Jivamukti Yoga, developed by Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York in the early 80’s, provides the modern yogi a practical way to embody century old teachings in the world today.
Based on the yogic tradition and grounded in ethical practices, Jivamukti —which means “living liberated”, is a rigorous physical practice combined with practical philosophy that teaches how to live in the modern world with more joy and compassion.
Five basic concepts are evident in Jivamukti Yoga core philosophy: nonviolence, devotion, meditation, scripture, and music, and they are an integral part of the practice. Jivamukti Yoga is taught worldwide at Jivamukti Yoga schools and affiliated centers. Swaha Yoga Center has joined this large family in 2013 as the first Jivamukti Yoga affiliated center in Greece.
The Swaha Yoga presents a space that encourages self-expressive, creative and playful approach to Hatha Yoga. With an emphasis on alignment and precision, freedom of individual expression is in the middle of discipline.
The Swaha Yoga Center is located in the area of Acropolis, in the heart of Athens in Kallisperi street alongside the pedestrian Dionysius Areopagite, below the Theater of Dionysus. The path to the Swaha Yoga Center is easy and pleasant, due to the large pedestrian Apostle Paul and Dionysius Areopagite bordering the south and west with the monument of Acropolis.
Plaka, Monastiraki and Thissio are an enjoyable ride without cars, though the center is easily accessible by car, bus and metro. The metro station ‘Acropolis’ in line 2 of the Athens Metro is only 5 minutes.
