An important healing aspect of yoga is learning to let go of the self in order to merge with everything, a process enhanced in a group setting, as everyone breathes together. Sri Dharma Mittra, the legendary yoga teacher, has devoted the past fifty-five years to sharing his deep knowledge of yoga. In this master class, he will provide an overview of classical yoga philosophy, including the eight-limbed path and the Koshas. He will also guide the class in the proper practice of yoga, including asana (the physical exercises), pranayama (the main breathing exercises), and guided meditation in corpse pose, which helps one discover what one really is beyond the body and the mind.
All levels of experience are welcome.

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. In 1975, Sri Dharma founded one of the early independent schools of yoga in New York City, and has taught hundreds of thousands the world over in the years since. Sri Dharma is the model and creator of the Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures; is the author of Asanas: 608 Yoga Poses, Yoga Wisdom, and The LOAY Teachers’ Manual; and has released two DVDs to date: Maha Sadhana Levels I and II. 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” trainings at the Dharma Yoga New York Center and around the world.
