Sri Dharma Mittra's "Charging Practice" Online Video Workouts on Alo Moves
Difficulty—Advanced Copy Created with Sketch.

Charging Practice is a series of full-length asana practices that focus on two crucial elements of Dharma Yoga: self-exploration and mental concentration.

Sri Dharma Mittra is a living yoga legend who has dedicated over fifty years to the intense study and teaching of yoga. His powerful yet graceful approach blends the physical asana with breath-work and meditation.

In each strong, uplifting flow class Sri Dharma directs your awareness inward and teaches you to use the physical asana to enter a conscious and meditative state. You will stimulate body and brain by gently bending the spine and going upside down. The slow-moving sequences and long holds between poses allow for meditation and awareness on the Trikuti, the third eye. By learning to gather your mental and spiritual powers into your physical asanas, you will end each practice feeling calm, energized and spiritually inspired!

Psychic Sleep, also known as Yoga Nidra, is a conscious sleep where the physical body falls into the deepest state of relaxation while the mind remains fully conscious.

Psychic Sleep boasts all of the benefits of deep, restful sleep – you will feel physically and mentally recharged, rejuvenated and refreshed. But unlike natural sleep where your mind is not awake, Yoga Nidra offers inner exploration. Each lesson in this series begins by "shutting down" one part of the body at a time, allowing you to gather all of your focus and attention inwards towards the Real Self.

Yogic breathing, also known as Pranayama, is the fourth limb of yoga. This powerful practice is one of the most important in yoga because it deals with prana (energy).

In each breathing practice we purify the body by literally filling it with more oxygen, which enriches our blood and life force. By regulating the breath, we can control the speed of the heart and settle the mind, allowing us to be more conscious, connected and filled with bliss.

A consistent pranayama practice helps you connect to your physical and meditative practices and sense the interconnectedness of all things.
