It is already a great teaching to observe her act and behave. We feel she really integrated, in a deep way, opening to grace and experiencing balance between self-effort and letting go… The content of her program is complete, well structured, accessible, interesting and stimulating!

  • “About the Teacher training, I would like to quote this idea excerpted from an article: “Life does not abide in the molecules but in the relationship they establish among them”. This is a fundamental principle held by our esteemed teacher Barrie Risman. She teaches us, at our own pace, from who we are, how we can translate the wonderful experience of Anusara Yoga to others, making it accessible with defined and efficient principles. Knowledgeable, sensitive and kind, she is an example to others and an exceptional guide.” Carole G.
