Jivamukti ( Jee-va-mook-tee )

Jivamukti Yoga is a rigorous Hatha-Vinyasa practice which includes asana practice (poses), breath awareness, pranayama, meditation, chanting, and deep relaxation.  It combines hands-on-assists and savasana massages to guide you deeper into your personal practice (Sadhana).

 

Developed in 1984 by Sharon Gannon and David Life, Jivamukti Yoga follows five central tenets to give a modern integrated approach to the ancient art of yoga:  Ahimsa (Non-violence), Bhakti (Devotion), Dhyana (Meditation), Nada (Sound), and Shastra (Scriptures).  We offer classes suitable for all levels, and teachings are drawn from Jivamukti’s Focus of the Month.

 

Here in the Studio we have both a Fundamentals ( Beginners ) class and an Open ( Mixed Ability ) class.  

Jivamukti Fundamentals - Beginners

This class is ideal for beginners or students wishing to refine their practice, students are taught “how to do” asanas through the use of props and partner exercises.  The Fundamentals class provides the underlying structure to help a student be able to eventually enter into an Open class intelligently and safely.  The Jivamukti Fundamentals class focuses on a different theme each week, so come along and learn how to develop a yoga practice.

Week 1: Standing Asanas
Week 2: Forward Bending
Week 3: Back Bending
Week 4: Inversions, Meditation, and 'Putting It All Together

 

Jivamukti Open - Mixed Ability

 

The Open class is a dynamic intermediate Hatha-Vinyasa class. You work at your own pace, following the teacher’s verbal as well as hands-on guidance. Classes work through intelligent sequences designed to prepare the body for a peak pose.  

Classes flow through a warm-up, sun salutations, and challenging vinyasa sequences to develop strength, flexibility, awareness, and coordination. Classes may include pranayama, meditation, chanting, and yoga philosophy to give students an immersive experience.  Options will be provided for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students.
