Guruji BKS Iyengar introduced his precise system of practice to the West in the late 1960s. Iyengar Yoga uses the physical reality of the body to better know our minds, and develop understanding of the deepest parts of ourselves. This intelligent practice uses props such as blankets, blocks, and straps, to facilitate learning and to help adjust yoga postures to individual needs. SYS features the specialized equipment of the “Great Wall” system to offer specific techniques and props for the Iyengar practice.
Each Jivamukti Basic class is part of a four-week fundamentals course that explores a different theme each week:
- week one: standing asanas
- week two: forward bending asanas
- week three: backward bending asanas
- week four: inversions, meditation and "putting it all together."
Whereas in the Beginner Vinyasa and Open class vinyasa is emphasized, in the Basic class alignment is the emphasis. Students are taught “how to do” asanas as well as the use of props. The Basic Class provides the underlying structure to help a student be able to eventually enter into an Open class intelligently and safely. Beginners are encouraged to take all four weeks of the Basic course. Intermediate and advanced students will also benefit from exploring the alignment essentials presented in these classes. It is advisable that a student register for the full 4 week program starting with week one, but a student can also drop into any class at any time during the month and can also take as many classes as they want each week. This class is suitable for beginners, but open to all levels of practitioner. The length of a Basic class may differ at different centers, so please check the schedule for the center you are attending.
Whether you're a beginner, deciphering the difference between vrksasana (tree) and sirshasana (headstand) or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.

An Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. All Open classes include 14 points—asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher.
The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to attend a Basic or Beginner Vinyasa Class. The length of an Open class is 90 minutes.
