I’ve been going to Jivamukti Yoga at Yoga+ Makati since early this year, and I’m drawn to the spiritual aspect of this type of yoga. While I don’t necessarily believe in a Hindu god, it has given me more insight into my own relationship with both my higher self and a higher intelligence (God, according to Catholic doctrine). At the same time this type of yoga has made me more mindful of my connection to the world around me—albeit I haven’t gone vegan yet (nor do I want to just yet). Jivamukti is one arm of the physical practice of yoga that touches several deeper points in a person’s life. Balance this with a regular practice of Yin Yoga (or Daoist/Taoist yoga), another type that I enjoy learning, and you’ll see, feel, and be the difference.
