The Anusara Bulletin – Stepping into the current and leading from the Heart

Stepping into the current and leading from the Heart

 My experience as a Board of Directors Member

by Laura Cassini, Former Board Member from Italy

Dear Anusara® Yoga Lover,

Some of the most cherished memories in my life come from my years on the Anusara Board of Directors.

The ones in the Board of Directors are among the most cherishable memories in my life.

Having the opportunity to plant seeds (for the future of Anusara yoga), seeing them grow and bringing delicious fruits is unfathomable. And guess what? It is within the reach of every teacher and every student. It is for sure less complicated than you can imagine.

Being a Board member means that you are in front of an unshaped piece of clay that you can mold with the nice and friendly support of the other members. It is a shared piece of art made of new visions and shapes that will make the  Anusara yoga sustainable and in bloom for a long, long time

Sounds familiar, co-create? It’s up to us, to each one of us.

What inspired me to stand up from my inner couch and offer myself to serve on the ASHY Board, was the possibility to repay the immensity of knowledge, wisdom, and health I received from the Anusara teachings.

I received so much in returnMy mind opened up from connecting with teachers from different countries such as China, South America, North America, different parts of Europe; different ages and different mindsets.

The respect and attention I received from everyone on the Board influenced my personal life and my approach to challenges that I can see now as a golden occasion to find new paths and solutions that encompass everyone, not only me.

Those 6 years expanded not only my comprehension of humanity, but also my knowledge in different areas such as economy, communications, marketing, fundraising, policy and also law!

This wealth of knowledge I have now is helpful in my daily work as an Anusara teacher. 

It helps me to accept diversity between my students with more awareness of who they truly are, to relate to my daily duties as a studio owner with confidence and capacity, and to relate to fellow teachers worldwide within a compassionate communication framework.

The time spent in the Board allowed me to finalize different projects that really made me enthusiastic!

  • “Anusara Marga: the Path of Anusara Yoga” online magazine, you can find the issues here.
  • The course Market Yourself, is available here.
  • Samavesha online 2021 
  • The Anusara Yoga Communications Guideline 
  • Supporting the creation of the “Heart of Anusara” events section in our website. 
  • The Fundamental and Innovation policy that is just being approved,
  • The Donors Stewardship project and much more.

The overall feeling I have now is that if you want to help and grow as a human being and as an Anusara teacher, the Anusara Board of Directors is the best place to be. 

It is so refreshing to end your day knowing that your work is for the benefit of many people, not only for yourself.

I really wish you to have the great fortune to serve on the Board and release this amrita, the nectarean ambrosia, of being an instrument of Grace in your being!

With a full Heart I pranam to each one of You,

Laura Casini
