40 Day Intensive

Yogi Bhajan said it takes 40 days to change a habit or create a new one….

Step into a whole new way of life at the Mother Ashram.

Rise in the Amrit Vela, the ambrosial hours before dawn.

Practice Kundalini Yoga along with your peers, Yogi Bhajan’s students who have been practicing for 40+ years.

Have the opportunity to learn about the Sikh way of life that Yogi Bhajan taught and participate in the soul rousing kirtan (spiritual song).

Be a part of the community and experience the Healthy, Happy, Holy lifestyle.
