Amrit Yoga Posture Class:  

Our teachers are  trained and experienced in many styles of Yoga that go beyond the postures and into the deeper experience of Yoga Consciousness:  letting go of stress, life’s tensions and struggle in our daily lives.  We have all studied in Kripalu, Sivananda, or Amrit yoga styles.  Come and experience Yoga in the tradition of India. See the following websites for more info:

Hemi-Sync Meditation:  

A meditative class that takes you to a Yoga Nidra meditative state that the Monroe Institute refers to as Focus 10, body deeply relaxed and asleep, Mind and Consciousness wide awake and alert.  We use relaxation techniques and special Hemi-Sync sound frequencies with headsets and the comfort of air mattresses to enter a deeply meditative and rejuvenating state of mind. We use this Focus 10 state to expand and explore our Consciousness and Awareness.

Restorative Yoga
:   

A class designed to “restore” a sense of balance, peace, and well being, physically and emotionally by placing and holding our bodies in supported, relaxing postures so we can really learn to let go, quiet and calm our racing minds and soothe and release our tense tight muscles.  The object is to fully support the body so that the mind and nervous system can relax.  To relax is to rest deeply.

Chair Yoga:   

Chair Yoga would be helpful to any one wishing to try another way of bringing Yoga into your life.  Chair Yoga is a gentle yet powerful yoga style modifying Yoga Postures by either sitting in a chair or standing using the chair for support.  Like any yoga class it will help improve strength, flexibility, and balance. Movements are uncomplicated and easy to learn and is adaptable for all ages and fitness levels.

More Information on Yoga:

The following is at the heart of our Yoga practice and teachings that we have integrated into our personal practice. Use these Seven Principles to take you own Yoga to a deeper level that the usual "Exercise" Yoga that is available to the general public. 

Seven Integrative Principles of Amrit Yoga

 

Amrit Yoga teaches you to learn integration of all limbs of Ashtanga Yoga from the very beginning. Even though in the earlier stages, the attention is on the practice of physical postures, you begin to cultivate the internal focus that includes pratyahara and dharana. It is this internal focus that leads to greater awareness and energy in your daily life. In later stages, you deepen your practice by integrating pratyahara, dharana (concentration) and Dhyana (meditation), the components of Raja YogaThese seven principles and the techniques associated with them are what allows the practitioner to deepen their personal growth in. The principles outlined below and the simultaneous practice of all limbs of yoga is unique to Amrit Yoga.

 

Intention (Yamas and Niyamas) 
A clear intention is made in the form of a prayer before moving into the sequence.

 

Alignment (Asana)  
Anchoring
 the mind in the precise and proper form and technique of each asana using press points and energetic extensions. This will bring strength, flexibility, and nadi shuddhi cleansing of the energy channel of the spinal chord).

 

Breath Awareness (Pranayama) 
Breath reflects our inner state. By changing our breath, we can change our internal experience. Specific willful breathing supports nadi shuddhi. Conscious use of breath can pull us out of mental reaction and bring us back into pure body experience.

 

Inward Focus (Pratyahara) 
Feeling/body awarenessOnce a student knows the fundamentals of correct form and execution of each asana they can begin to focus on feeling the body sensation in the asana and in between poses. Awakening the feeling center is a key component of Amrit Yoga. The feeling center is in the third eye/ Pineal Gland on the back side of the brain stem.

 

Concentration (Dharana) 
Becoming fully engaged and absorbed in sensation in an unbroken stream of attention. At this stage we use body sensation as the focus point of meditation. Through focusing one-pointedly on sensation without labeling or choosing for or against we are prepared to enter into expanded meditative awareness. This focus is also the first tangible step in Self Observation.

 

Meditative Awareness (Dhyana) 
In execution of and release in between asana, there is the opportunity to be in the entire experience—fully aware without judgment. This is the experience of witness/meditation—which embraces everything and excludes nothing from our field of awareness. This is where we practice Swadyaya—self observation without judgment.

 

Integration (Samadhi) 
Integration takes place as we continue our meditative awareness through the second half of the pose in which we allow the energy released in the first half of the pose to grow and expand and be drawn upwards to the Third Eye—the point where all seemingly conflicting forces are resolved in the field of unity. When we disappear, sacred presence appears. This is true integration. Encountering resistances in the body, using the principles outlined above, has a therapeutic effect, returning body and mind to balance and integration.

Yoga and Meditation Classes

Yoga for Health

Yoga is a very old yet consistently relevant system of techniques designed to bring into balance all aspects of the body, mind, and personality so the individual can achieve his or her goals for health and personal growth. Yoga is a practical, safe and non religious system that benefits both men and women, regardless of age or physical condition. There are many schools of Yoga described in the traditional texts; the particular type of Yoga most familiar to Americans is Hatha Yoga, which refers to the physical exercises and breathing techniques designed to make the body healthy, strong and flexible.

The Dome Healing Center teaches a comprehensive and balanced program of Yoga that includes the Hatha Yoga exercises, relaxation and breathing techniques as well as meditation. Rather than stressing physical culture for its own sake, our core focus acknowledges the deeper possibilities of Yoga by teaching meditation and by encouraging the inner-directed awareness that eventually leads to greater self-knowledge. This reliance on individual experience and feeling is a central theme in the science of Yoga.

Our goal is to offer the highest quality Yoga instruction possible. In addition to regularly scheduled classes, we plan to offer instructional books and tapes, as well as private instruction.
