During this retreat and teacher training module we will explore techniques from the Kundalini Yoga tradition. Kundalini Yoga is often more specific than your typical yoga class; rather than focusing on physical alignment the kriyas work on raising and organizing energy to bring you to a state of greater awareness. It includes energizing movement, powerful breath-work, heart-opening chants, and many sweet and deeply relaxing moments in between.
Even in the yoga world, some consider Kundalini yoga a bit strange. While Hatha Yoga is focused on the physical practices, Kundalini Yoga includes postures, as well as the more subtle techniques of breath, mantra, mudra, and meditation. Originally, Hatha Yoga was aimed at students who could withdraw from normal life and spend years studying yoga in remote locations. The beauty of Kundalini Yoga is its effective way to reach physical, mental and spiritual balance. The purpose of Kundalini Yoga and Hatha Yoga is the same: to raise awareness. The only difference is that Kundalini Yoga offers a more direct path, making it an excellent practice for householders.
Experience how sound can guide us on the journey of self discovery! A Sound Bath is a dreamy experience where tuning forks, Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, gongs, shakers, and other instruments are played intuitively. A Sound Bath promotes deep relaxation and peace. It brings a contemplative inner awareness of the now and helps to open the body’s energetic system. Enjoy and learn to create a transformative Sound Bath experience.
