Bhakti Yoga Practice 

In this transformative training, I will be guiding participants through the profound and integrative devotional practices of Sattva Yoga, as imparted by the esteemed Anand Mehrotra. This comprehensive approach to yoga is accessible to practitioners of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced yogis.

Our journey together in Sattva Yoga will encompass a rich tapestry of spiritual elements:

  • Kriyas: These are elevating movements, designed to activate and balance your energy centers, fostering a deeper connection with your inner self.
  • Asanas: The physical postures in our practice will not only enhance your physical flexibility and strength but also serve as a conduit for spiritual growth and inner harmony.
  • Pranayama: These breath and energy practices are pivotal in Sattva Yoga. They are instrumental in harmonizing the flow of prana (life energy) throughout your body, leading to a state of profound inner peace and vitality.
  • Dhyana: Meditation practices in this tradition are designed to cultivate a deep sense of mindfulness and heightened awareness, guiding you towards elevated states of consciousness.

Sattva Yoga is a holistic practice, aiming to nurture and transform all levels of your being. Its impact is not just physical or mental, but deeply spiritual, facilitating healing, upliftment, and awakening. This style shares similarities with Kundalini Yoga as taught by KRI, known for its potent transformative effects.

A unique aspect of our practice will be the integration of deity-focused elements. By incorporating mantras, kriyas, and meditations tailored to various deities, we will deepen our connection with the essence of bhakti – the path of devotion. This approach not only enhances the physical and mental aspects of yoga but also enriches the spiritual experience, allowing for a more profound embodiment of the bhakti practice.

Join us on this journey to explore the depths of your being, to heal, awaken, and rise to elevated states of consciousness through the holistic and spiritually enriching practice of Sattva Yoga.
