GUEST TEACHER BIO
JIVANA is a multi-dimensional being, playful spiritual artivist, and tantrika-yogini. JIVANA considers art a spiritual path, which includes the art of yoga. With the idea that “I am Art”, JIVANA as an avant-garde yogini applies her philosophy of karma yoga to artivism. JIVANA uses writing, dance-performance art, digital media, and collaborations with artists to raise awareness about important issues, inspire people to feel empowered, and act selflessly to change the world.
She has been running a holistic environmental awareness non-profit for over a decade which includes several projects in the Southern Nicoya Peninsula: Futuro Verde environmental school, Karen Mogensen Reserve in Jicaral, Wild Sun wildlife rescue and release center, and the Green Wave environmental show home. She attributes finding her yogic path and being empowered to start and continue her non-profit work to an art project she started in 2004 that revolves around the superheroine character and muse, Raver J. She has published a comic book and full-length literary novel about this character.
Through her karma yoga work, JIVANA is a living example and inspiratrix for others to lead a more conscious, intentional, beautiful, and blissful existence while balancing the call to help save the planet in their own unique and creative way. Her teaching is heart-centered, Earth connected and reverent.
Through her novel, JIVANA has contributed to the pioneering of rave culture literature in hopes to inspire and continue to build a global community of artivists -peaceful, playful, poignant, warriors of the rainbow dedicated to transforming the world.
JIVANA'S TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
JIVANA believes if we follow our heart, we serve the world and calls this “Self Love to Superheroism”. Over the course of your week stay at Anamaya, JIVANA takes you on a journey through the temple of the body. Morning classes incorporate playful themes, are built around addressing what she calls “fierce fundamentals”, and lead up to fun and challenging poses. These classes are vinyasa fusion, coupled with Kundalini breath work, that help energize the mornings. Her evening classes are deeply restorative. She teaches about self-love, gratitude, embodiment, and “off the mat” action through her asana classes, workshops, and private consultations. Her classes have been influenced by her teachers and personal experiences. She is grateful to the different wisdom lineages.
Dive deep into the infinite waters with Jivana to find the pearl (the purpose) of both tantra and yoga, liberation. This workshop leads with practical and ancient embodiment exercises. It is an exploration of breath, folds, and bandhas followed by a brief exploration of tantric-yoga philosophy, sadhana, and the implications of the possible Egyptian origins.
Workshop is $40.
Self-Love and Super Heroism Workshop
Before we can give to the world and work to regenerate our Planet, we must first learn to deeply love and rejuvenate ourselves. This workshop is about the translation of love into service. Learn simple but powerful self-love techniques for body, mind, and spirit, including discovering an archetypal pose for personal empowerment. A brief discussion on the Yama and Niyamas of yoga and how they apply to Self-love will support the taught techniques. The workshop will then segway into and conclude with a conversation on karma yoga (service), and explore how this is a pathway to liberation (the purpose of yoga).
Workshop price is $40.
Private Sessions with Jivana
As Jivana speaks freely about overall yogic philosophy, cosmology, and mythic living, prívate sessions are available to students who wish one on one guidance with asana alignment, or discussion and practices of classical Tantra.
Price is $100/hr or $150/2hr. 50% of Jivana’s fee is donated back to her charity, Green Wave.
***Package price for the two workshops $65.
