Kundalini Yoga, referred to as the Yoga of Awareness, is an ancient form of yoga brings the physical body, the mind, and spirit back into alignment to enable person to connect to their highest consciousness and live their purpose.
Kundalini Yoga is for anyone wishing to align their mind and body while achieving inner growth, happiness, and a full connection with every aspect of their being. The outcomes of this practice include: increased mobility and flexibility, core strengthening, a stronger nervous system, resistance to illness, a balanced glandular system, reduced subconscious fear and distraction, and the deepest connection between the finite self and infinite self.
Kundalini Yoga uses kriyas (sets of yoga poses), mantra (sound/chanting), pranayama (breath work), movement, and meditation, to work the whole body system (glands, organs, nervous system, chakras, mental faculties) to develop in the student a compassionate and contemplative self-awareness that leads to peace, happiness, and a calm heart.
With regular practice students will strengthen their nervous/glandular/muscular systems, quiet the monkey mind, support a healthy flexible spine, and improve lung capacity. Each class includes meditation, mantra, and deep relaxation where the fruits of each practice can be integrated in the body.
Every class is different, but all classes address subtle and gross shifts in the physical, mental & spiritual body. All classes produce the results of bringing in healing, energy, joy, and self-love.
Kundalini Yoga classes are universally suitable for students of all abilities. Students new to yoga and meditation are always welcome.
