As a facilitator of Jivamukti teacher trainings, Yogeswari is a seasoned lecturer on Yoga philosophy. Her gift is the ability to explain highly esoteric teachings with a clear structure and in a language that makes them tangible and inspiring even for beginners. Themes of lectures could be on: What is Jivamukti Yoga?, Ahimsa, the Practice of Non Violence and the Meaning of a Compassionate Lifestyle, Basic Yoga Philosophy, The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Seven Bhumikas of Yoga Vasishtha and Karma. She also offers a lecture on Chakra theory, which is connected to Sharon Gannon’s Chakra Tuning class, for practical application.
Generally, workshops are taught in 3-hour segments on a week-end, starting Friday evening, and continuing Saturday and Sunday, either in the morning only, or morning and afternoon. A workshop week-end has an overarching psycho-spiritual theme, based on one or several of the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga. Each segment has a specific Asana focus, that is deepened by a purposeful organization of Asana sequences, demonstration, commentary, props, and/or partner work.
Immerse yourself in a dance-like Vinyasa Practice, accompanied by Hip Indian beats, World Music and Sanskrit mantras. A specific Asana focus leads the practice, to challenge you physically and mentally, concluding with a deep relaxation and meditation practice. The spiritual teachings, woven throughout the class, are inspired by the current Jivamukti Focus of the Month. They reveal a strong relationship between ancient Yogic teachings, what is happening in the present moment on the mat, and concerns pertaining to relationships and experiences in modern, daily life.
The masterclasses are open for everybody and the only difference is, that the classes are thaught by a highly experienced senior teacher. These classes takes a little more time (between 120-150 minutes) than normal openclasses.
These classes are called Open, because they are suitable to all levels of practitioners. Students work at their own pace, following the teacher’s verbal as well as hands-on guidance. Asana options are provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Open classes incorporate the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga (scripture, devotion, non-violence, sound and meditation), by presenting classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat. Asana, as the core practice, is supported by teachings from the Focus of the Month essay, chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. Exuberant, eclectic music and spoken word play an integral role in completing the collage of different elements to a harmonious feeling of completion. This class is dynamic, and there will not be too many “how to” descriptions, that would cause the flow of the class to be broken. The duration of an Open Class is 90-95 Minutes
Provide beginners and seasoned practitioners with a deeper investigation into the basics that underlie the alignment of Asanas, as well as other practices that are found in an Open level class. The emphasis, here, is on alignment principles of the different Asana groups (Standing Poses, Forward Bends& Twists, Backbends, Inversions), as well as Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) and basic Pranayama (general breath awareness and Ujjayi breathing. The duration normally is 90-95 minutes, but can be longer.
