With the departure of my beloved yoga teacher from my neighborhood studio to new adventures that await her and her family, I have been doing a lot of thinking and conversing about what Anusara means to me. My introduction to the style and therefore to a great many friends, some far-flung, as she will be, are among my debts to her. I know that what is distinctive about the style are the Universal Principles of Alignment, a positive philosophy of intrinsic goodness, and the kula. Just what the heck is a kula, if not another bit of yoga jargon?Fortunately for me, in this supportive season, I have the words of “the big guy” himself, spoken in the context of Wanderlust, via YogaModern. Enjoy!
What’s the difference between a kula and a clique? John Friend, Founder of Anusara Yoga, talked with our Managing Editor Chelsea Roff about cliques, communities and kulas at the recent Wanderlust Festival in Vermont.
