Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterised by linking breath and movement together to create a flowing sequence of asanas with a fluid transition.

Vinyasa classes can vary in style, pace and intensity and each teacher can interpret vinyasa yoga in a different way but you can expect to link breath with fluid movements during a vinyasa class.

Seasonal Vinyasa

Seasonal Vinyasa is a style of dynamic Yoga practice which is designed to align you with the changing energies of nature and the seasons. Students can expect to move and sweat while connecting body and breath in a fun and dynamic class that changes its flow each season. Within the seasonal yoga calendar, the year is broken down into six separate segments, Spring, early summer, Summer, late summer, Autumn and Winter.

Approximately every six weeks our yoga practice will flow from one season to the next allowing each student enough time to become familiar with a flow sequence without the classes becoming repetitive.

Gentle Seasonal Vinyasa Flow

This class is great for those who are looking for a slower paced vinyasa with the aim of a more gentle yoga experience.

This class creates an opportunity for students to really connect to their breath through a flow of gentle yoga postures. A Gentle Vinyasa Flow class is just like a regular Vinyasa class but slowed down a bit.

This class is perfect for beginners, long days or just for giving yourself a little more space to deepen familiar postures in a more forgiving way. You still need to be prepared to move and flow between postures but expect a more gentle experience.

Level 1-2

Jivamukti

The Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels. Asana options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. 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 Beginner Vinyasa Class.

An Open class presents 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. A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga:

  • shastra (scripture)

  • bhakti (devotion)

  • ahimsa (kindness)

  • nada (music)

  • dhyana (meditation)

Vinyasa par saison

 Le Seasonal Vinyasa est conçu pour vous aligner avec les énergies changeantes de la nature et des saisons. Les élèves peuvent s'attendre à bouger et à transpirer tout en connectant leurs mouvements à leur respiration dans un cours dynamique qui change son rythme à chaque saison. 

 Dans le calendrier saisonnier du yoga, l'année est divisée en six segments distincts : Printemps, début de l'été, été, fin de l'été, automne et hiver. 

Toutes les six semaines, notre pratique évolue d’une saison à une autre  pour tendre vers un style très proche du Ashtanga Yoga en été et du Yin Yoga en hiver.

Ce rythme donne à chaque élève suffisamment de temps pour se familiariser avec une séquence sans que les cours ne deviennent répétitifs.

 Les postures sont expliquées par étapes et des modifications sont proposées, permettant à chaque élève, quelque soit son niveau, d’y trouve son compte. Chaque cours se termine par des exercices de respiration (Pranayama) et de relaxation. 

 Niveau 1-2
