[ CLASS DESCRIPTIONS ]

Dharma Yoga
also known as Dharma Mittra’s Shiva Namaskar Vinyasa
Sri Dharma Mittra’s Shiva Namaskar Vinyasa is a challenging and physically absorbing sequence that works
the body externally and stimulates the subtle layers within into harmony. This class is designed for all levels
and will include asana, pranayama and meditation.

Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini yoga is a very powerful, yet equally accessible kind of yoga. In every class we will do a kriya – a
series of postures that have been put together to reach a specific goal. It can be kriya for strengthening the
navel  centre, kriya for improving the digestion, etc. Every class finishes off with a meditation. These
meditations can also be very different, with some including mantras, some comprising mantras and
pranayama, and others combining mantras and movements. There are approximately 2,000 different kinds
of meditations in kundalini yoga. This practice delves deeply into strengthening of the mind.

Vinyasa | Lunar Flow
We will move in lunar manner reflecting the qualities of the moon: calm, peace, relaxation and
concentration with deep savasana and meditation.
For many of us, the stresses of the present have slowly depleted our lunar nature.  Stress causes over
hundreds of physiological shifts in the body from a shortening of breath to the release of cortisole in the
blood stream.  With our nervous system charted and over stimulated, an ongoing connection to a
relaxed and open state is disturbed.  Symbolically, most of us have no idea what phase the moon is in
on a daily basis.” 

Vinyasa | Solar Flow
Fire Practice to start the day honoring the sun, vital energy source of our planet.  We will embody
the movements of prana throughout the practice.  It’s Vinyasa – so simple.
Vinyasa style Yoga is a form hatha yoga style linking breath and movement involving flowing movement
through the series of poses. This breath-inspired practice focuses on how breath initiates all movement
to open the body to strength, flexibility and ease.

Meditation to Realize Your Power as a Woman

Sit in Easy Pose.

MUDRA: Place your hands in fists with your first two fingers extended straight up and together. Your ring and small fingers are held down by your thumb.  Raise your right arm straight up in the air, with no bend in the elbow and palm facing forward. Your right arm will be hugging your right ear. Place your left hand across your heart center, lower arm parallel to floor.

EYES: Closed.

MENTAL FOCUS: Make the body into a solid state. Make absolutely no movement, move no muscle. However mentally move your right arm in large circles, without actually physically moving your arm. (The direction of the circles does not matter.)

MUSIC: Rhythms of Gatka Drum tape by Matamandir Singh is played.

TIME: Given in class for about 2 minutes.

COMMENTS: “This meditation can help you to realize the power you have as a woman. If you can make your body physically standardized and have the mental power to cover the standard of it, you can move anything. What is it that moves? Mind over body. It’s a simple development. It’s something you should not forget.

If a female doesn’t know how the mind can conquer and work on a body, she shall never be in a position to work on her own children. You must know how to move an object, and you must know how to convey the subject; and you must know how to move the object and how to convey the subject of the mammal called male. These are the faculties and facilities given a female by God.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

Fire Tattva: The 2010 Global Meditation

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®


Fire is an important quality or element in the philosophy of yoga. From the formless manifold Being that is the Infinite to the dense form of finite existence there is a process of manifestation that moves from the most subtle to the gross and tangible. This transition occurs in 36 steps or tattvas. Each step or tattva is a state of Being. Fire is a major step in that process and as such is a pervasive potential, which manifests in differing degrees. Fire as an element encodes a transformative function inherent in the universe, which is experienced in particular functions throughout the body. Fire gives light. Light enables vision. Vision gives insight, perspective and projective potency. In terms of chakras, it is associated with the Third Chakra, the Manipura Chakra, which is often represented as an upward pointing triangle and the color red.

In the finite world of forms, fire is fed by fuel. Physiologically, it is the power of digestion and food is its fuel. Emotionally, it is passion and the fuel is the object of love or desire. Psychologically, it is known as personal will and the fuel is a goal. When fire is present it induces dynamic change, restlessness, and purification of the substance and form it presides in. Fire is increased with the practice and discipline of yoga. The Fifth Chakra supports this internal flame through the power of projection and by charging the space it can burn in with potential.

In the formless realm of experience, the fire tattva is prakasha, the brilliance of the soul, the insight and intuition of the mind and the presence of awareness. It is the light, which gives rise to forms.

This quality was described in an early lecture: “Saints and sages have taught mankind that whatever elements are found in the constitution of the Infinite Universe will also be found in the human body. The Universe is the entire Cosmos; and we are a microcosm of the entire Cosmos. If we were to take a thimbleful of sea water and examine it closely, we would find by chemical qualitative analysis that the constituents of the sea water in the thimble are identical to those of the vast ocean. Similarly, the constituents of our individual bodies are identical to those of the Universe. It would be a strange finding if some element were found inside the human body which differed from the elements of the Universe. For there is One Creator who has created this Creation; and all manifested things are born from the One Source of all.

Our personality is dependent on which of the five gross elements predominates in our nature. The agnigranthi, or fire center, manifests through the spleen, liver, pancreas, and adrenal glands. Just as the heat of the sun makes life possible on Earth, the heat of the agni tattva sustains life in the body. The day this internal fire goes out means death to the individual as surely as this world would die if the sun refused to shine. Persons with a supremacy of this agni tattva are very vigorous, full of perseverance, and become untiring workers. They have a wonderful capacity for leadership and a directness of manner and speech.”

– © The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, January 1, 1973

Fire is applied and refined in the meditative art of Traatik Yoga, sometimes called gazing. Students select a flame, a sacred object or the image of a teacher or saint to focus on. But it is more than gazing. Gazing in the West implies passivity with alertness. In yoga it is an active projection of the mind and self in order to merge with the existence and qualities of an object. If the focus is a flame, you increase the purifying capacity of the body and mind. Fire Traatik is used for healing. If the object is a teacher—like the Tantric photo of Yogi Bhajan—the meditator attunes to and “acquires the virtues” of the teacher. Certain objects are crafted with specific qualities that a meditator may wish to cultivate. This is the art of yantra—the use of form and image as energy. Performing traatik on an image of the Golden Temple links the state of the meditator to a profound healing space. The temple itself is designed with proportions and color that make it a perfect gateway for spiritual and healing traatik practice.

When the fire element is strong and integrated, in balance with the personality, it gives one bright eyes. The light of the soul is shown in the healing glance of the saint. Practice of traatik keeps vision healthy and gives the ability to see the subtle and unseen as well as the visible.

As we move toward the Aquarian shift we invite this quality of insight, will and leadership. The meditation we are practicing invokes the projective power of the chakras, from the Third and Fifth Chakras, and refines the use of light, fire and truth (satya) in the mantra. Let us gain clarity and will to walk the rest of the mile and deliver our heart and soul to a future of peace and blessings. Let us each be fully human and fully our Self.

By the blessings of our teacher and the power of the Naam,

Gurucharan Singh Khalsa, PhD
Director of Training
