In German language, at Jivamukti Yoga Berlin (Mitte)
In June 2020, Jivamukti Yoga Berlin is very happy to already present its 9th Jivamukti Yoga Immersion. The JYB Jivamukti Immersions have always been quite popular because they come with a rather intensive program in a very nice setting and city. And a well-rehearsed team: International Jivamukti Yoga Ambassador Yogeswari will be re-joined by Jivamukti Yoga Berlin director Anja Kühnel just a year and a half after they co-taught the Jivamukti Teacher Training in Germany. Do not miss this great opportunity to delve deeper into the practices of the Jivamukti Yoga method in three intensive days and get a “sample taste“ of how “The Gold Standard of teacher trainings“ (Time Out, NYC) really works.
WHAT IS A JIVAMUKTI IMMERSION?
A Jivamukti Yoga Immersion takes the student deeper into the study of Jivamukti Yoga and its five tenets: Ahimsa, Scripture, Meditation, Nada and Bhakti, as well as Asana. Jivamukti’s passionate focus on the original meaning of the Sanskrit word “asana”—as seat, connection, relationship to the earth—is as practical as it is radical during this time of global crisis and consciousness shift. The Immersion is perfect for those wishing to delve into the practical and mystical practices of Jivamukti Yoga. A Jivamukti Immersion 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. Because of the world-wide popularity of Jivamukti Yoga, Immersions attract students from all over the world, enabling you to meet new friends from many diverse places, building stronger yoga communities locally and globally.
WHO CAN/SHOULD ATTEND A JIVAMUKTI YOGA IMMERSION?
Anyone interested in the Jivamukti method (new students welcome) + Anyone who already practices the method and seeks a residential immersion experience + Anyone who might be interested in taking the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training Course, but would like to experience a more relaxed “sample-taste” first or wants to prepare for the actual training + Anyone who wants to meet other yogis from around the world + Alumni from previous Jivamukti Teacher Trainings who want to experience a reunion with other teachers and refresh their skills + Yoga teachers from other disciplines and styles who wish to expand their experiential knowledge of other forms of yoga and gain continuing education credits.
WHAT PROGRAM CAN YOU EXPECT?
The Jivamuti Immersion program draws directly from the Jivamukti Teacher Training Program, the “Gold Standard of teacher trainings” (Time Out, NYC), which means that the facilitators of this Jivamukti Yoga Immersion will teach parts from the Teacher Training schedule in its most up-to date version but in a more relaxed and less formal way that leaves more room to dive deep into the teachings, enjox and relax. For the Berlin Immersions, we always compile a quite special and rather intensive program which usually is one of the most extensive and comprehensive programs of the year. In addition to intensive asana classes and workshops, you will benefit from asana and teaching skills practicals, lectures on yoga philosophy and theory, meditations, statsang and kirtan. The 2020 Berlin Immersion will provide you with invaluable tools that help you on the yogic path as a yoga student as well as a (current or future) yoga teacher (Jivamukti Yoga or other tradition alike).
