Jivamukti Yoga Barcelona is happy to host the third Jivamukti Yoga Immersion in Barcelona in the fall of 2017!
Immersion will be led by an International Ambassador of Jivamukti Yoga YOGESWARI and assisted by Olga Oskorbina, Karina Gusalova and Maria Macaya (Barcelona).
The Jivamukti Immersion™ experience is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the deeper teachings of the Jivamukti Yoga method. The material presented is drawn from the one month, 300-hour Jivamukti Yoga teacher training course, but it is presented in a more relaxed way with plenty of time to enjoy and reflect. The immersion is perfect for those wishing to delve deeper into the practical and mystical practices of Jivamukti Yoga. A Jivamukti Yoga Immersion provides great opportunities to make breakthroughs in asana practice, detox your body/heart/mind, and more deeply integrate your individual self with the greater reality.

A Jivamukti Immersion™ takes the student deeper into the study of Jivamukti Yoga and its five tenets: Ahimsa, Scripture, Meditation, Nada and Bhakti, as well as asana. Jivamukti’s passionate focus on the original meaning of the Sanskrit word “asana”—as seat, connection, relationship to the earth—is as practical as it is radical during this time of global crisis and consciousness shift. The Immersion is perfect for those wishing to delve into the practical and mystical practices of Jivamukti Yoga. A Jivamukti Immersion™ provides great opportunities to make breakthroughs in asana practice, detox your body/heart/mind, and more deeply integrate your individual self with the greater reality.
Because of the world-wide popularity of Jivamukti Yoga, Immersions attract students from all over the world, enabling you to meet new friends from many diverse places, building stronger yoga communities locally and globally.
Jivamukti Yoga is a practice that transforms the individual by means of spiritual activation. Through its practices we can as members of a greater, world-wide community dismantle this present culture and begin to build a new way of life—where peace, love and harmony among all beings forms the foundation. We don’t have time to wait for enlightenment, alone in isolated caves or yoga bubbles—now is the time to become spiritually activated so that we can see what we have known in our hearts all along—that what we do to the world we ultimately do to ourselves.—Sharon Gannon
