Anusara® Yoga Universal Principles of Alignment Primer Part 1: the Principles and the Lower Body

Saturday, June 25, 2022
11.30am - 1.30pm

A principle is a basic idea or rule that explains or determines how something happens or works. In the practice of Anusara yoga there are five main principles of alignment that can be applied in every pose. In this workshop we explore and unpack the five principles that underlie the teaching cues in Anusara yoga classes.

In the first session, we unpack the five main Universal Principles of Alignment, focusing on the lower body. In this context, you will receive:

- a brief overview of nondual philosophy
- a clear template to keep the body safe in the practice
- a consistent framework within which to deepen your understanding of the upper body
- biomechanically sound techniques to enhance your asana practice and promote healing
- above all, an understanding of how aligning the physical body can be a moving meditation—a kinesthetic metaphor for aligning to the highest reality inside and simultaneously outside

ABOUT BO SREY



Originally from New York, Bo began his spiritual journey as a student in Paris where he began to question his beliefs about reality. Upon returning home, he dove deeply into Eastern philosophy, studying with renowned scholar Douglas Brooks at the University of Rochester.

His search eventually led him to his spiritual teacher, in whose presence, he experienced the awakening described by mystics of many traditions. Auspiciously and quite by surprise, he bumped into Professor Brooks at the same event where he met his spiritual teacher. He spent nearly 15 years studying with his spiritual teacher, living and serving at her meditation centers in New York, San Francisco and India. Through his teacher, he found Anusara yoga, the main style of hatha yoga that he now teaches. Anusara yoga is a method of hatha yoga known for its clear alignment principles and expansive nondual philosophy.

Bo began teaching hatha yoga in 2002, moving to San Francisco for much of his training. Continuing the journey westward (from NYC), he moved to Singapore in 2005 where he became the first certified Anusara teacher in Asia. In addition to countless hours with Anusara founder John Friend, he has also apprenticed and trained in San Francisco with Iyengar Yoga teacher Tony Briggs. He is a Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education provider. Now an Experienced Certified Anusara Teacher (ECAT), he is one of the few teachers able teach 300-hr teacher trainings with the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga.

Bo views teaching as service. His classes, whether flowing or more static, include clear alignment instructions. In Anusara yoga classes, he weaves themes with alignment to focus the intention for the practice, always linking the themes back to the highest: Awareness.

In addition to hatha yoga classes, he also teaches pranayama and meditation, having shared his love for these practices with students in private sessions, outdoor meetups, corporate leadership events and prisons.

Since beginning the teaching journey in New York, Bo has taught at major studios in Berkeley, Singapore and Bangkok. In 2005, he moved to Singapore to join the first group of teachers at Pure Yoga. He joined Hom Yoga in 2016.

From 2008, he has had the great good fortune to be invited to travel and teach workshops, retreats, conferences and teacher trainings around the world with his wife, Shirley.

In his free time, he loves to immerse himself in nature: hiking, running, mountain biking and photographing wildlife. He also has a background in mixed martial arts, Qigong and Tai Chi.
