What is Jivamukti Yoga?
Jivamukti Yoga is one of nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga.
The name Jivamukti means “liberation while living. It is taken from the Sanskrit term “Jivanmuktih” which is used to describe the state of enlightenment or God realization. Jiva means “individual soul” and mukti means “liberation”.
This method of yoga was created by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1986. They named this yoga practice “Jivamukti” because they wanted the student to be reminded of the ultimate aim of the practice: spiritual enlightenment and awareness.
It is a vigorously physical and intellectually stimulating practice combined with an equally strong foundation in the ancient spiritual traditions of Yoga.
