Harriet teaches Jivamukti yoga, having studied with inspiring teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Yogeswari and Patrick Broome.
She first came to yoga whilst training in dance, finding that asana brought her a sense of clarity and calm. Drawn further into the practice, it was yoga philosophy and meditation that both challenged and supported her, finding great inspiration to continue on this path. Then when moving to London she discovered the Jivamukti method, taking her first class with Emma Henry. The integrated method grabbed her there and then!
Harriet teaches a dynamic physical practice, aided by hands-on assists, using uplifting music and creative challenging sequences. Classes are structured to incorporate the five tenets of Jivamukti yoga and she hopes to provide a safe and warm environment, creating a sense of grounding but also the ability to explore.
Thanks go to all the teachers who have inspired and continue to enrich her practice and teaching.
Jivamukti Yoga is a path to liberation through compassion to all beings. Founded in New York in 1984 by Sharon Gannon and David Life, it has since grown into an internationally renowned form.
It is a dynamic physical practice that integrates scriptural study, devotion, chanting, music and meditation. The method emphasises the original sanskrit word 'asana' as seat, connection to the Earth, promoting ethical vegetarianism and animal rights.
The name Jivamukti comes from two sanskrit words; Jiva meaning individual soul and mukti meaning liberation.
"The name Jivamukti Yoga reflects the fact that it is possible to have a beneficial and fulfilling life in the world, and also progress spiritually-perhaps even attaining liberation (Samadhi) while living.”
