Anuttara Yoga Shala wins "Best Yoga Studio in 2012 in the Broward and Palm Beach Best Of issue from NewTimes"
ANUTTARA YOGA means The Supreme Yoga, the negation of the comparative. Based on Shaivist Advaita principles to achieve "Yoga" or "Union" with Self.
Anuttara Yoga Shala is a School of Yoga with the most diverse and varied menu of authentic yoga all as Anuttara Yoga.
From very traditional to edgy you will find it all here!
Anuttara Yoga is a specific style of yoga that depends on the intellectual foundation of Maharishi Patanjali's Ashtanga, the physical practices as described by Yogiraj Krishnamacharya and Yogiraj Bishnu Goshe and the spiritual path to Self Realization as promulgated by Lahiri Mahasaya Baba, Sri Swami Sri Yukteswar and Sri Swamiji Paramahansa Yogananda.
Anuttara Yoga can be practiced in a variety of ways:
Anuttara Hot Hatha Yoga where the room is heated to over 95*F. We move the body into a Pose, Counter pose and Repose representing the three qualities of Nature so as to safely access the body and all systems. We do a set of sequences and "Echo" with variation, or "Visarga" in the subsequent sequence. All levels.
Anuttara Gentle Yoga is similar to the above but more gentle and beginner friendly. This is practiced in a non-heated room. To maintain body heat, we gently flow from one sequence to the next. All levels.
Anuttara Restorative Yoga uses bolsters, blocks, pillows and other props to guide the body- mind into a deeply restful and restorative state while easing out physical and mental stress. Unheated.
Anuttara Core and Fitness Flow. As the name implies, we focus on core strength and slowly radiate out to the limbs, energizing the whole body. The final phase is deeply restorative and relaxing. Unheated. All levels.
Anuttara Yoga Barre. Unique, fun and very challenging. We use the Ballet Barre to hold and explore Asana, especially balancing sequences. Unheated. All levels.
Anuttara Yin Yoga. From the Taoist tradition of yoga, Yin Yoga accesses connective tissue and joints in a soft yet sometimes challenging way. This is done in an unheated room so that the fascia can be felt and accessed before the muscle warms up. Essential for joint and connective tissue health. All levels.
Anuttara Raja Yoga. Completely unique to Anuttara. This form of practice is tranquilizing to the mind and yet will energize the body and soothe the soul. Always practiced in our Hot Grand Tapas Hall, we use the Yoga Sutra through body and mind to access the Higher Self. Serious hip openers and connective tissue access with plenty of visualization and philosophy. We forsake all muscle tension and melt into Gravity. Come early as space is limited. Hot. All levels.
Anuttara Hot Vinyasa Krama. We use the guideline of the Sapta Krama, the Seven Sequences to achieve a very energized and transcendant state. Challenging and powerful. Some Vinyasa experience is essential. Hot. All levels.
Anuttara Hot Vinyasa. Movement, Breathe, Music and Sweat. Hot. Intermediate-Advanced.
Anuttara Ashtanga Vinyasa. Same as above, but no heat, no mirrors. Intermediate-Advanced.
Anuttara Dhyana Krama - Morning Meditative Flow. Warm with deep meditation, soft music punctuated with optional Sun Salutation sequences. Best way to start the day! All levels.
Anuttara Sacred Music Flow. Minimum instruction, Music, Candlelight and Magic. Hot. Intermediate-Advanced.
