HATHA-RAJA YOGA (DHARMA LEVEL I) | MALONE YMCA
Appropriate for students who are just moving up from beginner to intermediate level, as well as those who have been practicing for a while & want a slower pace to the flow. Introductions to yogic philosophy and more flowing from one pose to the next.
This class also continues to deepen pranayama (breathing) and meditation techniques. This is the beginning level of the dharma series. Students will practice and be introduced to dharma yoga shiva namaskar vinyasa level 1 to warm up the body , bring flexibility to all muscles and joints, and wake up the nervous system. A gentle yet powerful series of balancing, stretching, back bending, twisting and mild inverted postures will follow. This practice ends with deep relaxation, breathing exercises, and concentration/meditation to remove impurities and bring a sense of well -being to the body and radiant peace of mind.
