Anusara Yoga

Anusara (a-nu-sar-a) means “flowing with Grace,” “flowing with Nature,” “following your heart.”

Founded by John Friend in 1997, Anusara yoga is a school of hatha yoga, which unifies a life-affirming Shiva-Shakti Tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness with Universal Principles of Alignment. Anusara yoga has become one of the most highly respected schools of hatha yoga with over 1,000 licensed yoga teachers, thousands of teachers in training, and hundreds of thousands of students worldwide. Anusara yoga has a presence on every continent throughout the world, excluding Antarctica, and is in 70 countries, thus attracting media attention worldwide.

Anusara yoga’s growth is due in large part to its uplifting philosophy, epitomized by a “celebration of the heart” that looks for the good in all people and all things. Consequently, students of all levels of ability and yoga experience are honored for their unique differences, limitations, and talents. This celebratory vision sets the basis for a yoga school in which the harmony and joy of a tightly knit community of highly trained teachers and fun-loving students is exalted. This community feels like it has the tightness of a family, yet the looseness of a merry band of bohemian artists.

Embodying Shakti

Jeanie Manchester

This class covers all parts of the body, an everyday aligned flow that taps you into Shakti Kundalini. When we begin to have a relationship with the energy in us, we start to heal and purify feelings of unworthiness, inhibition, doubt and fear. We wake up to the vibrancy of joy, freedom and creativity. This class would be awesome before a meditation practice or even a few minutes of silence at the end. Enjoy!

Bad Ass Drop Backs

Jeanie Manchester

This is a no nonsense, "let's get to it" backbend technique workshop that assumes you already have a strong practice and want to get down to it in an hour. We go straight at the backbends with a strong warm up, good flow and then a pause as we take time to open the shoulders at the wall in handstands and Pinchya Myurasana ( forearm balance) We work our quads open and then into a deep twist before diving into Ustrasana (Camel Pose) to full bow pose (Urdhva Dhanurasana), and then learning to come up and drop back at the wall. A strong, focused class which will stimulate the nervous system and bring more joy and freedom to your hip flexors, and a nice cool down and Savasana to leave you calm and peaceful. Enjoy!

Sita, Rama & Hanuman: Unconditional Love

Jeanie Manchester

This class id dedicated to the trio Sita, Rama and Hanuman. The Great epic tale of the Ramayana is briefly described here. Sita, the goddess of unconditional love teaches us about compassion under any situation. This class moves us slowly and steadily to the great splits, Hanumanasana. The great leap across the ocean where masculine and feminine, in-breath and out-breath unite. This class focuses on breath and some hamstring alignment. We start with some flow and standing postures, and then move more slowly to the ground. It's a great class for those who want to move towards the splits, but need to move more slowly to get there.

Tailbone Tutorial

Jeanie Manchester

This tutorial could quite possibly change your yoga practice!

Chakra Awareness Flow

April Laliberte

You are energy--you are a vibrational being.

Increase your awareness of your seven main energy centers (Chakras) and connect to them through a series of poses that stimulate these centers. We'll start with an active set of poses to warm up with. Then, we'll continue our journey through the seven chakras with less active poses that will gradually cool us back down. Our exploration will culminate in savasana with a guided meditation through each of the chakras. You will feel a wonderful balance of energy throughout your entire body after this class!

Let's Go Upside Down

Jeanie Manchester

Are you frustrated that you never get to inversions in your yoga class? Inversions are some of the most healthy postures we can do for ourselves and yet they are the most commonly neglected. In this 30 minute session you will flow to open the shoulders and then experience every basic inversion pose which will stimulate prana, energy for your day, and also calm you for a good night's rest. Inversions increase blood supply to the neck region to nourish and stimulate the thyroid and pineal glands. Give your feet a break and go upside down! This class is made accessible to most as it offers alternate options and basic alignment tips.

50 min Juicy Hip Opener

Jeanie Manchester

The hip joints are designed for motion, but for many of us the hips feel more like mud than water. This class gets right down into the deep hip muscles to release tension and tightness creating a newfound freedom. Opening the hips in such a way will also work to free the low back and get rid of emotional gunk that tends to get stored in this region (it really works, try it!).

Pursuing the Sick and Twisted

Madhuri

Discovering the best of who we are!

The love of life is not a function of the strength of the heart muscle, but depends on our willingness to reside in pure atman, invite deep intelligence and live in authentic expression. This backbend class challenges us to push the edges or our perceived limitations, and in so doing, short-curcuit our habitual ways of being. To open the locked door of our backbends, to open the locked door of our heart ~ ~ all it takes is the proper key. Then life becomes artistry.

This is a workshop-style class. Run time is 2:15:00

Align and Flow

Jeanie Manchester

Through this class you will work toward one of the most difficult, yet rewarding, poses yoga has to offer - Eka Pada Rajakapotasana, or One-Legged King Pigeon Pose. Jeanie uses her unparalleled experience and expertise to guide you, and prepare the body for this intense and uplifting posture by leading you through poses to open the quads, hamstrings, hips, chest, and shoulders. Even if you are far from reaching the full expression of Eka Pada Rajakopotasana, you will find yourself coming closer than you ever thought possible through this class. This is a fun, yet challenging, flow that encourages you to first find your alignment in each pose, then tap into the pulsation that runs throughout your body, outside into nature, and through the universe, so you can align and flow.

Riding the Waves

Jeanie Manchester

Every single one of us have had times in our lives where we've dealt with the highs and lows of being human, and the wide range of emotions that come along with it: grief, pain, joy, ecstasy. This class is called Riding the Waves and offers a practice designed to help you find the strength and serenity for life's peaks and valleys. Jeanie discusses the concept of holding on to the bigger picture through difficult times, even the loss of a loved one, and understanding the pulsation of life through our yoga practice. We must all learn to "ride the wave" inside - the one that was never born and will never die, and hold on to that perspective during challenging times.

The class incorporates arm balances designed to help you cultivate strength and courage, but reminds you to maintain a softness and let go of unnecessary tension and our tendency to grip onto concepts. As Jeanie puts it, embrace life and fully dance, but then when it's time, let go into a sweet surrender.

With this class you are invited into an intimate setting to experience a powerful class from a genuine and amazing soul. Enjoy. : )
