Tuning In

Kundalini Yoga Classes always begin with an opening mantra to tune in mentally, physically, and spiritually. The Adi Mantra - Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo is chanted 3 times. This is a tool to relate instantly to the divine teacher within, and to center us in the higher self. It is also our connection to the teacher and the Golden Chain of teachers, yogis and sages, who have come before.

Pranayam (Breath Work) or Warm-up

Kundalini Yoga utilizes breathwork, or pranayama, to effect and manage different states of consciousness, relaxation, and well-being.

Kriya

A Kriya is an exact combination of postures, breathing and sound that have a specified outcome to balance body, mind and spirit while increasing mental clarity and physical vitality.

Relaxation

Deep Relaxation (Savasana) is often called the most important pose in yoga. This is where the magic happens. We work our glandular and nervous systems hard in practice, and then in relaxation, we allow it all to integrate!

Meditation

Kundalini Yoga meditations , practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra (chanting), mudra (hand locks) and eye focus. There are thousands of Kundalini Yoga meditations each having a specific effect and outcome. Wanting to calmthemind? Thereisanappforthat!

Closing

We close each Kundalini Yoga class by singing The Long Time Sun song along with chanting Sat Nam. (Truth is my identity).

Come Early...

Create and account on our website and sign up for one of our New Student Specials. Arrive to the studio AT LEAST 10–15 minutes before the class time starts. If you must sneak in a few minutes late, be mindful. Come in quietly, and simply join in the practice.

Shhhhh...

Please be mindful and QUIET in the reception area and community spaces at all times. Many of our classes are meditative in nature and we want to maintain a serene and peaceful environment for you and our other community members.

What to Bring...

Although we have a few mats, blankets, bolsters, and blocks to borrow, we ask that you bring your own mat and yoga blanket when possible. Your yoga mat will become your sacred practice isnpfaucse,d with your beautiful energy, sweat, and tears.

Be comfortable...

Wear loose, natural fiber clothing for Kundalini Yoga, white if you have it. You may also wish to wear a white headcover - head coverings of any kind are useful for a meditative practice. This is a suggestion only - feel free to come as you are... For other classes, yoga pants, or loose clothes are worn. Just be free to move and invert. Bottom line, don’t stress about this, be comfortable and able to move freely without having to fuss with your apparel.

Food and Drinks...

Please limit your food intake an hour or more, prior to class. Water, water, water. Bring a full water bottle with you. If you need more, we have a water filling station.

Be open-minded!

Your first couple of classes can be a bit overwhelming. Many students have never chanted, done conscious breathing, or attempted to meditate, and find these practices un-nerving. Commitment is the 1st step on the pathway to happiness, so commit to yourself for the full length of your introductory offer. Although yoga is a spiritual practice. It is NOT a religion. We have students of all faiths and denominations practicing Kundalini Yoga and other meditative forms, without compromising their integral spiritual beliefs.

 

Give it time to see how things “shift” within you. It is not always easy, and at times it can be down - right challenging. The yoga and the sound healing can bring up profound internal shifts which at times can feel uncomfortable. Connect to the breath, to community, and ke ep showing up! We all
need to take the emotional/mental trash to the curb in order to find peace and happiness in our lives.

Sound Healing...

We are one of the largest distributors of Crystal Tones Alchemy Singing bowls in the nation. We have 3 gongs, and over 150 Crystal Singing Bowls for use in classes, and for sale. They have a profound healing and clearing effect on the the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. At times, students may experience emotional or physical discomfort as energy moves, clears, and clears the psyche. If this should occur, feel resolved in know it shall pass. Connect to the breath, and consciously relax. Slow the breathing and breathe long deep breaths in and out through the nose. Take a salt bath to ground you if you feel anxious after class. Know that any emotion or feelings that arise are ok. We want to clear things out! “Up and out!” This paves the way for deep healing.

Ask questions and connect...


Your teachers and the front desk staff are here in service to you, our community. Feel free to ask questions! If we do not know, we WILL find out. Chat with other students... if inside the studio, speak quietly, and be mindful of others who may be seeking a peaceful moment. That being said, get to know each other. Share your experiences.
