Jivamukti Open Class
Friday 7:15-9:15 pm
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!  It is open to practitioners of all levels. You will work at your own pace, following the teacher’s verbal and hands-on instructions. Jules will provide asana options for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.

The 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:The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner.

Warriors and Sages
Sunday 9 am- 12pm
The sanskrit name is non different from that being invoked by the sound. Virasana, Virabhadrasana, Vashistasana, and Ashtavakrasana are just some of the forms we take of warriors and sages. This Jivamukti yoga class will delve into some of the stories behind these forms, inclduing the Bhagavad Gita, perhaps adding a new dimension to the sound and feeling of the asanas. Get ready to be a sweaty sage…or warrior…or both. Open to all levels.  Mostly Asana. Some chanting and meditation.
