Each class of Anusara yoga opens with a set ritual comprised of chants and recitals of Anusara invocations in Sanskrit. Each class tends to be very planned to flow harmoniously from one stage to another. Over 250 poses make up the full syllabus of Anusara yoga. Poses include backbends, forward bends, inversions, hand balancing, standing poses and more. The ultimate goal of each class is for students to leave with a deep sense of upliftment and fulfilment in terms of having a greater understanding of their divine nature.
The philosophy of Anusara yoga is based on the foundational principle that all people are inherently good, no matter their current struggles or faults. Anusara yoga is designed for every level of yoga student from beginners to advanced yoga practitioners.
Ansura yoga has multiple benefits for both the body and the mind. The art of Anusara is designed to be a spiritual experience that is accessed through manipulation of the body and through meditation. One’s body becomes stronger, muscle tone improves, and flexibility increases. Anusara yoga also relieves underlying injuries or areas of tension in the body. Mentally, Anusara yoga aims to restore a sense of connection between body and mind and to ease stress and anxiety through methodical, flowing movements and peaceful meditation on the moment at hand.
