Jivamukti Yoga Retreats around the world
Jivamukti: This style of yoga was founded by David Life and Sharon Gannon, and takes inspiration from Ashtanga Yoga. It emphasizes chanting, meditation, spiritual teachings, and how to apply yogic philosophy to daily life. Jivamukti classes offer a vigorous flowing physical practice, and foster intellectual stimulation to lead to spiritual awareness. Classes often focus on a theme, and include breathing techniques, chanting, readings, and eclectic music. One of the core principles of Jivamukti Yoga is non-harming (Ahimsa) and classes often promote environmentalism, animal rights, and veganism.
