In our September 2014 issue, we highlighted some local yoga studios.
CHALFONT YOGA AND MEDITATION CENTER
15 W Butler Ave, Chalfont
Yoga teacher Pooja Erica Andersen seeks to provide relief from pain and stress with Svaroopa Vidya Healing Yoga at Chalfont Yoga and Meditation Center. Andersen opened the studio in Chalfont this year with a desire to share what she had learned over the years with others. “A friend of mine invited me to a Svaroopa yoga class, which changed the course of my entire life. The poses we practiced were supportive and targeted at releasing tension along the spine,” she tells of her first experience with the unique type of yoga.
Now Andersen is bringing the healing, tension-relieving Svaroopa to others through hands-on guidance. Her studio offers small classes for individualized attention, yoga-based pain reduction therapy, and yoga philosophy discussion groups. In addition, she leads weekend half-day yoga workshops. She recommends Svaroopa to “people who want to reduce pain and stress” as well as “those with an interest in improving their life by learning yoga and meditation practices and incorporating the practices into their daily lives”.
