Anusara Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Anusara Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Anusara Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Anusara is a modern school of hatha yoga and is fixed in a Tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness. John Friend started Anusara in 1997, and began to expand his school by training and certifying yoga teachers. Anusara yoga’s main focus is on a series of “Universal Principles of Alignment.” Which can be divided into 3 categories: Attitude, alignment, and action which help guide the yoga practitioner through various stages of movement, breath, and alignment.

Bermuda Yoga Festival is an intimate 4-day yoga and music festival that brings together a community drawn to follow the path of spirit and the heart. The festival offers traditional and emerging yoga styles, wisdom teachings, transformational workshops, kirtan and live conscious music. Journey out of winter to the subtropical warmth of Bermuda's springtime and immerse yourself in master classes, sunrise meditation, sacred chanting in a magical crystal cave, ecstatic dance, soulful mantra grooves, and the creative possibilities of kirtan and live conscious music.

Calley Bliss (Yoga Alliance RYT-200) teaches yoga with the approach that the science of the mind is intrinsically connected to the state of the body. Learning, and re-patterning that state is often an emotional journey by way of a physical practice. The practice is always a practical tool to combat life’s challenges, and find opportunity for growth, health, and progress for your body, mind, and life.
