“ Getting up in the morning for sadhana is totally a selfish act – for personal strength, for personal intuition, for personal sharpness, for personal discipline, and over and all, for personal absolute commitment.”
~ Yogi Bhajan
Special Summer Sadhana:
Sat Nam! All that is stated below “Usual” or “Aquarian Sadhana” is continuing, AND a small group will have an additional early morning practice (in the main studio, wood floor) July 17-August 26. It will be JapJi followed by 2.5 hours of chanting Long Ek Ong Kar, or “morning call”

Globally we do this practice, as students of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings, on his birthday, August 26. Some enthusiasts do it as a 40 day practice leading up to his birthday.
It is ok to come late, nap during, or come when you can to either early morning practice.
“Usual” Morning Sadhana aka Aquarian Sadhana: is a beautiful way to begin your morning and set the course for your day so that you leave feeling clear, uplifted, and inspired. We begin each morning in the amrit vela at 3:40am with the recitation of Japji, a sacred poem written by the first Guru, Guru Nanak. “Jap means to repeat, and Ji means soul. The repetition of Japji gives you a consistent projection and allows you to access your own infinite source of inspiration and depth.” From 4:00am to 5:00am we practice an hour of Kundalini Yoga, and from 5:00am to 6:00am we meditate with music to the chanting of the Aquarian Sadhana Chants.
**Sunday mornings begin one hour later at 4:40am with Japji.
There is no cost for Morning Sadhana, and you are very welcome to show up at anytime during the 2.5 hours!
Please be mindful of the sensitivity at this time of day: avoid loud noises when you arrrive, and do not wear any scents or perfumes when you’re attending Sadhana.
If you are unable to join us, but would really like to participate, please check the Yoga at the Ashram Facebook page for cached and current live video of Sadhana.
