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.
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.
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.
