Sadhana day is an opportunity to spend some time to be intensively focus on your practices. With like mind individuals we come together and practice classical Hatha yoga series together under guided instructions.
We will start the day with Guru Pooja, by making offering to the teachers and masters who have made this knowledge available to us.
It is followed by guided practice for Angamardhana. We will go through the entire sequence. You will also receive corrections on spot. If you are not sure about certain postures or you have been out of practice for some time, this is the moment to catch up, without the need to go through 11 hours long workshop once again.
Afterwards we will go through three cycles guided practice for Surya Kriya. In the first cycle you will receive correction on the postures; for the second cycle, we will refresh the breathing mechanism once again; and, for the third cycle, we will practice Surya Kriya along with subtle body.
The next session we will be practicing Yogasanas by holding each of the posture for minimum of 30 seconds with once cycle only. It depends on the participants on the day, whether they have learned advanced postures or not. If not, we will practice only beginner sequence. Otherwise we will practice the entire sequence including the advanced postures. You will receive corrections on the postures throughout the guided practice.
After the Yogasanas session we will take a break, you can make use of this time to do Shoonya or Shambhavi Mahamudra meditation on your own.
Normally we do pot-luck lunch together for a light stomach. You are more than welcome to bring some vegetarian food to share with everyone. Please avoid to have anything with strong smell, onion, garlic and dairy. Fruits, nuts and salad are welcome. We will sit together share our experiences, laughters and have a good time.
After the lunch, depends on the weather and the number of the participants, we can go for a walk or have guided meditation or watch Sadhguru’s video together.
