Anusara® Yoga:

Anusara yoga is a life-affirming, alignment based method of Hatha yoga. It’s a method that seeks to celebrate the vibrancy of life that pulsates in all of nature and in each of our hearts. The philosophy of the Anusara yoga teachings is rooted in the philosophy of non-dual Tantric philosophies of India. The inclusive nature of these teachings makes it accessible to those from most religious and cultural backgrounds. Ultimately the goal of the practice is about refining our awareness of the more subtle aspects of life, nature and our own potential and to enjoy those discoveries, by saying YES to life and the multitude of ways that life can be experienced.

The Anusara yoga class is anchored by a specific theme, presented at the opening of the class. The theme highlights the spiritual intention of physical practice. A sequence of yoga asanas (poses) are explored using scientifically based principles called Universal Principles of Alignment™. Unlike exercise programs which use movement as a means to some physical end, the Anusara yoga practice uses movement and alignment techniques to biologically and spiritually align with one’s true nature, and as a way of integrating (or putting into action) one’s highest intention for one’s life. 

The alignment principles weaved together with reminders of the class theme/intention serve as gateways to learning about the deeper sides of ourselves. In doing so students progressively learn not only how to align their posture, but also to align with the heart. The result – improved physical posture, optimal psycho/spiritual well-being in your everyday life and an overall joie de vivre as other impediments and obstacles, to the full expression of who we are, dissolve. 

Somatic Yoga:

Somatic Yoga is a practice that combines gentle movement, yoga postures, breathing and meditation to develop awareness of the sensory-motor body. This practice promotes interoception. Interoception is the awareness of sensation and movement from within the body. When we explore the nature of the body from within, we deepen our understanding of unconscious physical and emotional patterns that may reside in our tissues and energy body. In addition, this practice has the benefit of calming the nervous system, improving tissue mobility, joint stability and overall well-being. Somatic practices require us to fully accept the biological beings that we are, but they also reward us by revealing how deeply connected and supported we are by nature.
