Sadhana

Morning Sadhna is a devotional (not religious) practice within Kundalini Yoga. It is a daily spiritual practice designed to allow oneself to turn inward and perceive ourselves and life more clearly, before diving into the busyness of your day.

It’s how early in the morning?!

Sadhna is done during the 2 1/2 hours before the rising of the sun. The angle of the sun to the earth during this time is also very fortuitous and our biorhythms are more favorable for mental and emotional cleansing.

Morning Sadhna is a devotional (not religious) practice within Kundalini Yoga. It is a daily spiritual practice designed to allow oneself to turn inward and perceive ourselves and life more clearly, before diving into the humdrum of the day.

It is led by our teachers who volunteer to hold space for all who join them. Sadhna begins with a specific sound current called “ Jaap Ji Sahib”. People either just sit up and meditate to it or join along in the chant, if they have memorized it. This is followed by a Yoga set. Please note that this a very quiet devotional time and the yoga set is not as instructional as a regular class and people follow the Sadhna leader in the exercises to the best of their capacity.

After a brief relaxation, the group gets into chanting a series of 7 chants, designed to attune our mental, emotions and subtle energies to a frequency that allows us to awake, aware, sensitive and strong. Most people walk out of Sadhna feeling cleansed, uplifted and happy.

Why do we practice a sadhna for forty days?

The main reason for do something every single day for forty days is it ingrains the new discipline. It becomes part of who you are and what you do and it’s actually difficult to stop at the end! The main benefits of Sadhna are:

  • Commitment – doing sadhana every morning, setting as a priority “no matter what” says that you want to deepen your personal growth, understanding of life and conscious evolution. You are placing your state of being first and understanding all your experience in your day are influenced and flow from your mental, emotional and physical state of being. We can set a true state and engage life from there.
  • Discipline – the mind and ego are wily, trickster and will use all kinds of excuses to try and keep you from creating a disciplined practice of connecting and developing the Self. Committing to Sadhna every single day builds discipline as we learn not to listen to the mind and the ego.
  • Evolution – you’re either changing and growing as a person, or you’re stagnating. Do you want to tap into your inner potential? Morning Sadhana is one way to make sure that every single day is just a little bit better than the last one, no matter what else is going on in your life.
  • Foundation – a Sadhna is like tilling a garden and planting a seed. Every day of practice you support an environment for your essence to sprout and blossom. Sadhana helps you find your foundation……your essence and express and grow from there.
