DHARMA YOGA WORKSHOP WITH BRENDAN LENTZ:
Thursday, June 18th 6:30-7:45pm
Join Brendan Lentz of Dharma Yoga Center, NYC and the Flex Yoga Wooster community for a special extended class suitable for all levels of experience! Brendan Lentz is a devoted student of Sri Dharma Mittra, based in New York City. From his first visit to the Dharma Center in 2007, Brendan was immediately impressed by the challenging physical practice and Sri Dharma’s humor and compassion.
He has been studying with Sri Dharma ever since, and in that time has
held a variety of roles at the Dharma Yoga Center, from sweeping floors to substitute teaching for Sri Dharma Mittra. Brendan is grateful to have received these teachings directly from a living yogi, and excited to share the techniques with both new and experienced yoga students.
After living in New York City for 10 years he left in 2014 to travel across the
US and around the world. While traveling he has been teaching yoga, assisting with yoga events and furthering his knowledge of partner yoga. He plans to attend an 800-hour immersion with Sri Dharma Mittra in 2015 and continue to share the knowledge he has received. It is his hope that all students immediately experience the physical and spiritual benefits of asana, pranayama, meditation and partner yoga.
In addition to yoga asanas (postures) Brendan will share instruction on pranayama (self-realization techniques) and yoga nidra (deep relaxation). These classical yogic practices will support radiant health and calmness of mind. Class will end with an extended yoga nidra meditation, in which you will be guided through a process of deep relaxation while resting comfortably on your back.
No experience necessary, all are welcome!
Dharma yoga is a meditative, yet challenging, system of Hatha-Raja yoga. Emphasizing good health, a clear mind, and a kind heart, Dharma yoga teachings adapt classical devotional practice to today’s modern life. With regular practice and by observing the ethical rules (yamas and niyamas) these techniques facilitate the gradual settling of the mind, ultimately enabling one to experience of self-realization.
