What is Sadhna?

Finding its roots in the Sanskrit word ‘Sadh’ meaning ‘to achieve’, Sadhna is one of the most profound and spiritually-awakening yogic practices.  It is for yoga practitioners who are ready to take their spiritual journey to the next level. 

Sadhna for the Soul Program Highlights

Learn how to create a personalized Sadhna practice that resonates with and enhances your spiritual path. You will explore a variety of elements such as mantra, meditation, pranayama, and devotion. This exploration will allow you to incorporate the practices that make you feel more connected with the spiritual side of your yoga practice.

Delve further into the ancient yogic texts that you explored during your 200-hour yoga teacher training. Gain more wisdom and insight from the ancient teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras, and Upanishads, that form the philosophical and spiritual foundations of yoga. These texts will act as a guide to living a life with Sadhna.
Sadhna is focused on self-introspection as a way to uncover your own truth and wisdom. Meditation and mindfulness can foster this self-awareness, leading to greater inner peace, and helping to break down limiting beliefs and heal emotional wounds.
