We are at it again, breaking new ground in the online yoga-sphere.
We are thrilled to announce that, for the first time ever, a Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior class has been filmed and made available online! We are incredibly excited and honored to be the first online yoga distributor to launch this amazing online yoga class and practice led by Vinyasa and Jivamukti trained yoga teacher, Hollie Sue Mann.
Hollie came to yoga in her teens and has consistently practiced since the late nineties. Growing up in the theater, she spent many hours singing and dancing, so her early years were marked by experiences using the body as an instrument of performance. Like many, she came to yoga hoping to gain more flexibility and strength. Over time, and after many years of working on a steady and joyful practice primarily comprised of asana, meditation, and service, she has come to a deeper understanding of yoga as a path to freedom and connection with all living creatures.
As a teacher, Hollie strives to help students better understand their own needs and how they might be of service to others. She guides a rigorous, dynamic asana practice, sustained by the breath, rad tunes, and high intention. Formally trained in the Jivamukti Method, she has also completed Allison Dennis’s Veda Vinyasa 200-hour course and is blessed to have many teachers in her life. Hollie is especially grateful to holy teachers David Life and Sharon Gannon – the creators of the Jivamukti Yoga method – as well as Yogeswari, Jeffrey Rama Cohen, Jules Febre, and Ruth Lauer-Manenti.
Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have an hour to hit the mat. The class is fast paced and invigorating and is certainly a “get-in-shape” class. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a Vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class, which includes asana warm-up, chanting, setting of intention, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation. The teacher focuses on keeping the pace moving and does not stop to give spiritual discourses. Since the asana sequence is always the same, a student will pick it up quite quickly after only a couple of classes.
In many Jivamukti Yoga Centers this class is also offered as the International Spiritual Warrior class, which is taught in languages other than the national language of the country while maintaining standard Sanskrit terminology, making it a wonderful language immersion experience. You could actually learn another language by taking this class regularly! Many yoga teachers find that they learn essential key terms in other languages to enable them to teach yoga in foreign countries. Spiritual Warrior and International Spiritual Warrior Classes are best for intermediate and advanced students, although beginners as well as anyone with a sense of adventure are welcome to try it out!
