Welcome to a new group of yoga

My name is Dmytro Danylov.
I am starting a new class in Yogic Esoterics. Modern yoga is full of bright pictures and inverted postures, but there is more to this tradition.

I have been teaching yoga for over 16 years. I taught many people in different countries. I have studied yoga in Indian jungles and in refined European yoga-studios. I have done academical research and defended my Ph.D. thesis on the history of meditation in yoga (dhyāna). Nevertheless, I know that studying yoga without understanding the core of its esoterics is pointless.

That is why I plan to have a class on Esoterics of Yoga in October. Without understanding this aspect of the ancient spiritual Indian tradition, you will never understand the principals of asanas, pranayamas, meditations and its goals.

I am inviting you to join my class. We will go over the structure of human consciousness, principals of yogic psychology, we will talk about yogic variety of psycho-practices and its esoterical approach to the spiritual development of the practitioner.

We start on 9th of October, Monday, at 18:30 CET. Our classes will be held in Zoom. For the first class you will need paper and pen, or its digital equivalent. Later on we will need a yoga-matt and comfortable clothes.
