What do you love most about Anusara Yoga?

(1) Viewing the world as a pulsation of complimentary opposites to bring adaptive balance.
(2) Triadic foundation of exploring both inner and outer terrains as mirrors of one other, plus and the relationship between the two as yoga; Hence, concurrent micro/macrocosms.
(3) Diversity of voices within an equitable community, so that yoga continues to be an ever-evolving dynamic inquiry of understanding and making connections.
