Yoga Journey: Spiritual Warrior Special Class with Gayle Nerva, Jun 28

Orchard Central
Wednesday, June 28, 2023
7pm - 8.15pm

This spirited and well-rounded vinyasa practice is based off the teachings of Jivamukti Yoga, founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life. It incorporates intention setting, a warm up sequence, standing poses, twists, seated postures, backbends, inversions, seated meditation, music, chanting and savasana.

Jivamukti Yoga is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as ‘seat, connection’–our relationship to the Earth. Earth implies all of life. The practice is guided by the tenets Ahimsa (Non Violence), Bhakti (Devotional Practice), Dhyana (Meditation), Nada (Sound/Music), Shastra (Study of Yogic Teachings).

The Sanskrit ‘jiva’ means the individual soul, and ‘mukti ’ or ‘moksa’–the liberation from Samsara–the cycle of death and rebirth. Therefore the Jivamukti Yoga method is to practice ‘liberation while living’.

Modifications are offered to accommodate all levels of practitioners.

Drawing inspiration from all things, people, nature, successes and failures, Gayle Nerva loves playful, open-hearted exploration. Her natural ability to hold space for her community helps people feel safe, brave and joyful in their bodies.

With a background in a music and singing, Gayle believes in the healing powers of sound, and always looks forward to sharing this music medicine with others.

Gayle has been sharing yoga since 2017. Her teaching style is lighthearted, fun-loving and grounded in compassion and curiosity. She enjoys many styles of movement, from the stable alignment-based holds of a Hatha practice, to the dynamic flowing movements of Vinyasa, dance, martial arts and gymnastics.

For Gayle, yoga and self care extends beyond the physical; it is in choosing to meet all sides of herself and others with openness, learning to meet resistance with kindness, and celebrating all the little things that we may take for granted. It is about expanding our capacity to love and respect all beings and nature. Remembering to be patient on bad days, and brave to begin over, and over again.
