Bond of Asana yoga programs are based on 8 week courses of systematic and focused exploration of the intrinsic stability and mobility within specific areas of the body for an overall increase in self awareness within our movement and action.
There are two tracks to choose from– Deep Dive intended for long time practitioners and yoga teachers and Supportive Waters intended for students with therapeutic needs and those new to the Anusara Yoga practice.
With five separate 8 week courses we will work our way around the body over a year’s time. Hand pick one or more courses, or commit to the full year with a significantly discounted tuition.

Julia Pearring, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, supports students in the exploration of their optimal range, to uncover the strength and potential of a deeper alignment no matter their range of movement. Her advanced studies have included extensive anatomy, kinesiology and physiology training through cadaver dissections with Gil Hedley, explorations of Body Mind Centering and Laban Movement analysis with Amy Matthews plus fascial research with Tom Myers, and more. Her integrated focus on form, movement and the principles of Anusara yoga organically built a thriving private therapeutic yoga practice. She strongly believes that an active sadhana, basing one’s personal practice on committed self inquiry and compassionate process, is invaluable for yoga teachers and practitioners.
Julia lives in NYC. Teaching yoga since 2008, she is a sought after teacher and teacher trainer. Recently, she co-wrote the new Therapeutic Applications of Anusara Yoga Teacher’s Guide.

Course Outline for Nov 2020 – Jan 2021:
Part 1: Feet and Ankles, a 4 week exploration
Part 2: Knees, a 4 week exploration
Each 4 week exploration begins with re-awakening optimal joint range and intrinsic muscle support and ultimately leads to exploring how this area of the body is pivotal to the wellbeing and full expression of the body as a whole. Practical and accessible contemplations and yoga teachings are introduced that accompany the work and give our embodied life a deeper meaning.
Each week launches on Sunday morning with the release of the materials for the week. Engage with them at a pace that works for you.
Each week includes a session on Fridays 12:30-1:45pm Eastern Time (East Coast USA). These will be either a live, interactive yoga class, a Q&A session or personal contemplation assignment (that can also be done with a partner from the program). Everyone will receive recordings of these, so if you are not available to attend live, you can watch freely at your own time, again and again.
What happens if I can’t attend the live events?
This doesn’t disqualify you from joining. All the live events will be video and audio recorded so that you can participate when it works for your schedule. (I recommend establishing a regular time to do so for the sake of consistency!) There will be opportunities to submit questions before our Q&As and before our live classes, so that you are included and supported as your process unfolds– even if you are not with us live.
What is the time commitment?
The recorded material, weekly live events and other contemplations and exercises comprise a minimum of 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete. The material is expanded each additional time you practice it. I recommend a commitment of 3 hours a week, to be sure there is integration of the material, and up to 5 hours a week, if you have this kind of time it would allow the material to resonate and impact in the most profound ways.
Will I have access to the material after the program ends?
The material will be available to you for one year’s time after the program has completed. Meaning you can easily come back and access the different components as you integrate and reflect on the material over time.
What supplies will I need to have before we start?
- It’s ideal to have the typical yoga props- mat, two blocks, blanket and a strap. There are household items that can stand in for these, but if you plan to commit to your asana practice, it’s not a bad idea to invest in these for this program.
- Journal/committed space to write, track your thoughts/progress and engage in contemplations. In this day and age it is quite possible to do most of this on the computer, but important to consider if free writing– pen to paper- is valuable enough for you to have that option handy.
- Access to a device that is compatible with zoom technology, has a working camera and microphone and can be set up in a space where you are easily visible standing on your mat (for live classes specifically.)
What happens after this first 8 week course?
The full Bond of Asana yoga program includes 5 eight-week courses that cover the body in 5 areas and spans a year of study–
- Feet, ankles & knees Nov 2020 – Jan 2021
- Thighs & hips Jan – Mar 2021
- Hands, wrists & elbows Mar – May 2021
- Upper arm & shoulders May – July 2021
- Lower spine & upper spine Aug – Oct 2021

I have a more extreme misalignment/compromised system due to illness/
I am currently pregnant. Is the Supportive Waters course track the right program for me?
This track is open to those who have specific therapeutic needs or are just newer and open to the discovery of their body’s innate potential. Please feel free to email me, firstname.lastname@example.org if you are concerned about joining, let’s see if this course can meet your particular needs. Overall, I hope that you have an interest in working with the material and a commitment to communicating and asking questions so that you can be supported to work from where you are. Let’s talk!
