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.

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.

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!
