Anusara is a modern-day version of hatha yoga, most similar to vinyasa in that it that focuses on alignment but with more focus on the mind-body-heart connection and different verbiage. Anusara focuses on spirals and how each body part should be moving. Anusara is also known for its emphasis on heart opening.

Doing yoga with weights can help you become lean and strong. Bring #2 weights. A regular yoga practice increases your flexibility, mental focus, stress relief, lung capacity, longevity, endurance, and strength. It also assists in injury prevention by increasing the body’s ability to operate in its full range of motion. Strength Training on the other hand, will help you to maintain healthy bones, raise your metabolism, build muscle, improve your sports performance, and greatly improve your balance. Most strength training involves your muscles contracting as they flex, but in order to create balance in those muscles we need to lengthen them and increase the range of motion in our joints as yoga moves do. Lean Yoga will work double duty to create muscles that are strong, long, and lean.
