  • In Jivamukti, one can expect uplifting music, breath awareness, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation, meditation, and yoga teachings relevant to one’s life on and off the mat. A typical Jivamukti class is a vigorous vinyasa class that incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (kindness), nada (music), and dhyana (meditation). Come experience the only Jivamukti class in Wilmington! All levels are welcome, as there will be modifications, specific alignment cues, and options offered throughout class. It is recommended that brand new yogis partake in beginner or basic classes before joining an open-level class.

Have you heard yourself or someone else say, "Yoga is just not for me" or "I will never be able to do that pose?" The truth is that yoga is INCLUSIVE! The different practices can truly be done for every BODY, no matter the physical circumstances and realities we might face, including disease, injury, chronic pain, paralysis, and rehabilitation, the practices of yoga can be used to cultivate balance in the body, mind, and spirit.
