It’s a sequence creatively designed by the teacher, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing Vinyasa sequence, hand-on assists, and spiritual teachings, in which eclectic music plays an integral role.

It contains all the essential key elements of a classic Jivamukti Open class with the only difference that in the medium version, the classes are a bit slower in speed and a tad less difficult in terms of the practice. This means they are perfect for anyone who wants to progress step‐by‐step from the Jivamukti Basic/Fundamentals classes to our faster moving Jivamukti Open classes. Or for anyone who ‐ once in a while ‐ is looking for a bit slower, more detail-oriented Open class. And they are also ideal if you are already attending Open classes but want to work with greater depth on specific asanas or sequences to further refine your practice. A comprehensive exploration into the sequences taught in a classic Jivamukti Open class yet with more thorough explanations & instructions. A strong emphasis on balancing, inversions and unlocking the secrets to more “advanced” postures. With the use of wall and prop work, this is a great class to empower, connect, and challenge you. You’ll always leave feeling elevated and that you did more than you thought you could. And there is always the opportunity to ask questions during our Jivamukti Open (M) classes.

This is a softer version of our open class for students who want to “take it a little easier” or for less advanced practitioners.

Students are taught “how to do” the yoga pose properly and safely as well as how to use props.

Beginners are encouraged to take all four weeks of the Fundamentals course.

Intermediate and advanced students will also benefit from exploring the alignment essentials presented in these classes.

Each Jivamukti Fundamentals class is part of a four-week course that explores a different theme each week:

  • Week One: Standing Asanas (yoga postures)
  • Week Two: Forward Bending Asanas (yoga postures)
  • Week Three: Backward Bending Asanas (yoga postures)
  • Week Four: Inversions, Meditation and “Putting it All Together”

The Jivamukti method of meditation is a mantra form of meditation, instructed in three steps: choose your seat, be still and focus. The practitioner is instructed to align the silent repetition of the mantra with the incoming and out-going breath.
