About this book
Creators of the extremely popular Jivamukti Yoga method and cofounders of the New York City studios where it is taught, Sharon Gannon and David Life present their unique style of yoga for the first time in book form. As they explain their intensely physical and spiritual system of flowing postures, they provide inspiring expert instruction to guide you in your practice.

Unlike many books about yoga, Jivamukti Yoga focuses not only on the physical postures but also on how they evolved?the origins of the practices in yoga?s ancient sacred texts and five-thousand-year-old traditions?the psychotherapeutic benefits that accrue with a steady practice, and the spiritual power that is set free when energy flows throughout the mind and body. Jivamukti Yoga, which means ?soul liberation,? guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health, and Self-realization?the ultimate goal of any practice. Gannon and Life help you understand each of the practices that comprise the yoga path to enlightenment:
AHIMSA?The Way of Compassion: choosing nonviolence, respecting all life, practicing vegetarianism, living free of prejudice
ASANA?The Way of Connection to the Earth: postures and sequences, breathing, transforming energy, understanding the bandhas
KARMA?The Way of Action: creating good karma, giving thanks NADAM?The Way of Sacred Music: appreciating the sacred sounds of yoga
MEDITATION?The Way of the Witness: how to sit still and move inward
BHAKTI?The Way of Devotion to God: living with love, grace, and peace

Whatever yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen that practice and lead you onto a path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery.
