Kundalini Yoga

An all levels practice. We are dedicated to the modern movement of Kundalini Yoga as an ancient lineage and an evolving modern yoga practice. Kundalini Yoga is known for its potency and practical ability to support overall wellness, the health and functioning of internal systems such as immunity, nervous system strength and glandular system balance. It quickly releases stress, deepens your capacity for life, and quiets the mind. Our style includes warm-up movements, asana, kriya, meditations, pranayama, sound and mantra, and relaxation. Kundalini practices often center around exercises done in a seated position, although lying down and dynamic or standing movements are also included. In this practical practice for wellness, creativity is ignited and connection with inner strength empowered. Kundalini is great for people who live full and demanding lives, and need quick, real and lasting stress relief, spiritual connection and well-being. For many centuries Kundalini Yoga was guarded as a secret practice, only for the privileged, and was suppressed and misrepresented to steer people away from the empowerment and liberation it invokes. It is said that kundalini energy awakens our soul and liberates us from suffering and self-imposed limits, by connecting us directly to Source energy and the voice of inner wisdom and knowing. Kundalini Yoga is considered safe and appropriate for everyone, as long as you have good body awareness and feel comfortable modifying postures when needed. Kundalini Yoga releases and rewires old habit patterns, brings forth cleansing and clarity, and supports you to experience your full potential, creativity and joy.

This practice offers an amalgamation of yoga, breath work, asana, shaking, dance, sound, and more, inspired by Kundalini and other yoga lineages.

Sound Baths

Relax into a healing sound bath, centered around gong. Experience shamanic drumming, voice and mantra, singing bowls, and more. Arise from the sound bath into a guided meditation. Experience vibrational healing that resonates with your body's own capacity for self-healing. Sound medicine supports your body's internal systems, clears the subconscious mind, supports you to connect with Source, and releases and transforms old patterns. Sound healing is an ancient methodology of healing, and is effective in creating lasting change, on multiple levels.
