Yoga in a hammock, you will learn to use your core to assist you in various yoga postures. This will strengthen your core, work your upper body and give you a great happy feeling as you decompress your spin and hang upside down.
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL, at least 24 hours before class to guarantee a place. Class will be cancelled if less than 2 booked in 24 hours before.
Flow yoga, in which movement is synchronised to the breath, is used to allow you more movement. Postures are similar in these yoga classes. In a flow yoga class, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you flow from one pose to the next in time with an inhale or an exhale. Warm Flow can be very beneficial to your upper body strength.
Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have an hour to practice. The class is fast paced and invigorating and is certainly a “get-in-shape” class.
The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warm-up, chanting, setting of intention, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation.
The teacher focuses on keeping the pace moving and does not stop to give spiritual discourses. Since the asana sequence is always the same, a student will pick it up quite quickly after only a couple of classes.
In many Jivamukti Yoga Centers this class is also offered as the International Spiritual Warrior class, which is taught in languages other than the national language of the country while maintaining standard Sanskrit terminology, making it a wonderful language immersion experience. You could actually learn another language by taking this class regularly. Many yoga teachers find that they learn essential key terms in other languages to enable them to teach yoga in foreign countries. Spiritual Warrior and International Spiritual Warrior Classes are best for intermediate and advanced students, although beginners as well as anyone with a sense of adventure are welcome!
Spiritual Warrior classes are one hour in length and done in the heat.
