Return to Book Page. Preview — Jivamukti Yoga by Sharon Gannon. What I appreciate so much about David and Sharon is how they help their Yoga students to understand and appreciate the wisdom of all the great saints and jivamuktas who have contributed to raising consciousness.

Ultimately, it is Self-Realization, that is the true goal of Yoga.

As they explain their intensely physical and spiritual system of flowing postures, they provide inspiring expert instruction to guide you in your practice. Gannon and Life help you understand each of the practices that comprise the yoga path to enlightenment: Sharon and David are deeply dedicated students and teachers of Yoga who have the rare capacity to translate their profound understanding to the reader.

Apr 19, Justin rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a book to change your way of book.

It is more like Be Here Now than a typical yoga book. Although there are practices covered jivanukti this book, these practices are covered elsewhere. The main benefit of this book, in my opinion, is changing the way you view the world. This book needs to be read slowly.

bkok I did not but will do so when I get the chance. Feb 28, Heather rated it it was amazing. I really connect with the Jivamukti style, it being focused on the cultivation of compassion for ourselves, others, and the world around us.

It’s includes detailed information that delves into important topics of yoga. Also, I find it extremely for helping transform your practice, with many outlines for how to structure up your home practice.

I am currently reading it. From the very first moment the book arrived, I just could not wait to start it. I left the other books I was reading to have all the time to begin with it. I am absolutelly and totally in love. One of my bests. You can really feel what yoga means getting an special touch.

Oct 09, Claire Elizabeth rated it it was amazing. This is my big take-away from the book: I had everything to do with where I am now. However, if not for efforts of those who have gone before me or for the graces of the Divine, I would not have the actions or words I have. In physics, every action has an equal jivaukti opposite reaction. So too, in my life, do my actions have effects.


For example, if I have a bad day at work through no fault of my own and go home with a negative attitude, the result, if I choose to maintain the negative attitude, is that I will say hurtful things to those around me. My jivamukri and family around me will remember these hurtful words and it will have a negative impact on my future. Again, my friends and family will remember this version of me and give me that benefit in the future.

Each soul is working out what it must on its road back to the Source. You can start paying attention to your own karma, your own actions. You are the agent for your fate. You had everything to do with where you are now. What you did before matters. What you are doing now matters. What you are thinking now matters. Yogis accept difficulties as opportunities to work out bad karma. It is wise to give thanks for everything that happens, knowing that the present situation can change in an instant.

I want to take a second to evaluate the rare moments when I may fill the role of teacher: With my man, I am always learning form his kindness and generosity to be more patient with people and given them the benefit of the doubt. With lawyers, I am always learning how to do my job better—learning to review briefs and letters more thoroughly; learning to put up with more difficult personalities; and learning to stay strong in adversity. This is book I like my asana practice. When I go to the gym by myself, jivamjkti cardio and weights, I clear my mind for the day with my asana practice: When in next down dog, drop knees and inhale, exhale, look at sky and arch back on inhale in cat, release all air and look through legs as spine is rounded in cow, repeat.

Each asana is a unique vibrational expression of oyga aspect of manifestation. In each vinyasa krama, you experience the flowing river of life as you become cat-cow-ocbra-dog.

Jivamukti Yoga by Sharon Gannon, David Life | : Books

When we place ourselves in an asana, we express both the vibrational essence of its Sanskrit name and the vibrational essence of the life form that the asana embodies. Jul 29, carrie beth rated it it was amazing. This is the best overview book on yoga I have ever read. It is descriptive enough that even very beginners can pick it up and get to practicing right off.

It doesn’t just emphasize what most westerners think of as “yoga”- the asanas, or physical practices, but they give equal weight to, and highlight the importance of, all eight limbs of the yogic path, making clear connections between yiga limb.

Practice: Books

yoya Some folks might find it a bit preachy, but I think there is something here for anyone interested in learning yoga or meditation, or just curious about how to live with more awareness and even-mindedness. Oct 25, Laura rated it it was amazing.


The book spends little time on asanas, teaching only about sequencing instead of specific poses they say: Most of the book is about the ashtanga and yamas, such as ahimsa non-harmingyota how these are necessary components of a yoga practice.

I liked this book because it provided a very accessible view of yoga. There were very thoughtful approaches to yoga, and I felt the book was completely sincere. As a musician, I really appreciated the emphasis placed on music in the practice — from just livening things up to chant and items that are more devotional. The area that I wasn’t sure I aligned was with their suggestion that yoga might be a religion, rather than a philosophy.

I could see the Gannon’s perspective on this matter, but feel I liked this book because it provided a very accessible view of yoga. I yogaa see the Gannon’s perspective on this matter, but feel that yoga is best left as a philosophy. Casting yoga as a religion, I believe, would be restrictive. It is currently creating jivamjkti turmoil in parts of the US, with Encinitas coming to mind.

Overall, I would recommend the book.

I would love to visit the Jivamukti studio in New York. One of the influential teachers in my life offers a Jivamukti practice, and reading the book enhance my understand of this manifestation of a contemporary yoga practice.

Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body and Soul

May 29, Jayme rated it it was amazing. I resisted reading this book for a long time. As a professional yoga teacher, I kind of detest ‘signature yoga methods’ and I was vaguely creeped out by Gannon and Life’s photo being worshipped on the altar at my local Jivamukti studio.

However, this book is an amazing resource for teachers and students. I was surprised to find my prejudices against the authors softened by their earnestness and the great respect they have for their own teachers, which shines through in the book. I’m keeping a co I resisted reading this book for a long time. I’m keeping a copy in my library to re-read. Jul 16, Joy rated it it was amazing. Very cool people, these two. They studied in India under Pattabi Jois among others. They are very very political in the animal rights and vegan realm.

I got to take some of there classes last year at the SWYC. Jul 16, Hannah O’Reilly rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I have to admit – I have not read every page of this book but I find it to be a great reference for sequencing a yoga class and setting up a vigorous vinyasa practice.

Even without having read the meat of the book yet I find this to be a great resource. Jul 04, Tracee rated it it was amazing Shelves: Love me, love my crazy yoga books.
