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.

JIVAMUKTI OPEN

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 / Busy people

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.

BEGINNERS YOGA CLASSES

Combined with our weekly Jivamukti Basics Class the Start-Up Class is an 1hr Jivamukti Inspired Yoga class, aimed at beginners, couples or those wanting to cultivate a weekly yoga routine. The class is carefully designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of a solid yoga practice and is perfect for beginners and intermediate yoga practitioners but ALL are welcome.

Jivamukti restorative classes

To restore is to return back to our original nature; joy, bliss, happiness. Great for beginners and experienced students alike. Against the backdrop of an ethereal soundtrack, this is a revitalising and steady exploration into the artistry of feeling confident and amazing in your own skin. Experience the magical breakthroughs that have been oh, so elusive through a practice that may contain too much effort. Feel your body melt away tension and anxiety, as you are given unique individual attention to help you release deeper into euphoric uncharted territory.

Meditation Classes

Every Jivamukti Open Class and Spiritual Warrior Class offers the practitioner a few moments of Meditation Practice. If you would like a deeper understanding of this practice, without having to take a Yoga Asana Class, then please contact info@airyoga.co.za for private lessons.

ASHTANGA MYSORE philosophy

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga seeks to create a union of body, mind and spirit. This style was introduced to the West through the work of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the city of Mysore, India. The word “ashtanga” means eight limbs, and refers to the eight areas that make up yoga. All eight limbs carry equal weight, although asana, the physical practice of the postures, is for all practical purposes the best place for any student to begin. The others are yama (moral codes), niyama (self-purification and study), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (sense control), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (total peace).

In practice we work with body, gaze and breath to purify the body, seeking to eliminate the six poisons of desire, anger, delusion, greed, envy and sloth. With the physical practice you are bound to work up a sweat and improve your fitness. While the health benefits are what attract many people to yoga in the first place, they are a happy by-product. The real goal is to create balance, allowing us to live in peace and harmony with others and the rest of creation.

   

vinyasa

The word “vinyasa” is synonymous with Ashtanga Yoga. Vinyasa means breathing and movement system; for each movement, there is one breath. The type of deep, calm breathing used in the practice is often referred to as ‘breath with sound’, and you’ll notice how it quiets the mind while filling the room with a sound much like the ocean.

   

what to expect from an ashtanga mysore class

The traditional approach, as taught by the late Pattabhi Jois and now his grandson Sharath Jois, is to practice six days a week and rest on the seventh. Many beginners are daunted by this challenge, and it is wise to build up your practice slowly and intelligently over time under the guidance of a qualified teacher. You will begin to learn the Primary series, Yoga Chikitsa – a set of seventy-two postures, all performed in a set sequence. However, beginners are given just a few postures to start with. As you master each pose, over weeks, months and years, your teacher will give you the next posture. In this way you learn the sequence by heart slowly and safely. This enables you to focus inwardly, listening to nothing but your own breath, and the result is a meditative moving practice.

   

what to expect from a counted led class

In this class Primary Series is taught in the traditional format where the teacher calls out the posture names and counts the breaths to encourage a seamless meditative flow. The class is steady paced with minimal instructions given, so some familiarity with the Primary Series is needed. This class compliments the Mysore practice and emphasises details of the vinyasa method.
