Kundalini Yoga is known as “The Yoga of Awareness” due to it’s powerful inward focus on awareness of body, mind and spirit to provide a deep feeling of peace, happiness and well-being. Kundalini is a Raj Yoga (encompassing all eight limbs of yoga) into a single practice. Through synergy of body, mind, sound, breath and the meridian points, Kundalini Yoga relaxes and promotes healing without the use of “pretzel postures”. It is a great practice for both genders, couples and all levels of conditioning. From your very first class you will experience the differences and benefits of this ancient yoga as you improve flexibility and strength, recharge and heal your body, nervous system and immune systems. In addition, Kundalini Yoga is highly useful in the treatment of addictions, back pain, depression, insomnia, stress and weight control. Everyone and anyone can do it and should experience the amazing effects of Kundalini Yoga!
Let go of effort as you sink into held poses that work to enhance mobility and flexibility. Yin Yoga is ‘passive’ yoga where we sink into postures for extended intervals. The longer held poses eases flexibility to connective tissue, cultivating ‘core flexibility’ and restores the body & mind.This practice works with the Chinese Medicine Meridian system to help build inner resources and dissipate energetic blockages. Classes include a meditative aspect and may include gentle vinyasa flows.
This class includes a blend of movement and breath with attention to alignment to best support the body for maximum health and efficiency. Work involves releasing the tight & problem areas and strengthening the weak to balance the physical body.
