Dharma Yoga Evanston
The experienced instructors at Dharma Yoga Evanston—some influenced by the teachings of yoga superstar Sri Dharma Mittra—facilitate physical challenges and spiritual awakenings during classical Hatha yoga classes and special events such as Sanskrit courses. Like evening newscasts, yoga classes last between 60 and 90 minutes and explore the benefits of deep-breathing techniques. Dharma Gentle instructors welcome beginners with a series of gentle, traditional poses that focuses the mind while working to strengthen muscles. Students can progress through Dharma I, II, III, and IV, a study that culminates in advanced moves such as headstands and backbends. The studio also hosts Anusara-inspired routines whose mindful moves melt stress and icebergs of tension.
