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.
