I've been fortunate to attend classes taught by several different Anusara certified or inspired teachers, and they really aren't consistent. Some are wonderful, others not so much. And there are some WONDERFUL teachers out there with RYT credentials that aren't Anusara. You really can't tell everything by the name. I think you just have to go to a class a few times and see how that teacher works for you.
I don't think you can really tell much by reading a teacher's bio. Teaching comes from personal practice and what is in the teacher's heart. It's difficult to put that into a resume.
The certification process for Anusara is nuts. The only thing you know for sure if someone is Ansuara certified is that they have spent thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars on yoga teacher training.
We moved last summer and I'm missing my teachers in my old city too. I finally find a teacher here I really like (RYT200) and she's now out on an injury!
True that in any yoga style all teachers are not the same. Anusara has touched my heart and I that is probably so much in part to my teacher. I know her practice, teaching and spiritual studies began long before she even became Anusara certified and so I have benefitted through her a long line of wonderful teachers. So for me I have been used to having a teacher that has a very strong spiritual practice and it's true that no teachers bio can really relate that.
I guess maybe that is where I'm headed in my own practice, a division between my spiritual teachers and my weekly yoga class. I was just extremely fortunate to have both for a time.
On another note I've restarted my personal practice. It really took a dive with our move and the birth of my son last year and working through some grief with losing access to to my teacher.
I previously had an early morning practice which worked really well for me. Not a lot of strong asana but it fit my life with little ones. I think I was waiting for ds2 to start STTN so I could get up early but that is not happening. So fortunately for now I've found time for an afternoon practice during his naps.
