From the Founder

Most of us approach our yoga in a haphazard way—we practice yoga only when it is convenient or desirable to us. While this approach is acceptable for a householder, it will be difficult to attain, or even taste, the unitive state of yoga without a more robust level of dedication, intention and practice. To truly deepen your yoga experience you will need a sadhana, a personalized plan to practice and accomplish your spiritual goals.

A sadhana does not need to be fancy or difficult—it only requires something you can pour your whole heart into practicing. Your sadhana should be challenging and engaging but it should also bring you joy, peace and a sense of purpose. Ideally a sadhana is a daily practice. I recommend committing to a minimum of 40 consecutive days for your first sadhana to experience the benefits and rewards of this level of dedication.
