Class Descriptions

 

Jamuna Yoga classes include setting selfless intention, use of props and walls, detailed alignment cues, diverse playlists, meditation, shavasana, Ujjaiyi breath, pranayama and kriyas, and techniques from other movement and fitness traditions. Sequences are carefully and safely crafted according to either a peak pose, asanas linked by a theme, a particular bodily region, or by the seven chakras; creating a transformative experience that touches on all physical and energetic systems in the body. Classes are distilled from classical yoga teachings, made compassionate and approachable for the modern student. Jenna offers sensitive, intuitive and energetic hands-on assists throughout the practice for those open to receiving them. 

Yoga is a radical movement for profound transformation,
and not for the faint of heart!

Ahimsa

Why do we assume animal forms in yoga? Discover yourself in Ahimsa, through connection to the earth and animals. Take flight, roam free, merge into the ocean, embody your primal consciousness in this animal inspired practice. Animal consciousness dissolves the boundaries between humans and nature. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to take this class, or to awaken to compassion for all beings. Expect a dynamic vinyasa practice and an inspiring, animal conscious message. [Ahimsa=non-violence]
