What is Kripalu Yoga?
“Kripalu yoga is a comprehensive, disciplined approach to self-study that cultivates health, facilitates psychological growth, and transforms one’s sense of self. Kripalu yoga arises from thousands of years of study and practice in fostering spiritual connection to all life and an awakening to the authentic self. It focuses on getting in touch with one’s own innate wisdom and happiness through cultivating nonjudgemental awareness. Teachers guide students through a practice of asana (which could be gentle, moderate, or vigorous), pranayama, and meditation, but neither posture sequences nor instructions are standardized. What distinguishes a Kripalu Yoga class is an emphasis on bringing awareness to the physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts that arise throughout the practice. The way we act and react on the mat becomes a microcosm for the way we act and react in daily life, leading to greater authenticity, equanimity, and happiness”. ~Kripalu Winter catalog 2012

Balancing the Brain with Kundalini Yoga
Saturday February 3rd from 1-3pm
The ego & mind are fantastic servants, but make the WORST masters. In Yogic science it is known that we have 3 minds: negative, positive & neutral. When they get imbalanced a whole array of issues can arise: you can be over reactive, easily over stimulated, anxious, depressed, emotional, commontional...you name we get it.
"In Kundalini Yoga we recognize the mind, with all its facets and tricks, and we train it. We equally recongnize, cultivate and optimize the brain through mudras, meridians and breath. We approach the brain and mind together in order to be healthy, happy & holy." ~ KRI Mind & Meditation Manual
With the constant bombardment of societal imprinting it can be hard to maintain a sense of Self and healthy balance. This workshop will provide the Yogic tools you need to observe your mind & balance the brain.
No Kundalini Yoga experience necessary.
In this practice we use many techniques to break through to the human psyche: asana (posture), pranayama (breath work), mantra (sacred sound current -non denominational of course) & a varity of meditations techniques. Come open by dropping any expectations and give yourself the space needed to have a direct experience that will be unique to you. Kundalini is truly ALL in the experience. It is the gift of this personal experience that I offer you!
Added bonus you'll enjoy an extended savasana accompanied by the many healing effects of the gong.
Sat Nam 🌟🙏🌟
Homemade Yogi tea & a light snack will be served ☕️🍊🍎
Traditional Kundalini apparel (all white with head covering) welcomed, but not required.
$25 with pre-registration
$30 day of event.
