Dharma Yoga Nidra provides instant, PURE ENERGY not found in food or energy drinks, and this energy is 100% natural.

Soon, you will go beyond ordinary consciousness to where your thoughts become powerful and creative. The after effects of the practice are similar to those one experiences after a good, deep sleep. One feels really energized and positive. Deep Psychic Purification or Yoga Nidra is for the person of the future who gets his or her energy from within, rather than from outside. After practicing, there is no need for food, because the mind is calm and you feel energized and happy. Regular practice will allow you to tap into the boundless joy that is already within. (No special clothes or mats are needed to practice.)

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. Sri Dharma’s passion for helping students go deeper in their practice using only the best and most efficient techniques with the ultimate goal of Self-realization (gaining absolute knowledge of the True Self) is reflected in all aspects of the Dharma Yoga system.

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. Sri Dharma was given an extraordinary gift of knowledge in receiving yoga directly from his Guru, Sri Swami Kailashananda a.k.a. Yogi Gupta, for over a decade beginning in the early 1960′s. During this period of intense study, Sri Dharma was exposed to various yoga techniques that he has refined over an almost half century of practice and teaching into the Dharma Yoga he and his certified teachers the world over continue to share with their students each day.

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.
