About Yoga With Bhavani
For years, Jennifer “Bhavani” Sebastian used her calming voice and lighthearted humor during stressful work at an emergency communications center. Despite helping others in crisis, she struggled find peace in her own life. Upon meeting Rama Berch, creator of the Svaroopa method of yoga, she discovered what was missing: a sense of self-acceptance. Yoga became an agent of change as she learned to teach relaxing, Hatha-inspired poses and lead pain-melting yoga-therapy sessions. During her signature Svaroopa classes, props such as blankets, blocks, and chairs help bodies achieve optimal alignment during sitting, standing, and inverted poses. Jennifer circulates the room, showing students how to adapt the poses to different levels of strength, flexibility, and Rubik’s cube mastery. Bolstered by deep breaths and hands-on alignments, the exercises gently release tension from the sinews attached to the spine. As muscles unclench, bodies may gain mobility and shed chronic discomfort.
