Sat Nam,

Come nourish your soul with Kundalini Yoga. "TheYoga of Awareness"

This class is suitable for all. Beginners need not worry: the focus is more on breathing and meditation than on difficult postures. In every posture you have a chance to experience devotion, that's what postures are really all about. Embrace the spirit in you and marvel at the beautiful engineering of your own body.
So come and enjoy the results of a Kundalini Yoga Class. Classes are 75 minutes.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini yoga is an ancient science or technology to awaken awareness, it utilizes breathing, mantra (sound and rhythm), mudra (hand postures), asanas (postures) and the beaming power of the mind. All this aids you, the practitioner, to live virtually in harmony with the inner self, the higher self.
“Yoga is the union of the individual’s unit consciousness.” ~Yogi Bhajan

Kundalini yoga is also a tool to achieve self mastery, and one of the oldest forms of human development. All yoga sets are designed to work on specific body systems, such as the muscular, skeletal, cardiovascular, glandular or reproductive system. Additionally, each set helps to balance emotional as well as mental patterns, and works towards greater awareness and well being.

What Happens During a Yoga Session

1. Tuning in with the Adi Mantra while sitting in a crossed-legged position and hands in prayer pose. You chant

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo (3x)

This Sanskirt chant means, I bow to the infinite Wisdom of the Universe; I call upon you. I bow to the divine Wisdom within; I call upon you.

2. Warm up exercises a series of exercises or postures to warm up the spine and loosen the body in preparation of performing a Kriya.

3.Kriya a series of postures (asanas in Sanskirt) with intended results, the purpose of which is to transform your state of consciousness. Different breathing techniques are used to benefit the entire body .

4.Relaxation/Meditation There are sometimes opportunities for relaxation between postures providing awareness of the body, sensations, emotions and thoughts. Relaxation is as important as the postures. An extended relaxation and or meditation is done at the end of the kriya.

5.Class ends with a song - Long Time Sun Song

May the long time sun shine upon you,
