JIVAMUTKI YOGA (click to visit the Mothership - Jivamukti NYC)


Jivamukti Yoga is an integral method of yoga combining traditional hatha yoga practices with devotion (bhakti), meditation (dhyana), scriptural/textual study (shastra), chanting and sacred sound exploration (nada), and a compassionate, non-harming lifestyle (ahimsa).  Brilliantly crafted by modern masters Sharon Gannon and David Life, each class utilizes an invigorating asana practice from a vinyasa format as a springboard for deep spiritual exploration.  Jivamukti Yoga is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as “seat."  The seat provides a connection to the earth, implying a relationship to all of life.  Jivamukti Yoga provides a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings.  When the indwelling soul (jiva) that has been covered over in forgetfulness is remembered and thus free from the illusion of separation from the Beloved and all of creation, it becomes liberated (mukti) while in the body.  This is Jivamutki Yoga.
