Jivamukti Yoga Immersion
with Emma Henry
Kick Your Asana
Deepen your understanding of the magical method of Jivamukti. In this playful Jivamukti master class, we turn the volume up and get deeper into the teachings from the focus of the month.
10.00 to 13.00 Ground control
Standing and balancing asanas are the building blocks of a yoga asana practice. They are associated with the first chakra - muladhara, located at the base of the spine.
Muladhara chakra corresponds to our relationships to our parents, family, home, career, money, environment, issues of survival and the element earth.
By Earth we mean all things, all manifestations of reality. Earth not only means the ground we walk on, the air we breathe, or the water we drink, but also all the beings-animals, plants, and minerals-that we come into contact with daily.
Yoga teaches us that everything is connected
According to Patanjali, the seat that you establish should be steady and joyful, in body as well as mind. The word asana, therefore, also describes the goal of this yoga practice, which is to consciously relate to all beings with steadiness and joy
Through this grounding practice, the body will become strong and articulate and the mind alert and focused, which is very helpful for the practitioner to become more conscious, finding inner balance and poise to stand on our own feet.
Lunch 13.00 to 14.30
14.30 to 17.30 Vinyasa Krama and the Art of Sequencing
We will look at the key components to a vinyasa practice which will give you the understanding of how to link one asana to another helping your own self practice as well as building effective and safe yoga sequences that represent your vision as a yoga teacher. Giving you the tools to be confident in dealing with a mixed level yoga class while meeting the needs of beginners and experienced students.
18.00 to 18.30 Kirtan and Satsang
9.30 to 10.00 Meditation
10.00 to 13.00 Spinal Tap
Twisting and rotating the spine requires great flexibility which let’s face it, gets harder as we get older. It is so important to keep the spine mobile and healthy.
Besides restoring your spine’s natural range of motion, the parivritta action opens the nadis (energy channels), deeply cleanses the organs and stimulates circulation bringing rejuvenation, clarity and balance into the body and the manipura chakra, helping to untwist the ego and mind.
Parivritta - The sanskrit term that refers to rotation in an asana, literally means to move around the central axis.
The word sukham or joyful in sanskrit can also be translated as good axel hole.
Which suggest we need a strong centre in which to rotate and twist from so that everything is spinning from a good, steady and easeful place.
Lunch 13.00 to 14.30
14.30-17.00 Asana Lab and Yoga Assists : Backbending
Welcome to our interactive asana problem-solving laboratory, based on the needs and wants of the attendees, exploring practical ways to achieve more flexibility, balance, safety and freedom with yoga assists and in-depth look at asana.
This workshop is for both teachers and practitioners who would like to deepen their understanding of asana, focusing on the basic techniques of applying safe and practical hands-on assists as well as verbal and energetic assistance. Through partner work and the exploration of asana we learn how to assist and support others while improving our own practice in the process.
