Everyone wants to be happy, it’s that simple. Yoga is about realising your inherent happiness. It exists in each and every one of us and the path of Yoga provides us with a very practical means to awaken this joy, that is our natural state of being.
The Living Yoga studio is more than just a space; it is a sacred space where students immerse themselves completely in yoga. We encourage our students to take their practice off the mat and into the world we all share. Established by Cherryl Duncan in 2006, the studio and the community that has sprung up around it has continued to grow under Sarah Bentz, a certified Jivamukti teacher and the current owner and director of Living Yoga in Craighall. Sarah is supported by an incredible group of like-minded teachers all meeting the highest teaching standards and inspiring a path to yoga through compassion for all beings.

“Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhanvantu. May all beings everywhere be happy & free”.
Jivamukti Yoga is more than just a physical practice, it is a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings. Founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life, Jivamukti Yoga is grounded in the Sanskrit Word – Asana – meaning ‘seat’ or ‘connection to the earth’. Our relationship to the earth and all beings that inhabit the earth should be mutually beneficial and come from a place of happiness (Sukham) and Joy (Sthira).
This core philosophy is expressed through 5 tenets that form the foundation of Jivamukti Yoga and are found within each Jivamukti class. They are:
A nonviolent, compassionate lifestyle extending to other animals, the environment and all living beings. Emphasizing a Vegetarian diet.
Acknowledging that Self/God/Divine realization is the goal of all yoga practices. Chanting, setting an Intention and other devotional practices.
Meditation: Connecting to the unchanging reality within.
The development of a sound body and mind through listening. Incorporated into the practice through music, spoken word and chanting.
Study of ancient yogic philosophy and Sanskrit. Following the focus of the month provided by Sharon Gannon and David Life each month.
