Hatha Yoga Sadhana

 

This Hatha Yoga Sadhana Course is a seven day program to help prepare students for the full two week Sadhana Intensive course which was devised by Swami Vishnudevananda based on his own hatha yoga sadhana in the Himalayas. He said that six months of this intensive practice gave him the energy to carry out his mission of spreading the teachings of yoga in the West for next 40 years.  This course combines both group practice and individual self-practice divided into two or three sessions per day. The emphasis is on intense and prolonged pranayama. Students work towards three to four hours of pranayama per day.
