Dharma Yoga Master class & Kirtan
Challenge yourself in this class to discover your
hidden abilities. This class starts with healing mantras to purify the mind and heart,
then moves on to asana (postures) to strengthen the physical body and mind.
The class will conclude with guided relaxation to rejuvenate and recharge the physical and mental system.

Master class is followed by a short Kirtan (call and response chanting. Kirtan is one of devotional practices common to Bhakti Yoga.
Through chanting, you practice Dharana (concentration) in a way that is pleasant and demands little effort. It becomes meditation when the concentration is uninterrupted.
Chanting pleasures the mind, and at the same time, opens and purifies the heart.

Chanting with devotion cultivates reverence and love. When you sing with your Sangha (community of like minded individuals) you become absorbed in the communal endeavour , and connected to others and The Inner Self.
The class is open to all who are to take their practice to the next level by pushing their physical and mental limitations in a guided, nurturing environment.
