A Jivamukti Yoga Workshop mit Anja Kuehnel (Director of Jivamukti Yoga Berlin)


The identification with the fragmented ego-consciousness is often so strong that it takes years of committed practice to loosen its grip. This grasping keeps one’s experience of reality limited due to the strong, often unshaken identification with body, mind, intellect and emotions.

The teachings of Yoga are giving us sādhanās, spiritual practices, to help overcome this wrong sense of self, and, in this way, we move towards the realization of Truth which is described in the ancient Upaniṣads as the One Reality without a second. It is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient and beyond fear. The realization of Oneness is the summit of human consciousness.

In this quintessential Jivamukti Yoga workshop we will practice āsanas, prāṇāyāma and meditation and focus on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gītā and the Upaniṣads. This will effectively train our mind and intellect to integrate essential aspects of Yoga practice in all the many circumstances of life, and live in the light of true ancient Knowledge.

Anja Kühnel has been a devoted student of Sharon Gannon and David Life since she first met them while temporarily living in New York. After almost 20 years of study with Sharon and David, Anja is more than grateful for all she has learned and all that she is still going to learn.

She is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher and mainly teaches at her two Jivamukti Yoga Berlin centers. If time allows, she accepts one of the many invitations to teach workshops worldwide. Anja has been teaching international Jivamukti retreats for a number of years, leads the 800-hour Jivamukti Apprenticeship Teacher Training Program in Berlin, where she has certified numerous teachers in the past, and is a facilitator of the international Jivamukti Teacher Trainings. She also has been teaching intensive international Jivamukti Yoga retreats worldwide for a number of years now, often together with internationally renowned teachers like Sharon Gannon, David Life, Manorama and Dechen Thurman.

“The only thing that gives me credibility as a yoga teacher is the graceful association with my teachers.” – David Life
