Join us for the New England Yoga Teacher Training
July 8 – 31, 2017
Join Sadhana Yoga School at Bethel Farm in Hillsborough, NH. In this serene landscape, we will live together in community, sharing all aspects of daily life while incorporating the wisdom of yoga into each step.
Bethel Farm is a unique place that offers a special opportunity to live on the land and with nature as you take rest from your everyday life and immerse yourself into the practice of yoga. All of our food is vegetarian and prepared with loving hands. Our vegetable garden nourishes us as often as possible and the food is always fresh. We share two main meals per day, with a light snack at lunch time.
There are many great moments to share at Bethel Farm: from sunning on the dock to tending the garden, to swimming and sauna, to climbing Mt Monadnock and trips to town, there is something for everyone to participate in on the free time during the training. Bethel Farm invites you to let go of all of your daily responsibilities and step into the quiet stillness of mother nature, enjoying the summer sun, allowing her to nourish you, guide you back to the home in your heart.
We Teach Sadhana Yoga
The Yoga of Spiritual Practice
We use Patanjali’s Eight-Fold Path (Ashtanga Yoga) as our guide in how we teach the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual benefits that are accessible through daily practice. Our program includes asana (postures), meditation, pranayama (breath work) mantra (chanting of Sanskrit) as well as the study of yoga philosophy.
The Sadhana Vinyasa Flow is the yoga of spiritual practice based on the Ashtanga vinyasa tradition. Each pose is typically held between five to ten breaths followed by a breath-controlled vinyasa leading to the next pose. In this sequence we move with fluidity, buoyancy, strength, and vigor.
The Sadhana Hatha Flow is the yoga of spiritual practice based on the classic Sivananda tradition. After Sun Salutations warm-ups, postures are held for a space of time. By integrating breath and intention, each pose becomes a pose of meditation.
