Jivamukti Yoga

Jivamukti Yoga is a style where the asana is always quite vigorous. You can expect beautiful, flowing vinyasa sequences, where the movement is linked by breath. All classes start out at a powerful pace and as the body has warmed up, the innovative way of linking asana continues, with a a constant emphasis on presence of mind and easeful breath. 


In a Jivamukti class of any level, you will probably be introduced to something new to you, from binds to more advanced balances to other details.  


Jivamukti Yoga is a very popular Yoga method founded in the 1980’s in New York by David Life and Sharon Gannon based on the styles of their three Indian Gurus.


Typical for Jivamukti is the many hands-on adjustments and personal cues the instructor gives throughout the class. Classes tend to have a theme of the month drawn from classical Indian philosophy, so the practice of asana becomes much more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to calm ones mind as well.
