Sample Daily Schedule
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali say that regularity and discipline are key elements to a yogic lifestyle. Sri Shambhavananda, the founder of the Shambhava School of Yoga, also says that regularity is our greatest strength. A daily schedule is like a container, without it the teachings fall through and become lost, but with it the teachings and rewards of practice remain and you start to grow and grow. Each day at Konalani begins before sunrise and ends after sunset, but the momentum of the group and the fullness of the experience makes it all possible.
