Kevin Jones provides Jivamukti Yoga Open Level, Spiritual Warrior (fixed sequence) & Fundamentals/Basics classes as well as Pilates & Masterclasses/Workshops in the local area of Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Jivamukti is a holistic & integrated yoga practice which helps to combine both the physical & spiritual aspects of yoga, whilst encouraging practitioners to take their yoga off the mat & into the world.
Jivamukti Yoga classes centre on a theme based on a globally-set "Focus of the Month" essay. The theme is often explored through "dharma talks", Sanskrit chanting, reflections on the modern relevance of yoga scripture, music, asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), & meditation. The largest portion of most classes consists of asana practiced as vinyasa. In vinyasa (movement synchronised with breath & intention) the teacher guides the student through a vigorous sequence of postures. The exact sequence is left to the discretion of the teacher, but always includes standing, balancing, forward bending, back bending, twists & inversions (such as headstand & shoulderstand). During the vinyasa phase, the teacher may assist practitioners with [optional] hands-on assists. The class concludes with a period of deep relaxation & meditation.
