Kundalini

Kundalini yoga is a dynamic blend of postures, breath work, chanting, music and meditation, which teach you the art of relaxation and self-healing. Balancing body and mind enables you to experience the clarity and beauty of your soul. No previous experience in yoga is required. 


Kundalini Sadhana

A special, early morning Kundalini yoga practice. Sadhana means a daily spiritual practice. The yogic scriptures call for at least two-and-a-half hours of sadhana before the rising of the sun. The two-and-a-half hours is determined by the law of karma--everything you give, you receive back tenfold. Getting up for sadhana is a victory over time and doing sadhana together is a victory over space. Sadhana is considered a self-victory.

Yin yoga poses focus on rehydrating the body and increasing flexibility and mobility by increasing circulation in the joints, ligaments and tendons by lengthening the fascia with deep stretching.
