MEDITATION & YOGA PHILOSOPHY
Bringing modern interpretation to the timeless wisdom of Yoga, join Maria on Thursday evenings to discover the origins and different perspectives on this sacred practice. Drawing from the Jivamukti Method, using ancient texts such as The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Bhagavad Gita, and The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, this class offers invaluable insight into Yoga philosophy. Looking at everything from different lineages and styles explained, key sources of wisdom and knowledge, chanting, meditation, and some basic asana. Be prepared to go deeper into the meaning and relevance behind the various aspects of the Yoga practice.
Traditionally, yoga was taught one-on-one. Nowadays, yoga is mostly taught in group classes. The Jivamukti Yoga In-Class-Private (ICP) is a unique way to experience both methods of teachings simultaneously: the student and his/her private certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher together attend a group class. From the beginning till the very end of class, the student is guided in each and every movement through minor or major hands-on physical & energetic assists. ICP’s can lead to wonderful breakthroughs in one’s practice. They are the ultimate Jivamukti experience!
Private yoga classes are tailored to fit the exact needs of the student. It is the best way to deal with specific questions regarding your own practice, diet, yoga philosophy, breathing techniques & more. It is also the perfect way to design a personalized yoga routine just for you whether you are a beginner or more experienced practitioner. Private sessions (SESH) are held at Yoga Souk Beirut.
