I have been participating in the Karma Yoga Spirit Matters book club for a couple of years. I only regret when I miss it! Susann and Shelley select such wonderful books to read and provide so much insight. They lead wonderful discussions that are always lively because of the wonderful people who show up, and the openness with which each person shares their thoughts, reactions and insights. For example, this month we read the Tao Te Ching. The discussion was so lively. While many read a common interpretation, several of us also read other interpretations. You can only imagine how lively and valuable the discussion was in compare and contrast. Like I said at the outset: never miss a month. Or if you do? Just read the book!
Anusara yoga is a school of hatha yoga that bases its teachings on a non-dual Tantric philosophy that an intrinsic energy of Oneness underlies everything and everyone. A key element in an Anusara class is the heart theme or virtue that is woven into the breath and asana practice. Universal Principles of Alignment™ (alignment instruction with a heart theme) is applied to each asana. Anusara yoga practice is uplifting and empowering!
