What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in learning about all the alternative healing modalities of the world. We get the word out about workshops and events in and around the LA area for all styles of healing arts and spirituality. The classes are always led by a professional who has trained in the methods being presented.

This group is an excellent way to find introductions to all kinds of healing traditions available in the city and to connect to teachers and guides who are passionate about helping others on their life journey.

Please note, since we do not collect payment from this site, the number of RSVP's for an event does NOT indicate the number of people who may attend. Payments are made directly to the hosts via links included in the listings.

If you are a healer or teacher who would like to present your workshops with our group please message Jessica Hagan. We look forward to learning with you!

Pa Kua Kickboxing/Rhythm Class

Pa Kua

I've been smiling a lot more in life since I started taking this Kickboxing class in Burbank. I never thought I was the kickboxing sort of person but this class is so relaxed and low-stress that I now go twice a week. Exercise is an essential ingredient for health and wellness but it can be difficult to really push ourselves at home on our own. This lively, high energy class makes the time fly. It is a relaxed, non-competitive environment for all ages and experience levels. Kyle, the teacher is exceptionally attentive to every student and customizes their workout for any injuries or limitations they may have. The community is supportive and encouraging. Community helps make regular exercise a part of your life. If you've been wanting to increase strength, confidence, and flexibility, as well as find new rhythm to your life come take your first kickboxing class free and then try the two-week unlimited classes special for $28.

SADHANA: 4:15am Spiritual Practice - Free

The Awareness Center

Yep. This class happens at 4:15am in the morning. Ever done yoga that early? It is a powerful cleansing experience everyone should try at least once! Kundalini yoga is very different from Hatha in that it uses mantra chanting as well as repetitive movements to access and strengthen the core Kundalini energy found in everyone. Sadhana is the daily practice of yoga and meditation that is practiced, ideally, during the early morning hours when our mind is clearest. Join the AC's dedicated sadhana group on Sundays for a transformative experience of body, mind, and spirit. Experience the techniques of Kundalini Yoga, meditation, breathing, chanting, music, and relaxation to assist you in unlocking and releasing your inner creative energies. Feel the power of group energy and be part of the process. Enter through the back door. If you have never been to the Awareness Center (http://www.awarenesscenteryoga.org/contact.html) please contact the studio prior to your visit to confirm the gathering is not canceled. [masked] The greatest reward of doing sadhana (personal spiritual discipline) is that the person becomes incapable of being defeated. Sadhana is a self–victory, and it is a victory over time and space. —Yogi Bhajan There are guidelines for sadhana - but no rules. It is recommended to cover your head with a white cotton head covering. But please just come as you are and you will learn at your own pace and can make your own decision about what traditions you wish to observe or not. It is a very loving and safe space. Please tell the leader it is your first time and she/he will give you information and the Japji prayer booklet. Here is a link for some general information about Sadhana from 3HO: We observe the tradition but start at 4:15 am and do a couple things slightly different. It's easy to follow along. https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/sadhana/preparing-sadhana https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/sadhana/aquarian-sadhana Our Sadhana team comprises of longtime community members Guru Bachan Kaur, Sahib Singh, Ravjot Kaur and Sat Prem Kaur. As well as several other community members.
