Kundalini Yoga is a style of yoga that is at least 5,000 years old.  B.J.’s gentle and practical teaching style focuses on developing the breath to release stress and rejuvenate the body, as well as moving at the individual’s pace and energy level.  While releasing stress, flexibility, strength, and stamina are also improved.  Kundalini Yoga works to improve the function of many “systems” of the body; the nervous system, immune system, digestive system, circulatory system, and more.  A strong meditative component teaches how to focus the mind on what is important, and to let go of the things that are not so important, creating inner strength and steadiness.

Awaken the body, mind, and spirit in this challenging, fun, and nurturing class.  Rather than achieving a “perfect” posture, focus on achieving the correct alignment for your body, being present with the breath, and finding a calm vitality.  This class will help develop flexibility, strength, lung capacity, and stress tolerance.  Learn breathing techniques to give mastery over moods, daytime energy, and a peaceful night’s sleep.

Meditation is an integral part of Kundalini Yoga.  Research shows that Kundalini techniques are especially effective in affecting the brain in a positive way, by improving memory and cognition, awakening awareness, lifting your mood, and assisting the healing process.  Kundalini Yoga meditations can bring fast, powerful, and positive change.

This class is suitable for beginners or experienced students.
