Jivamukti Yoga Weekend
with Sandy King and Sas Stevenson
I am so so happy and honoured to be able to welcome Sandy King and Sas Stevenson to Aarhus and Boho Yoga for a weekend of fun, sweat and sweet surrender. This weekend is a rare and precious opportunity for you to dive into the magical universe of Jivamukti Yoga. Expand your knowledge, gain insights and move your body under the guidance of not only one but TWO Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teachers - coming all the way from Australia to Aarhus!
Friday 16th August
16.30-18.00 Jivamukti Open Class with Sandy King and Sas Stephenson
Jivamukti is a physically demanding and intellectually stimulating practice that incorporates chanting, yoga philosophy, social and environmental awareness and activism, hands-on-assists, meditation and breath awareness, all set to a carefully curated musical soundtrack. The Jivamukti method is holistic in its spiritual approach and has been commended for making traditional yogic teachings relevant and interesting in a modern context. An Open Class is a fantastic way to classically experience the Jivamukti Method.
18.30-19.30 Satsang/Kirtan with Sandy and Sas – by donation for Dyrenes Frie Farm (animal charity)
Satsang is an opportunity for a community of like-minded individuals to gather together and share stories, listen to teachings and sit in quiet reflection. Kirtan is the name given to traditional Indian folk music with a call-and-response structure. Devotional Sanskrit mantras will be discussed and chanted, to bring about the “bhav” – the divine mood. Everyone is welcome.
Saturday 17th August
10.00-12.00 Jivamukti Open Masterclass with Sandy
An extended version of a classic Jivamukti Open Class; this two hour practice will begin with chanting and an inspirational dharma talk based upon yogic philosophy, which will lead into intention setting, and will then progress into a challenging asana sequence that threads back into the theme of the overall practice. A musical soundtrack will be played to add to the atmosphere, hands-on-assists will provide physical and energetic guidance throughout and the practice will conclude with deep relaxation and meditation.
13.00-16.00 Teachers Workshop with Sandy, assisted by Sas
Using the morning Masterclass as a template, this Teachers Workshop will offer a behind-the-scenes view into the Jivamukti Yoga Method, and will explain the process gone through to create the sequence of preparing the body for more challenging asanas, including how to give hands-on-assists and use your voice as a teacher. There will be a large practical component in this class, and it is recommended for Yoga Teachers of any method, who are looking to deepen their understanding or refresh their teaching toolkit. A portion of the workshop will also be set aside for asking questions related to teaching, sequencing and philosophy.
Note: This class is only available to those who attend the morning Masterclass.
Sunday 18th August
10.00-11.30 Morning Restorative with Sas
We live in a world that is very focused on activity and productivity. Coupled with the digital age of always being “on” and “available” via our phones, ipads and laptops; many of us find it very hard to switch off and unwind. Restorative Yoga is the antidote to this, and utilises few, simple asanas, generously supported by props, to encourage the parasympathetic nervous system (our in-built “relax response”) to come forth. This practice is suitable for anyone and everyone and is especially recommended for those who are tired and in need of rest. No prior yoga experience necessary at all (bring your mum!).
About Sandy and Sas
Sandy and Sas are two of the primary teachers at Jivamukti Yoga Sydney. They are both Advanced Certified in the method and have taught multiple classes, workshops and intensives together and separately around the world. This will be their 4th visit back to teach in Denmark, and their first time teaching in Århus. While Sas works by day in the scientific field of marine biology, Sandy is a full-time yoga teacher who mentors new teachers through the Jivamukti Apprenticeship program and will be serving on the International Jivamukti Teacher Training faculty in India 2020. Sandy was born in Denmark (actually in Aarhus!), and though the classes will be taught in English, Sandy speaks Danish fluently, and can answer questions in either language as needed. As individuals, and as a couple, Sandy and Sas believe in the power of compassion in action and hope to contribute, in some way, to the happiness and freedom for all beings everywhere.
