One Class and Two Workshops!
We are very happy to announce that Jeffrey Cohen is coming to Europe and will give us a quick visit here in Basel.
Jeffrey Cohen received his Bachelor’s from the University of Michigan in Psychology and is an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher. His interest in yoga stem from a mishmash of the arts, athletics, addiction, behavioral problems, numerous psychotherapists, and “alternative” education. His subsequent failure to respond to traditional methods of psychotherapy were the seedlings to the realization that it is through divine community (satsang) and devotion that one can one obtain healing, humility, and salvation.
He is an ambassador of yoga presenting classes, retreats, & workshops around the globe. Jeffrey serves as an acting Facilitator and formerly Lead Mentor for the residential Jivamukti Yoga® Teacher Training Program and is also a member of the Omega Institute and Kripalu guest teaching faculty. Video and radio projects include collaborations with Russell Simmons and Martha Stewart.
Jeffrey is known for his rawness, humor, warmth, relevance, and candor. His classes are textured with a perfect blend of sonic vibrations, rigor, and hands-on assists.
Jeffrey Cohen is co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga Charleston.
All the events will take place on April 4.
9:00-10:30 Open Class(for all levels): A morning class full of powerful asanas toghether with paranyama and meditation accompanied by a mind blowing sound track.
13:00-16:00 Workshop for experienced practitioners, certified teachers and those interested in becoming (jivamukti) teachers:
Accessing that natural, indescribable quality that draws students to a teacher. Call it charisma, charm, likeability, or inspiration. But whatever this natural ability is, we were all drawn to it, moved by it, and ultimately it turned us on so much to the yoga practice that we desired to become teachers ourselves. At times we may have felt frustrated in our ability to communicate the vastness of yoga, maybe even felt frustrated or limited by the Jivamukti method itself. We may have felt that we needed more technical “know how” or more experience to ultimately draw a class room full of students, only to be dumbfounded and confused as to how a teacher so fresh and green – right out out teacher training – is instantly so popular. Learn how the codified Jivamukti teaching method is not a hindrance to accessing your natural ability but the gateway. We will focus on exercises that will make available your birth given natural talent that is unique only to you, that will utilize what is in the moment, and feel comfortable completely throwing out your class plan so you can be the conduit to channel Divine Grace.
19:00-21:00 Advanced Jivamukti Class(Intermediate and advanced levels): Jivamukti Yoga offers vigorously physical and intellectually stimulating yoga classes. Classes include Vinyasa (flowing asana sequences), hands-on adjustments, Pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, Sanskrit chanting, Yogic philosophical teachings and deep relaxation. To keep the practice inspiring, asana sequences are ever-changing with music playing an integral role in the class.
