Jivamukti Yoga in and integrated Yoga method founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in the beginning of the ‘80s in New York. It is a path to liberation through compassion for all beings.
Jivamukti Yoga classes always incorporate the five fundamental tenets that define its method;
- Dhyana (meditation),
- Shastra (study/ philosophy),
- Ahimsa (non-harming),
- Bhakti (setting a higher intention),
- Nada (deep listening, incorporated in class through music, spoken word or silence).
Through this, students learn not to see asana as separate from spiritual study or chanting or meditation, but rather to integrate all of the elements into one unified practice.
