Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. Regular practice will help you reach improve and perfect poses, correct posture and positioning, and improve your breathing and outlook on life.
Yoga is a great way to improve your endurance in other physical activities. After a run, or heavy workout, yoga will help your body relax while stretching, strengthening, and lengthening the muscles you were just working on. Learn more about us on our 108 Reasons Podcast at www.108reasons.libsyn.com
Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.
Mysore Style is the traditional method of teaching the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of yoga, which is the backbone of the All Levels classes at Dhyana Yoga. It is ideal for all levels of experience. When you first walk into the room you will notice that each student is working independently and the teacher moves from person to person, offering physical assistance and any necessary verbal instruction. The room is quiet except for the students breathing with sound. It is a wonderful way for you to start your day!
Please feel free to come observe a class during the posted Mysore hours to experience the magic of the Mysore style practice for yourself.
Practice times are blocked out from 6:30am-9:00am, but in this style of practice you can come and go during these times as is appropriate and/or convenient for you. On Fridays we offer a fully led, instructed class that runs through the entire sequence so that you can learn the Primary Series with the intended rhythm and in the proper order. You should ask John before dropping into the Friday morning class. But on all of the other days, you could come from 6:30-8:00am, or from 7:00-9:00am, 6:30-7:30am, etc, as long as you are finished practicing by 9:00am. Showers are available and you can store your mat and towel with us.

Journey Deeper into the Flow : Join us for an advanced study of the practices of yoga… and how to best teach them. This 300 Hour course is the next step for graduates of any 200 hour yoga teacher training course, and moving forward, Yoga Alliance is requiring that all hosts of 200 Hour Teacher Training Programs be graduates of the additional 300 hours.
Upon completion, graduates will be able to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500 Hour RYT. You must have a 200 Hour certificate to apply — this 200 Hour Training can be from any Yoga Teacher Training.
Our Program Goals are to provide you with high level, advanced content from teachers with a minimum of 10 years teaching experience, to support you through the process of growth that is inevitable when undertaking such studies, and to help you create your own authentic, unique content that sets your teaching apart upon graduation. This course is $1900 if paid in advance, or $200/month for 12 months. Some content will be available online.
TO APPLY: Please send an essay sharing your yoga experience so far with us, including what you see now as your greatest strengths and deepest challenges, and let us know where you did your 200 hour training (if not at Dhyana Yoga). Program starts March 2020 - we will send you a schedule ahead of posting it here if you email your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org.
