We are thrilled to have Kundalini Yoga as a regular class on our schedule! Natalia will lead practice Sunday evenings, 6:30-8:00.
Kundalini Yoga is for everyone. It’s The Yoga of Awareness and is “the supreme technology to awaken your awareness and take you into your original Self. It is a natural unfolding of your true nature.” With an emphasis on experiencing this true nature, Kundalini Yogaas taught by Yogi Bhajan is a grouping of asana, pranayama and meditation. The goal is to elevate us beyond our habitual thought forms so we can see our true human potential. The practice of this yoga strengthens our glandular system and nervous system so that we gain control of our mind and emotions, living less in our reactive personality and more in our true state of higher consciousness.

Yogi Bhajan, who was named a Kundalini master at age 16, brought Kundalini Yoga to the West from India in 1968. Although the practices of Kundalini Yoga were kept secret in India, Yogi Bhajan understood that people in the West were dealing with many pressures from modern life. While he meant to just start teaching Hatha Yoga, he ended up teaching Kundalini to help people deal with their minds. The fundamental difference between Kundalini Yoga and Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga is that the latter primarily deal with the physical body as a means to awaken the mind. Kundalini works on the physical, as well as the mental bodies.
A typical Kundalini class starts with a brief opening talk to explain what the focus of the class will be, followed by a combination of physical yoga poses often done simultaneously to conscious breathing. Meditation is always part of the class and often includes mantras and mantra music meant to tune the sound current into a higher vibration.
No previous yoga or meditation is needed to participate!
