What is the pace, flow, and style of Sadhana yoga?
Sadhana Yoga means yoga as a spiritual practice. We offer two variations of asana practice that are a blend of various traditions. The Vinyasa Flow practice is derived mainly from Ashtanga yoga and is a fast-paced flow. The second is a Hatha practice derived from Sivananda tradition, which is more meditative with longer held poses. Both sequences together provide you with a great foundation to build any type of yoga class upon.
How many actual hours of yoga would we be doing a day?
We do a 2 hour asana practice in the morning and in the afternoon we do 2-3 hours of asana workshop. So total asana each day is 4-5 hours of practice and workshops.
