Inspiration struck me to share such a potent practice with you all. The inspiration came to me through many students feedback stating they just didn’t have the discipline to stick to a consistent practice. I know how much I LOVE these 40 day Sadhanas and the beginning of the year is when I always do one so this year I offered it up and out and our first Sadhana was a great success.
I am now running 3 Sadhanas a year and next one begins October 3 – November 11th
I also realise the importance of having a daily practice and how much better I feel for it.
‘Sadhana (personal practice) is the cornerstone of the practice of yoga and the process of self-transformation.
Our sadhana, our spiritual practice, needs constant vigilance; old habits can be hard to break. Therefore we need to develop the muscle of self-motivation and will. We need to be willing to set aside time and to attend to the inner experience with the same enthusiasm we may attend visiting a new country for the first time.
Awake each morning with time to set up by aligning your energy, attitude and commitment for the day, and keep it up day after day. This consistency gives us steadiness and excellence over time and prevents us from getting swept up in a reactive mode to things around us. This daily practice also allows us to maintain our radiance and impact in life
In the Yogic tradition it’s believed that it takes 40 days to break any negative habits that block you from the expansion possible through breath, kriya or mantra.
Remember, a habit is a subconscious chain reaction between the mind, the glandular system and the nervous system. We develop habits at a very young age. Some of them serve our highest destiny. Some do not. By doing a 40, 90, 120 or 1000 day special sadhana, you can rewire that chain reaction. You can develop new, deeply ingrained habits that serve your highest good.’
I personally do a few 40 day practices / year and have done so for many years now. It gives me an anchor, a focus, peace & energy and so much more. I feel balanced and when I’m done I feel so good that I stuck to my commitment for the whole 40 days which is what builds integrity of character – keeping the word we make to ourselves most importantly and the most harmful to break.
We will work with a different practice each week. The practices will consist of small seated movements, pranayama (breathwork) and sometimes sound through using our voices to cleanse and clear our minds, bodies and spirits.

“All sadhana is meant to purify the mind and make the mind one-pointed and inward so it can be directed toward the centre of consciousness within the inner chamber of your being. Physical growth is in the hands of nature; mental growth and spiritual growth are in your hands.” – Swami Rama See less
