Geelong Yoga Classes
This is a 5-week course that slowly and steadily builds your strength, flexibility and yoga knowledge.
At the completion of the course you will be ready to join in all our other classes.
With the popularity of our 5 week beginners course, we now have 3 courses available – Monday 7:30pm, Tuesday 9:30am, and Wednesday 7.30pm. Students from all 3 courses are welcome to attend our Saturday 10am catch up class. Class sizes are limited to 15 students.
Whether you’re a beginner, working out the difference between vrksasana (tree) and sirshasana (headstand) or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you.
All Open classes include asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher.
The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to attend our Absolute Beginners course or a Jivamukti Gentle class.
Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have an hour to practice. 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.
These classes include all of the elements of our Open classes, just presented a little slower and a little more gently.
Modifications are given to keep your practice steady and joyful.
Carer & Kids
A gentle yoga class, (suitable for beginners) where children of all ages are welcome to join in, roam, sleep or hang out with our Qualified Early Childhood Educator.
Other Yoga Classes We Offer Are:
A slow paced class where poses are held for longer periods of time stimulate and nourish the major energetic channels of the body. Yin yoga targets the fascia, connective tissues, ligaments, bones and tendons of the body. The classes are deeply restorative and restful.
Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic, physically demanding practice which synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga literally means “eight-limbs” and by practicing each of the limbs, the body and mind are cleansed of impurities.
Kundalini Yoga is an uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices which incorporate movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras.
Classes include special Kundalini Kriyas, which are specific breath techniques, postures and mantras that help you to remove energetic blocks that prevent the smooth flow of energy and circulation through your body.
Kundalini classes are held every second Friday of every month at 7.30pm.
The study of yoga originated as a 1-on-1 dialogue between teacher and student. Yoga Dojo honors that tradition with excellence in private yoga classes.
Whether you are completely new to yoga or an advanced practitioner, a Jivamukti private class is specifically tailored to fit your needs. In the guiding hands of a Certified Jivamukti Teacher, you can work toward opening to a deeper and more fulfilling practice.
Private classes are tailored to your individual needs, so beginners can work on the fundamentals and more experienced students can work on specific aspects of their practice.
