Anusara Immersion, Part I
Nikki Jacobs and Marc St Pierre
This event has passed.
Anusara yoga was founded by John Friend in 1997, as a profound, effective and elegant hatha yoga system. It blends the ancient art of yoga with the science of bio-mechanics. This combination of Anusara’s life affirming tantric philosophy and asana practice with the universal principals of Alignment has the power for deep transformation. John friend has organized a deeper level of study that recognizes that the path of yoga is a life long journey. Anusara immersions give you the opportunity to go deeper into your yoga practice on every level. Through the study of asana (yoga poses), philosophy and a dedication to community you can step fully into a new level of inspiration on your yoga path. It is an invitation of empowerment and self-awareness to the truth that beauty and grace are innately your nature.

Marc St. Pierre is a Certified Anusara teacher known internationally who has had the good fortune to establish Anusara on the fantastical island of Maui, where he lived for seven years. Marc now travels and teaches and cannot believe that this is his “job!” Clearly, and with enormous gratitude for the Anusara community, and for John Friend, Marc celebrates teaching yoga as his vocation and service.
“Marc is a loving and knowledgeable kick in the pants!”
Nikki Jacobs RYT-500, Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher was introduced to yoga in 1994 but was completely blown away by Anusara when she took her first class in 2001. She has studied primarily with John Friend (the founder of Anusara Yoga) and Deb Neubauer. Nikki infuses her classes with an authentic enthusiasm and love of the practice. She draws her inspiration from her everyday experiences and teaches from the heart. She has over seventeen years of experience working in orthopedics and specializing in the upper extremity. This detailed knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology is reflected in her clear alignment instructions and therapeutic knowledge. “I am filled with such gratitude for my teachers for their eloquent and clear teachings and to John Friend for the gift of this beautiful life-affirming school of yoga.”
