Yoga

‘The process of growth through Kundalini Yoga is a natural unfolding of your own nature.’

– From The Aquarian Teacher: KRI International Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan

One of the best supports I have found for gracefully moving through life’s challenges is a regular practice of yoga and meditation.

I practice – and teach – a style of yoga called Kundalini Yoga, which is known as the yoga of awareness. Through physical postures, breathwork, chanting, and meditation, we are able to tap into our natural abilities to calm the mind and see clearly the way forward.

Kundalini Yoga can be hard to describe if you’ve never been to a class – I encourage you to give it a try, and see how you feel! While most classes include both physical activity and a short meditation, they can vary a lot from class to class – this variety keeps things fresh and interesting. Classes are designed to be accessible by all kinds of people, and modifications can often be made for physical limitations*.

Interested in learning more? 3HO.org is a great place to start for all kinds of information on Kundalini Yoga and the global Kundalini Yoga community. From time to time, I also write about yoga and meditation, and you can find those pieces here.
