|ANUSARA YOGA Flowing with grace
With Desiree Rumbaugh
Anusara means "stepping into the Divine Flow of Grace". By aligning our bodies with nature and looking for balance of effort and surrender in each pose, we consciously and steadily train our hearts and minds. Desiree will introduce the three "A's" of Anusara Yoga: Attitude, Alignment and Action and how to apply all of them to your practice. Simultaneously experience the grace-filled simplicity and empowering strength of the practice.
