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 upcoming fictional autobiography, JIVANA is pioneering rave culture literature, and 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'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.
JOURNEY OF RA WORKSHOP
See your practice from a different perspective with an engaging overview of the larger system of yoga.
As evidenced on the walls of pre-historical temples, we delve into Egyptian origins and meanings of certain yoga postures including and emphasizing the sun salutation also known as “The Journey of RA”. This study is juxtaposed with the understanding from India and the 8-fold path. This workshop is for anyone that wants to feel a deeper spiritual connection to the system of yoga especially if there is a love for sun salutations. Included is a section on inversion training to work toward a headstand. 2 HOURS $50
