Sadhana, deepening your daily yoga practice

Certificate Course 24 – 27 May 2024

Revitalize your yoga practice and turn it into a spiritual life-style
With Swami Jyotirmayananda

“Whatever spiritual practices you do, either Japa (the repitition of a mantra), the practice of asanas, meditation or pranayama, do it systematically and regularly every day. Sadhana is the real wealth. If you persist in your sadhana, if you are regular, systematic and punctual, you will attain success.” ~ Swami Sivananda


Sadhana is a systematic daily practice of yoga. Yoga offers a complete system for physical, mental and spiritual well-being and teaches techniques to find increased health, well-being and inner peace.

Our yoga practice deepens through regularity and continuity. An unbroken yoga practice helps remove inner obstacles and gives us the fortitude to stay cool, calm and collected when confronted with the everyday challenges of modern life.

We will study and practice classical yoga techniques to strengthen and harmonize body and mind and to reconnect to the inner self.
