Jivamukti Yoga

Jivamukti Yoga is a modern yoga style that was co-founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984. It was developed further from Ashtanga Yoga as a dynamic and vigorous yoga style. Sharon Gannon and David Life incorporated music, the singing of mantras and the reciting of traditional texts as well as meditation. The aim is to apply the ancient yogic philosophy to modern life and to show the students an enduring way to be happy and content, independent of outer circumstances. David Life defined with Sharon Gannon five central tenets for Jivamukti Yoga: ahimsa (non-harming), bhakti (devotion), nada (the power of sound), dhyana (meditation) and shastra (scripture). Furthermore this Yoga style points out veganism, environment protection, animal rights and self determination of every human being. The word Jivamukti means “liberation while living” and comes from the Sanskrit word jivanmuktih. Sharon Gannon does yoga retreats together with David Life and these are a really special opportunity to live the philosophy and practice of Jivamukti Yoga with them in a beautiful surrounding.
