Anusara Yoga

Anusara combines a strong emphasis on physical alignment with a positive philosophy derived from Tantra Yoga. The philosophy’s premise is “belief in the intrinsic goodness of all beings”. The poses are taught in a way that encourages the heart to open, both physically and mentally. Classes are light-hearted and accessible to students of differing abilities.

The interpretation/translation of the Sanskrit term “anusara” is “flowing with Grace, flowing with Nature, following your heart”. Anusara Yoga was founded in 1997 by John Friend.
