MONDAY LUNCHTIME CLASS
This term-time only class is so much fun to teach. We have a great group who come regularly and that's the point of this class. A 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.
1st class is free. Then bookings either for 4 weeks or half a school term (7 weeks).
*What is an Open class?
Whether you're a beginner, 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.
You work at your own pace, following the teacher's verbal as well as hands-on guidance. Asana options will be provided for beginners, 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 for me, 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.
