Anusara inspired Yoga

The term Anusara means "flowing with grace". Anusara Yoga is based on Hatha yoga. It combines simple and effective biomechanical principles to adjust the body with a deep, spiritual understanding of yoga. It means that we become aware of and embrace every facet of our humanity, including our light and shadow, our emotions, impressions, and thoughts. Yoga is a practice of opening our hearts to the present moment. Our mind and body should not be subjected to external controls but rather be aligned with our hearts so that our practice can originate from deep within.   
These classes focus on precision and technique but are also light and fun. They are guided at a slower pace and are suitable for all levels.

The practice of Yoga, for CJ, is the embodiment of Sthira and Sukha - steadiness and ease. She believes that the bridge between the two is the playful, energetic dance of the breath. Thus the purpose of our practice is to engage in this dance on our mats and then allow it to guide us in our daily encounters off the mat.
CJ deeply embraces T.K.V.Desikachar’s philosophy that even in a group setting, Yoga is still an individual practice. As such, in her classes, she invites students to explore the mind and body connection using their breath as the vehicle to facilitate this interplay between steadiness and ease.
10 years ago CJ was introduced to the works of Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, and Joseph Goldstein. Since then, Vipassana Meditation has been an important part of her life. She has attended workshops and trainings with Katchie Ananda, Doug Keller, Stephen Thomas and many other inspirational meditation and yoga teachers. CJ completed her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2015 at AIRYOGA and finished a second 200-hour training in Dharma & Yoga with Katchie Ananda in 2016. She teaches in English and German.

Michael Thurnherr

It was in Pushkar, India, that Michael was first introduced to the tradition of Yoga by Yogi Shyamlal in 1997. Over the years, he let himself be inspired by various yoga traditions and teachers, until he eventually obtained the Anusara Yoga teaching certification in 2002. It is of great importance to Michael to incorporate the spiritual dimension of yoga in his teaching and to make it possible for students to experience it. He is very skilled at establishing the connection to every day life so the realizations of a yoga class can be applied to „normal life“. He complements the non-dual tantric philosophy with his experience as a follower of the Lassalle-Glassman zen lineage, where he has been practicing zen intensively under the guidance of Niklaus Brantschen-Roshi since 1999. Each yoga practice thus becomes an artistic expression of the heart and connects precision, balance and deep senitment.
Since April 2009, Michael and his wife Lina have been running the studio Yogaloft in Rapperswil-Jona. Besides regular classes, Michael teaches workshops and retreats with his wife. He also offers yoga therapy and has been part of the faculty of the AIRYOGA 200h teacher training since 2007. Besides being a dedicated yoga teacher, Michael runs his own graphic design business 2ND WEST full-time in Rapperswil and is the father of two children. Michael teaches in German and English.
