Morning Classes

The New Year has gotten off to a brilliant start and, with new instructors, come new classes. For those of you who have been yearning for morning yoga - we have something for you. On Tuesdays and Thursdays there will be two morning classes. The classes will be offered back-to-back, the first starting at 8:00 -ending at 9:15 a.m. The second starting at 9:30 - ending at 11:00 a.m. 8:00 - ending at 9:30 a.m. The second starting at 10:00 - ending at 11:15.

We are sure to confuse you with the names of our morning instructors, Lulwa and Yulia, not quite rhyming, but enough to tongue-tie you if you try to say them together. Look for their biographies and class descriptions in the coming days.

We are doing our best to meet the needs of our yoga community as the opportunities to do so arise. If you have any particular desires, send us an email with your ideas or requests and we will do our best to accommodate.

Kundalini Yoga

Relax and Renew With this vigorous, restorative form of yoga.

WHAT IS KUNDALINI: Kundalini Yoga is called the yoga of awareness. It enables one to access and utilize his or her own creative energy. This form of yoga, from the northern regions of India, was introduced and taught by the master of Kundalini, Yogi Bhajan. Practicing Kundalini helps to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the bloodstream. The practice combines physical postures (asanas) with breathing techniques (pranayama), hand positions (mudras), sound currents (mantras), and meditation. Kundalini Yoga offers a physical, mental and spiritual program that provides a simple guide to living in health, peace, and harmony.

WHAT TO BRING: As always, there are yoga mats that you are welcome to use at the studio, but since we will be sitting on the floor for most of the class, you may want to bring something soft to sit on. (Like a thick mat or towel.)

WHAT TO WEAR: Anything that is comfortable to stretch in. At the end of the yoga set, we take a long relaxation. Have something that you can cover yourself with to keep warm.

INSTRUCTOR Dev Hueske is a certified instructor of Kundalini Yoga. She began practicing Kundalini in 1996, and in 2000 moved to New Mexico to study with Yogi Bhajan and earn her teacher certification. As an international teacher of yoga and meditation, she has taught yoga classes in the United States, India, and Mexico. Dev has been teaching Kundalini Yoga in Egypt for the past two years.
