It’s delightful that Anusara yoga classes are so structured to feel like home. One of the best attributes of being an Anusara-inspired teacher is knowing that to even get to teacher status, the training is intense, one of those hurts-so-good kinda feelings. And the teachings are consistent. And the teachings flow along the order of Nature so nothing ever surprises you, except the intensity of the connections we all make through this method of Hatha yoga.
Take Chicago’s Moksha Yoga Studio. Before leaving Boston, I universally dropped into the Inbox of several Anusara teachers in Chicago, Moksha being one studio, Yogaview being the other. Every one of them dropped back into mine instantly. Rebecca Sykes went out of her way to fetch me to a Level III class with Sara Strothers. The amazing clarity, simplicity, and consistency in Sara’s cuing felt like I had walked into John Friend’s class. Or Deb Neubauer’s. Or Marc St. Pierre’s.
No matter where you go, there you are, held preciously in the hands of loving teachers who have passed all they know down to you. The message always being look for the intrinsic goodness and Shri (beauty) in your own heart, then live from that place every moment of every day. That philosophy makes living easier.
Tap, tap, tap…there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.
