Light Movement + Guided Meditation
Light movement satisfies the body's urge to stretch, therefore deepening relaxation when in meditation. Guided Meditation is an approach to training the mind, but more than anything we just want to hold a space for you to unplug from the outside world and check in with yourself. This class is suitable for those who have never attempted a meditation practice and seasoned practitioners alike!
Kundalini Yoga for Beginners + Gong Healing
Kundalini Yoga incorporates the physical aspects of yoga, along with the mind and spirit.
Each class consist of five elements to awaken the energy of consciousness.
1. Centering: Tuning into our higher selves.
2. Kriya: A specific set of exercises that generate energy, organize that energy and deliver you to a specific energetic state.
3. Deep relaxation: This is when your body is able to integrate the positions you have just practiced and heal itself.
4. Meditation: Contains specific, practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra and focus.
5. Closing: After loosening the muscles and raising your energy, we will project that feeling of vitality to others by closing with a blessing.
