Jivamukti Yoga Directory
Welcome to the Yoga Journal Jivamutki Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Jivamutki Yoga into their practice and philosophy.
Jivamukti Yoga was created by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984. Jivamukti means liberation while living. Sharon and David blend the study of ashtanga yoga with Shri K. Pattabhi Jois with spiritual teachings. Their teachings place high importance on how to apply yogic philosophy to daily life. The practice is for students who want a physically vigorous and mentally stimulating practice to develop ones spiritual life. Typically in a class you can expect eclectic music, a vinyasa flow sequence, chanting, yogic breathing, references to yoga text, and meditation. One of the main principles of Jivamukti yoga is Ahimsa (non-harming) and classes often promote and teach about animal rights, veganism, and environmentalism.
