Product Description

"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.

By Lena, Massage Therapist VINE VOICE on July 12, 2009
Format: DVD
Professionally recorded, this yoga session is very soothing with emphasis on seamlessly integrating the breath with movement. This is not for novices due to the lack of instruction, but those who know how to do the asanas/poses correctly w/o any direction, and being able to know the poses by their Sanskrit name & not just English is better since the English name is never given.
The music is a live band, and you have the option of voice overs from either David Life who will always tell you when to inhale/exhale, the pose name, and generally is quiet, or Sharon Gannon who tells you always when to inhale/exhale, the pose name, as well as more mind/body awareness, and occasionally the benefits of poses (especially inverted).
The session is made for advanced beginners as the hardest poses are full wheel, and a headstand w/forearms done with David while Sharon stays in a high downward dog. The pace is almost yin yoga, you will be holding the pose for several/many breaths to really feel the stretch and to relax into the pose.
Grounding/chanting - (3 min) standing, just sometimes chanting OM
Sun Salutations - (6 min) mostly mountain, standing back bend, standing fwd bend, downward dog, plank, chaturanga, cobra, and adding lunges
Standing Poses - (13 min) warrior 1, triangle, warrior 2, side angle, pyramid, twisted prayer lunge, seated twist, fwd bend over simple seated cross legged pose, plank, chaturanga, cobra, downward dog. Repeat with the other foot fwd. This requires more lower body strength as you are doing all those poses on the same leg before allowed to switch. Next wide legged seated fwd bend, chaturanga, rest in downward dog.

I've been practicing yoga for almost 10 yrs and 4 yrs ago I came to NY on a visit. While I was here, I went to the jivamukti center. I felt like I had finally made it home! However, this dvd falls way short of that experience. First, the good...*the practice itself is very good *I love the music(they have a live band playing) *I love the way it was filmed. But thats about it! I cant tell you how many times I looked up to see what pose they were doing, only to see a musician. This dvd is definately for advanced beginners. I think the more advanced yogi/ini's will be disappointed. I do have to add though, that I moved to NY to study yoga and the classes at the Jivamukti center are second to none! This dvd does not capture that magic or feeling. I hate myself for giving this 3 stars but I think you'll be better off with Bryan Kest Power Yoga or Kundalini Yoga w/ Gurmukh.

The two stars are for the lovely raga played continuously during the practice by musicians right there in the yoga studio. This DVD gives you the options of either David's instruction or Sharon's instruction in the voiceover. What you get here is not really instruction, but rather a poorly-timed loose verbal prompting through a very traditional (and frankly, unimaginative) sequence of postures. There is no warmup; the sun salutation flow begins full on and at a very brisk pace. If that's how you like to practice, then this video might be for you. OTOH, if you like to linger in a posture and if you like to hear reminders about body dynamics to help you reap the benefits of an asana and get deeper into the practice, you're out of luck with this one. If the DVD still appeals to you after reading this review, please buy mine! It's been viewed twice, and is in like new condition; I won't be using it again.

I had heard so much about Jivamukti! I really liked the book, and I was excitedly awaiting this video. I thought it started off with a bang and was great for about the first 10 minutes. After which, the poses were not that imaginative and I noticed that the sequencing was slightly off (ie; the verbal instruction did not match the movement). I didn't feel like I got a great yogic workout after this video. The song during Savasana was a totally cheesy instrumental bad folk song. I think this dvd is not worth the asking price. If you get it, buy it used...

I loved this video and consider myself intermediate to advanced. I can do backbends and headstands but really who cares. A great video has great teachers, music that helps you go deeper into your practice (i.e. the tamboura does it for me) and an easy to follow sequence. They both have calm, peaceful voices and offer different insights on their separate audio tracks. Rodney Yee and Erich Schiffmann are great too but it is so nice to mix it up. If you want to feel happy and peaceful this is the perfect yoga DVD.

I'm echoing the other reviewers when I say that the parts I loved, I LOVED and the parts that were hard to take...well, there were those too.
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.
