WHAT IS AN IMMERSION?

The Anusara® yoga Inmersion is an invitation to an in-depth experience of this yoga system. It is a journey to the essence that pulsates in your heart through the study of the life-affirming philosophy underlining the Anusara method, the practice of the Universal Principles of Alignment™, and the power of the kula, the community of like hearted yogis. The Immersion is an opportunity to penetrate and to expand in your yoga studies on every level (Asana, Philosophy, Pranayama, Meditation) with no pressure placed on teaching or instructions on how to teach. Sharing this experience with like-minded yogis you will built strong connections to create a supportive community of the heart.
