Welcome home!

  • You’ll find here, not only a physical practice that is completely outside the stretch-strengthen binary of yogaland, but also outside the “yoga therapy as physical therapy in Indian clothing” problem of modern Yoga Therapy.

  • Furthermore, you’ve found a practice that directly EMBODIES the philosophical teachings of Patanjali Yoga Sutras, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, and Tantric Texts such as the Shiva Samhita.
