Dharma Mittra Yoga Beginnings

If you have heard the name Dharma Mittra then you’ve surely known this master’s contribution to the world of yoga. Dharma Mittra studied yoga since 1958 and began teaching in 1967. He is currently the Dharma Yoga New York Center’s director. As yoga guru with many excellent years of studying and perfecting the yogic system, on 1984 he completed the “Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures” of which he is best known for. Also called Dharma Mittra yoga, his yogic system is like no other.

What makes Dharma Mittra Yoga so Special?

Dharma Mittra yoga, notably known for “Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures,” consists 1,300 yoga postures of which the master photographed himself. His work has served as an inspirational tool for avid yoga students and teachers alike. Dharma Mittra yoga focuses on the classical yoga practice. With 50 years of expertise in yoga, the man himself has made sure that his yogic system will empower the body and strengthen your defense against diseases and ailments. The guru’s yogic principle emphasizes ahimsa (non-harming) by means of vegetarianism and veganism. Dharma Mittra Yoga centers on extending kindness to all living creatures.

Instructional Materials for Dharma Mittra Yoga

Dharma Mittra yoga uses many instructional materials aside from the chart mentioned above:

•Maha Sadhana (which means “The Great Practice”) DVD set- this DVD contains 2 levels namely Level I- Shortcut to Immortality and Level II- Stairway to Bliss.
