"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.

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.Read more ›
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.
