What is Jivamukti Yoga?
The Jivamukti Yoga method is recognized by TIME magazine as one of the nine methods of Hatha Yoga taught in the world today and is featured in the acclaimed video: What is Yoga? A Jivamukti Yoga class involves an ever changing flow of postures (vinyasa) that is intended to challenge you on many levels. Each class revolves around a theme based on ancient wisdom and emphasizes the importance of practicing with an elevated intention. Chanting, meditation, and inspiring music are a part of every class.
Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role. Whether you’re a beginner, or an advanced yogi Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.
JIVAMUKTI SPIRITUAL WARRIOR
Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have 45min or an hour to practice. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warm-up, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation. Classes are for all levels.
**JIVAMUKTI BASICS COURSE
In this 4 week course you will explore the foundation and fundamental principals of yoga asana practice. Focusing on proper alignment, the student will gain detailed instruction of how to safely execute and modify each posture to suit oneʼs individual body. This course is designed for absolute beginners as well as experienced practitioners interested in going deeper into the fundamentals of yoga asana.
VINYASA OPEN CLASS
The word “vinyasa” is a Sanskrit word meaning “uninterrupted flow/sequence of events”; linking one movement (ASANA) to one breath (PRANAYAMA). The type of deep, calm breathing used in the practice is often referred to as ‘victorious breath’ or Ujjayi. When we are able to focus our attention on a single point of focus, this leads to a deep state of concentration (Dharana) which leads to meditation (Dhyana) which ultimately leads to a sense of peace or oneness of being / bliss (Samadhi). Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.
