The Jivamukti Method is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as “seat, connection” – relationship to the Earth. Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent place of joy and happiness. This core philosophy is expressed through five tenets, which form the foundation of Jivamukti Yoga: Ahimsa (Nonviolence), Bhakti (Devotion), Dhyana (Meditation), Nada (Sounds), and Shastra (Scripture). Jivamukti teachers embody these tenets.

Week 1: Ahimsa - Nonharming
