Descriptions

 

Friday June 9th:

18:00-20:00

Hatha Yoga Pradipika

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is a text that many of us are familiar with even though we may not be aware of it. Practices like kapalbhati (sharp exhales through the nose)or asanas like virasana (hero) or mayurasana (peacock) are explained along with Kriya (cleansing) Mudra (energetic seals using the body) and Nada Yoga, the yoga of sound. We will explore each of these areas while delving into the contemporary practical application of timeless teachings complied hundreds of years ago.

Open to all levels

Asana, Chanting, Mediation

 

Saturday June 10th:

10.00-12.30

Jivamukti Yoga  Master Class

Working toward mastery requires patience, balance, and skill. Any form of mastery begins with honing your aptitude as a student. This class is based from the Jivamukti Open Class and features skillful sequencing for complex/peak poses. It is geared toward advance pracitioners and those who are looking to challenge themselves.

Satsang:

Sat is “truth” and Ang is “limb” or “attachment.” Satsang is a gathering of like minded individuals who are interested in exploring “what is truth?” or “what is true?” from the Yogic perspective and teachings. In Satsang we will meditate, chant and discuss thoughts and ideas around yogic topics.

 

Sunday June 11th:

10:00-12:00

Warriors and Sages

The sanskrit name of an asana is non different from that being invoked by the sound made when voicing the name. Virasana, Virabhadrasana, Vashistasana, Ashtavakrasana are just some of the forms we take of warriors and sages. This class will delve into some of the stories behind these forms perhaps adding a new dimension to the sound and feeling of the asanas. Get ready to be a sweaty sage…or warrior…or both.

Open to all levels

Mostly Asana some chanting and meditation

 

Sunday June 11th:

17:00-19:00

Restorative Asanas

What is restored in a yoga practice? Is it balance, being at ease, comfortable in your own skin? Whether working with an injury or the refinement of subtle body movement in asana, this class will guide you through a few asanas for long holdings to use the physical body as a conduit to ease the mind as the incredible intelligence of our being does the rest.

Open to all levels

Asana, Chanting, Mediation

use of blankets, bolsters, and props

 

BIO: About Jules

Jules Febre was born and raised in a section of New York City known as the Lower East Side. At the age of 13, Jules spent three months in India; two of which were spent in Mysore studying Ashtanga Yoga with Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. During that time he was invited to share satsang with Swami Nirmalananda and Shyam Das, two radical yogis that have each contributed greatly to the progression of yoga in the West. At the age of 16 Jules began working at the Jivamukti Yoga School helping to clean, and is now considered one of the leading teachers of the Jivamukti Yoga method, teaching the method world wide as well as facilitating at the very highly regarded teacher training programs.

Jules travels and teaches for a major part of each year, including Europe, Australia, Asia, and more. His classes offer a wide range and depth of understanding of Yoga Asana as well as Meditation, Chanting, and Yoga Philosophy.

Teaching yoga is Jules’ passion. He is grateful to his teachers, Sharonji (Gannon), Davidji (Life) who he has had the privilege of studying with for over 15 years, for igniting his devotion to the Jivamukti Yoga practice and for inspiring countless students around the world.
