As we have been told, karma yoga is the practice of selfless service – doing deeds with “no strings attached”, as Dharmaji would say.
When I am able to maintain this perspective with focus and clear intention, the world around me changes. The practice of Dharma Yoga found Danielle in 2010, and after her very first class, she began to immerse herself in it, feeling a deep calling to share it with others.
Legendary Yogi Sri Dharma Mittra, teaching since 1967, founded the first independent school of yoga in New York City in 1975, and has taught tens of thousands the world over in the years since. Sri Dharma Mittra is well known for his famous Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures that hangs in studios worldwide. The book Yoga and Yogic Powers by Yogi Gupta was a revelation when I first read it more than two years ago.
Our thoughts are basically electrical currents or vibrations that are carried throughout the universe and can physically impact, even manifest, other people’s thoughts as well as physical matter.
This is a really important concept to understand in yoga, since we are ultimately trying to master control over our thoughts.
Every single thought is its own form comprised of energetic vibrations that are transmitted and picked up by other human beings. Every thought we have in our earthly bodies is stored in our astral bodies for the afterlife.
Dawn has had a consistent yoga practice since 2006 and completed her first 200-Hour Teacher Training in 2009 in Washington, D.C. The practice of mantra protects the mind and heart from distraction, and helps us to cross over the discursive mind.
By establishing the psychic link with the guru through recitation of the mantra, one becomes receptive to spiritual guidance across all planes of existence, and is able to stir the spiritual awareness which resides in one’s spiritual heart. 3.     Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, The Wisdom of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, (Paraclete Press) quote taken from Introduction.
The following topics are covered in the text: the definition of Yoga, Yoga and Christianity, philosophy of Yoga, types of Yoga, principles of relativity and duality, effects of Yoga, Yoga and Ayurveda, Yoga and Longevity, Yoga postures (asanas), breathing techniques, meditation, importance of Yoga, the necessity for a teacher, food and health, color and health, relaxation, and practice courses. I love that he included a chapter on Yoga and Christianity, as, in my experience, so many Christians have been misled about Yoga being a cult or a religion, or “opening one’s mind to the devil.” He talks about Ghandi and Patanjali, and compares their teachings to Christ’s teachings. There are a variety of places in the book where he refers to such things as the importance of a guru, the yamas and niyamas, the eight limbs, maya, karma (or, with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction), but ultimately he says, “in the highest forms of yoga (like Raja-yoga), he [the yogi] transcends it [maya] in Samadhi when he becomes part of the Primal Force.” All yogis (and non-yogis alike) should read such a book so that it becomes clear how inter-related the entire body is.
I am grateful for Yogi Gupta’s work in the Americas, with Sri Dharma Mittra, and now, God willing, through me. As a young woman, Katherine was a high school mathematics teacher about to embark on a Masters of Mathematics program.
The highest crowning are meditative asanas, pranayamas (breathing techniques) and Yoga Nidra (psychic sleep). Sandra Petra is learning from the most eminent spiritual teachers of today (Sri Dharma Mittra, Sri Sri Ravi hankar, Sacinandana Swami, Dhanurdhara Swami NYC, Radhanath Swami etc.) yoga as well the Vedic knowledge, philosophy and psychology. Is a special series of mental exercises sequenced to improve your psychic abilities and promote the projection of your thoughts. Sri Dharma Mittra has spent most of his life in service to humanity, disseminating the ancient knowledge of how to achieve radiant health and spiritual development. In 1984, he completed the Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures as an offering to his Guru for all Yoga aspirants. Um eine Asana stabil, leicht und freudvoll zu erleben, bedarf es konzentrierter Aufmerksamkeit. Je nach „Asana-Familie“ wird die Muskulatur gekraftigt, mobilisiert, gedehnt oder auch entspannt. Sri Dharma Mittra hat dazu vor vielen Jahren ein Yoga-Poster mit 908 verschiedenen Asanas entworfen. Ganz gleich welche Asanas (-> Ubungsvorschlage) man ubt, das Ziel ist immer das Beruhigen des Geistes, um Korper, Geist und Seele wieder in Einklang zu bringen. Karma yoga was a major part of Dharmaji’s path with Yogi Gupta, according to the LOAY teacher training manual. Usually the cure for this lack of enthusiasm includes reading the section of the teacher training manual that talks about Dharmaji’s life when he was studying with Yogi Gupta. It helps me to remove the sense of self-entitlement that seems to permeate many of my peers’ lives. Other people sense that I am receptive and deeply appreciate my openness and ability to listen. She participated in the 200-hour Life of a Yogi Teacher Training program in June 2011 (completing her certification the following May), and she completed her 500-hour certification in May 2013.
Events will open with a special Master Class taught by Sri Dharma Mittra on Wednesday, May 14 from noon to 1.30 pm at the Dharma Yoga New York Center (61 West 23rd st, New York, NY).
Created in 1984 the chart depicts Sri Dharma in 908 yoga poses, many of which are rarely seen today.

