Many of us are reluctant to start exercising regularly because it involves pain, or strain, or special equipment, or others to work out with, or traveling to get to the playing field. If this is true for you, then yoga may be just the approach you need to start you on the road to overall fitness. Anusara (AHN-u-sahr-a) yoga, one of many yoga systems being taught worldwide, not only focuses on the alignment of your outer body but also encourages awareness of your spiritual essence. This type of yoga is as much an art as a science, and those who study it seek to embody qualities of the heart through the movements - not just to stretch or strengthen the body.
The word yoga means union." It is a discipline that seeks to unite the body, mind, heart, and spirit. It is an ideal practice for those in search of high-level wellness.
