Guest Teacher JIVANA

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.

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.

Workshop Options

Femmika Empowerment

Women’s only workshop.  Revel in the pleasure of our Divine Feminine.  In a two hour workshop we cover the connection between women and Earth, explore self-care exercises that will leave us feeling more in control of our natural and inherent beauty, discuss orgasm, learn (and possibly allow ourselves to indulge in) sensual movement, and find our unique embodiment pose.  Leave this workshop feeling more integrated, wild, and fully alive. Price is $40.

Self-Love and Superheroism Private Consultations

90 minute private coaching session addressing Self-Love in relation to ultimately serving the world. JIVANA listens to needs and desires in order to cater the offering to each unique individual. Some people will require more self-love techniques while others may need help identifying how they can best serve the world or maintain doing so. Everyone goes home with several personalized techniques including one specific embodiment pose that encapsulates their inner superhero/ine. The session starts and finishes with “the heart” feather blessing ritual. Price is $75.

***Private Yoga Classes are also available for $70/hour.
