Jeevmoksha Yoga

Our Approach to Yoga

JeevMoksha! The name is associated with a tradition which is timeless in that it’s the very essence of life. We all are continually seeking well being and freedom from the sickness, disorders and limitation of body mind in life. Yoga stands out to be an age old system which provides us with necessary tools to attain the said freedom. JeevMoksha Yoga is an integral style of yoga which addresses all the dimension of human beings to attain freedom. The combination of Asanas, Kriyas, Pranayama, Bandhas, Relaxation and Meditations, allows for an all round development of health and personality which improves the quality of life of the person.

Our style is a personalized approach to yoga to allow each and every individual to explore and discover their own Yoga. Tradition is an integral part of learning for us as it allows to find the authenticity in what we learn. As the ancient home and birth place of yoga, India has a lot to offer in terms of the holistic and scientific application of yoga as a lifestyle and we believe it to be our priority to give our students the experience which they are looking for self growth and transformation. Along with that we also give them the tools to be able to share their learning and experiences in their communities and society.

Yoga for us is a universal system of well being and finding the real behind the unreal. JeevMoksha is a calling for all those who are seeking and willing to transform themselves for good and embrace the divine in each of us.

The love we recieved

  • This was an humblThere are many people writting about life changing experience. That is so true. But I would say that it is more about changing yourself experience. Sure you won’t be the same after this course, after this school, after this trip. You start from changing yourself and life will Change as well. It surely will.
    Well, my stay in Jeevmoksha was amazing. I didn’t know what to expect, so I expected nothing. I just went. I was new to yoga. And I can say that Jeevmoksha is absolutely perfect for those who are new as me.
    I loved the atmosphere there. It was so calm, so friendly. You feel like in a family due to the school being pretty small. Small classes (I mean people) are perfect for studying. As teachers can work with each and every one.
    Wonderful location. Wonderful people. Wonderful experience. I’m so grateful for being there, being a part, being introduced to yoga.
    If you are seeking for pretty much spiritual experience, then maybe this school is not for you. But for those who want to learn about yoga and who are not familiar with it (deep enough), this is the best place. Here people CARE. For me it is one of the most important things.
    Find answers, find your path, find yourself, these are the values you’ll find coming to Jeevmoksha. So grateful.

  • I miss this place so much. I had such a great time in Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul learning more about yoga, myself and Indian culture. It felt like home thanks to the family atmosphere there. Everybody was helpful and caring that I really appreciate. I enjoyed the philosophy classes by Acharya Vinay, always full of wisdom and truth. Prateek classes were always challenging but fun. I had hard times in the beginning and he was encouraging and supportive. I’m really thankful for that. I also liked Divya mantra classes and chanting together. And of course all the meditation we did with our teachers were essential to me. The food in ashram was super delicious, I couldn’t imagine how much I’d enjoy Indian food. The overall atmosphere in the ashram was calm and peaceful with a perfect location up the hill. The view on the city and the mountains was amazing both at day and night time. All that helped to bring inner peace and contentment that I keep with me after I left. To be honest, I didn’t want to leave and would love to spend more time there and also travel around more.

  • One of my best experiences in life! Everyone was so friendly and caring. The place is amazing and the food was so delicious! I really enjoyed the classes and the whole atmosphere of the ashram, I really want to come back!

  • I was very lucky because my friend recommended me this school. I really appreciated the location of this ashram on the hill. There is a beautiful view of the city (especially during the night) and it’s surrounded by nature. You can go for a walk uphill and enjoy nature or downhill to the city (15 minutes). We were there during the Diwali festival so we could enjoy an amazing view of fireworks. Plus You can see the sunrise during morning yoga practices 😉
    I had some hard time before I came to Jeevmoksha and I felt out of balance but thanks to this peaceful place and energy of all the people there I felt better every day and after some time I found the inner peace again. I felt simply like at home.
    I loved philosophy classes by Acharya Vinay full of wisdom, truth and inspiration. I also enjoyed Yoga practice by Prateek. He spreads very good and always positive energy and treats everyone individually. Mantra chanting classes with Divya were a really special and unforgettable experience.
    I’m sorry that I had only 30-days Indian visa because I would definitely stay longer here and also travel more around India. So if you are not limited take more time for this travel, you’ll not regret it.
    I feel grateful that I could be part of this for a month and I’ll never forget. I already miss this place and highly recommend it to everyone!

  • I didn’t want to leave this place. I felt so at ease and peaceful over there.The whole Jeevemoksha family was amazing. I just loved the Yoga Phylosophical classes by Acharya, I could sit and listen to him for hours. The sometimes so confronting Yoga practice by Prateek. He really pushed you to give it your al. But also let us relax with the wonderful Yoga Nindra classes. We also had Wonderfull weekly Mantra classes by Divya. The location is just amazing and quite away from all the noise. The food was just excellent so delicious. Overall highly recommend this place to everyone.
