Anusara® (a-nu-sar-a), means ‘flowing with Grace,’ or ‘following your heart’. Founded by John Friend in 1997, Anusara yoga is a school of hatha yoga, which unifies a life-affirming Tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness with Universal Principles of Alignment®.
Anusara yoga’s popularity is due in large part to its uplifting philosophy, epitomized by a “celebration of the heart” that looks for the good in all people and all things. Consequently, students of all levels of ability and yoga experience are honored for their unique differences, limitations, and talents. This celebratory vision sets the basis for a yoga school in which the harmony and joy of a tightly knit community of highly trained teachers and fun-loving students is exalted. This workshop will be an introduction to Anusara-Inspired™ yoga.
The workshop will introduce: – the Three Pillars of Anusara Yoga (Attitude, Alignment, Action) – the 5 Universal Principles of Alignment® (Set the Foundation & Open to Grace, Muscular Energy, Inner Spiral, Outer Spiral, Organic Energy) – the Concept of Intrinsic Goodness – what it means to be part of a Heart-Oriented Community.
This workshop is intended for all levels. It will consits of a mixture of lecture, demonstration and practice, which will include a wide spectrum of poses. Learn to align your body mindfully and safely, so you may take your practice to a deeper level, experiencing more of your divine nature.
