Jivamukti-Inspired Jam

Intermediate I
In this intermediate practice inspired by the Jivamukti yoga style, Jonni-Lyn guides you through a flow that engages your whole body, mind, and spirit. Note that while no equipment is strictly required, some practitioners may want a set of blocks to aid in some of the standing poses. Others may like a blanket on hand for savasana.

Thank you for another great class Jonni-Lyn. When you reminded us to not get caught up in the shapes, "they're just shapes", it really struck a chord with me as I am often down on myself for not being very flexible, for not being able to do certain poses, for not having a certain "shape" in other ways. This really helped me to put all that into perspective, to let go a little. Thank you.

I love Jonni-Lyn's calm, grounded and spiritual practices. This was a wonderful way to start my day and with the breath counts, my mind stayed focused. I also love her guided meditations to help stay centered. Thank you!

I really enjoyed this practice style. The longer holds combined the best parts of yin and flow! Thank you!

Hi Jonni-Lyn,

Thanks so much for this beautiful practice. What is the mantra that you say at the beginning and end of the practice? I would like to know the written version on it :)

लोकाः समस्ताः सुखिनोभवंतु ॥
lōkāḥ samastāḥ sukhinōbhavantu ॥
This phrase is from one of the Mangala Mantra Meaning: May all (samastāḥ) the worlds (lokāḥ) become (bhavantu) happy (sukhino).
This phrase is part of a prayer that may have originated from one of the Vedas- Rig Veda or Upnishad- Katha Upnishad. Both Vedas and Upnishads are ancient sscripture from Indian subcontinent. This phase may have been adopted by one of the dynasties in India as their mission statement as it has been found carved as on stones from Sangama Dynasty in 1300AD.

Hi Emily,
Thanks for asking and for our friend who replied! The chant is one of my favorites too. Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu in the Jivamukti Yoga tradition translates it as "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all." Its a good way to look at our practice, and really life, isn't it?
Warmly
Jonni-Lyn

I very much enjoyed this practice, although I do agree that the breath counts can be distracting. Great practice overall.

I found this a great full body opening practice after a busy week, feel renewed, stretched out and focussed. Thank you Jonni-Lyn!

Enjoyed this style and Jonni-Lyn's instructions, esp the intention at the beginning, the chanting, the variations.
Found the breath counts a bit too fast for my breath - hmmm.
But will revisit and bookmarked.
Hari OM!

I appreciate this kind of yoga, but I couldn't get past the counts for every breath in every hold. This may help some people for their focus, but I found it distracting. Maybe you could consider doing a combination and sometimes holding poses in silence.
