Jivamukti Happy Heart
Mantra/Chant: I Am Free
A beautiful mantra/chant. By doing a mantra, we are harmonising the mind/body subtle body, as well as it being a beautiful experience. Allow the intention of the mantra to bring you into harmony. Away from your busy day, away from your thoughts and into the heart centre. A wonderful practice for discovering your hearts' desire. The meaning behind this chant is 'I am free. I am eternity. I am consciousness. I am spaciousness. I am free.' Keep that intention in mind as you chant. This is a wonderful chant to do before your yoga practice .
Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior Flow
Beginning with the Magic 10 to start this classic Jivamukti yoga class. During the Magic 10, expect long counted holds and a handstand at the wall for those who are ready. During the counted long holds without further instruction, this is great for finding a more meditative state during your asana practice. We then continue with intention setting and the classic, well rounded Jivamukti vinyasa yoga practice, which includes headstand for those who can. You may need two blocks.
Playful Joint Isolation
A fun way to explore movement and joint isolation. Through visualisation and movement, play the game of organic joint mobility. Expect to learn a game that you can play to learn to isolate your joints, and you can do anytime, rather than playing right now with the video. Bring a sense of playfulness and willingness to do something completely different!

This class is perfect for those of us who need an antidote to time at a desk, or have stiff shoulders and upper back, and wonderful for new mums too. You will need two blocks.
