About Sadhana: discovery feminine power
Sadhana: I am literally the embodiment of Sadhana, embedded in my name; Sadhana is also a concept in the world of yoga and meditation. 'Sadhana' means spiritual practice; it consists of various meditative rituals that originates from Hinduism. Within this religion 'Sadhana' is a mindset and way of life that finds its source in exercises; the goal is obtain a certain spiritual level.
It all started with a passion for dance and movement. Sanstha Amrit was founded in 1998, literally translated: 'Institute for nectar of everlastingness'. Everlastingness involves a process of eternal movement; movement in which balance is sought. Indian classical temple dance in combination with yoga and movement expression helps you to find this balance: on a physical level, but ultimately also in your whole being.
Discovery of your feminine power
Every woman makes an inner journey in her life because she must discover her essence and her own strength. This process implies that she unties herself from her mother figure, discovers her male counterpart and eventually unites these two forces (Shiva & Shakti) within herself. The energy of the goddess Kali (goddess of radical transformation) dwells between these two extremes as a disruptive but also healing power.
