The Annual 40-Day Spiritual Festival 2017 May 31 – July 9, 2017
Each summer during the 40 days that precede Guru Purnima, sadhakas are invited to participate in the 40-Day Spiritual Festival, to expand and refine one’s sadhana.
In 2017, the 40-Day Festival will begin on 31st May and will end on 9th July, which is Guru Purnima.
These 40 days are celebrated wherever you are.
It is a time to contemplate (and talk with others about) the many ways you can participate.

If you have not yet started this practice, you may want to start now.
During these 40 days, yoga students can choose to intensify their yoga practice and/or make beneficial changes in their lifestyles, in a variety of ways. Here are just a few from which to choose.
