Kundalini Yoga uses movement, sound current, breath and meditation to relax and heal your mind and body, allowing the spirit to flow freely by opening the pathways of the mind and body to invoke feelings of well-being and happiness. We begin the class by tuning into our highest selves, allowing our inner guidance to lead us deeper within, and open awareness to the body and mind connection. Once connected in, we have a greater ability to move, shift and unblock the energy of the body through movement and breath. This powerful and effective form of Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, is a great way to recharge and heal your body quickly by stimulating the nervous and immune systems, while improving strength and flexibility, as it centers the mind and opens the spirit.
