Breath work, movement, kriya and mantra. Kundalini yoga is designed to increase the body's ability to contain energy which boosts the immune system. It also activates dormant and underused parts of the brain, and releases buildup of old/trapped energy from the energy centers creating balance. This is an ancient yogic modality for holistic healing. If you are looking for a deeper yogic experience and to do something that will create health and change in your body/mind, come join us! All levels are welcome.

Intro to Sattva Kriya & Kundalini
This 60 minute class provides a detailed instruction on different yogic breath techniques and kriyas brought forth from the Himalayan teachings in India. It also sets a foundation of practice in the area of Sattva Kriya and Kundalini.
Focus is on accessing, strenghthening, and balancing the subtle bodies as well as energizing all areas of the brain, releasing old neuro pathway connections and creating new ones.
Performing kriya and increasing kundalini energy enables our body to balance and contain more prana (life force) thereby allowing for a stronger and healthier central nervous system and immune system, heightened awareness, connection and intuition, and cultivates a deep sense of peace.
60min. Not Heated. All levels.
