Jivamukti means “liberation while living.” This modern style of yoga emerged in 1984 from one of New York City’s best-known yoga studios. Founders David Life and Sharon Gannon incorporated their study of Ashtanga yoga with Shri K. Pattabhi Jois with spiritual teachings, placing special emphasis on how to apply yogic philosophy to daily life. Life and Gannon emphasize ahimsa, or non-violence, perhaps more than any other yogic precept. Veganism is an essential part of the Jivamukti method.
