Dharma Yoga Conference NYC
Old school yoga for new school yogis.
Sri Dharma Mittra has been teaching for 50 years in New York City and the classical style of yoga he shares, Dharma Yoga, is spreading across the globe faster than ever. With studios and communities growing rapidly in Asia, Latin America, and Europe, Dharma will be closing the year by stepping up his teachings in his adopted hometown, New York City.
The Dharma Yoga New York Conference will be held December 6-9 at the Dharma Yoga Center in Chelsea. Popular teachers representing his growing communities will come from Hong Kong, London, Mexico City and Washington D.C., to offer classes in support of their beloved teacher. As if yoga wasn’t enough, the conference will also host people with backgrounds that are extensions of the yoga practice and philosophy. This will include scientists and plant based activists and businessmen. The conference will all come together under the threshold of yoga with the ever inventive Sri Dharma Mittra introducing new classes to the worldwide base of students, an event not to miss!
Sri Dharma Mittra was asked to teach yoga at his teacher’s midtown ashram in 1967 in New York City and has been teaching ever since. He opened one of the early independent yoga studios in 1975 and began sharing the style of yoga that has come to be known as Dharma Yoga.
New York City, as Dharma often says, is the greatest place to practice yoga because there are temptations on every corner. It is where Dharma developed this classic form of yoga while updating it for modern practitioners. Dharma is often known as the teacher’s teacher because at any given class, teachers from all over the word, many quite famous, come to pay homage and practice with this living legend.
There will be laughs, eye opening information, and wonderful exercises throughout the conference. And with an international community like this one, the lifelong friendships and yoga family will continue to grow.
