Intro to Kundalini w/ Deva
Aug 24, 2018 7-9pm
Awaken your potential to self mastery through the science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®,.
Referred to by practitioners as “the yoga of awareness,” the chief aim of Kundalini Yoga is to “..awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual.” Kundalini Yoga focuses on self-development and deep self awareness to generate profound and lasting change in your life. Using these ancient, yet timely teachings you will move beyond subconscious limitations and gain a more authentic sense of your life’s purpose and meaning.
Kundalini Yoga, is a yoga practice which promotes physical and mental conditioning helping people to become stronger and readier to face the challenges of everyday life. It is a way of awakening human consciousness.
Each class includes:
– Postures (asanas)
– Breathing (pranayamas)
– Gong sound bath
Traditional mantras of specific frequency are used as a way of promoting cleansing of the subconscious and it leads the person to a state of peace and tranquility. The combined effects are akin to tuning one’s body to a higher frequency, thus creating a heightened state of consciousness and well-being.
Kundalini Yoga can be a good way to help the person to establish an aligned, integrated and authentic relationship between body, mind and soul.
