Sharon Gannon and David Life developed the Jivamukti Yoga method in 1984. It is a vigorously physical and intellectually stimulating practice leading to spiritual awareness. When translated from Sanskrit, jivamukti means "living liberated." The style has become so respected that it is one of the nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga.
Today they travel the world teaching students the true meaning of yoga in the hopes of giving them practical methods that benefit people directly and immediately. Together they have co-authored "Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body & Soul", and "The Art of Yoga."
I am eternally grateful to them for transmitting the teachings to me, for the example that they set, and for their constant guidance and love. www.jivamuktiyoga.com
