Spiritual Warrior Class
Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have one hour to practice. The class is fast paced and invigorating and is certainly a “get-in-shape” class. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warming up, chanting, setting of intention, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation. The teacher focuses on keeping the pace moving and does not stop to give spiritual discourses. Since the asana sequence is always the same, a student will pick it up quite quickly after only a couple of classes.
Whether you are a beginner, deciphering the difference between vksasana (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:
- Shasta (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. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not much detailed “how to do” descriptions.
