ABOUT Jules Febre (US)
Jules Febre was born and raised in a section of New York City known as the Lower East Side. At the age of 13, Jules spent three months in India; two of which were spent in Mysore studying Ashtanga Yoga with Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. During that time he was invited to share satsang with Swami Nirmalananda and Shyam Das, two radical yogis that have each contributed greatly to the progression of yoga in the West. At the age of 16 Jules began working at the Jivamukti Yoga School helping to clean, and is now considered one of the leading teachers of the Jivamukti Yoga method, teaching the method world wide as well as facilitating at the very highly regarded teacher training programs.
Jules travels and teaches for a major part of each year, including Europe, Australia, Asia, and more. His classes offer a wide range and depth of understanding of Yoga Asana as well as Meditation, Chanting, and Yoga Philosophy.
Teaching yoga is Jules’ passion. He is grateful to his teachers, Sharonji (Gannon), Davidji (Life) who he has had the privilege of studying with for over 15 years, for igniting his devotion to the Jivamukti Yoga practice and for inspiring countless students around the world.
What is Jivamukti Yoga?
The Jivamukti Yoga method, a form of Hatha Yoga, incorporates 5 tenets: Ahimsa/nonharming, Bhakti/devotion, Shastra/study of yogic texts, Nada/yoga of deep listening, and Dhyana/meditation.
A typical Jivamukti class incorporates an ever-changing flow of Asanas/postures (vinyasa) that is intended to challenge a student on many levels. Each class revolves around a theme based on ancient wisdom and emphasizes the importance of practicing with an elevated intention. Chanting, meditation, and inspiring music are part of every class.
This is classic Jivamukti: original, sequential, inspirational, and wild at the same time. We'll focus on an asana practice that will enable you to become an activist on and off the mat.
Expect the full Jivamukti package of tradition, music, meditation, bhakti, and challenging asana with a taste of outrageousness.
The intensive course is a great journey for all yoga practitioners with a suggested vinyasa experience and a great refresher and inspiration for Yoga teachers.
