What is Jivamukti Yoga?

The core philosophy of Jivamukti is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word "asana" as seat, meaning relationship to the Earth, which implies all of life. Citing Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, which states that asana should be "sthira and sukham" (steady and joyful), Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent (sthira) place of joy and happiness (sukham)." This radical philosophy is then practiced through five tenants, Shastra (study of yoga texts ) Bhakti (devotion to the big picture) Ahimsa (kindness to all beings) Nada (music and mantra) and Dhyana (meditation). You'll find this philosophy offered in all the Jivamukti Open classes.
