Jivamukti

Jivamukti Yoga is a vinyasa-based yoga method that is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as "seat, connection", meaning the relationship we cultivate with the earth and all beings. As such, central to this method is the belief that the path to enlightenment is through compassion for all beings. With this in mind, the five tenets of Jivamukti are: ahimsa (non-harming); bhakti (devotion); shastra (chanting and the study of the ancient texts); nadam (the practice of deep, inner listening); dhyana (meditation). These practices are rooted in a rigorous asana practice, however, the asana becomes more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one’s relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment - the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realization of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness.
