3 Rivers: A Jivamukti Yoga Workshop on the Subtle Body, with Monja Mani & Tamar Samir
Sunday, Oct 26, 1:30-4:00pm
Pure Yoga West, NYC

$25 for Pure Yoga members/$35 for non members

Join Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teachers Monja Mani & Tamar Samir for a 3-hour workshop on the yogic practices that clear the subtle body’s channels and move energy upward. Learn the anatomy of your subtle body; the specific function of the right and left channels; how they are affected by asana, mantra and breath practices. The anatomy of the subtle body is the grid underlying the movement in this workshop. Expect all the elements of Jivamukti that you love: a mix of intense, intelligent vinyasa, uplifting sounds, pranayama, chanting, and meditation.
At a time when many people feel disconnected from themselves and others, this conscious practice can heal your body and free your heart to move into the future with joy.

The sacred confluence of three holy rivers: Ganga, Yamuna, and the mythical underground river Saraswati, is considered an auspicious pilgrimage site in India. The ancient yogic text Hatha Yoga Pradipika compares the geographical intersection of these rivers with the anatomy of the subtle body. This (not so subtle) code is telling us that the intersection of three channels in our own bodies is worth exploring. The energy channels, called nadis, conduct life force energy to the crown. When energy can move freely to the crown of the head, we reside in our true nature. When the channels are blocked, the movement of energy is impeded and we are blocked from being our best selves.

Hot, Hip & Holy – an extended Jivamukti Yoga Class

with Nora Heilmann & Tamar Samir
Saturday, November 29, 2014. 11am-1pm.
Studio Naim, Tel Aviv

Fun sequences distinct to the Jivamukti Yoga method will warm you up and keep you cooking! Come prepared for an upbeat session with great music that uplifts and inspires you to realize your highest potential. This is classic Jivamukti: original, sequential, infused with spirit, and a little wild. All levels welcome.

About Nora & Tamar:
Nora and Tamar are partners in yoga and life. They are Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teachers based in New York. They teach at the Jivamukti Yoga flagship center in Union Square. Tamar is originally from Israel, and Nora originally from Germany. Tamar and Nora love to share the magical art of yoga. They believe that by means of play and creativity we can re-awaken our connection to other human and non-human animals, mother nature, and life itself; and reveal yoga as an art of peaceful coexistence. Nora is currently exploring nada yoga (the yoga of sound) by studying the didgeridoo, an exciting journey into pure vibration! Tamar serves as a mentor in the Jivamukti Yoga Apprenticeship program (500-hr training for Jivamukti Yoga teachers).
