Jivamukti Open Class with Meg McNeal

“When I moved to Johannesburg, South Africa in July 2012 to work at the American International School of Johannesburg as a Spanish teacher, I was fortunate to discover Living Yoga, the Jivamukti affiliate studio in Joburg. I fell in love with the community and teachers and immediately registered for the 2013 Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training in Costa Rica. Since then, I have completed the 800 Hour Jivamukti Apprenticeship Program under the mentorship of Matthew Lombardo and I continue to find eternal inspiration from my teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Baron Baptiste, Jules Febre, and Rima Rani Rabbath.” Join Meg McNeal, visiting Jivamukti, Power & Baptiste Yoga Teacher from Brooklyn, NYC for a dynamic 1h30 yoga class.

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 etheral soundtrack, this is a revitalizing 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 terroritory.

ASHTANGA MYSORE

Mysore style is traditional Ashtanga yoga, taught in India by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois. It is a unique class where you will practice a set sequence of postures at your own pace while a teacher gives you individual guidance and adjustments. As you progress through the series you will receive new postures. For all levels from beginners to advanced. It’s a wonderful way to learn a meditative personal practice.


 

ASHTANGA COUNTED

Counted Primary Series 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 alignment instructions given, so some familiarity with the Primary Series is recommended. This is a great compliment to your Mysore practice.


 

MYSORE BEGINNERS

This is offered a 3 class introduction to the traditional method of Ashtanga yoga. You will be introduced to key concepts of Tristana and the beginning sequence of the Primary Series. This will slowly ease you into the Mysore style which was developed by the late Sri Pattabhi Jois. Suitable for students of all levels, complete beginners or more advanced practitioners wanting to learn about the fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga.
 

ACROYOGA

Working as a team, we’ll cultivate trust, strength, stability and flexibility through partner asana, and partner strength and inversion drills. Then we’ll take it to the air with an acrobatic flying sequence. A playful, safe, supportive environment will empower the whole room to be upside down and connect to their joy. No partner necessary. No experience necessary.


 

VINYASA STyle

Vinyasa is a sanskrit word loosely translated as ‘A seamless, uninterrupted, sequence of events’. Much like the flow of nature. Yoga Asana I.e. the physical practice known as ‘yoga’ in the west! applies this concept as the base principle to the movement of the body. When linked with the breath, a stillness is created, allowing a synchronicity of the body and the mind through a series of yoga poses.

 

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.
