New to Yoga?
At Tranquility Yoga, we want your first experience to be one that will keep you coming back for more, as you begin to see all the benefits that Yoga has to offer including:
- Greater flexiblity in your spine and your whole body (you don't have to be flexible to begin Yoga)
- Less aches and pains
- Stress reduction
- A quieter mind
Yoga promises all this and more! However, there are many different styles of Yoga, and different people are drawn to different types of classes. We have developed a short questionnaire that you can submit which will allow us to better serve you as a new student. Once you have submitted this, someone from the studio will contact you and answer any questions you may have.

From Supervisor to (I hope trusted) Advisor
For the past 21 years, I have been in a long-term job with the title "Mom". Although the job description has changed over the years in many ways, that job has remained constant. Now, however, that job description has been completely rewritten. I have gone from being the decision-maker to being a consultant at best, and I no longer have the day to day responsibilities that I used to have. And without those responsibilities, how do I define myself? I am still a mom, yet what does that mean? What's my role? What is my identity now? And just when I think that I have no more "Mom" responsibilities, I will get a message from one of my kids saying that they need help in one way or another. I am pulled back in briefly, only to be pushed away again as soon as they figure things out for themselves.I have been grappling with these questions for the past several months, and have felt like I am on very shaky ground.
Luckily, I have a business to run, and it is one which has provided me with another identity over the years as a Yoga teacher. This past weekend, I attended a weekend Svaroopa® Yoga workshop led by a colleague of mine, Addie Alex, in Holliston Mass. The workshop was called "Find the Unshakeable You" and as soon as I saw the title, I knew that I needed to be there. For me, the weekend clarified a lot of what I already knew as a Yoga teacher, but had been having trouble integrating into my life. What I realized was that my different jobs (being a Mom, or being a Yoga teacher), do not define me. The jobs are identities that may come and go, but underneath that is an unshakeable core that never really changes. During the weekend, I connected with that core in a very powerful way, and it has shifted how I view my life now. I am so grateful for my Yoga practice, which has enabled me to know that my true Self never changes, even though my job description has undergone a massive overhaul.
Students come to Yoga classes for a variety of reasons – usually because they have physical aches and pains, or they are feeling stressed and think Yoga will help them relax. Yoga does help with this, but what students often discover is that practicing Yoga brings them so much more. It is that connection with their true identity that keeps people coming back again and again. That is where the true power of Yoga lies.

BTW, I really love the classes! It's promoting so much peace and awareness. I actually experience stillness like I have never before. It's the best gift really. SR
I am very grateful for the space you have created and the wonderful blessings of Svaroopa Yoga!
...meant to tell you that the individual attention you gave on Friday was very helpful. I am often not sure how the poses are supposed to feel, and if a particular tension is a sign of stretching or moving in a good way, or a sign of being out of alignment, etc. A lot is still unknown. So the checking is helpful – also the neck alignment you did was very good.
Thank you! Svaroopa Yoga is such a beautiful part of my life. Little did I ever dream accepting your 'openhouse' invitation 5 years ago would give me such appreciation of flexibility and grace of the body. If I should have pain I know how to release it! I am ever so thankful our paths crossed! G.N.
I got a lot of the class. During the final Shavasana, I explored the edge between conscious and unconsciousness. I felt like I was exploring. But exploring what? I finally settled on time. I was drifting back and forth through time! Feeling the timelessness of my Self. Pretty Amazing stuff, this yoga!
I adored your yoga studio and the class that I took last Thursday morning. I hope to attend again and become a regular student; it seemed incredibly restorative and relaxing which is what I was looking for in a yoga class! Thank you for adding me to your email list and I hope to be back to Tranquility Yoga this week. Happy holidays, K.V.
I am excited to be doing yoga! I am amazed at how good I felt after just one class..... Looking forward to the next class. B.O.
I really enjoyed Monday's class. It was very relaxing - which is something that I needed. I am hoping to get more lasting benefits as the weeks go on. One very positive note, I injured my shoulder on Saturday at the gym and was having trouble gripping with my right hand. After the Yoga class, it was no longer bothering me. I think I must have had a pinched nerve that went away with that first pose :)
I just had to write to tell you how wonderful last week's class was! They are all always great, but for me, this one was exceptional... At the end of class, I felt as if someone (you) had lifted the bricks from my shoulders! Then, as I backed my car out of the parking lot, my
neck moved farther to the right and left than it has in a very long time. Even better, the residual relief lasted well into the week! Thanks so much, Gail
Just wanted to let you know that the beginner's yoga class was excellent last night. Because I have a bad back and am usually running from one task to the next, I don't ever feel like sitting for longer than a minute. After we did our stretching last night we sat for a bit and I've never been so relaxed and comfortable just sitting.

"Attending yoga classes at Tranquility is helping my body to heal from so much trauma - and I am so-o incredibly grateful to have found it. I am especially grateful for the Karma Fund and to all of you who have generously contributed to it - without the assistance of the fund, I would not be able to attend regularly. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I trust that the day will come when I can give back what I have been so generously given!!"
How did it go? Well, let's see what words I've been using when describing my experience to family and friends: Wonderful, Amazing, Great, You must try it, Relaxing, Incredible, and Just what I needed. DH
Thought I would check in to say that my neck and shoulder feel SO much better. If there is a shadow of anything left I believe that it is my mind telling me to be careful. Thank you so much for your time after class – I really appreciate your thoughts and your marvelous adjustment. SP
I slept last night! First time in ages! I loved my first class! MB
I have seen a remarkable change in me since last year. I did a lot of shovelling several days ago. I actually like shovelling but generally have some backache the next day. This week for the first time I had no backache at all even after working with some pretty wet and heavy snow. Thank you Tranquility Yoga. DC
