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.

We are proud to share with any of you considering our training that Body Language has been voted best Yoga studio 9 years in a row in the metro Detroit area. Our students have voiced that their votes have been in large part due to the warm, friendly environment as well as the caliber of teachers who guide them through their practices and offer them individual attention and support. In fact our teacher training program includes many of our staff who are experts in a variety of fields including a physical therapist who offers our anatomy segments, a Ph.D in psychology who offers several segments on using yoga as a tool to deal with anxiety and depression and a Registered Dietitian who helps students understand the link between nutrition, weight management and yoga. Lastly our training is divided into two 100 hour segments...1/2 in the fall and 1/2 in the spring...allowing students more time to absorb the information. Would love to have you join our training!

Wisdom Flow Yoga
Life is Love in Action

Our teacher training rests on a clear vision of the Wisdom Flow Yoga philosophy: Life is love in action. When we deepen our alignment with the body's natural wisdom, love flows more effectively through us, enhancing well being, creativity, and joy. From this core philosophy, we unfold the methodologies of asana, pranayama, meditation, and more.

And no place can one experience more intensely the power of love in action than on the beautiful island of Maui, where the Aloha spirit shares its blessings with all who ask.
