Yoga Vana conducts a 2 days Yoga Sankalpa at Auroville, India

In our daily life, we set goals to accomplish something based on our personal need and imagine how happy we will be when we get what we want. Most of the times we fail to be there and we abandon our resolutions as our enthusiasm and will power run out within weeks.

The Yogic term Sankalpa is not just about setting some resolutions to achieve our goals, but a deeper affirmation that connects within to that which already exists. San means a connection with the highest truth and Kalpa means - the rule to be followed above all other rules. Thus Sankalpa is honoring the dharma – the deeper meaning of our life. Sankalpa is a statement we can call upon to remind us of our true nature and to guide our choices. It is not something we need to make up or search for. It is already present, waiting to be seen, heard and felt.
