Ananda means bliss, and on this journey, we practice awakening to our natural state of conscious bliss in all circumstances, as we begin to see the profound gift of simply being alive. Ananda Vinyasa is all about transitioning away from the never-ending stream of demands, lists and things yet undone. It's about gathering all of the seemingly disparate pieces of our lives and bringing them back to the present moment, one inhale and one exhale at a time. This challenging, intensive sequence focuses on leg strength, core power, building heat, developing arm tone and cultivating flexibility of mind, body and heart. Intermediate Janet's personal yoga journey began in 1996 when she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, where she met an inspired yogi and became dedicated to a conscious evolution through yoga. She currently teaches in San Francisco, and at teacher trainings, workshops and retreats around the world.

Wow! Once again, Janet Stone has produced a rockin' yoga video series.
Ananda Vinyasa is strikingly beautiful to watch. Set to awesome music Janet offers up unique, challenging and inspiring movement, guiding us to connect the breath to the poses.
Janet's warm gentle voice, inviting and nurturing, clearly guides us through every nuance of movement, a rich paring with her impeccable demonstration of the poses.
I also highly recommend her previous videos, Radiant Flow and Mellow Flow.
Do I sound like a fan? You bet!
