Anusara Yoga

Well my work schedule is still awful and I still can't get to the Iyengar Yoga class I wanted to but I found this class "Anusara Yoga" and it actually fits my schedule but other than it being a style of hatha yoga I know nothing about it.

Does anyone train this or has anyone trained this or does anyone have any information on Anusara Yoga?

I took about 20 classses from an instructor in central florida. The instructor was excellent with the posture and helped me learn how to take my first deep breath. The focus of the classes seem to be about posture, relaxing in the breath, opening to grace, and corpse pose. With that instructor we did not do specific breathing practice nor did we meditate, but I did have times of great relaxation

It never hurts to give it a try

enjoy

Hi Walter,

The teacher I try and practice with most is Anusara trained, and althought I've been making efforts to establish a home practice, I would not hesitate to recommend this "style" of yoga to anyone. It is available to all , with all different body types and yoga experience. It is a light hearted style of teaching that makes going to a class fun. Our class is a vinyasa style in that it flows from one posture to the next with each breath but the basic principles of Anusara are adhered to. FYI John Friend the founder of Anusara studied alot with BKY Iyengar.

I think it's a great style from what I've heard about it. Lots of heart openers and inversions...always fun!

Let us know if you enjoyed the class...I've only heard positive things about Anusara.

Lots of inversions..... I do not think I am ready for inversions and to be honest I am not sure I want to do inversions. The last time I was upside-down is not a good memory.
