Kundalini Yoga, known as the “Yoga of Awareness” is an ancient technology for achieving true joy and happiness, and for tapping into one’s own creative potential. An extremely powerful, concentrated, focused and complete practice, it’s effects can often be felt immediately. It incorporates all facets of yoga, including mantra (chanting), pranayam (breath exercises), asanas (postures), mudra (hand positions), and meditation. This combination can allow everyone, even the busiest people to achieve wholeness, balance in mind, body and spirit, inner strength, self-awareness, and experience of Union with the Divine.
The symphonic gong, played during savasana (deep relaxation), accesses healing through the sound current, allowing the nervous system to fully relax and integrate the effects of the yoga that precedes it. As the mind quiets and the body lets go, healing and energy can flow like waves, penetrating through thoughts and giving rise to connection to the very seed of creation.
Class begins with a brief mantra to connect us to our Divine Teacher and the lineage and legacy of Kundalini Yoga. We then move into the physical practice, or kriya, to awaken the energy of consciousness, the Kundalini, and open to it’s flow. Fully prepared by the complete and powerful action of the kriya, we move into deep, extended relaxation with the gong, where the effects of the kriya integrate and change happens. Meditation follows, as the energy flows and allows for a full, comprehensive, and blissful experience of this amazing technology. Meditation can include mantra, chanted or silent, pranayam, mudra, and visualization, and can occasionally precede the gong. Class closes with a positive affirmation, chanted as we bask in the glow of group energy. We end with a sampling of delicious Yogi Tea. Leave feeling rejuvenated and soothed, open and blessed. Sat Nam.
