Paul Steinberg

Paul came to yoga in 2005 near the end of a 20-year career as a lawyer and law firm manager. After exploring several other styles of yoga practice, he found Jivamukti Yoga and its creators, Sharon Gannon and David Life, who became his teachers. In 2008 he became a certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, and since then he has immersed himself full time in the teachings and practice of yoga, as well as the study of two forms of energy healing—BioGeometry and Matrix Energetics. In addition to teaching and energy healing, Paul spent 6 years working closely with his teachers as their editor and advisor, which enabled him to deepen his understanding and commitment to the practice of yoga and its goal, the realization of enlightenment, or deep and lasting peace and contentment.
Jivamukti appeals to Paul because it incorporates all elements of yoga philosophy and practice, including asana, meditation, devotion and service to others, and because it rests on the recognition of the Oneness of being—that is, beneath the surface of physical differences, all of creation is one unified whole. Gopal’s teachings are suffused with this recognition, which eliminates boundaries and views life and the world as a universe of limitless possibilities. 
Paul is part of the 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Faculty at YogaVenue.
