Anusara Yoga, otherwise known as “Yoga of the Heart” was founded in the first half of the 1990’s by John Friend. Based on the general principles of the alignment of the human body, it was developed as an asana. Anusara Yoga begins with three ohms followed by three chants in Sanskrit. Its practice is carefully timed and well organized. After a scandal, the founder and many Gurus of Anusara yoga resigned from the organization. But some are still following this style without the label of Anusara Yoga. It is useful to gain body fitness and flexibility along with physical strength and balance. It is a good exercise for energizing your mind and soul.
