dharma yoga & sound  healing

Weekend Immersion with Shir Shemesh 

  September 27 - 29

Dive deep into your practice.


In this immersive weekend, we will explore healing through sound. What can modern science tell us about sound vibrations? How are sound vibrations treated in Yoga philosophy, and where do these paradigms intersect?


We will dive into practical Yogic methods for working with sound vibration. We will chant some of the primal sounds of the universe to unlock deeper states of mind, and playfully explore our voices and their ability to heal through chanting. We will read together from the Mandukya Upanishad, drawing inspiration from this ancient Yogic text about the power of the universal sound AUM.


This immersive weekend has been developed as a complement to teacher training courses. It is designed to help young teachers cultivate confidence and conviction in their own teachings by providing practical tools as well as opportunities to deepen one's own practice in different paths of Yoga. It is also well-suited to students who wish to prepare for a teacher-training course, and to be exposed to a more profound yogic lifestyle.


Dharma yoga is a heart opening and mind expanding yoga practice, based on the teachings of the legendary teacher Sri Dharma Mittra. This practice is designed for those wishing to advance through progressively more challenging asana practices. This practice is a mix of different Hatha and Vinyasa yoga styles, intended to stimulate all the energy centers of the body, unleashing the dormant forces within you.

About Your Teacher

For Shir, practicing yoga is like going into nature and breathing clean air after having been in the city for too long: “Yoga teaches that there is a lot of peace and joy inside each one of us that doesn’t depend on anything external. Yoga is a spiritual path for my life.”


Following his first teacher training, a transformative experience which helped him discover his life purpose, Shir embarked on a quest towards a more subtle experience of yoga. In his desire to understand how to truly strive towards yoga, Shir looked for a living master. At that time he found his Guru, Sri Dharma Mittra. Upon meeting him, Shir felt that many of his question about how to fully live yoga were answered. That meeting spurred Shir rapidly progress in his own Sadhana (practice of yoga towards self-realization). Shir completed advanced teacher training with Dharma Mittra, with an eternal feeling of gratefulness.


Music has been Shir’s primary passion and occupation since childhood, when he began playing the recorder and violin. Today he shares his love of music and his sense of divine consciousness by leading Kirtan sessions (chanting mantras). Shir is also inspired by the healing power of sacred sounds and loves to use them in his regular yoga classes.


Over the last 5 years he has traveled all over the world to teach and inspire. Since 2016, Shir has been leading various teacher trainings in yoga schools around the world, as well as independently.
