Kundalini Yoga
Instructors: Ramdeep

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient yogic system kept a secret tradition of Raj Yoga in India until its code of secrecy was broken in the late 1960’s when Yogi Bhajan started teaching it publically in the West.

Kundalini Yoga is a remarkable system for keeping the entire body strong and balanced, particularly the nervous system and endocrine system, which become overtaxed in our constantly “tapped-in” society.

Its unique combination of physical asana, pranayam (breathing exercises), mantra and meditation are designed to work on specific body systems to help remove toxins, increase energy and vitality, relieve stress, anger, tension, emotional pain and support all aspects of the mind-body-spirit connection. Kundalini yoga also promotes a deep sense of inner-awareness and connection to help uncover the jewel that lies deep within each one of us.

"When you become calm and still, the universe starts moving for you." –Guru Dev Singh

Class meets on Thursdays from 7:15pm-8:45pm. $75/5 or $18 drop- in.

Svaroopa® Yoga Continuing Classes (You can start here or start with Intro to Svaroopa - either way)
Instructors: Solveig and Tasha

Our bodies start feeling more stiff as we age. Practicing Svaroopa® yoga will help to restore your body's suppleness and flexibility. Through the use of propping and alignment, your muscles are encouraged to release all of the built-up tension that has accumulated over the years.

In these classes, you will be doing poses in a series, working your body from the tailbone to the upper spine. Svaroopa® style yoga is not a vigorous, exercise style of yoga, but rather a deep restorative yoga style that will open up your spine thereby relieving muscle pain and tension. This is a style of yoga that virtually every Body can do.

Svaroopa® Yoga is great for everyone and is particularly good if you have arthritis, back pain, repetitive stress syndrome, the aches and pains of aging or any time you feel achy, or stiff in your body. It is great for anxiety and stress reduction.

Class meets with Solveig on Sundays at 4:30pm, on Wednesdays at 9:30am and 7:30pm and on Fridays with Tasha at 6pm. ( All Svaroopa® Yoga classes are one and one-half hours long.)

Yin/Yang Yoga
Instructor: Jen

This class begins with 15-20 minutes of gentle Hatha flow to balance energies in the body and settle the overactive mind, before moving to the floor for a grounding Yin practice. Yin Yoga consists of passive, sustained holds (3-5 minutes) of seated, prone, and s upine poses. Longer holds nourish and strengthen the connective thissue and bring about self-awareness and compassion. Rooted in Chinese medicine theory, Yin Yoga stimulates energy flow through the meridians, reconnects us to the rhythms of the earth and helps us tap into our innate wisdom. Many props and modifications will be used in both segments of this class, making it suitable for all levels- great to balance out more vigorous forms of yoga or other workouts.

Yoga Coffee Break
Instructor: Jinjer

This yoga class is fun and mindful. We use our muscles in ways that release tension: both through stretches and poses that build strength. We take each person's physical challenges into consideration and modify poses when necessary.

Each person has his or her unique strengths and weaknesses. We are all strong in some areas, weak in others; flexible in certain joints and stiff in others. We tend to judge ourselves by our weaknesses but yoga gives us an opportunity to celebrate our strength and flexibility. It also provides us with a chance to gently and lovingly strengthen our bodies (minds and spirits) where they are weak, and encourage them to flexibility where they are tight.

The last few minutes are devoted to meditation so our bodies can fully integrate the benefits of the class just past. We look forward to meeting you.

Class meets on Thursdays from 1:30pm-3:00pm. $75/6 classes. $15 drop-in.
