...or birthday, if you prefer. August 15th marked 12 years after John Friend first penned the mission statement for Anusara yoga. He worked hard to put his vision into words, and the beauty of the vision was enough to bring many practitioners into the fold. His school of hatha yoga has quickly become widespread around the world. I am one of the many who have been enchanted by it.
Here is John Friend's blog about the beginnings of Anusara.
Also, here is Friend's writeup of ethics for the yoga teacher.
That's him in the brown T-shirt and white hair. Do you GET the joy???
