Dharma Yoga Pula

DHARMA I – Gentle dharma 

This is the beginning level of the Dharma Yoga series. The classes are for everyone who wants to learn the basics of yoga. The teacher will guide you through the basic positions that will help you become aware of your body, movement, breath and mind. In each class, you will also receive clear instructions for performing yoga positions (asanas), and for some positions, the teacher will also show you variations so that you can adjust your personal practice. Beginner classes will start with a warm-up, followed by Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), afterward the teacher will introduce you to basic standing, sitting and lying positions (asanas). This practice ends with  breathing exercises, deep relaxation and concentration/meditation to bring peace to the body and the mind.


Mix level

It is a mixed level of dharma yoga, a combination of vinyasa and asana. The class is intended for advanced beginners and intermediate practitioners as well for all those who want to progress in their yoga practice. Through vinyasa, we harmonize breath and movement, and we awake the energy. The class has a creative character and can be adapted for everyone through different variations of asanas. The practice ends with deep guided relaxation and meditation which can bring us a deep sense of calm and peace.


The class has a relaxing character, suitable for the morning. A yoga practice that will recharge, energize and prepare you for the whole day. We start the class with breathing techniques - pranayamas, followed by asanas and end with deep relaxation and meditation that brings us into a state of peace and relaxation. The class is suitable for everyone.


Breathing techniques

Pranayama is the practice of breath regulation. It's a main component of yoga, an exercise for physical and mental wellness. In Sanskrit, “prana” means life energy and “Yama” means control.  The practice of pranayama involves breathing exercises and patterns.

Everything that happens in our consciousness also affects our breathing. The tempo of our breath when we are upset is fast, and when we are relaxed and calm, our breath is longer/slower. By regularly practicing pranayama, we release toxins from the body, purify ourselves from harmful thoughts and balance our emotions. By doing pranayamas, oxygen is distributed to different levels of our physical body, systems and vital organs, and prana is distributed to different levels of our subtle body.  When we control the breath and prana we control the mind.  When we practice pranayama and focus on the breath, the mind goes inside into the activity of breathing. In this way, pranayama prepares us for meditation.


Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is an ancient technique of relaxing the body and mind. Through Yoga Nidra, we bring the body to a semi-conscious state, the state between sleep and waking.

Deep relaxation removes tension from the physical body, normalizes the circulation of oxygen, blood and energy (prana), relieves depression and anxiety, energizes and regenerates the entire system, and heals us. In yoga this technique we call pratyahara in which the attention goes inside and, the mind relaxes and enters deeper aspects of consciousness. Yoga Nidra calms the nervous system, mind and emotions. Research has shown that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is like 3 hours of sleep.

Yoga Nidra is for everyone from complete beginners to more advanced practitioners, from children to adults.
