Sharon Gannon is a renowned yoga master, instructor and animal rights activist. In 1984, with her partner David Life, they created the Jivamukti Yoga Method, which is a path to enlightenment not only through physical asana but also through "ahimsa" which means non-violence and compassion for all beings. She is a refreshingly radical pioneer in teaching yoga as spiritual activism and has ignited the hearts and opened the intellects of thousands of students leading by her example, teachings, love of music, her discipline and quick sense of humor. Here she discusses her new book "Yoga and Vegetarianism
The Diet of Enlightenment"
"Through the practices of yoga, we discover that concern for the happiness and well-being of others, including animals, must be an essential part of our own quest for happiness and well-being. The fork can be a powerful weapon of mass-destruction or a tool to create peace on Earth." - Sharon Gannon
