Adam Ballenger, Certified Anusara Teacher E-RYT 500, Anusara borad member

After many years of practicing yoga, I took the advice of a new friend and went to a yoga class at Arizona Yoga.  This was just near the end of 1998, and almost 20 years later I’m so thankful that I went.

The studio was run by Desiree Rumbaugh, and I had never seen or practiced yoga like this.  There was philosophy, alignment, a practice that sometimes changed day to day and at times was repeated and again as the students needed. At first, I was attracted to the intense instruction and technique. The techniques were used to increase safety and help students progress in their practice of asana.
