Anusara means “flowing with grace”, “flowing with nature”, and “following your heart”. It is a health-oriented Western approach to yoga that became very popular over the last decade. Anusara was developed based on hatha and iyengar hatha yoga by American-born yoga teacher John Friend in 1997. Founded on the “Three As” of attitude, alignment, and action, Anusara yoga draws from classical texts while applying its philosophy to the more physical aspects of asana (position) practice.
The poses in Anusara yoga are considered to be “heart-oriented”, meaning that they are expressed from the “inside out.”
Anusara lessons are often lighthearted, positive, and fun – the yoga mat considered more a playground rather than your daily duty, as anusara is based on the Tantric philosophy. Anusara yoga is a celebration of life, the art of understanding and knowing our tendencies. The goal, as proclaimed by its founder, is to appeal to those who want to work both on their physical and spiritual well-being. A key aspect is therefore the idea to bring the lessons learned in yoga class into your daily life, understanding and knowing our tendencies.
