The philosophy of the Sadhana program is to cultivate consistency and a learning space for our most advanced students. The group would consist of dedicated students committed to the idea of the sangha (community) that practices, shares, and learns together.
Discipline is the hardest part of staying on the path of yoga. This group is meant to keep the spirit and fire of yoga alive, to create a sense of community and accountability to one another. It is designed to help one another stay committed and to develop a personal sadhana (practice).
This is an ongoing continuous education program that students may participate in year after year. Topics may vary from year to year, but will always be layered upon the principles of Ashtanga Yoga. This is a recognized Yoga Alliance YACEP Continuous Education Program.
