Kundalini Yoga for the Aquarian Age: We entered the Aquarian Age in 2011. It is a time of expanded awareness. A time that tests our nervous systems and demands we continue to tune in. Yogi Bhajan offered 5 Sutras for the Aquarian Age. Sutras are, figuratively and literally, “threads” that string life together. They are words to live by. In this workshop we will explore the 5 Sutras for the Aquarian Age. Class is appropriate for all levels and will include a gong relaxation.

Kundalini Yoga & Chakras: Chakras are an ancient framework for understanding your system. When a chakra is imbalanced in its exchange with the environment, then disease states can set in. With knowledge of the chakras, an individual has more ability to take action in his/her life to re-orient to balance…and wellbeing. In this workshop, we will learn about the chakras and use Kundalini Yoga technologies to assess and balance each of the chakras. You will walk away with a new perspective on your system and tools to re-balance it. All levels welcome. Class will include asana and pranayama practice, meditation, and Gong healing relaxation.

Kundalini Yoga & the 10 bodies: Kundalini Yoga uses the 10 bodies to conceptualize our individual system. It reminds us that all of our parts are connected, and that in bringing balance to one, we assist in a balancing our wholeness. The 10 bodies include 1 physical body, 3 mental bodies, and 6 energy bodies. Yogi Bhajan, who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West, taught his students about tantric numerology, which is a way to understand which of your 10 bodies are your strengths and weaknesses in this lifetime, based on your birth date. Prior to the beginning of the series, you may want to get a free tantric numerology reading at https://www.3ho.org/tantric-numerology-reading. During this workshop, you will have an opportunity to assess your system through the lens of 10 bodies. Class will include asana and pranayama practice, meditation, and Gong healing relaxation.

Yoga is not about bending your body into different positions. Yoga is about loving yourself so much that you want to spend that time with just you and your mat. It is about being kind to yourself so that you can be kind to others. It is about opening your heart...
Taught by Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga is also known as the yoga of awareness, as it is done with the eyes closed. Kundalini Yoga creates a path for deep inner awareness and reflection, metaphorically opening your eyes to your own Soul. It offers an individual the opportunity to be with self, listen to self, and open his/her heart to unconditionally loving self, therefore initiating deep healing.
Kundalini Yoga blends pranayama (breath work), hand postures (mudras), asana (postures), meditation, mantra, body locks (energy locks), and eye-focus to strengthen the nervous system, cleanse the blood, increase lung capacity, stabilize the glandular system and balance the body’s energy. The benefits of Kundalini Yoga are endless: decreased stress and anxiety, increased flexibility (both mind and body), increased strength (both physical and mental), improved sleep, improved digestion, and enhanced overall wellness.
It provides the practitioner with a toolbox of techniques to use at home to address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual ailments. Each kriya (set) has a specific goal or focus, like a chakra, organ or condition (i.e., anger). All levels welcome.
“It’s not a religion. It aims to uplift the Spirit, across denominations. Kundalini Yoga aims to awaken the dormant kundalini energy of the body and soul. This energy is essentially the energy of YOU. It’s your most natural Self. it’s the potential of your Spirit. The goal of this practice is to awaken that most essential you so that you feel at home in the world, in yourself.” ~Nicole Nardone
