Master Practice (120 minutes)
This practice will challenge students to dig deep into their determination and will power to achieve great results. The class will focus on inversions, backbends, and hip openers. None of the asanas are rushed and students have the opportunity to discover the pose in its full glory, and to go deep into a meditative state.
SUNDAY, March 26:
Maha Sadhana, a complete and eternal practice (3 hours)
This practice is known as the best that Dharma Yoga has to offer. Learn the ancient yoga techniques through a modern perspective as taught for decades by master yogi Sri Dharma Mittra. The workshop will include kirtan, pranayama, meditation, and asana poses in an all levels practice. The sadhana will make the body healthy, strong, and flexible and lead students to quiet the mind, build endurance and overcome fears. Included at the end is a wonderful way to relax the body and mind called yoga nidra. It’s an active meditation guided by the teacher, a perfect way to end the asana practice. It’s said that 30 minutes of yoga nidra is as good as three hours sleep. Then comes an amazing asana jam! We set up a few mats in the center to offer up poses as everyone sits around them in a circle, singing devotional songs. Students can offer up anything they’d like for world peace, even a shavasana pose.
