This is Lighthouse Yoga School’s signature open level vinyasa class. JM Vinyasa blends many styles of yoga such as Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar, Forrest, and Dharma yoga. The practice aims to bridge gaps in yoga traditions, allowing practitioners to learn from all styles and not just one. Every class includes pranayama, standing postures, hip openers, backbends, forward bends, twists, and inversions. Most classes include chanting, kriyas, or meditation.
Open Level Open level classes are suitable for all levels of practitioner, however we suggest that beginner students have some familiarity with the Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara A + B). The pacing and postures may feel challenging, but students are not at all required to have mastered any difficult poses for this class— this is the class where you will learn how to approach them, and build strength and stamina along the way. We invite you to try these classes with an open mind and playful attitude that will support your progress and growth without feeling the pressure for perfection.
