Dharma Wheel


This class is taught by:

Anne Marie Gordon

Studio Director and Yoga Teacher
 
My interests in moving meditation practices began with Tai-Chi at 19. Since then, I’ve immersed myself in the study of self-realisation and yoga as a way to heal myself mentally and physically. These practices have made a remarkable difference in my life, and the experience continues to help me grow each day.

 

Growing up with a fast-paced, constant-driving, coffee-drinking, standard New York diet and lifestyle kept me frazzled and depressed. Finding the discipline of yoga was the perfect calling to bring energizing activity, compassionate thinking, and spiritual vitality back to my life.

 

In 2011, I completed my Hot Yoga training at Yoga Oasis, N.Y., moved to Sheffield with new goals and challenges, and began manifesting my ideal of studying with Sri Dharma Mittra.  
 
Now, I am grateful to have completed the 500hr Life of a Yogi training with him and the skilled teachers at the Dharma Yoga Center.  This training solidified my understanding of the practice, and continues to be the foundation on which I live my life.  
 
Every day, I continue to pursue my interests in yogic philosophy, nutritional vegan eating, being positively active, actively calm, and living according to the Yoga Sutras.

 

I’m excited to share the wisdom learned from various teachers and yoga styles to bring consciousness and gratitude everywhere.

This is a special class designed to introduce the Dharma Yoga Wheel, and how it is used it to:

“Open the entire back, open the shoulders, aligns the spine, relax muscles, expand the chest, stretch the hip flexors, and quadriceps. “

We will flow through some warm ups and poses from the Dharma Yoga Wheel sequences. This will enable you to learn how to warm up properly using the wheel, and explore the areas of your body that will receive the most benefit from the DYW.

This beautiful tool was created by Sri Dharma Mittra, enjoyed by many of his students at the center in New York, and is now marketed by his son, Yogi Varuna for worldwide use. While it is specifically aimed at loosening the back muscles and offering a support for developing backbends, the DYW is a Yogi’s best friend for support in a variety of postures.
