We Canadians are a peaceful, hearty and hardy people. Here, Anusara Yoga is still in its infancy. In many cities our Anusara community is a small and sometimes dispersed group of teacher(s) and students. We are nurturing the tender growth of our community with steady love amidst a mix of fertile and rocky conditions, metaphorically speaking. Judy Nyberg from Calgary area says, “I believe that in this region of Canada we will be starting from the beginning with Anusara. This is not necessarily a bad thing but it will be an uphill climb – we are used to climbing uphill in this part of Canada however because we are located in the foothills of the beautiful Rocky Mountains! Here we experience mountain magic! The presence of the Divine Shakti is everywhere! The Yoga community…has unbound potential for love. I believe that with care and nurturing Anusara will once again flourish in this region of Canada.”

Judy speaks for many of us. While our differences may be the local physical landscape, our heart-felt unity is Universal. There is a lot of positive energy flowing into our community. We have many courageous and passionate individuals and groups in Canada and around the world who are devoted to seeing Anusara thrive and grow.

With ASHY established teacher certification is moving forward. This is supported by the ASHY global certification committee and managed by our individual regions.

We have our own Facebook page where we may post events, share ideas, information as well as love and support. Anusara Yoga Canada Facebook – please Like our page!
