Gisele Bundchen Is a Fan of Anusara Yoga

How does expectant mother Gisele Bundchen stay in shape? Aside from exercising and playing outdoors with Tom Brady and little John, Gisele practices Anusara yoga in the morning for an hour.

Anusara means "flowing with grace,” “going with the flow,” or “following your heart." As the name suggests, this type of yoga has a deeply spiritual side that is focused on connecting with the Divine Spirit (God), opening the heart, and uplifting your soul. As you flow through the challenging sequence of postures, the teacher will give extremely specific verbal cues to help you get your bones, muscles, and even your organs in the right place to ensure proper outer and inner body alignment. At the end of class, your body will feel open and light, and your mind will feel calm and content. Practicing Anusara yoga will increase your flexibility and strength both emotionally and physically. If you're looking to deepen your yoga practice, definitely try Anusara.

This sounds like Forrest Yoga with strength, grace, beauty, emotion, and letting go of what no longer serves us.

bigestivediscuit - In Anusara classes, instructors will always emphasize the spiritual aspect of yoga, while in Vinyasa classes, they may not (it depends on the instructor).

How is Anusara different from Vinyasa?
