Are you sick of your old patterns holding you back from living up to the potential you know that is deep inside of you? Do you want to let go of your limiting beliefs and start showing up for yourself in a BIG way?
Let me introduce you to Sadhana ~ one of the greatest gifts in my life that has brought me inner stability, awareness, compassion, love, insight, energy ... and so much more than words can express.
Sadhana is the Sanskrit word that means to tune. It is a spiritual practice that you do every day to tune yourself into the frequency/vibration that you are wanting to cultivate in your life.
So, just like when a radio gets static, you need to tune in to find clarity; and it’s the same way with ourselves! During a sadhana practice, we are tuning our body, energy, and mind every day to stay clear.
Simply put, a sadhana is a daily spiritual practice that keeps you in tune with yourself.
There are many different types of spiritual practices that you can do and you can do it at any time of day. I personally believe it’s best to do in the morning because then you set the foundation for your day ~ you are starting your day from a very grounded and uplifted space rather than a chaotic space.
If you are interested in learning how to cultivate a sadhana for yourself ~ OR you want to learn how to guide others in a sadhana ~ consider signing up for my 100-hour Beyond the Asana Training, where we will be learning several practices that can be used in Sadhana. These practices are powerful and transformational. Training begins April 30. Learn more here.
Commiting to a sadhana is truly a practice of self devotion and self love. When you show up for yourself in this way on a daily basis, you get to know yourself more deeply, becoming familiar with your patterns and how you treat yourself. Do you abandon yourself? Do you give up on yourself? Or maybe you see how dedicated you are to your growth, your evolution and opening to a place of compassion!
Sadhana is really an opportunity to cultivate a relationship with yourself and is one of the greatest gifts that you can give yourself and your loved ones. If or when you can show up for yourself you can show up for others.
A spiritual practice can consist of a variety of things. For me it is pooja, breathwork, kriya and meditation. When I first began my Sadhana, it lasted about 20 to 30 minutes; but over the years, it has expanded ~ and I truly feel the best if I get 90 minutes in.
If you are ready to show up for yourself in a big way, please reach out. I can help you find a Sadhana practice that is tailored to whatever it is you are looking to achieve in your life and also teach you how to provide this for your students if you are a yoga teacher!
OR, if you aren't a yoga teacher but have been feeling called to teach, you can also receive your 200-Hour YTT Certification through my Beyond the Asana program. Learn more here.
