About SRY - Supreme Release Yoga

Release and nourish your spine, mapping holding patterns of the body, mind, emotions, karma and ancestry. Layers resolve to reveal the wellness and truth of your being within. Through this practice you nurture, soften, rejuvenate and heal, and leave behind the viewpoint that you need to “fix” the body. 

This approach decompresses the spine for a  healing and transformational effect. The spine is both the anatomical foundation of the body and the conduit of the nourishing nectar {soma} and transformative feminine fire {kuṇḍalinī śakti}. SRY also offers a direct, embodied experience of timeless yogic scripture and oral tradition, and Kaya threads contemplative teachings together with the direct experience of āsana of pranayama.

If you’ve been afraid of or become disenchanted with ‘yogaland’ superficialities or the “stretch” vs “strength” binary you’ve found a home in SRY. No yoga mats, No Mirrors, No performance, No workout, No aesthetic or athletic achievement. This is truly about inner unfoldment, bliss, healing, transformation and Self love.

Supreme Release Yoga is both accessible and advanced,  both gentle and deep.  The only way to understand it, is to experience it!

Therapeutic Themes

A skilled therapeutic teacher and storyteller, Kaya makes each month a journey. She combines contemplative yogic teaching with a practical body-based experience in a way that allows students to progressively and directly embody transformative teachings while undergoing true healing.

Practice Live or by Video

Join Kaya's live offerings if you can, but the true treasure of your membership is the ongoing access to the library of themes and classes, mini practices, pose spotlights and contemplations. You can choose to follow along with each weeks primary practice, or go back to your favorites again and again.

Options to fit your Life

The primary practice of each week is about an hour. But Kaya has filled the library with additional practices of varying lengths. Do a 20-40 minute daily practice, click a 5-15 minute pose spotlight to target one thing, delve into a delicious guided yoga nidra, or use the contemplative teachings to guide your meditation.

$270 USD for a Full Year, or $30 USD / Month

I have to tell you how much I am enjoying the classes. I've practiced everyday since joining. I'm continually surprised by how much subtle release I'm getting, around the sacrum and tailbone. I'm finally nourishing myself with asana again and have deeper guidance now with you. You are an inspiring teacher. Thank you truly! I feel more open and less stuck, tender and juicy in a great way.

Ayurveda & Sound Teacher
Wow. Kaya thank you so much for this practice. As someone with hyper-mobility and clunky SI joints I have avoided certain things for years because of discomfort or pain. No discomfort in this practice and after the first 45 minute class I can see and feel a profound difference in my posture. Seriously I've been walking around the house saying 'wow' out loud for the last 20 minutes!
Amanda
Yoga Student, Mother
This week's practice was absolutely delightful and dare I say, truly blissful. The sequence was grounding, calming, safe and revitalizing and I had an emotional release during one pose. I feel I'm giving myself the care and comfort I've been craving. The SRY practice has been so healing and beneficial, and you're one of the few teachers I find it easy to feel connected to in the online format. Thank you!

April Theme: Standing Flow & Independent Bliss

Delve into the simple practice of learning how to stand, move and gently flow with an open and softened spine! 
 
Each practice in this 4 week series will begin with preparing the body, mind and heart with deep release and nourishment of the whole spine. Then we will lengthen the psoas, stand up and embark on a simple flow of standing poses coordinated with easeful breathing. 
 
Along the way we will contemplate the teaching of Sarasvati – what it is to flow like a river and what it is to be supremely happy with one’s own self!
 
The result will be a decompressed spine, sense of true inner strength that is not created with tension but discovered through release, and heart-centered awareness of the bliss of the Self. All of this will allow you to integrate a yogic demeanor into all of life!

FAQ:

Each weekly practice is about 60-75 minutes. Kaya also adds a bonus shorter practice each month. 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 deigned to fit your full yogic life. Many students enjoy doing the hour+ practices 1-2 times a week, and sustaining with a 30 minute practice on other days. 

No problem! Live attendance is a treat, and many members organize their schedules to make this possible. But the real gem of the SRY Studio is the anytime-access to the full library of content to practice regardless of your time zone or schedule! The live class times will vary month-to-month to make access possible for the diverse community. 

Many students of SRY have some form of pain – whether due to an injury, overuse, phase of life, constitution or otherwise. Most find that this practice is not only profoundly soothing and accessible but directly healing and 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. Kaya always references propping and alignment alternatives, as well as pose alternatives. If you truly need support, it is best to have one {or more} private sessions with Kaya {online} to assess what will and will not work for your body. You can leave those sessions equipped with your personalized alternatives or propping to make the studio practices work for you!

Absolutely! Dig a well! Kaya plans the SRY Studio themes in accord with her Online Program schedule so that they are a perfect opportunity for students to directly experience and embody the teachings she offers in programs like the Nectar of the Gita or the Nectar of Nidra. Students who are in those programs and the SRY Studio get a truly deep and full experience. 

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 finally found a practice that actually directly EMBODIES the philosophical teachings of Patanjali Yoga Sūtras, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gītā, and Tantric Texts such as the Shiva Samhitā,  

So… if you are interested in the particular month-theme & plan to attend LIVE then 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. 
February theme is: Standing Softly & Inner Light
{this means it is still primarily deep relaxation released-based nourishing practice, but then we take those principles into a standing position to see if we can sustain the inner orientation and softness while standing up}
 
But… if you are interested in practicing on your own with the recordings {this is what MOST members do}, then you can pick any theme inside the SRY Studio and practice at your own pace, moving through one or even several themes or jumping around. 

The list of themes inside the SRY Studio is on this page above!
