Jivamukti Open classes center on a theme based on a globally-set "Focus of the Month" essay, usually written by either Sharon Gannon or David Life. The theme is explored through "dharma talks", reflections on the modern relevance of yoga scripture, music, asanas (postures or poses), pranayama (breathing), and meditation. The largest portion of the class consists of asana practiced as vinyasa. In vinyasa (movement synchronized with breath and intention) the teacher guides the student through a vigorous sequence of poses. The exact sequence is left to the discretion of the teacher, but always includes inversions, such as headstand and shoulderstand. During the vinyasa phase, the teacher assists practitioners with hands-on adjustments. The class concludes with a period of deep relaxation and meditation.
Mixed level classes. Suitable for all levels. Teachers offer lots of variations and alignment instructions.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
Everyone is welcome to join Sevadevi and bhakti singers and musicians from around Sydney in devotional call and response chanting known as 'Kirtan'. Held on the first Saturday of every month. Entry is by donation with all proceeds going to the Food for Life charity.
THE BEGINNERS COURSE
A comprehensive 12 week course designed to fill the gaps between beginning and general classes.
Each individual course runs for 4 weeks. Enrolments essential, to book contact Miya on 0406 585 730.
Course 1: Basic Curriculum
A comprehensive 4 week course for the brand new yogi. Taught from the Jivamukti basic curriculum:
Week 1 - Standing asana.
Week 2 - Forward bending.
Week 3 - Back bending.
Week 4 - Putting it all together.
Students will attend once a week and familiarise themselves with the practice and a weekly attendance. After completion of Course 1 it is recommended to continue to Course 2 to build on the foundation.
Course 2: Transitions To Vinyasa
To attend this course you must have completed The Yoga Factory Course 1. During this 4 week course we will increase our practice attending twice a week. The Transitions to Vinyasa course will effectively introduce the student to Vinyasa, which simply put refers to a flowing sequence of asana (postures) linked by breath and intention. Each week we will introduce new asana and begin to understand sequencing.
Course 3: Spiritual Warrior
To attend this course you must have completed The Yoga Factory Courses 1 and 2. During this course we will increase our attendance to 3 times a week. This is a brisk, guided, led vinyasa class in which the teacher calls out the asanas and provides the breath count, but gives minimal instruction as to how to do the various asanas. The class offers a well-rounded practice as a set sequence that includes a warm-up, the setting of an elevated intention, surya namaskar, standing asanas, twists, balances, backward bending, forward bending and inversions, as well as meditation and relaxation, and is designed to be completed in one hour.
