Jivamukti Yoga method was created in 1984 by Sharon Gannon and David Life. This style of Yoga reintegrates physical and intellectual aspects of yoga leading to spiritual awareness. The name Jivamukti is taken from the Sanskrit term” jivan” (individual soul) and “mukti” (liberation) and means Liberation while living, which is the ultimate aim of the practice. Jivamukti is a form of Hatha Yoga taught in a vinyasa style where each movement is linked to the breath. Each Open class focuses on a theme drawn from the Focus of the Month, written by Jivamukti Yoga founders. The spiritual teachings are supported by ancient scriptures of yogic philosophy such as Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhagavad Gita, and Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Sanskrit chanting, uplifting music, yogic breathing practices and meditation are part of every Open class. The Jivamukti method expounds upon five tenets: non-violent, compassionate lifestyle, study of ancient yogic texts, meditation, yoga of sound and deep listening, and devotion. The Jivamukti method of Yoga is one of the nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga with the other eight being: Ashtanga, Iyengar, Viniyoga, Sivananda, Integral, Bikram, Kripalu, and Kundalini.
Today Jivamukti Yoga is practiced around the world with centers in USA, Germany, Russia, Spain, Mexico and Australia. People love this style of Yoga for the way it brings together the philosophical, intellectual, spiritual and physical aspects of yoga, having as its aim nothing less than enlightenment.
