My classes integrate both physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of yoga into modern lifestyle without losing sight of the ancient and universal goal of the practice—liberation.
I did my teacher training in June 2018 in Costa Rica and practice Jivamutki Yoga since 2008. I am also a big fan of Vipassana Meditation technique. My personal goal is to inspire and motivate students to live an empowered life in truth, with compassion and non-judgement and by integrating yoga into their lifestyle to make this world a more joyful, more peaceful and more loving place.
In my English classes, I welcome you and all our international students as well as our German students who want to practice in an even more diverse and international setting!
Whether you're a beginner or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels. You work at your own pace, following the teacher's verbal as well as hands-on guidance. Asana options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.
A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (kindness), nada (music) and dhyana (meditation) by presenting classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation.
All Open classes include 14 points—asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role: you might practice to a shifting soundtrack of ragas, global trance, hip-hop, spoken word, George Harrison, Sting, Krishna Das, Donna de Lory, Michael Franti, Bill Laswell, Alice Coltrane and Mozart. The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to attend a Basic or Medium class.
See you on the mat!
