  • Community Sadhana
  • "What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. It is something which you want to do, have to do, and which is being done by you. … Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best."

    ~Yogi Bhajan

    Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. It is the foundation of all spiritual endeavor. Sadhana is your personal, individual spiritual effort. It is the main tool you use to work on yourself to achieve the purpose of life. It can be done alone or in a group. Sadhana is whatever you do consistently to clear your own consciousness so you can relate to the infinity within you. Before you face the world each day, do yourself a favor and tune up your nervous system and attune yourself to your highest inner self. To cover all your bases, it will include exercise, meditation, and prayer.

    During what are called the “ambrosial hours” (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), when the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the Earth, the energy you put into your sadhana gets maximum results. Your world is quieter. It’s easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. If you absolutely cannot get up early in the morning to do sadhana, then do it some other time! Doing sadhana at any time of the day or night will benefit you. (Kundalini Yoga: The Flow of Eternal Power by Shakti Parwha Kaur)

    Develop a regular sadhana and you take control of your life. Develop a deep sadhana and you open the doors of experience. Commit to meet your higher Self each morning and your decisions and your life become original; your life will bear the signature of your soul; your radiance will express the meaningful intimacy of the Infinite in each moment. Immerse yourself in the joy of victory that comes from starting each day with a powerful sadhana and every challenge becomes opportunity. (Sadhana Guidelines)

  • Kundalini Yoga and Meditation
  • Yoga is a spiritual practice yoking the body, the mind, and the spirit. Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness, delivers you to YOU by clearing and balancing the chakras while building strength and releasing the energy located at the base of your spine. In this class you will focus on breath (pranayama), physical movement (asana), chanting (mantra) and meditation.
     
    Kundalini yoga is the pathway to a happy and healthy life through balancing the blood and brain chemistry, and creating a flow of feel-good hormones in the body. Meditation brings us to state of peace by connecting to the divine within. Ancient technologies for modern times!
