Slow-moving, deep exploratory class that will provide you with the underlying basics of how a vinyasa practice works. Vinyasa is a method of practicing asana (physical poses), where the asanas are presented in a sequence, flowing one to the next. The practice focuses on aligning one’s breath and spiritual intention with movement. This class is suitable for any level of practitioners of any yoga style.
Class duration ≈ 60 min.
Jivamukti Yoga Open Class
Class duration ≈ 60 to 90 min.
Recommended for beginner and intermediate level practitioners of any yoga method. You are working in a united breath rhythm led by the teacher, under his voice instructions. Teacher does not demonstrate the asanas, but gives verbal instructions while assisting the practitioners. Class duration may vary from 60 to 90 min. Please check the schedule.
Jivamukti Yoga Spiritual Warrior
Class duration ≈ 60 min.
One of the signature Jivamukti classes. This class is dynamic and can definitely be described as the one ‘which will make you more fit’.

What is Jivamukti Yoga ?

Jivamukti metod
The Jivamukti Method is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as "seat, connection" - relationship to the Earth. Earth implies all of life. Citing the ancient philosophy, Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, which states that Asana should be sthira and sukham. Jivamukti Yoga maintains that ones relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a steady (sthira) or constant place of joy, ease (sukham).

This is a radical idea that, when put into practice, has the potential to invert and dismantle the modus operandi of our present society. The current global destruction is based on the idea that Earth all the animals and most humans exist solely for our benefit of the some over the many, the exploitation of Earth for solely selfish purposes.

If we practice yoga asana as more than a physical exercise to keep ones body fit or to increase strength and flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one's relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realization of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness for oneself comes from integration and concern for others.

Five tenets
This core philosophy is expressed through 5 tenets, which form the foundation of Jivamukti Yoga. Jivamukti teachers embody these tenets so that they color all of his or her teachings whether in Fundamentals classes, Open classes, other classes, workshops, or even just interactions with others in the Jivamukti community.

Each of the five tenets should be clearly identifiable in every Open class, even though the names of the tenets may not actually be spoken. By doing this, students learn not to see asana as separate from spiritual study or chanting or meditation, but rather to integrate all of the elements that make up Jivamukti Yoga into one unified practice. This provides for a well-rounded approach to our goal—enlightenment through compassion for all beings.

A nonviolent, compassionate lifestyle extending to other animals, the environment and all living beings, emphasizing ethical vegetarianism (veganism) and animal rights.

Acknowledgment that God/Self-realization is the goal of all yoga practices; can be expressed through chanting, the setting of a high intention for the practice or other devotional practices.

Meditation: connecting to that eternal unchanging reality within.

The development of a sound body and mind through deep listening; can be incorporated in a class using recorded music, spoken word, silence or even the teacher's voice.

Study of the ancient yogic teachings, including Sanskrit chanting, drawn from the Focus of the Month to the extent possible.
Focus of the month
Each month one of the Jivamukti Yoga leading teachers suggests a theme to comprehend and study, known as 'Focus Of The Month'. This theme is integrated in the Jivamukti classes worldwide and unites us all under the umbrella of one thought.
