What is Dharma Yoga? by Sac Nicte

Dharma Yoga is a modern interpretation of classical Eight-limbed yoga (or Hatha-Raja yoga), deeply rooted in ethical precepts that include elements of flowing Vinyasa, inversions, and held poses that will help you discover concentration, meditation, abiding contentedness, and deep healing relaxation. Dharma Yoga was created by Sri Dharma Mittra in 1975. The physical posture practice (asana) tones and invigorates the body and mind, leading to enhanced flexibility, strength, balance, and concentration. Breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditative techniques regulate the heartbeat, de-stress the nervous system, and calm the mind. Guided deep healing relaxation, or Yoga Nidra, relieves stress, slows down the thoughts, calms the mind, and recharges the physical & emotional body. Dharma Yoga is traditional, yet contemporary — perfect for the fast-paced world of today. It is a complete practice that will lead to radiant health and a peaceful life.
