What is Dharma Yoga?
Dharma Yoga is a graceful, yet challenging form of Yoga based on Sri Dharma Mittra’s almost fifty years of practice of classical Yoga.
The practice is appropriate for students of all levels, from beginner to lifelong practitioners and accessible to so many because it meets each student where they are and according to their condition.
As students move through the different series, they are encouraged to go deeper and experience the practice in a meditative and spiritual way.
Dharma Yoga has roots in all nine forms of Yoga, including Hatha, Raja, Karma, Kriya, Bhakti, Japa, Laya and Jnana, as well as a focus on the Eight Limbs of Yoga (Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga) with great emphasis placed on Yama and Niyama.
In essence, Dharma Yoga is a system of classical Hatha-Raja Yoga. A devotional practice that emphasizes good health, a clear mind and a kind heart. The method weaves together many teachings in order to bring all students closer to the goal of Self-realization.
Sri Dharma Mittra is still teaching classes on a daily basis in the mothership, the Dharma Yoga Center in NYC.