It completely transformed how I think about yoga, what I knew at the time about yoga, and how I have approached my yogic studies since then. Negative thoughts translate into negative energy, and increase the likelihood of negative events.
All the cells in the body are under direct control of your higher mind, not your conscious mind.
People who have don’t have strong protection around their auras are more prone to receive negative thoughts or psychic attacks.
Those thoughts and currents can also manifest themselves in forms of disease or health and, among the extremely evolved yogis, can take physical shape. Those thoughts and actions form our Karma, which helps determine the course in our next lifetime. She found her real calling when she stumbled upon the Dharma Yoga Center‘s website that year and moved to New York in 2010 for a new job and to train at the DYC. He starts out with such a clear message right on the cover page, with the symbol of Om and jnana mudra – symbolically representing the purpose, path, and result of yoga all in one.
Throughout the book, one can see that Yogi Gupta was familiar with all the main yogic texts.
He says that we need to “transcend, as did the saints, the limits of the ‘gross’ physical self,” hence needing the techniques of yoga to bring us there.
So, if one is not yet deeply connected spiritually, the “hook” will be on the physical health.
But, Yogi Gupta lived on raw foods for more than twenty years and says, “I feel much better for it.” It is amazing how much he knew about the increased nutrient value of food, long before there was much publicized on that. However, at the age of 28, Katherine recovered from a life-threatening and debilitating illness through Yoga and Colon Therapy. All this techers have a great influence on her yoga and life path where she want to share Raja-Hatha yoga with developing the bhakti or the way of devotion.

Nicht nur die Haltung an sich ist wichtig, sondern auch das hinein- und hinausgehen, sowie die Synchronisation mit der Atmung.

For me, the practice of karma yoga has begun to help me understand what “dharma” truly is, as well as to teach me how to interact with other people in the world in a better way. The fact that he was both paying for every class with the Master (meaning he had to work several paying jobs), as well as offering his services as a karma yogi is incredibly inspiring. It helps me break the ego a little more, stay humble, and realize that no task is beneath me – no matter what I may have “accomplished” in this material plane.
I accomplish every task that is given to me much more easily, and simultaneously, I create no attachment to any of this external feedback. Additionally, she has over 18 years of experience studying dance & movement, which greatly informs her yoga instruction, especially in the aspects of anatomy and alignment.
Sri Dharma continues to teach classes for all levels in New York City and gives workshops around the world.
Positive thoughts attract more positive energy to your aura, and increase the odds of a good outcome on whatever it is that you’re focusing on. Your higher mind, which never sleeps, literally controls all mechanical and electrical functions in the body; therefore, it can heal disease. You can psychically “charge” yourself and protect yourself against attack by generating more prana and strengthening your aura. She completed the LOAY 200-Hour Teacher Training with Sri Dharma Mittra in 2011 and the LOAY 500-Hour Teacher Training in 2012. He refers to the following texts and authors: Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Goraksha Samhita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Rig Veda, Bhagavad Gita, Swami Vivekananda, Aldous Huxley, Gerald Heard, Christopher Isherwood, and Dr.

In 2001 she start more seriously practicing independently and studying the yogic philosophy of Hatha-Raja yoga and vedas. Before Dharma yoga she has learned yoga also with Mark Whitwell (Yoga of Heart), Richard Freeman (Ashtanga Yoga), Sean Corn (Vinyasa Flow Yoga), Bryan Kest (Power Yoga) and from teachers of Jivamukti yoga with Sharon Gannon, David Life, Gabriela Bozic and Petros Haffenrichter and some other teachers as well.

This promotes harmony within all these layers so a concentrated state of radiant health is achieved.
These mantras will establish perfect psychic rhythm to mental patterns which puts power behind your thoughts making it easier to achieve your goals and desires in life. Sri Dharma was one of the first independent Yoga teachers on the East Coast, initiating hundreds of thousands on the path of Yogic practice and teaching. Sri Dharma has literally been teaching classes continuously every day since he started in 1967.
Reading this  portion of Dharmaji’s story helps me realize that life is fairly simply if we allow it to be – just do what has to be done to move forward on your path, and forget the energetic charge that comes with complaining or creating stories about what it means to do the things you have to do!
Approaching everything in daily life as karma yoga simplifies my existence a great deal, and helps me reconnect with the act of giving constantly from a place of pure devotion.
Students and teachers from around the world flock to his practices and renowned “Life of a Yogi” Teacher Training Immersions for 100, 200, 500 & 800-hour certification programs. However, negative thoughts can affect your higher mind and, in turn, your physical body in negative ways.

Und „der Sitz, also die Yoga-Ubungen oder Asanas sollen stets stabil, leicht und freudvoll sein.
Statische Asanas werden meist uber mehrere tiefe Atemzuge gehalten, so entfalten sie ihre volle Wirkung und starken die Ausdauer.
This is what it means to truly live your own dharma – to remove all resistance to what is happening or what must happen, and go forth with your best enthusiasm and your best efforts.
As Dharmaji says, “Devotion leads to the total surrender of ego,” and eventually to the goal: Self-Realization or God-Realization. Yogis are able to gain control of their higher minds and to access or control the forces of nature, which is also known as supernatural phenomena. Yoga has not only transformed her body, strength and overall health, but it brings a sense of balance and calm to her high-stress job covering finance and politics in New York and Washington, D.C. It also imparts wisdom, peace, harmony, sympathy and generosity.” He connected the concepts of our raw food with the color of the food, and their vibrational qualities.
