Sadhana is a Sanskrit term used to refer to a daily spiritual practice. Sadhana represents a disciplined surrendering of the ego, in which the practitioner uses tools such as asana, pranayama and meditation regularly.
The Sadhana Continuing Education and Practice Series is designed for advanced level yoga students who have completed both the 200h and 300h Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training programs at Energie EnCorps.
The main purpose of this program is to create an ongoing practice and learning space for our most advanced students to deepen their Ashtanga Yoga Practice. 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 about staying on the path of yoga. This group is designed to keep the spirit 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. This is a recognized Yoga Alliance YACEP Continuous Education Program.
This year the focus will be on the INTERMEDIATE SERIES OF ASHTANGA YOGA.
