Anusara Yoga

<< return to a to z of yoga

Anusara Yoga is a unique combination of spiritual philosophy and detailed principles of body alignment. You'll find a strong emphasis on proper alignment in yoga poses, combined with unabashed heart-based teachings. 

Good to Know

It's common to hear instructions like 'melt your heart', 'inner body bright' and 'open to grace' in class.

Each class begins and ends with a short chant in sanskrit.

Who's it for?

Great for new yogis, as you'll get lots of detailed instruction and it's less intense than some of the more dynamic classes.


Anusara Yoga was founded in 1997 by American yogi, John Friend.
