As Flatiron and Chelsea denizens know, our neighborhood is home to all kinds of businesses and operations – tech, digital media, restaurants, you name it – and they all use the most cutting-edge approaches to promoting themselves. So, it was no surprise when it came to Flatiron Hot! News’s attention that our own Dharma Yoga Center on 61 West 23rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues is promoting a worldwide event to bring the benefits and techniques of yoga to everybody’s attention – namely by encouraging a series of special yoga sessions where yoga aficionados will stand on their heads, yoga-style, to promote world peace – a worthy goal, of course! For devotees, the personal and societal benefits of yoga, including the position of standing on one’s head, are obvious. Therefore, the Center’s well-known proprietor and yoga master, Sri Dharma Mittra, based in London, will be leading a global joint session directing the effort with his Flatiron-based site and other locations joining in the fun! As we are told:
Looking for a yogic way to spread the word that love is the answer? Get inverted! To raise awareness for world peace, world-famous yogi Sri Dharma Mittra and yoga teacher Mark Kan will attempt to gather the most people ever in Headstand at Lord’s Cricket Ground in Marylebone, London, on Sunday March 5th, from 2–4 p.m. local time.
“If you practice any aspect of yoga for selfish reasons, it’s not really yoga at all, according to The Bhagavad-Gita,” Mittra tells Yoga Journal. “Anytime we are able to make our practice an offering, our practice becomes really powerful. Experiencing this leads to lots of enthusiasm to pursue and keep at it. The secret of success in yoga practice is constant practice. Success in practice will lead to inner peace, which will have a great effect on everything, eventually leading to peace for all, everywhere.”
So, those who interested in the UK can sign up for the entire Dharma Mittra weekend package or for the specific event, CHARGING PRACTICE with Enhanced Pranayama, on Sunday, March 5th, from 2–4 p.m (£55, about $68). Can’t make it to London? You can help Dharma Mittra raise awareness for world peace by either attending a simultaneous session at the Flatiron location or posting your headstand via social media @dharmayoganyc and @indabayoga using the hashtag #turnlondonupsidedown.
Good luck to the Yogi and his followers – we need world peace now more than ever!
