Kundalini Yoga & Meditation on Zoom
Wednesdays Live at 8am
Investment: Love Offering
Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness, is an ancient yogic technology that harnesses the energies of the body, emotions, mind and spirit to remove energetic blockages, expand awareness, create energetic and systemic harmony and inspire transformation, peace and positivity. This "householders yoga" encourages resilience and enhance ones' ability to cope with the challenges of our time.
During a session, we will use specific movements and postures, conscious breathing (pranayama), eye focus (drishti), mudras (hand positions), mantras and meditations to activate and harmonize the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energies.
My classes are intended for all level of experience and fitness. We will utilize the foundational practices of kundalini yoga to regulate the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, purify the blood and to harmonize the body, mind, and spirit. The physical and mental practices prepare the body for the transformative effects of the meditation.
Here is a general idea of what to expect in a class.
Tuning In Prayer
Pranayam (breathing) Exercise
Warm-ups - Yogic movement to warm and prepare the body
Kriya -Kundalini Yogic Sets that include movement, breath, mantra and focus
Meditation - To bless and expand
You do not need to have any experience with yoga or kundalini yoga in order to participate. I will include modifications for the exercises so that they do-able for almost everyone.
There are a few things that you may want to have on hand for the best possible experience.
Comfortable Clothing - In Kundalini Yoga, we like to wear natural fiber clothing (cotton or linen) whenever possible. It is nice but not necessary. You will want to wear clothing that is comfortable and that will move with you. During meditation, you may want a sweater, scarf or sweatshirt to keep you warm.
Yoga Mat - I love my natural rubber mat. It is 8mm is thick and non-slip. Most yoga mats are 4mm. If you are working on a hard surface, try to get a thicker mat to better support your practice. There are many options available in local stores and on the internet.
Meditation Cushion or Yoga Bolster - I have a crescent buckwheat bolster made by PeaceYoga that changed my life. You can remove some of the buckwheat to create the perfect fit. It is available on amazon for $31.99. You will need to have something to support your seat for the best meditation experience. Natural fiber is always the good choice.
Small Natural Fiber Blankets or Towels - You can use them to cushion your knees and rolled up under each knee to support your hips while in meditation.
Strap - It is good to have a strap for stretching, especially if you are not super flexible. You can also use a towel, a belt, a scarf or anything that you have handy.
Water or Tea - You will want to have water or tea available. This yoga involves a great deal of breathwork and your throat or mouth may get dry. It is good to stay hydrated.
Journal- You may have an "AHA" moment during meditation. It is nice to have a journal handy to record your experiences.
