Anusara Yoga: Anusara means “to be in the flow” “flowing with Grace” “the soul in the flow of Universe” “following your heart”
It is a compelling hatha yoga system unifying a life-affirming Tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness with remarkably elegant Universal Principles of Alignment.
Its uplifting philosophy looks for the good in all people and all things. Heart oriented, spiritually inspiring and grounded in sophisticated alignment principles.
The poses in Anusara Yoga are considered to be heart- oriented and are expressed from “inside out”. Instead of only trying to control the body and mind from the outside, the poses originate from a deep artistic feeling inside.
There is an emphasis on remembering the spiritual purpose of hatha yoga, which includes reconnecting with our innate goodness, power and beauty and expressing ourselves from that divine place. When we perform the foundational principles of Anusara, as fully as we can in an asana, we are epitomizing our full physical and spiritual potential for the performance of that asana and our spirit pours joygully through the body with total freedom.
