At The Yoga Boutique we practise Anusara yoga in all our classes. Anusara yoga is a modern school of hatha yoga started by John Friend in 1997. The style is derived from from the Iyengar Yoga style of Hatha Yoga, but re-introduces elements of Hindu spirituality, specifically derived from Siddha Yoga.
The emphasis of Anusara Yoga is on a set of “Universal Principles of Alignment” which underlie all, “heart opening”, postures.
The term “Anusara (a-nu-sar-a), means ‘flowing with Grace,’ ‘flowing with Nature,’ ‘following your heart.’” This is an interpretation of the Sanskrit anusāra, a term meaning “custom, usage, natural state or condition”.
