Group Yoga Classes

I teach Kundalini yoga classes, which is an integrative yogic system that helps us connect with our true selves and realize our dharma or our highest purpose. It will also help you ignite the passion in your life. My focus is on activating and aligning your chakras with a combination of posture, breathing, meditation and chanting to help you realize your highest potentials.

Group yoga classes are a wonderful way to learn yoga and/ or deepen and improve your current yoga practice in a community of like-minded people who are also committed to upleveling their health. Attending a group yoga class is a great way to have the support of others motivated by health and wellness. It can be hard to motivate yourself to do a regular practice on your own and having the support of a group and a teacher will carry you through during tough times.  They are also an excellent way to build and expand your community. Lets face it, we can’t do this thing called “life” alone. My yoga classes are theme-based series with specific intentions and goals.

Sat Nam! We are offering a Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Intuition Series that goes from Oct 9th- Dec 18th!

Description: 

  • Are you longing to align with your inner truth and listen to your inner guidance system?
  • Do you long to remove blocks to your inner knowing so that you can trust yourself making decisions from the highest place possible? 
  • Would you like to fully activate your intuition, so you can embody your full power and self- expression?

Yogi Bhajan said, “Intuition is never impulsive. Intuition is a calculated, overall, conscious activity. When you say, ‘My sixth sense tells me this, I do not know why,’ it means your sensitivity has gone beyond you, captured and calculated the entire environments and is telling you something.”

A live lived from intuition is a life in tune with one’s purpose and the cosmos.

Please join us on this powerful journey of unlocking your intuitive knowing and awareness in service of your highest destiny.  

Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness, energetic charge and creative unfolding. Through specific combinations of posture, breath, mantra, hand positions, energetic locks and meditation, we gradually awaken our kundalini energy and intuition to infuse our life with purpose and vitality.  As a result, we activate our intuitive knowing, passion and full self expression. When our intuition or our 3rd eye is awakened, we have a deeper sense of trust in ourselves, our relationships, our life as a whole and our life’s work/ dharma. 

In this class series, we will cover basic to intermediate Kundalini Yoga with a specific emphasis on awakening our intuition, the chakras, or subtle energy centers of our awareness. Over the course of 10 weeks we will gradually unfold and expand our awareness of Kundalini energy, strengthening our intuition as a whole, while strengthening our mind, body and spirit along the way.

Though each class can stand on its own, it’s encouraged to attend multiple sessions.  To maximize the full benefits, we recommend attending the whole series. You will still benefit even if you you can’t come to the whole series. 

The classes will take place in our beautiful yurt on wednesday evenings from 7-8:30pm. 

$10-15 Donation/Class (Donation Jar At Entry) or $50 for a 5 class pass and $100 for a 10 class pass. 

We will be alternating teaching classes between the 2 of us. 

We have some mats, but please bring one if you have your own.

Class size limited to 15 people, so please RSVP.
