IE Yoga Club – Jivamukti Yoga with Candida Vivalda

candida vivalda [1]jivamukti yoga [2]In our weekly yoga practice on Wednesday, April 29th, we had the opportunity to enjoy a free Jivamukti yoga class leaded by Candida Vivalda. Candida is a professional yoga instructor certified by the prestigious New York Jivamukti Center.

The Jivamukti Yoga is a modern brand of yoga created in 1984 by David Life and Sharon Gannon. On one hand, it is inspired in the ancient Indian tradition and, on the other, it is adapted to the Western context and the daily life needs. It can be stated as integral yoga, since it combines the physical, ethical, and spiritual practice in each session. It has become very popular among celebrities, for instance, Sting and Madonna.

During Candida’s class we had the opportunity to enjoy a vigorous hatha yoga, together with meditation and philosophical discussion. It was an excellent opportunity to reconnect with our true-self and to recharge our batteries for the final part of the IMBA.
