Jivamukti

Founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York City in 1984, Jivamukti classes integrate the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of yoga. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced yogi the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.

You work at your own pace, following the teacher’s verbal cues and live demonstrations. Asana options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.

A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga:

  • shastra (scripture)
  • bhakti (devotion)
  • ahimsa (kindness to all beings)
  • nada (music)
  • dhyana (meditation)

An Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation.

The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner, nevertheless please take the class at your own pace respecting your boundaries whilst exploring new concepts.
