ASHTANGA FULL PRIMARY 

This is a lead Ashtanga class, teaching the full primary series.

 

The primary series is the first set of yoga postures, considered most important and foundational, that are taught in traditional Ashtanga yoga. This practice helps practitioners deepen focus inward, learn to extend breath, and is meant to help detoxify and purify the body

ASHTANGA MYSORE

SLOW FLOW

 

A gentle and slow-moving vinyasa flow to ground and relax into our bodies and allow our minds to rest. We move in both standing, seated and reclined postures to open, release and breathe deeply into our bodies. When we move slower we get to feel our bodies more and deepen our breath. Perfect for beginners, and for you if you feel the need to calm down, but still want some movement.

MYSTICA VINYASA FLOW

The MYSTICA Vinyasa Flow consists of four different vinyasa-style sequences, all including asana, pranayama mudra, mantra, song, chants, and chakras.

 

Each flow embraces the cycles of nature and is specifically tailored to the energy of each one of the four seasons - winter/earth, spring/air, summer/fire, and autumn/water - allowing the practitioner to re-align and re-connect with the rhythm of the Earth as we move through the wheel of the year.

HIP FLOW

A deep and fluid vinyasa class, teaching you to release tension in the hips. There are so many reasons to do hip-opening poses: Supple hips can ease back pain and improve circulation in your legs.

 

There are also more subtle benefits to hip openers, as we hold stress and negative emotions—such as fear, guilt, and sadness—in our pelvis, this all can be released.

 

A regular hip opening practice will make your body let go of everything that doesn't benefit the body and mind. Release!

JIVAMUKTI OPEN CLASS

 

Jivamukti 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 - tailored to the topic of the month, always the same across the globe.

JIVAMUKTI SPIRITUAL WARRIOR

 

The class offers a well-rounded practice and is designed to be completed in one hour. Thus, it is suitable for those who have limited time to devote to a yoga practice, for those who are looking for a workout to “shape up” physically, and for those who are looking to include a robust asana practice in a manageable daily routine. Because it is a fixed sequence that is always the same, a student has the opportunity to progress to the level of mastery by committing to a consistent, steady, regular sadhana.

REST + REPLENISH

Sweet practices that focus on silence and the art of attention. Patience is fostered and quieting the mind is the process. These classes are for creating not only space in the physical body but to create space between your thoughts and emotions. Immerse yourself into the quiet.

YIN

 

Yin Yoga is the art of being able to let go. You can expect to bring your focus in this hour long class on the present moment and your conscious and intelligent body.  Passive positions are held for a 3-5 min to help release fascia and connective tissue so that the energy in the body can flow more freely. This class is an all-level class and a gentle practice.

Feel free to bring some fuzzy socks and a warm sweater to your yin practice so you can really snuggle up and enjoy the long holds, warm and comfortable.

GROUNDING FLOW

 

A gentle and slow-moving class to ground ourselves and relax into our bodies, allowing our minds to rest. Through the hour, we move in both standing, seated and reclined postures to open, release and breathe deeply into our bodies. When we move slower we get to feel our bodies more and deepen our breath, and in this slow and gentle pace, we stimulate our parasympathetic nervous system, which again brings us to a calmer and more present state.

 

Perfect for beginners, and for you who need a little help to drop out of your head, and come down into your body.

RESTORATIVE

 

Restorative yoga helps you enter a state of deep relaxation as you hold soft poses for longer periods of time with the help of props to make you comfortable and supported throughout the hour.

 

The main focus of restorative yoga is that by relaxing in poses, with the aid of props, without strain or pain, you can enter a deeper state of physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. The slowing down also helps stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system, which again deepens your breath, slows your heart rate, increases the blood flow to your vital organs, and reduces overall stresses in your body. The practice is great to balance an active yoga schedule or giving yourself a break when you feel under the weather.

YOGA NIDRA

 

Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful guided meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga you can do. While resting comfortably on your back in savasana, this systematic meditation takes you through "the five layers of self" (the pancha maya kosha), leaving you with a sense of wholeness.

 

"In yoga nidra, we restore our body, senses, and mind to their natural function and awaken a seventh sense that allows us to feel no separation, that only sees wholeness, tranquility, and well-being" - Richard Miller

 

Feel free to bring some fuzzy socks, a warm sweater and an eye pillow (if you have) to your yin + yoga nidra practice so you can really snuggle up and enjoy the long holds, warm and comfortable.

PILATES

This class brings out the essence of what Pilates work uncovers. With intention and embodied awareness we engage the muscles that support and carry our bodies - opening for an expanded thinking of what building strength, mobility, and balance can mean in inhabiting the whole self.

Focusing particularly on the deep abdominals, pelvic floor, and backs we attend to restore and maintain everyday functional movement and posture, as well as seeing the tactile connection and impact between the core and our organs, such as for example the digestive system.

The class is a great supplement to your yoga practice or as a meditative movement class on its own. We hold space for a slightly smaller group at a time to accommodate different levels and needs
