“I have finally found what I was looking for. Gentle yoga poses, no pressure to be in a certain rhythm or specific routine of poses  and plenty of meditation.” Margaret 

This Each day Padma focuses on one of life’s challenge and offers classical hatha yoga poses and sequences, healing breathing techniques, meditation practices and Padma’s signature “Sanskrit Word of the Day,” that all help to alleviate the struggle. Padma Yoga expertly guides you towards full health, freedom and love.

The topic in each of the 26 episodes addresses a general challenge that people encounter in life, for example, frustration or life changes, and then identifies a specific example of each challenge, for example, parenting or loss of a job.

“Thank you so much for your Breathing Meditation. I use it every day! I have long-term chronic pain from curvature of the spine. With your breathing meditation I’m able to cope with it better than some of the medication I take! Its nice to drop-out a little bit during the day from pain. Also, to stop my thinking just for a little while makes me feel like a true human being. Your voice and devotion is a gift to this sometimes chaotic world. Again, Thank you so much.” David C., Middletown, DE USA
