Our Dharma

The extent of possibility has been realized and successfully transcended by many men and women that have lived before us. They exposed through their accomplishments, an infinite canvas upon which dreams, ideas, and aspirations could be reached out to and painted by anyone who dares to believe in manifesting the impossible against all declared human and mortal inevitability. Whatever your goal, aspiration, dream, idea, or thought, it is possible and you are here at.

Dancing With Dharma will endeavor to place the impossible in the palm of your hands. The potential of possibility is governed by the extent and depth of the mind that created its initial existence. From a single thought can manifest a world of transcendence and infinity. The taste of infinity lay softly betwixt the lips of a healed, sound, and agile mind and body. Our dharma is to love, to heal, to share knowledge and wisdom, to be a light where there is darkness, and to have faith that beauty is for everyone and everything.

If you surrender to your dharma, you are free from all repetition. If it is a key that you find, then pass it on. Dancing With Dharma will give you everything they have and know so that you may too give to others with a great responsibility toward the authentic and original teachings of yoga and healing.

This yoga teacher training has a limited capacity of five students. Just as the teachers of old, Dancing With Dharma believes it is important to focus on smaller groups so that a higher concentration of vigilance and attention to could be given to your journey throughout and a higher amount of personal treatments in Reiki and bodywork.

In Negombo, you will experience the beauty and serenity of the sea as you will train in a private villa with a private beach and boats to explore the area. Then on to the ancient kingdom of Polonnaruwa, you will immerse your training fully into the energetic surroundings of temples, monuments, and ancient local historic culture. Dancing With Dharma methodologies toward the yogic sciences are deep-rooted in the ancient teachings of all three periods of modern yoga history.
