A Jivamukti Open class is usually a 75-90 min class that includes the 5 tenets of Jivamukti Yoga (ahimsa, nada, shastra, dhyana, bhakti). This class tends to be a more vigorous but nourishing vinyasa practice in which the sequence changes from week to week. The time frame allows the room to explore inversions, creative sequencing, alignment, breath awareness, relaxation and meditation. Spiritual teachings are infused into the class based on the Focus Of The Month(a spiritually focused essay written every month by various Jivamukti Yoga teachers).
It is suggested to have knowledge of some yoga postures before attending this class due to the fast paced nature of the class and the fact that the teacher does not demonstrate the postures during this class. Instead, hands on adjustments are made through out the class in order for you to progress in your practice. That being said if you wish to NOT be adjusted for any reason please let the teacher know before hand.
