David Life & Sharon Gannon
When David and Sharon opened their New York yoga school in 1989, they chose to call it Jivamukti to reflect yoga's true goal: enlightenment. Literally, Jivamukti means liberation while living, and as taught by these two gifted yogis, this physically vigorous and intellectually stimulating style of yoga has transformed the lives of thousands of students. Now one of the nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga, Jivamukti can show you the way to optimum health, fitness, and joy.
In just an hour a day, this Jivamukti Yoga practice will help you create a new foundation for a happier, healthier life. The practice is fast and flowing, set to music played on traditional instruments. The instruction is thorough and inspirational. Once you make Jivamukti Yoga part of your life, you will look different to the world and the world will look different to you.
«… We see things however we see things because they are inside of us. You can’t see an ugly thing unless you have ugly in you. If you want to see beauty and peace, it has to come from inside of you.

[...] If we wish to free ourselves from identifying exploitive relationship where there are winners and losers, then all of our actions should address how to best resolve our problems with the others who appear in our lives.
