WHAT IS THE JIVAMUKTI ASHRAM?
A Chance to Live, Work, Practice in a Conscious Community with Senior & Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teachers
☉ Spend between 2 to 14 weeks with like minded kindred spirits
☉ Community cooking, gardening, music and sharing art
☉ Daily Seva (service) 1 hour per day per person (cleanliness, kitchen, garden)
☉ Practice classes for newer teachers to gain confidence and develop their skills
The weeks and months that we fully dedicate to Yoga practice—to good association, studying the right topics, putting ourselves in the right environment conducive to that practice—usually are some of the most nourishing and life-changing times of our life.
According to Master Patanjali, practice must be done with sincerity, over a long time, with consistency and intensity. Therefore, it is not merely an exception to the rule of worldliness; it is not in anticipation of a future event; it is a holistic lifestyle, a real path with depth and dedication.
