Most people regularly tune-up their cars for peak performance and long life. Not so with their own physical body. We forget that our own bodies need the same devoted attention and maintenance to give us the energy and well being necessary for living a full and happy life. Kundalini Yoga is an ancient science with the technology to maintain and tune up the human body so that it can achieve peak performance at every age and stage of life.
You don’t need to have a flexible body or a quiet mind to begin—you just need to show up!
This six-week class is an introduction to the practice of Kundalini yoga, and is appropriate for all levels, from first-timers through intermediate/advanced practitioners. All are welcome! The class will provide a safe, fun and engaging learning environment. Students will learn and demystify all things including proper breathing techniques, fundamental yoga poses, and methods for relaxation. This series is taught in a sequential manner to help students build confidence, strength and flexibility.
Do you want to… — deepen &/or expand your yoga and Spiritual practice? — release stress and experience deeper levels of peace and relaxation? — lose weight and learn more about nutrition as well as the what’s and whys of yoga? — more clarity of thought and how to go beyond the mind limitations? — create internal space and become more fully aware and mindful? — tune-in to your higher and inspired GOD Self? — accelerate the yogic effects on your body, mind and Consciousness?
ADDITIONAL COURSE INFORMATION: Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness is a Raj Yoga (encompassing all eight limbs of yoga) into a single practice and is considered the most comprehensive of yogic traditions. All forms of yoga are intended to raise the kundalini energy. The technology of Kundalini Yoga carefully orchestrates asanas, pranayama, meditation, mudra, and dristi (focus) in exacting sequences and times (known as kriyas) to accelerate the desired effects on the body, mind and Consciousness.
Each week we will work with pranayama (breath), asana (postures) and alignment for safety. We will also engage in meditation and mindfulness techniques to release and alleviate stress in our lives! See topics below:
February 5, 2018 - The Breath of Life. This set is a great tune up for the whole body. It focuses on various proper breathing exercises and techniques for yoga and relaxation.
February 12, 2018 - Mindfulness. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress levels and is a practice that is about paying attention to your experience of focusing within the present time.
