Svadharma Sessions + Immersion

Overview

Sva = own   •   dharma =path

Over one week, we’ll recommit (or just commit) to a pre-dawn practice including meditation, pranayama, asana, bhakti, and dharma talks.

This is an opportunity to begin again, to clarify intention, to hone our focus for the year and to allow discipline to disrupt distractions and live our yoga practice through our actions. As we clarify our intentions, we remember our soul’s deepest longing, and that can guide our actions, choices and interactions through the year. Our daily practice becomes a reminder of this deepest intention.

This year we are offering the traditonal morning svadharma sessions, as well as an extended immersion option. Both are offered in-person and virtually.

Two Options

OPTION 1: Svadharma Sessions (mornings only)

This longstanding offering is a moment for the community to come together to commit to collective daily practice.

It is a simple, but profound practice to gather for the early mornings over a full week.

6:30-8:30 am daily from January 27-February 2

  • Meditation—committing to a daily practice of stillness and focused attention
  • Pranayama—techniques to work with our life force
  • Morning form—awakening the body, lubricating the joints
  • Chanting—focusing attention toward intention
  • Dinacharya—daily rituals to cleanse and clarify the senses
  • Building discipline to support well being
  • How to carve out time (even a little) for daily practice

OPTION 2: Svadharma Immersion (mornings + afternooon immersion)

This year, we are thrilled to offer an extended training immersion option in addition to the morning sessions.

This option includes the morning practices from 6:30-8:30 am. After a break, we will gather back for a deep dive into the foundations of practice.

We'll explore:

  • sadhana (daily practice)
  • samskaras—our undigested experiences that create deep grooves, patterns, habits, addictions
  • sankalpa—our deepest soul longing that supports us in making moment to moment choices that align
  • svadharma—our own path.

Janet Stone

Janet Stone

Janet’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.

FAQ

How is this practice immersion set up?

This immersion will be offered in person and via livestream in real time. We'll also record all of the sessions for those on different timezones.

I live in a different timezone (or country or continent)? Will I be able to participate in the course?

Yes! You can join the livestream and practice with us in real time from anywhere. We'll also record and upload each session soon after it ends, so that you can join in almost-real time via the recordings.

Will we be doing a physical practice?

Yes. The morning practices will include a morning form and sun salutations.

Can I rewatch or review content?

Yes, absolutely. You'll have ongoing access to the practices and discussions, and can revisit during our week together and beyond.

Who can I email if my question wasn’t answered here?
