Yoga Class Description

This is a Mixed Level Dharma Yoga practice that gives one a very real experience of the classical yoga teaching that has made Yogi Sri Dharma Mittra in such demand as a teacher the world over for so many years now. Those new to yoga and those who already have an established practice will all find much to inspire them in this complete online yoga practice. Maha Shakti is primarily asana (yoga postures), but what's on offer here represents a complete practice including both guided Deep Healing Relaxation (7 minutes) and a final meditation (3 minutes). This program is an excellent introduction for those new to Dharma Yoga and the powerful teaching of Sri Dharma Mittra and it will make those that miss spending time with him at the New York Center feel very much at home. Overall, a well-rounded and complete yoga practice. "I look forward to serving you only the best of the best," says Sri Dharma Mittra. (42 mins.)

That was the first ever yoga practice that left me slightly immobilized. Having said this, I do love the flow and everything. What I'm pretty sure of is that the cramps in my arms contributed to this sensation when we tucked our shoulders under our knees an rested our heads to the mat. I still have function in my arms,(obviously since I'm typing!) but I hope my arm recuperates fully soon!

I'm so thrilled that you have these classes available online. I only had the pleasure of taking one class with S.D.Mittra, which was the first time I ever worked my way into a headstand. Even when I can't do everything, it's wonderful to see where the poses lead and learn from this great teacher.



Sri Dharma Mittra

Legendary yoga teacher Sri Dharma Mittra first encountered yoga as a teenager before meeting his Guru in 1964 and beginning his training in earnest. Sri Dharma Mittra founded one of the early independent schools of yoga in New York City in 1975 and has taught hundreds of thousands the world over for nearly a half century. He is the model and creator of the "Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures," the author of ASANAS: 608 Yoga Poses, has released two DVDs to date - Maha Sadhana: The Great Practice, Levels I and II, and the Yoga Journal book, Yoga, was based on his famous Master Chart. Sri Dharma continues to disseminate the complete traditional science of yoga through daily classes, workshops, and his "Life of a Yogi" Teacher Certification programs at the Dharma Yoga New York Center and around the world.
