Deepen into Yoga Practice.

The Advanced Yoga Sadhana Program is wise progression through yoga, starting with the tools of Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga, which allow us to see where we are, and finishing with the tools of Classical Yoga and Tantra, which take us to the final goal.

The final goal is often forgotten in our culture. Are we focused on getting a fit body, flexible hamstrings or achieve handstands in the middle of the room? These may be possible side effects of practice, but they are not the purpose of it.

According to the ancient texts, the goal of yoga is to experience the authentic Self — the one free of doubt, fear, conditioning and limitations — and be sustained in that experience. This is big S self we are talking about. The deepest, core, most authentic Self who is yearning to live fully in this world.

These ancient wisdoms — the ones that help navigate the dark-times as well as connect us to our brilliant light — is the foundation of the Advanced Yoga Sadhana course. It is based on the yoga philosophies that are grounded in living a fulfilled, free and embodied life.

These classes are not about giving a good work out or helping someone achieve an externally prescribed form. They are about empowering individuals to connect to their own authentic integrity, from the inside out. It has been 10 years in the making, and I’m thrilled to share it with this community. I hope you will join me in this journey.
