ivamukti EFounded in 1984 by David Life and Sharon Gannon, jivamukti means "liberation while you live." Jivamukti is a vinyasa-style practice with themed classes that often include chanting, music and readings. The main goal of jivamukti teachers is for students to apply yoga philosophy to their daily lives.

What does a class look like?

There are six different types of classes in jivamukti yoga. Some of them are:

  • Open class- intended for all levels. You work at your own pace, guided by the instructor's voice and hands. Classes incorporate writing, devotion, non-violence, music and meditation. In an "open class" they discuss the teachings of yoga and how they can be applied to everyday life. There are also asanas designed by the teacher.
  • Basic Class- a four-week course for the student to learn more about how to do the asanas safely and have better nutrition. The advanced series (Sthira Bhaga: focusing on the Force). Spiritual Warrior- a vinyasa class for people who want to get in shape while benefiting from the other aspects of yoga. They are the best choice for intermediate students.
  • Beginner Vinyasa- a class similar to Spiritual Warrior but intended for beginners.
  • Meditation- using mantras, songs, guided meditation and a question and answer session with the teacher.

What are the benefits?

It is a style of yoga that, like all yoga, can have great impacts on the body and mind. The classes have a lot of movement and help increase strength, flexibility and balance. In addition, these classes aim to help practitioners and the world at large spiritually, through scriptures and talks on ahimsa (non-violence). The classes are also geared to introduce students to the community.
