- The teachers know the students and definitely care about the depth and nuances of the practice. A beautiful experience for body and soul! – tisaanders, Citysearch
- We had introductions at the beginning of class, which was the first time that I'd ever done that in a yoga class. I liked that. And we did partner yoga exercises too, so I got to meet new people as well. – Mazarine T., Yelp
At Dharma Yoga’s recently erected, 2,400-square-foot studio, flickering candlelight gives the earth-tone hues and gleaming hardwood floors an inviting glow. Like stumbling into a lounge-singer convention, the studio’s comforting vibes relax the mind with calming music as the band of certified instructors gently guides students of all experience levels through a series of healing physical postures. Though classes vary in style—ranging from vigorous early-bird Vinyasa flow to relaxing end-of-day Dharma nightcaps—each session explores traditional Indian yoga and Buddhist practices, referring to itself as an "awareness-based mindfulness and relaxation practice." Between the original Dharma Yoga and the new Dharma Yoga East Side, students can choose from 50 weekly classes, held throughout the day.
