Dharmayogakaruna, in alliance with The Yoga Institute, Mumbai is an association that aims to share the study and practice of Classical Yoga, Hatha-Yoga and Meditation. We were inspired by the example of the life and message of our teacher: Smt. Hansaji Yogendra, director of The Yoga Institute, Mumbai and of the founding masters of the institute: Shri Yogendra (Founder), Smt. Sitadevi Yogendra and Jayadeva Yogendra.
Dharmayogakaruna offers a practical and theoretical approach to the disciplines of Yoga and Meditation suitable for the society in which we live, without however altering their traditional spirit. Our message is addressed primarily to citizens, who must face the daily challenges of an increasingly frenetic and stressful life that inhibits our inner nature, our spiritual essence.
A culture of peace, mental wellbeing, development of awareness, compassion, ethical vision and protection of the environment in which we live are our main objectives. Realizing them is possible thanks to the work of transformation that is carried out with a sincere practice of Yoga and Meditation.
We offer the teaching of various aspects of Yoga based on the philosophical and practical principles of Patanjali’s Ashtanga-Yoga and the Hatha-Yoga tradition, as we learned and practised them at The Yoga Institute, Mumbai.
We also propose the practice of meditation techniques based on the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali and on the Buddhadharma. All meditation techniques are taught in the traditional way, as transmitted to the teachers of the association by The Yoga Institute, Mumbai, and by the masters of the Tibetan and Theravada tradition.
The purpose of the practice:
With Yoga and Meditation, we operate a progressive holistic transformation of the body and mind, detoxifying the physical and energetic body and eradicating the negative mental attitudes that are the root cause of our suffering. This transformation path is based on the objective described in the second verse of Patanjali’s Yoga-Sutra: “Yogah Citta Vritti Nirodhah” & “Yoga is the Suspension of Mental Processes.” This transformation will awaken the qualities always present in us of love, compassion and wisdom. We will also learn to relax and rest the mind and thus make our daily life more purposeful and meaningful.
The meetings are held every day from Monday to Friday in three-time slots: morning, afternoon and evening. On Saturday mornings, themed seminars are held to learn about yoga and meditation. Soon we will start the first two-year training course for practitioners/teachers certified by The Yoga Institute, Mumbai.
