An uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices, Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras. The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.
A classic Kundalini Class involves pranayama practice followed by a Kriya (sequence of postures or actions to gain a specific result) followed by relaxation and meditation to close.
The Kriya's are suitable for all abilities of any ages and adaptations can be made. The classes are not suitable for pregnancy. Music and mantra is a huge part of Kudalini Yoga. Get ready to raise your vibration and sing up!
It is best to come to class on an empty stomach. Please hydrate several hours before coming to class or drink more the night before for a morning class. You can bring water for inside the hot room, but little sips are best.
