    KIRTAN KRIYA;  often referred to as SA TA NA MA meditation, is the most important meditation in Kundalini Yoga.  It was one of the first meditations taught by Yogi Bhajan and remains today as a foundation meditation recommended for every student.   Yogi Bhajan said that if you can do only one meditation, this is it.  It is your teacher.  And as you practice it, you will come to realize that it is your best friend.     Sa Ta Na Ma Meditation is becoming scientifically recognized as a powerful tool for preventing or stopping Alzheimer’s disease, increasing all aspects of cognitive function and reducing stress levels while improving short term memory.  $10  read more.  https://pranayogasarasota.com/ongoing-events/31-min-meditation-before-the-gong

  • Multiple Gong Meditation w/ Dev Atma & Hukam

  • May 25, 2018 all day
  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center 3840 S. Osprey Ave. Sarasota, Fla
  • Description:

    The Use and Science of the Gong.   The most sublime instrument of the Yogi is the Gong.  It is a musical instrument, a healing tool for the nervous system and a cauldron in which you can create alchemical blends of qualities that open and develop the Inner Self.  Yogi Bhajan has asked that each ashram and yoga center have a gong and play it regularly.  He said it would help repair the ravages of drugs in the nervous system. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.  When you come to a Gong meditation we will begin with some gentle spinal movements  to open and clear your body.  You will then lay comfortably on a mat or cushions.  Relax deeply in the sound and leave feeling refreshed.

    "By construction, the fulfillment of a woman is motherhood; and motherhood does not mean that she gets pregnant and delivers a baby. If you understand her total behavior, you will understand her motherhood. Her motherhood is service, her motherhood is sacrifice, her motherhood is relationship. When she knows motherhood, she is fulfilled."

  • Sunday Sadhana

  • May 6, 2018 from 5:00am to 7:30am
  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center : 3840 S. Osprey Ave. Sarasota, Fla 34239
  • Description:

    A morning practice of  kriya yoga, chant and meditation in the kundalini yoga tradition according to Yogi Bhajan.   Experience your inner essence during the amrit vela.  A time where soul meets the universe.  Yoga!   The more people there are, the more these individual differences balance out and create a harmony. The happiness of one person balances the sadness of another. Then the entire group finds its energy directed by the activity of the sadhana itself.

     Sadhana is where you sit, dwell in the thoughts and words of the soul, and peel away all your non-reality with the vastness of your spirit.
    -The Mind, Recognize Your Reality

  • Apr 1, 2018 from 5:00am to 7:30am
  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center : 3840 S. Osprey Ave. Sarasota, Fla 34239

With Spring Equinox, Passover and Easter all joining up on the aspicious weekend.  As we gather in group it increases our energies and magnifies our prayers and intentions.  Everyone is welcome and No experience is needed

    "What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. It is something which you want to do, have to do, and which is being done by you. … Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best."
    ~Yogi Bhajan

  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center : 3840 S. Osprey Ave. Sarasota, Fla 34239
  • Description:

     The universe is powered by sound.  The gong is the basic creative sound. Out of the gong comes all music, all sounds, all words.  The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word.  It takes three to ninety seconds for the sound of the gong to overtake the mind!  Wow, no wonder I'm out like a light within the first few strokes.   The gong is traditionally used in the Kundalini Yoga tradition as a healing tool. It is like a primitive form of ultrasound. The sound vibrations of the gong move through your body/mind clearing blocks, releasing tension and bringing harmony to your whole body.

     When finished you will be deeply refreshed and relaxed that only you could describe through your personal experience.
