Sri Dharma is first and foremost a spiritual teacher. He always says "without yama and niyama, there can be no success". Ahimsa is the foundation of everything he teaches and practices. Yes, he can perform amazing physical feats, but he is the first to say"that is just for fun". He is a living master and the holiest being I've ever had the honor to be near.
I believe that Dharma Mittra is a great asana master. But yoga masters are spiritual teachers, not acrobats.
There is no one in Sri Dharmajis league.
He is the hidden treasure of Yoga in the United States.
Let he contiue to share his love of the teachings for many many years to come. He is the honest to God real deal.
Sri Dharma Mittra has touched the lives of thousands of truth seeking souls in the most humble and loving manner. Those who are wowed by his postures, are even more so by his personality. If you have a chance to see him, it's highly recommended.
I had the pleasure of taking Dharma Mittra's class at the Boston YJC. It was the most "authentic" class of the conference. I enjoyed the inclusion of many aspects of the practice. I have been listening to one of his CD's during my daily commute and have found it incredibly centering.
Many years ago I was being destroyed with anxiety attacks. They controlled every aspect of my life. My Dr. who was a wise old man suggested Yoga and Meditation classes. This was in Phoenix. This has literally saved my life . How would we purchase Dharma Mittra's, 908 Yoga Asana Poster. What a great and wonderful way of life Yoga has become, I was looking for self realization and found it. I lost all 3 of my children. Some how thru Yoga and God I survived. I love this magazine too.

I have been practicing yoga for many years. It wasn't until I took my first class with Dharma Mittra at Omega Conference November 2007 that I had a profound experience. I cannot describe it but, I can say he is the most genuine, loving and honest yoga teacher I have ever encountered. I feel honored to have been his student for only 2 hours and I hope to practice with him again. He is just truly amazing.
I now live upstate New York, but back in the 70's my design studion was on 54th street, just two block down from the Yogi Gupta ashram on 56th treet. I spent eack luch hour, each day of the week at yoga class, and most likely saw Dharma Mittra, not knowing his name at that time. It was the greatest few years of my life. They moved and I then became affiliated with Sivananda Yoga Vendanta center of Swami Vishnudevnanda in the 20's.
