Āsana options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. An Open Class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands on assistance, relaxation and meditation. All Open classes include a well-rounded sequence creatively designed by Jules. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role.
Open to all levels.
$25 + tax
Saturday, November 2nd, 2019, 2:00-4:30pm — Warriors and Sages
The Sanskrit name of an āsana is non different from that being invoked by the sound made when voicing the name. Vīrāsana, Vīrabhadrāsana, Vasiṣṭhāsana, Aṣṭāvakrāsana are just some of the forms we take of warriors and sages. This class will delve into some of the stories behind these forms perhaps adding a new dimension to the sound and feeling of the āsana. Get ready to be a sweaty sage… or warrior… or both.
Open to all levels.
Mostly āsana, some chanting and meditation.
$60 + tax ($55 + tax by October 26th)
Sunday, November 3rd, 2019, 2:00-4:30pm — Bird Poses
A Jivamukti vinyasa warm-up prepares us for several potent āsanas, chosen for their ability to inspire compassion for winged beings. We’ll review Eagle, Peacock, Crow, Crane, and Pigeon, and see how assuming the vibrational essence of another being helps awareness grow.
Vigorous and open to all.
$60 + tax ($55 + tax by October 27th)
$135 + tax ($108 + tax by October 25th)
Jules Febre was born and raised in a section of New York City known as the Lower East Side. At the age of 13, Jules spent three months in India; two of which were spent in Mysore studying Ashtanga Yoga with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. During that time he was invited to share satsang with Swami Nirmalananda and Shyam Das, two radical yogis that have each contributed greatly to the progression of yoga in the West. At the age of 16 Jules began working at the Jivamukti Yoga School helping to clean, and is now considered one of the leading teachers of the Jivamukti Yoga method, teaching the method worldwide as well as facilitating at the very highly regarded teacher training programs.
Jules travels and teaches for a major part of each year, including Europe, Australia, Asia, and more. His classes offer a wide range and depth of understanding of Yoga Āsana as well as Meditation, Chanting, and Yoga Philosophy.
Teaching yoga is Jules’ passion. He is grateful to his teachers, Sharonji (Gannon), Davidji (Life) who he has had the privilege of studying with for over 15 years, for igniting his devotion to the Jivamukti Yoga practice and for inspiring countless students around the world.
“Much of our time is spent in a virtual world of computers, phones and many other automated transactions. We are always choosing how to spend our time, which shapes our lives. The power of coming together, of sharing ideas, insights and practicing āsana lends one to become more receptive. As we undertake this journey, we may do so together and thus together we come to realize the vastness of our existence.”—Jules Febre
