A Message About Jivamukti Yoga School NYC
Dear Friend and Jivamukti Yoga Practitioner,
In this ever-changing world, some things must end in order to spring new beginnings. Our beloved Jivamukti Yoga School at 841 Broadway is closing soon. The last day of classes will be December 22nd 2019.
The multitude of challenges in this current version at our location has left us no choice but to close the doors. Jivamukti Yoga, however, will endure in the New York area and all over the world through our teachers and studios – including new studios that have opened in recent years, and yet another brand new opening in Paris in 2020.
We would like to take this time to say thank you for your support of the NYC Jivamukti Yoga school. We would also like to thank our founders Sharon Gannon and David Life, who brought Jivamukti Yoga to New York City in 1984. A big thanks to all the teachers who taught at the School over the years, and brought Jivamukti Yoga to countless individuals like you, who practiced and took part in embodying our 5 Tenets – including devotion and compassion to all beings including animals and the environment.
As Sharon Gannon says:
The physical space known as the NYC Jivamukti Yoga School may not endure, but the enrichment that we have all received from our association with it will endure – if we nurture the eternal positive principles we have all received, during our time spent within its walls. This is indeed a time to be thankful.
For those of you who have unused classes in your class-packs, we strongly urge you to use the unused classes in the remaining time. But if that is not possible, we assure you that we will work with you to provide refunds where applicable and Jivamukti credits for other offerings within our ecosystem.
If you wish to keep the credit, you can use it towards a digital subscription, attendance at our next annual Tribe Gathering in Barcelona, Spain (May 2020), or at our Jivamukti Yoga Jersey City Center. We request your patience with us as we work on each and every individual case after closing. You don’t have to email or call us. We will contact each and every one of you with unused classes to allow you to select either the refund or appropriate credit that will be of use to you.
We are extremely grateful for all the time you have spent with us at 841 Broadway, and we wish you the very best in your spiritual practice. Our talented New York-based Jivamukti Yoga Teachers will be communicating with you soon. We certainly hope that we will meet again in New York and share the next adventure with you.
Until Then, Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu.
Kindest Regards and Namaste.
Staff & Management of Jivamukti Yoga Center, New York

Whereas in the Open and Spiritual Warrior classes vinyasa is emphasized, in the Fundamentals class alignment is the emphasis. Students are taught “how to do” asanas as well as the use of props. The Fundamentals class provides the underlying structure to help a student be able to eventually enter into an Open class intelligently and …

Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have an hour to practice. The class is fast paced and invigorating and is certainly a “get-in-shape” class. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warm-up, chanting, setting of intention, …

NYC Jivamukti Cafe
Yoga practice is not just restricted to what you do on a yoga mat. Yoga is a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings. Not everyone can stand on their heads everyday—but everyone eats. The best way to uplift our own lives is to do all we can to uplift the lives of others. If we want to reduce the amount of fear and suffering in ourselves and in the world, which is really our heart, the most immediate, direct and powerful way is to make kind food choices.
Through delicious, nourishing, vegan meals using organic foods free from genetic modification, by preparing the food in a spiritually charged atmosphere and by employing sustainable practices that support the continued viability of all precious life forms on our shared planet, the Jivamuktea Café is our way to contribute to creating a happier world for all beings. We invite you to join us.
