PRACTICE

ANUSARA YOGA: A HEART-ORIENTED PRACTICE

Anusara Yoga is a school of hatha (physical) yoga, founded by John Friend, which couples precise postural alignment with an uplifting philosophy of looking for the good in all things and all people, especially one’s self.

The poses in Anusara yoga are “heart-oriented,” meaning that they are expressed from the “inside out.” During practice, we express all of our experience — physical and emotional, challenging and joyful — in order to balance our hearts, minds and bodies.

Using Anusara’s Universal Principles of Alignment™ provides a powerful base from which to build a strong and progressive practice, improving overall health, well-being, strength, flexibility and posture. By applying these dynamic principles, students of all levels can expand upon their practice in a safe, fresh and new way.

Practitioners of Anusara Yoga develop a sharp mind, vibrant body and soft heart in considering Attitude, Alignment and Action during their practice. Attitude refers to the intention or reason we practice. Alignment involves aligning our bodies physically, but also aligning our hearts and minds. Action is actually doing the practice.

Tisha Bremner, our primary Anusara Yoga teacher at Jai says, “Anusara Yoga has touched and opened my heart in the deepest ways both on and off the mat. Every time I practice…a sweeter part of my spirit is revealed.”

With our various Anusara class offerings, students of all levels of ability and yoga experience are honored for their unique differences and talents. You will look and feel your best!

Jai Yoga offers Anusara Yoga classes on Wednesdays:

9:00 AM Anusara Inspired Flow – an alignment-based vinyasa class

10:30 AM Therapeutic Yoga – gentle yoga to heal misalignment in the body

12:00 PM Anusara Advancing – safe and fun exploration of advancing poses
