Jivamukti Yoga with Annalisa Tiranti
Jivamukti Yoga is a path to enlightenment rooted in compassion for all beings. The Jivamukti Method is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as “seat/connection” – meaning relationship to the Earth, implying all life as we know it.
Citing Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, which states that asana should be sthira and sukham, Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent (sthira) place of joy and happiness (sukham). This is a radical idea that, when put into practice, can dismantle our present culture, which is based on the notion that the Earth and all other animals exist for our benefit and to be exploited for our own selfish purposes.
Therein the practice of asana becomes more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one’s relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment – the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realisation of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness.
