This full, well-rounded Jivamukti yoga class is a vinyasa flow which is a full-body and mind stretch focusing on the neck and shoulders. This class is designed to lengthen the space of the neck and shoulders, an area which suffers so much for most of us in this modern life. Enjoy some delicious neck and shoulder stretching amidst a flowing Jivamukti flow class.
Yin for Ankles, Knees and Hips

Use this class to regain mobility in your feet and ankles and nourish your knees and hips. Yin yoga involves long holding of the poses; stay so long as you are comfortable but, as ever, if you feel any discomfort, do come out of the pose. You will need a block.

Your Intelligent Body for Beginners: The Back
First in Your Intelligent Body Series: a sequence designed for beginners and those with inflexible spines to open up their back body - great for those with tight hamstrings, tight upper back or shoulders. This may work for those new to yoga, but also if you're an athlete or spend the day desk-bound. We recommend that you practice this sequence every day until you feel more freedom and release in your spine. You will need a couple of blocks, blankets or cushions and a chair/sofa handy.
