If you ask David Life what he does, “spiritual activist” might be the first thing out of his mouth. As a student of Brahmananda Sarasvati, Swami Nirmalananda, and K. Pattabhi Jois, Life went on to co-found the Jivamukti Yoga studios in New York City with his partner Sharon Gannon. Together they have starred in several yoga DVDs, including Power to the Peaceful Yoga with musician Michael Franti, and authored books such as Yoga Assists. He is a longtime vegan and staunch animal rights supporter, giving deer, bears, turkeys, birds, and amphibians a safe habitat in the Wild Woodstock Jivamukti Forest Sanctuary he helped establish.
