Full Description

The following is only a taste of what will be given. Beyond this we will delve into bhakti yoga, swara yoga, tantra yoga, kundalini yoga, pranayama and painting yantras.

The Yoga Jungle Sequence (Earth Yoga) is better suited to a warm environment of temperatures between 30 to 37 degrees Celsius with a humidity of up to 50%. This simply allows our body to open up faster and allows our heart rate to increase which thus improves our overall circulation of blood flow through the body. The yoga sequence is designed to strengthen, lengthen and open up the body in a safe logical way. This yoga practice will also work without the heat and you will need to breathe deeper into your body continuously to generate more heat. The heat (Hot Yoga) allows beginners to easily receive the benefits of a well circulated system within the body so you may simply feel strong, healthy and connected to your body. YogiJungle provides a system for cleaning out the body from the toxins of todays extreme lifestyle with or without the need for external heat to be used in the yoga setting. With Yin yoga the focus will be on hip openers and revitalizing the muscles and joints. The Yin Yoga sequence (Earth Yoga - Air) is designed for all ages and is a nice antidote to a long stressful day or as a complement to any Hatha Yoga exercise. All of the above methods with work with Prana or the life force breath and as such we will always begin with some form of yogi pranayama techniques that have been taught from numerous Masters.

Yoga Jungle Goal

The goal is to find the middle between extremes, once we do that we can perform the postures with ease and joy.

Open to grace is the first principle of Anusara Yoga. This stems from the belief that we are more than just our physical body and mind. That everything is made out of the same energy, the whole of existence: you, me, nature and the streets. That everything is one thing. Opening to grace during yoga is connecting and aligning ourself to this energy, that is bigger than us. That energy that intrinsically is us, the space in which everything appears and that what appears in it.
