Join us as we proudly present another full Jivamukti Immersion™ experience in conjunction with Jivamukti Yoga NYC, hosted by one of the UK’s leading Jiva teachers Emma Henry and our own favourite, Advanced Jivamukti teacher Andrea K.. Last years event was a complete roadblock so book your space early!
The Jivamukti Immersion™ experience is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the deeper teachings of the Jivamukti Yoga method. The workshops are drawn from the one month, 300-hour Jivamukti Yoga teacher training course, but presented in a more relaxed way with plenty of time to enjoy and reflect. The Immersion is perfect for those wishing to delve deeper into the practical and mystical practices of Jivamukti Yoga. It also provides great opportunities to make breakthroughs in asana practice, detox your body/heart/mind, and more deeply integrate your individual self with the greater reality.

Hot Hip and Holy
We will heat you up and work you hard in this funky detoxifying Jivamukti master class that will lead you on a voyage of Self discovery fuelled with love, laughter and devotion. From the ancient teachings from Master Patanjali we take the core teachings of yoga and make them accessible and relevant to how we live in the world today. Get hot, hip and holy with advanced Jivamukti teachers, Emma and Andrea.
Standing and balancing asanas are the building blocks of a yoga asana practice. They are associated with the first chakra – muladhara, located at the base of the spine. Muladhara chakra corresponds to our relationships to our parents, family, home, career, money, environment, issues of survival and the element earth.
By Earth we mean all things, all manifestations of reality. Earth not only means the ground we walk on, the air we breathe, or the water we drink, but also all the beings-animals, plants, and minerals-that we come into contact with daily.
Yoga teaches us that everything is connected
According to Patanjali, the seat that you establish should be steady and joyful, in body as well as mind. The word asana, therefore, also describes the goal of this yoga practice, which is to consciously relate to all beings with steadiness and joy
Through this grounding practice, the body will become strong and articulate and the mind alert and focused, which is very helpful for the practitioner to become more conscious, finding inner balance and poise to stand on our own feet.
Vinyasa Krama, feeling present in the ebb and flow of life
Learning only static postures does not reveal the incredible potential of asana.
When individual asanas are linked together correctly in a sequence, the result is a physiological mantram, a fleshy vortex of intersecting rivers of everything. The word vinyasa means “a joining or linking mechanism.” Krama means “the process”; it refers to the succession of changes that occurs from moment to moment. Vinyasa krama means the succession of changes undertaken with a single pointed intention, free from fluctuation.
Most people are not conscious of their intention from moment to moment. Details fill their lives, but the casual thread of the vinyasa remains elusive. They may often find themselves in situations wondering, “How did I get into this one?” When we establish a conscious intention and teach ourselves how to remain aligned with that intention, no matter how much we are dissuaded or distracted by the external world, the process unfolds as it should.
In this workshop we will look at the key components to a vinyasa practice which will give you the understanding of how to link one asana to another helping your own self practice as well as building effective and safe yoga sequences.
