Raja Yoga With Anjali
LGBTQ Yoga. Mats, bolsters, blankets, blocks, and straps provided. Please arrive 5-10 min early to center down and observe sacred silence. All yoga classes by donations. First 30 days free. No one turned away for lack of funds. Optional dinner afterwards at local restaurant. In Raja Yoga (Royal Path) you will learn classical postures with a focus on diaphragmatic breathing, pranayama and a systematic approach to relaxation and meditation. Through these techniques you will learn to create a resilient body and stable mind. Raja Yoga emphasizes the benefits of meditation for spiritual Self-realization. Raja Yoga is also referred to as the Mental Yoga, or the Yoga of the Mind, because of its emphasis on awareness of one's state of mind. It is through this practice of concentration that one learns to calm the mind and bring it to one point of focus. It is at this point that we direct our attention inwardly, toward our true nature, which is Divine.

What we're about

This is a group for LGBTQ people only who wish to practice yoga, meditation, qigong/tai chi, in a welcoming space as a means to deepen their spirituality and meet new friends. Join for classes, workshops and LGBTQ socials. We seek to create a sangha (community of practitioners) who support and inspire each other to reach our full human potential and realize our inner Divine nature. We seek ways to share the beauty and depth of yoga and meditation with other marginalized groups who have been historically disenfranchised from access to these spiritual practices. We wear name tags with pronouns so everyone is gendered correctly. First 30 days free. Thereafter classes supported by donations. All are welcome regardless of ability to donate. Come out, Come home! Namaste!
