October Theme: Softening the Heart

Learn to truly release the granthi [knot] behind and within your heart and reveal the sacred presence abiding there. 

We will pair the practices with contemplation of the feminine divine. 

Rather than big backbends that cause over-arching of the neck and waist, we’ll delve into subtle, therapeutic, nuanced SRY movements that protect your waist and neck and target, nurture, soften the heart directly.

About SRY - Supreme Release Yoga

With Supreme Release Yoga, you leave behind the limiting yogaland binary of stretch vs strength, and discover the healing and transformative power of release. In SRY we work with the spine, emphasizing the pelvis and heart in particular to map the holding patterns of the body, mind, emotions, karma and ancestral layers to resolve patterns that cover up well being and awakening. Through this practice you nurture, soften, rejuvenate and heal.

This yoga therapy approach ~ which many of Kaya’s students call “Spinal Release Yoga” ~ decompresses the spine. 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 become disenchanted with ‘yogaland’, 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.

The approach is gentle but deep, accessible but advanced. 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!
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!

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,
