WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Urban Sadhana was a great introduction to the deeper spiritual practice of yoga. Nuria was a very inspiring guide, and her knowledge of meditation techniques, breath work, and yoga philosophy helped to encourage growth and curiosity in all of her students. Urban Sadhana was a very worthwhile experience, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to expand their meditation practice and knowledge of yoga.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Urban Sadhana is a platform for expansion. With layers of wisdom woven and weaving into the bodies of a circle of breathers and
be-ers, space for the delicacy and abundance of breath is held throughout Urban Sadhana.
The composition and structure of the Urban Sadhana classes allowed me to merge from them, into a more independent practice while still being supported by the teachings of Urban Sadhana. Not only was my understanding of pranayama and my meditation practice fostered during Urban Sadhana, my knowledge of Ayurveda, body systems such as nadis and chakras, mudras, tantra, ethics as well as the evolution of yoga expanded immensely. These topics beyond meditation cushioned the simple yet powerful breath practice with a purpose. Each of the rich bits of wisdom I have harvested from Urban Sadhana has a distinct and essential flavor and when accompanying each other, make for a satiated, still, present and grateful me.
