Sadhana Yoga School 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. 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.
We have simple shared accommodations for those who would like to have a relaxing getaway. All rooms have shared baths in the hall.
Join us in our natural wood yoga space, heated by a wood stove (but not in the summer), with amazing views of the grounds. Our main yoga studio, with its warm textures and many windows, feels right for any size group, accommodating up to 40 yogis on their unfurled mats, or over 100 cushions seated participants for a candle-lit kirtan.
Sadhana yoga means yoga as a spiritual practice. We offer two variations of asana practice that are a blend of various traditions. The Vinyasa flow practice is derived mainly from Ashtanga yoga and is a fast-paced flow.
The second is a Hatha practice derived from Sivananda tradition, which is more meditative with longer held poses. Both sequences together provide you with a great foundation to build any type of yoga class upon. After graduation, you will receive a 200-hour yoga teacher certificate, will be able to register with Yoga Alliance, and teach anywhere in the world.
The course will cover chanting, meditation, pranayama, and asana, in addition to yogic philosophy, physical and energetic anatomy, ethics, and the business of yoga. Cleansing practices of kriyas will be incorporated throughout the program, including fasting and silence.
We begin with chanting, breathing practices, and meditation, followed by asana class. You will then have a break for brunch and karma yoga. The afternoon will be composed of a light lunch, lectures, and teaching workshops. We share family style vegetarian dinner and end the day with satsang, our community gathering.

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; from swimming to relaxing sauna; from climbing Mt. Monadnock to trips to town. There is something for everyone to participate in on the free time during the training.
