Jivamukti Yoga founded by Sharon Gannon & David Life is a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings.
The Jivamukti method is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word ‘asana’ as ‘seat, connection’ – relationship to the earth. Earth implies all of life. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, states that asana should be sthira and sukham, Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent (sthira) place of joy and happiness (sukham).
The core philosophy of Jivamukti is expressed through Five Tenets, which form the foundation of Jivamukti Yoga. Jivamukti teachers embody these tenets.
Nada – The development of a sound body and mind through deep listening; can be incorporated in a class using recorded music, spoken word, silence or even the teacher’s voice.
Bhakti – Acknowledgment that God/Self-realisation is the goal of all yoga practices; can be expressed through chanting, the setting of a high intention for the practice or other devotional practices.
Shastra – Study of the ancient yogic teachings, including Sanskrit chanting, drawn from the Jivamukti global Focus of the Month.
Ahimsa – A non-violent, compassionate lifestyle extending to all living beings & the environment, encouraging students to take steps towards healthy positive change for the benefit of the planets and all its inhabitants.
Dhyana – Meditation: connecting to that eternal unchanging reality within.
