WELCOME TO DHARMA SHALA
“Dharma – one’s true path in life Shala – the house of learning”
Dharma Shala Yoga School was established in 2002. The School’s lineage is based on the 8 limbs of yoga and has been greatly influenced by the Sivananada teachings, the Ashtanga practice and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Traditionally, every yoga class at Dharma Shala followed a strict and structured sequence. Today however, class teachings follow a free-flowing classical vinyasa sequence that is steeped in mindfulness and breath awareness. At Dharma Shala Bondi Yoga School, we teach beginners, vinyasa, variations of yin, alignment, prenatal, mums 'n bubs, kids and pre-schoolers. Each class brings a holistic approach to the practice with avenues to explore pranayama and chanting with time for reflective meditation.
At Dharma Shala we invite you to participate in group silent meditation time. You may use a technique of your choice ie Hindu Veidic Mantra, Buddhist, Mindfulness etc. If you have never meditated before, the teacher can offer you guidance to develop a self practice during this time.
All teachers of Dharma Shala are highly experienced and passionate. Each teacher contributes to the school’s comprehensive range of classes through their unique style and speciality, making Dharma Shala one of the most diverse schools for yoga practice in Sydney.
