After Olga Oskorbina’s Jivamukti yoga class a friend that was taking it called us “Ejército de Jivamukti” which means Jivamukti army. It made me laugh but in a way it is true, we are an army, because we have joined the method with a purpose, make our lives more meaningful and follow the mantra “lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu” – May all being everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom for all.
This method is about spiritual activism and both teachers and students are on the journey of finding peace, realizing yoga and make the world a better place in some creative way. It is wonderful to be a part of this movement that is beyond any specific yoga methods, movement of yogis around the world, spiritual warriors who in their local environment do their share of conscious change.
We come together at BYC to nourish each other and see how we are part of something so beautiful, large and unstoppable that it gives us more strength and capacity to continue.
Thank you to all that came to BYC for that!
