How session classes work:
Registration is for a specific level of class on a specific day for once a week through duration of the session. Students are encouraged to consult with teacher for appropriate level if new to Anusara Yoga or for permission to move up to a new level. Classes are taught progressively and will review material covered in previous weeks while gradually building up new techniques each week.
If for any reason the student is absent for a class a make-up class can be made in the same level class or a lower level class during the active session. All makeup classes must be completed by the end of the current session. Classes do not carry over into the next session. Missed classes may be made up in advance of absence or after absence. If making up a class please sign in as usual and write “make- up” next to your name.
Anusara Session Policies
Anusara Yoga, Flowing with Grace, is a sophisticated, elegant, heart-oriented system of yoga based on sound biomechanics and life-celebrating Tantric philosophy.
It weaves together all aspects of yoga into a unified whole that celebrates the heart
and honors the body. Developed by John Friend, Anusara Yoga emphasizes
Universal Principles of Alignment to ensure safety in the poses and to create
balance in thebody and mind.
Free Sample Classes are held the week before the session begins.
They are an opportunity for new students to see our Yoga Center,
meet the instructors, and experience the appropriate class level to sign up for.
Please come early to sign in and reserve your space. Mats and props are provided.
Session Class Format: Progressive Teaching is a crucial part of our program.
Each session has specific beginning and ending dates, allowing classes to be
sequenced progressively over the session. This format of classes empowers
students to have a strong working knowledge of the Universal Principles of
Alignment and aids in creating a dedicated, weekly commitment to the practice.
Make-Ups: We strongly encourage students to get the full experience of the course by making up any classes missed. Missed classes can only be made up during the current session at the same level or lower. There is no need to call ahead to take a make-up class. Just come to any appropriate level class and sign in and write “make-up” next to your name on the class sign-in form.
Drop-in Classes: Drop-ins are allowed for students who are currently enrolled and wish to take an extra class or for students who are not enrolled but have completed an equivalent level of Anusara or Iyengar yoga. Anusara drop in classes are $16.
Please pre-pay in the office before class begins.
Refunds: Once the session has began classes are non-refundable. If you have missed class due to a serious illness or injury please make your request to your individual teacher to accommodate an appropriate make-up policy for your circumstance.
Injuries/Physical limitations: We have a wide range of classes to support people with various physical conditions. Please let your teacher know before class about any
physical or medical conditions.
Clothing: Wear comfortable clothes: long shorts, tights or leggings.
Please no baggy pants as they mask the alignment of the legs.
Remove your shoes before entering the yoga room.
Classes Start on Time! Please arrive for your class on time. If you are late, please wait to quietly enter the studio after you hear the beginning chant. Do not enter during the centering please. Please do not enter a class if you are late by 15 min. or more.
Please come with bare feet, an empty stomach & an open mind!

There is a focus on Handstand, Pincha Mayurasana and Backbends. Emphasis is also on a strength, technique, philosophy and play.
Anusara Yoga Practice Class 2+
Wednesday @ 5:45pm & Thursday @ 10:45am
An invigorating practice with Paul or a juicy hour and a half guided by Sommer, these classes are less formal because they are taught in a practice format (teacher practices alongside students). Focus is on connecting with community, spicing up one’s practice, learning playful variations and modifications. These two Practice Classes are the only Anusara classes available to passcard holders. It is suggested that students have at least one-year experience of Hatha Yoga to attend. This class is not appropriate for students with major injuries or special needs.
