Jivamukti Yoga Weekend with Lady Ruth
Stavanger, 9.-11. March 2018

We are so delighted and honoured to once again welcome Senior Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher Ruth Lauer-Manenti from New York.

Ruth – by her students and fans affectionately called ‘Lady Ruth’ because of her immense commitment and love – is one of the most experienced yoga teachers within the Jivamukti Yoga method. She has studied close with the founders, Sharon Gannon and David Life, for almost three decades, and she is also an acclaimed writer and artist.

This is Lady Ruth’s third visit to us since the first visit in 2008. Don’t miss out on this chance to practice Jivamukti Yoga with a true master – the ‘real deal’ so to say…

Program:

Friday March 9th

17:00 – 19:00 Jivamukti Open extended class – drop in.

Saturday March 10th

10:30 – 13:00 Jivamukti Yoga Workshop
Slow moving Jivamukti vinyasa style with emphasis on alignment, mindful movements and transitions, breath awareness, and working within a quiet focused atmosphere. Challenging and safe for all levels.

14:30 -16.00 Lecture Bhagavad Gita
Trying to have a problem free lift is unrealistic, and it is not the way of yoga. Also, if you want to solve your problems before deepening your yoga practice, you’ll wait a long time. Therefore, using our problems to bring out the best in ourselves is the way of the spiritual practitioner.

In the Bhagavad Gita we are given a list of qualities or attitudes (the gunas) that lead to peace of mind, and can be cultivated throughout the ups and downs of life.

For a discussion on these attitudes as well as singing the verses from the Gita text please attend this lecture.
Open to all levels.

Sunday March 11th

10:30 – 13:00 Jivamukti Yoga Workshop
Slow moving Jivamukti vinyasa style with emphasis on alignment, mindful movements and transitions, breath awareness, and working within a quiet focused atmosphere. Challenging and safe for all levels.

14:30 – 16:00 Restorative Yoga Class
A gentle practice that will leave you feeling uplifted and relaxed. You will hold poses for longer, often with the use of props and relax into a pose in order to release parts of the body that hold emotional and physical tension.

Weekend Theme
For an in depth look at the 3 sutras in Maharishi Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra on asana, and an in depth asana practice, please attend this weekend mini retreat.  Asanas are sometimes referred to as exercise or the physical part of a yoga practice. But when asanas are placed, understood and practiced with a spiritual context the results include the physical but extend into emotional, mental, intellectual and spiritual well being.

Workshops will be slow moving Jivamukti vinyasa style with emphasis on alignment, mindful movements and transitions, breath awareness, and working within a quiet focused atmosphere. Challenging and safe for all levels.
