|Jivamukti Yoga is a vigorous
and challenging form of vinyasa asana practice (flowing postures), infused
with an inspiring musical soundtrack, where original scriptures are cited,
Sanskrit is chanted and meditation is part of every class. The Jivamukti Yoga
method is a style of Yoga created by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1984.
It is a vigorously physical and intellectually stimulating practice leading
to spiritual awareness.We promote the educational aspect of the practice
and give students access to where these ideas have come from. Each class focuses
on a theme, whichis supported by Sanskrit chanting, readings, references
to scriptural texts,music (from Wah! to Michael Franti & Spearhead),
spoken word, asana sequencing and yogic breathing practices. The average Jivamukti
student is more educated about the philosophy of yoga than most yoga teachers.
