As a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings, Jivamukti Yoga is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as “seat, connection” – relationship to the Earth and Earth implies all of life.
“Citing Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, which states that asana should be sthira and sukham, Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent (sthira) place of joy and happiness (sukham). This is a radical idea that, when put into practice, can dismantle our present culture, which is based on the notion that the Earth and all other animals exist for our benefit and to be exploited for our own selfish purposes.
So the practice of asana becomes more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one’s relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment – the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realization of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness.” – Jivamukti Core Philosophy
“The first time I practiced Jivamukti yoga I felt I had knowledge of all that was being said without me having heard it before. The teachings of Yoga I experienced in my first few classes sat so beautifully in my heart and soul, it felt part of me, intrinsically. The more I learned about Yoga as a Lifestyle as opposed to something you ‘do’ the more I wanted to learn, and practice and to be saturated in the teachings. Jivamukti Yoga fulfilled this need for me. One of the 5 tenets of Jivamukti Yoga is Ahimsa- non-violence, this is how I wish to spend each day and every moment of my life.”

Vinyasa is the movement between poses in yoga, typically accompanied by regulated breathing. A method of yoga in which movements form a flowing sequence in coordination with the breath.
Vinyasa yoga is great for beginners and people looking to find out more about their bodies and their breath. It is a great practice to build strength and flexibility. It is also a very good way to learn the poses, the sequences and the alignment need to prevent injury.
“Vinyasa brought me to the mat and is a great way to build strength and flexibility but ultimately I was searching for more spiritual growth hence looking for and finding Jivamukti yoga.”
