Telluride residents can get a taste of the first American-based yoga in three sections this summer.
Certified Anusara Yoga instructor Tanya Beilke will host three five-day clinics in Telluride this June, July and August. Beilke, the founder of a Los Angeles yoga studio, has been teaching Anusara since 2001.
“She has extensive experience in the therapeutic aspects of yoga,” Crilly says, “and is committed to helping others in their healing process.”
Developed by Ohio-native John Friend in 1997, Anusara Yoga is a popular style of hatha yoga, the 15th century system of yoga that is the most widely practiced outside India. Telluride Yoga's Allison Crilly says Anasura accepts all types of students and has an “uplifting philosophy, epitomized by a 'celebration of the heart' that looks for the good in all people and all things.” She added that Friend's system of building poses makes Anusara yoga accessible to any level of yoga enthusiast.
The 108-hour program will be held in the Ah Haa School's new gallery room and costs $575 per session, or $1,500 for all three clinics. The sessions will include overviews of the method, studies of tantric philosophy and the Universal Principles of Alignment, meditation, lessons in anatomy and kinesiology, meditation, contemplation, and journaling. Part one is from June 8 to 12, part two is from August 12 to 16, and part three is from October 7 to 11.
