Rise For Sadhana!

Whether you are new to Yoga Phoenix or have been a long time student here, we welcome you and salute you for your dedication to your own well-being. Yogi Bhajan said, “Happiness is your birthright.” Yes! You can have it all! Believe it or not, you can live a healthy, happy, wholesome, prosperous, fulfilling life! Happiness is within your own grasp and we are here to provide you the tools that you can use to manifest your own happiness. 

Dear souls, remember that you are a powerful creative force! Go ahead, use the tools of Kundalini Yoga to rediscover your own power, your own magnificence. While you are at it, consider participating in morning sadhana. Do you know that the community here at Yoga Phoenix provides the service of morning sadhana? Every single morning of the year, rain or shine, even during holidays, we gather before sunrise to vibrate the cosmos. 

I know it sounds daunting. It could be a real challenge (or just plain crazy) to leave your warm, cozy bed to do yoga and meditation at 3:40am! However, consider this, if you can overcome sleep and rise before the sun does to work on your own consciousness, you can overcome any challenges in your life. 

Morning sadhana has so many benefits. The time period before the sun rises has the clearest energy and it is the perfect time for meditation, to clear out your mind, let go of your fears, worries, and stress. By doing that, you can face the new day with courage, grace, clear mind and positivity.  Also, by participating in morning sadhana you will gain a lot of energy to handle all the tasks and responsibilities of the day. It’s better than what a cup of coffee could give you! In addition to that, by taking part in morning sadhana, you are doing your body a huge favor. Doing yoga before the sunrise helps support the body’s cleansing process. 

Lastly, practicing sadhana is the ultimate approach to change:
“All these changes that you are seeing in your personality did not happen because you got counseled, or your teacher was great. You all changed because you wanted to change and did sadhana. Sadhana changed you. All this other stuff is being done to keep you going. This is a rational approach, not an ultimate approach. The ultimate approach is when you want to change, and you do sadhana. Then you shall change.” -----Yogi Bhajan 

When you practice sadhana, you are working on connecting with your true self which is your highest self. Who you are is the light inside you.

Please come attend sadhana for your own benefits:  
"Getting up for sadhana in the morning is a totally selfish act- for personal strength, for personal intuition, for personal sharpness, for personal discipline, and overall for absolute personal prosperity” --- Yogi Bhajan 

So come, ye bearers of light, come join us in morning sadhana. Come cleanse and renew yourself. You will rise like the phoenix, powerful, graceful, radiant, and magnificent!
