"David and Sharon have inspired and encouraged us to think of yoga not just as a system of exercises, but as a door to the infinite."-- Sting
"Not merely a workout, it's a way of life" -- InStyle
When David and Sharon opened their New York yoga school in 1989, they chose to call it Jivamukti to reflect yoga's true goal: enlightenment. Literally, Jivamukti means liberation while living, and as taught by these two gifted yogis, this physically vigorous and intellectually stimulating style of yoga has transformed the lives of thousands of students. Now one of the nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga, Jivamukti can show you the way to optimum health, fitness, and joy.
In just an hour a day, this Jivamukti Yoga practice will help you create a new foundation for a happier, healthier life. The practice is fast and flowing, set to music played on traditional instruments. The instruction is thorough and inspirational. Once you make Jivamukti Yoga part of your life, you will look different to the world and the world will look different to you.
SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE audio track options, one by David and one by Sharon; 9-minute facial massage instruction; and freestyle yoga demonstration.

I like the brisk pace at first and I like the instruction. The music during practice was wonderful and soothing. BUT once you get to corpse pose some sort of weird country-feel good hybrid comes on and that was very confusing. My way to handle this is just turn off the DVD right before savasana and do my own. I think I can handle that. 😉
This DVD is more "personal" than those mass produced blank background ones and there are personal touches and sentiments throughout. If you buy this, just keep that in mind. It really is a good practice.
beautiful layout and setting
good steady instruction but beginners will need to watch it a few times to follow without watching (true wherever you practice no?)
beautiful music EXCEPT for the noted Savasana hoe-down ("You are not a bad, messed-up person" (subtext-you think you are)). How inappropriate, what a jolt thematically and musically, what were they thinking??? Seriously thinking about redubbing the earlier music to mask this part.
I found the practice rather short when you take into account the length of time spent in shoulderstand and headstand. Are there any dvds with practices over an hour, rather than a quick 'workout'?
Would be nice to see a pt2 with a denser, longer sequence.
They show you intermediate and advanced and how to get to the advanced poses so you can try to give yourself a push to strive for them.
The teachers are good, you have a choice of male or female instruction which I think is a great idea.
Probably the only thing I don't like is the final resting pose and the choice of song, not too sure how it fit's in. Would rather of listened to the live instruments played throughout which are very soothing.
In a nice setting with nice (live performance) yoga workout music, the authors take you through a complete workout routine. Not too fast or slow. I like the option of choosing to hear either the male or female instructor leading the progression. You can also choose no voice over at all. This is great to work out to at home, for a daily practice, or a fill in when you can't make it to class.
If you want a good, well presented Vinyasa (flow) Yoga session given by thoughtful professionals, you will be happy with this.
