SHARON GANNON AND DAVID LIFE: JIVAMUKTI YOGA
In 1984 Sharon Gannon and David Life created the Jivamukti Yoga Method, which is a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings. They are pioneers in teaching yoga as spiritual activism/activation.
The Jivamukti Yoga Method emphasizes asana, scriptural study, devotion, prayer, music, chanting and meditation, as well as animal rights, veganism, environmentalism and political activism. Jivamukti’s passionate focus on the original meaning of the Sanskrit word “asana” as seat, connection, relationship to the earth is as practical as it is radical at this time of global crisis and consciousness shift.
The Jivamukti Yoga Method is taught worldwide at Jivamukti Yoga Schools and affiliated centers, which are in NYC, Charleston, Washington, DC, Toronto, London, Munich, Berlin, Moscow, Russia, Stavanger, Norway, and Sydney.
