Die Jivamukti Yoga Methode wurde 1986 von Sharon Gannon und David
Life entwickelt. Seit ein paar Jahren leben die beiden in Woodstock
und steuern von dort ihre berühmten Jivamukti Yoga Center in New
Heute unterrichten die beiden Jivamukti™ Yoga auf der ganzen Welt und verbreiten die Dringlichkeit von ethischem Vegetarismus, Umweltbewußtsein und Sozialer Verantwortung. Sie haben bisher zwei Bücher veröffentlicht: Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body & Soul, and The Art of Yoga.

Sharon Gannon (Tripura Sundari)
Sharon Gannon started her quest for liberation upon her birth on July 4th in Washington, DC. Sharon views art as a means for uplifting the soul and her artistic pursuits enriched the community by educating and inspiring. In 1984 she shifted her main focus from the performing arts to teaching yoga in the hope of giving practical methods that would benefit people more directly and immediately. Sharon has studied yoga since 1976 with many teachers around the globe, most notably with Shri Brahmananda Saraswati, Swami Nirmalanada, Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, Swami Shankarananda, Shyam Das and Bhagavan Das. She brings a rare blend of scholarly study, artistic pursuits and a highly disciplined asana and meditation practice to her offerings as a teacher.
David Life (Deva Das)
David Life was born in a small town in Michigan where his Catholic upbringing inspired devotion to the Christian mystics St. John of the Cross and St. Theresa of Avila. He holds a BA degree in Art with minors in Poetry and Psychology. He has had a lifelong interest in metaphysics and spirituality. David spent several years as an initiate of a lineage of yogic monks, and has received initiation by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. He has studied yoga around the globe with many teachers including Shri Brahmananda Saraswati, Sri Swami Nirmalananda and Shri K. Pattabhi Jois (from whom he received certification in the advanced Ashtanga series). His interest in yoga is supported by his artistic, literary and metaphysical studies. His classes are filled with metaphor, musicality and spirituality, spiced with humor, vigor and spontaneity. He is considered to be a "teacher's teacher" and his teachings are internationally renowned.
