Monday Lunchtime Class - Saffron Walden (45 minutes)
This term-time only hatha yoga class is so much fun to teach. We have a wonderful regular group of students who come, have a LOT of fun, and also develop and progress their practice. The key is about coming back regularly - week after week. For example, we might work one week on focusing on slow opening movements, another week may be dynamic and strong, another very meditative.
This class is suitable for all levels including new to yoga. First Class FREE (subject to limited availability) Then bookings either for 4 weeks (valid ONLY for 4 consecutive weeks) or half a school term (7 consecutive weeks).
What to expect? Postures and practices suitable for all levels (we will use props where necessary to make postural work more accessible and beneficial). To focus on learning the foundational principles of yoga including asana, pranayama, meditation and life philosophy in a non-judgemental, informal and fun environment.

*What is an Open class?
Whether you're newer to yoga classes (some postural yoga experience is helpful) deciphering the difference between vrksasana (tree) and sirshasana(headstand) or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.
Following the teacher's verbal as well as hands-on guidance, asana options will be provided for those newer to yoga, intermediate and advanced students. A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga: shastra (scripture); bhakti (devotion); ahimsa (kindness); nada (music); dhyana (meditation).
An Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. All Open classes include 14 points—asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role in classes and this music is drawn from my experiences as a dj, musician, traveller and yogi.
The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to book a course of one to ones with me.
