Jivamukti Yoga

Jivamukti Yoga is a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice based on a philosophy of Oneness and compassion for all beings. Jivamukti Yoga provides a framework for a holistic, spiritual lifestyle which includes devotion, scripture, music, non-harming, and Meditation along with physical yoga asana practice. The physical practice of Jivamukti Yoga consists of vigorous Vinyasa-based flow sequences, usually to the accompaniment of music.  

What to expect

Jivamukti Yoga classes involve flowing vinyasa yoga sequences along with breathwork, meditation, chanting, and spiritual teachings.  Music often plays an important role as a tool for developing one's capacity for deep listening, considered one of the paths to spiritual awakening. Jivamukti Yoga practice is designed to develop all aspects of one's being and to apply to all aspects of one's lifestyle.


Jivamukti Yoga was developed by David Life and Sharon Gannon, who founded The Jivamukti Yoga School in New York in 1984. Their method is credited with reviving yoga's ancient holistic philosophies and presenting them in an accessible, modern way.  Jivamukti Yoga has become popular with many celebrities.
