A slower-paced class with more time between poses. Emphasis is placed upon mindful movement, harmonizing the over-active mind, and fostering a greater sense of calm.

Kundalini Yoga is a technology that combines breath work, a rhythmic kriya (which is like asana in Hatha yoga) and mindful meditation. Kundalini, also known as the yoga of awareness, has been passed down from guru to student over the span of thousands of years. It was brought to the Western world in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan, who shared this technology that promotes health, happiness and wholeness. According to this tradition, a consistent practice of Kundalini Yoga can improve the Nervous System and the Circulatory System, balance the Endocrine System, and strengthen the Muscular System. Kundalini Yoga may help eliminate emotional blocks, harmful patterns and ease the suffering of trauma, while building a sense of self-awareness. Open to all.
