$0.00 Aquarian Sadhana

Aquarian Sadhana is a yoga and meditation practice that includes an opening meditation or prayer, about 45 minutes of Kundalini Yoga, and then 62 minutes of beautiful chanting. We start during the hours of the "amrit vela" - the predawn time, where stillness abounds and we can tune into our universal connection with all beings. This practice is joyful, uplifting, and transformative.

Free and open to all.

The Aquarian Sadhana is practiced by Kundalini Yoga communities across the world. Doing sadhana in a group develops group consciousness. A group sadhana practice amplifies the impact of the meditation.

Nandi Gabremedhin

Nandi Gabremedhin is a KRI Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Instructor, graduate of Lighthouse Yoga Center’s KRI Teacher Training Program. Nandi took her first yoga class more than 11 years ago in a Saturday program at her son’s school. With that first class she felt more positive, peaceful and happy and then found a place to take regular classes. As her practice developed, she felt there was still something missing – she wanted to learn to meditate, which led Nandi to Kundalini Yoga & Meditation.

Initially she thought she’d just take classes for herself, but then knew fairly soon she wanted to become a teacher to share the benefits of which she so abundantly received. Through her own practice and teachings, Nandi found that Kundalini Yoga has been a way to dig deeper and uncover more of herself and her own power, becoming more focused and disciplined in developing her spirituality. With life and all that comes, the maintenance must continue, which is the main reason Nandi keeps her practice strong. Kundalini has allowed her to truly see more and has allowed for more uplifting connections with others a more enriching one. Nandi’s classes facilitate experiences for individuals to find their own power, overcome personal challenges, shed the old skin and grow anew by uncovering the divine energy within and illuminating peace, light and love that inspires others thru example and energy.
