Nitya Karma is the art of daily living. Foundational to all Vedic sciences, it teaches the natural law of the universe that is fundamental to Yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra. There are things we do not choose to do that are necessary for life such as eating, sleeping, and breathing. Through these practices we can improve our lives by sustaining balance and harmony in the outer world that supports our inner spiritual development.

Students will learn:
• Vedic morning prayer: how to awake and start the day
• Snaan: purification practices for body and mind
• Sanskrit mantras, asanas, mudras, and kriyas
• Sandhya Vandana: self healing through sun worship
• Brahma Yajna: the science of learning
