Transforming Rest with Yoga Practices
Fall Equinox - September 23rd, 2023
The Fall Equinox is around the corner. Are you ready? To honor the change of seasons, 3HO is hosting “Sleep Alchemy: Transforming Rest with Yoga Practice.” In this all-day virtual program, we journey into the dreamspace of rest and deep sleep.
Rest as Resistance
Have you considered the relationship between sleep and your yoga practice? Have you prioritized sleep as a part of your practice? Have you considered rest, like your yoga, to be brave in a world that always begs you to do more? What does it mean to improve your sleep hygiene?
“We are not Machines. We are Divine.”
-The Nap Ministry
Our nervous systems were made to handle the news of our village, not the entire world. The influx of information and stimuli today can be incapacitating, and for many of us leads to stress, fatigue, and health problems that stem from subpar sleep.
Reclaiming your sacred sleep is a revolutionary act. Like your favorite kriya or meditation, rest is a tool for liberation and personal change. Join us for our Fall Equinox Program to unlock the secrets of profound rest through the practice of yoga.
- The science of sleep and its impact on health and well-being.
- Research-based evidence on the effectiveness of yoga practices for improved sleep.
- Expert-led Kundalini Yoga sessions tailored for deep relaxation and sleep enhancement.
- Tools to improve your sleep hygiene
- Deepen your understanding of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine perspectives on rest and healing.
Mark your calendars and reserve your spot for the 2023 3HO Fall Equinox Program, Sleep Alchemy. Embrace the power of profound sleep and awaken to a life of serenity.

During LIVE morning Sadhana, we will experience the recitation of Japji, a short yoga set, and we will chant the Aquarian Sadhana mantras. If you are unsure of how to do Aquarian Sadhana, or what the mantras are, click here to download a practical guide.
What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga is known as the Yoga of Awareness. How does it differ from other forms of yoga? The emphasis in Kundalini Yoga is on the flow of the kriya—the specific sequence of exercises and meditations (these may include posture, breath, mantra, focus, and/or movement).
Postures are often held for a substantial period of time, to the point where the mind gives way to the body’s wisdom. We begin each yoga set with a mantra of protection called the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo), which links you to the flow of Infinite Consciousness that guides the kundalini energy, a powerful energy of consciousness that lies at the base of the spine.
The synergistic combination of postures, mantras, and meditations combines to put positive pressure on the subconscious mind and allow it to clear limiting beliefs and patterns that are otherwise inaccessible.
If you have any questions about Kundalini Yoga or any of the practices we share during our eSolstice, head to the 3HO Online Events Facebook group to get some answers!
