The DharmaYoga series is a unique selection of 58 postures broken down and woven together in a 60 minute class. It can best be described as heated, therapeutic flow yoga. The attention to alignment and breath awareness safely stretches the bodies of all students, clears their minds and promotes detoxification. Done in a heated room (99-100F), postures flow from one to the next so the series is a strengthening, cardiovascular workout. Class begins and ends in a silent room in Silence Pose. Your teacher begins class by setting up the class intention and guiding you through breath work. Each teacher brings their unique view and style to class so sometimes you’ll hear music and see all of the postures in the series and sometimes class will be spent on fewer postures with no music. All classes begin and end on time.
The Cycle Stable is where we ride. The high ceiling brick room used to house horses but we traded them in for Schwinn IC Pro20 bikes, a wall of mirrors and lots of candles. Guided by intention, we move as one to the beats of great music in this 45-60 minute, full-mind-body-soul indoor cycling class! Your teacher wears a microphone and leads you through drills and intervals (some including weights to tone arms and core) in language you can hear and understand. We work on a 1-10 scale with resistance (1 being least difficult, 10 being the most difficult) so you move at your own pace and get the best workout no matter what your experience level.
Each Schwinn IC Pro20 has a fresh hand towel over its handlebars, 2 water bottle holders, a set of weights and Triple Link pedals which fit 95% of cycle shoes for your convenience. Cycle shoe rentals are $3 and free to our members.
Arrive 10 minutes early before your first ride to get custom fitted on your bike by the Dharma Family. They’ll show you how to use your resistance and breaks, adjust your seat and handlebar height, teach you how to do it and help you clip in your shoes. If you do not want to use cycle shoes they’ll clip cages onto your pedals so you can wear indoor sneakers. Each bike has a set of 3 pound dumbbells on it for use during class, if you would like to use 5 or 8 pound weights, just let your Dharma Family team member know and they’ll switch them out for you!
All classes are dimly lit by candles and overhead lighting and begin and end on time. There is never a clock in the Cycle Stable.
