Jivamukti Yoga

The Jivamukti Yoga method and philosophy were developed by co-founders Sharon Gannon and David Life.  Jivamukti Yoga classes are usually accompanied by uplifting and powerful music which enhance the experience of the yoga practice.

 

Jivamukti's philosophy is expressed through the five tenets of ahimsa, bhakti, dhyana, nada and shastra. The first four weeks of this program will consist of beginner sequences and the last four weeks will incorporate the Jivamukti method in flows. Hold all poses for five breaths unless otherwise indicated in the sequence.
