Dharma I (Beginner)
Eva Grubler (Ismrittee Devi Om) / Assistant Ira Trobnikov and Tal Aronas (indoor)
This is the beginning level of the Dharma Yoga series. Students practice Surya Namaskar Vinyasa and Shiva Namaskar Vinyasa Level I 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 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 to the mind.
