Jivamukti Yoga

<< return to a to z of yoga

A modern fusion of the physical, ethical and spiritual aspects of yoga. You'll chant, sing, listen to thought-provoking readings and challenge your body with a vigorous, flowing practice set to uplifting music. Much more than just a work out, this is a path toward yoga's ultimate goal - enlightenment.

Good to Know

Classes include sanskrit chanting, references to ancient scripture and often thoughts on social, political or animal rights activism.

Who's it for?

Yogis who want to adopt an all-encompassing practice that reaches far beyond the mat.


Jivamukti Yoga was created by Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York City in the early 80s. Jivamukti is translated as jiva meaning the individual soul, and mukti meaning freedom. It is often translated as 'liberation while living'.
