Introduction to Jivamukti - The ‘Wild Child’ of Yoga
With Nicole Heller
In this 2 hour workshop, Nicole will lead you through a typical Jivamukti Yoga class that includes Vinyasa (flowing meditation). The class will be broken down into the 5 characteristic elements of Jivamukti Yoga: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (non-violence, non-harming), nāda (music/sound), and dhyana (meditation). There will be time to ask questions.
