Sagar Hallal was born and raised near the beach in Southern California. Somewhat of a golden child, he was enchanted with sports, surfing and rock & roll music. After suffering intense disillusionment as a young person, he met Swami Muktananda at age 19 and experienced a profound spiritual rebirth. He wound up spending the next 12 years living in ashrams (spiritual communities), travelling with Muktananda’s successor Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, performing service (mainly cooking), chanting, meditating and learning Vedic sciences.
By age 35 he found himself on Kauai, where he spent the next 14 years, helping run an Ayurvedic oil distributorship, selling real estate and surfing. After meeting Nicole in Panama in 2010, he relocated to Sacramento, where he now devotes himself to raising 2 young children (better late than never!) and running New Leaf Ayurveda.
He also offers a 6 week spirituality course, “Spirituality’s Blueprint”. This class is informed by his potent combination of years of intense spiritual practice, and years of living a “worldly” life. His viewpoint is one of high spiritual principles tempered by the realities of Nature, relationship, and life in a body, and his penetrating insights can be very illuminating.
