Attention Anusara Geeks! Today’s “must read” is the first post on “Kula Evolution,” the website of the transitional Interim Steering Committee, soon to be Leadership Committee, negotiating with John Friend about the transfer of the Anusara name to a community of teachers. I’m excited by these developments. I think Anusara is a new paradigm for yoga, and so has the potential to use what it knows to transform itself. Far from being irrelevant, if this can be pulled off, it will still have much to teach us.
We believe the yoga system and alignment principles that we have been studying and teaching for years have great value to the world, and we want to maintain the integrity of this system. We want students to be able to learn this system and teachers to continue to be able to be certified in it.
In order to ensure greater unity of the community, we have created this space called Kula Evolution. This will give the community a chance to communicate ideas, get involved, and move forward toward a selection of leaders and a creation of a new paradigm.
