The Jivamukti Beginners class at Svaha Yoga Amsterdam is perfect if you want to get into the Jivamukti yoga flow right here in Amsterdam, but aren't ready for a Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior or a Jivamukti Open Class just yet. This beginners class slows Jivamukti yoga down and brings it back to basics. The strong focus on alignment and matching breath to movement will give you a strong basis to continue your Jivamukti yoga practice.

Jivamukti yoga is a style of Vinyasa yoga that's very alike to what we teach ourselves. Not surprisingly, this is where our founders first got in touch with yoga. Jivamukti yoga originated in NYC in the 80's and combines all four paths of yoga into a Vinyasa flow. With it’s strong emphasis on activism and a clear idea of what good practice is, Jivamukti yoga still has a very distinct Big-Apple-vibe to it. Then again, it has spread all over the world and is currently one of the most well-known types of Vinyasa yoga in the West.
