Meditating in Nature

kundalini yoga

low intensity

Kundalini Yoga is the original of the twenty-two schools of yoga & is called the "mother yoga." It works on your entire nervous & glandular system. The word "kundalini" means awareness & manifesting the hidden potential of that awareness. In the yogic tradition Kundalini energy is portrayed as a coiled serpent lying dormant at the base of the spine. To raise the Kundalini means to awaken & enliven this creative energy.

Kundalini Yoga is an effective way to both strengthen & stretch the muscles. The increased flexibility gained will help prevent injury & avoid pain. In addition, because Kundalini Yoga incorporates the physical aspects of yoga, along with the mind & spirit, into an integrated system, you gain a working understanding of the mind/body connection. The meditations you learn will improve your concentration & focus which will improve your ability to function at your best. Finally, you will feel refreshed & attentive after each session indicating a stronger & more balanced immune & nervous system. Each class includes meditation, a series of exercises & deep relaxation.

Aromatherapy Oil

yin

low intensity

Yin is a particularly deep & meaningful practice, which brings you into stillness of the body, breath & mind- something we all seem to crave more in our fast paced & constantly connected world. Yin yoga targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, bones & joints, as well as the meridians of the body. Yin yoga challenges the practitioner to slow down & be aware of the present moment - lingering in poses & finding stillness of the body, breath & mind. Regular practice helps to enhance the flow of energy, release restrictions & promote healing on a physical & emotional level. Suitable for all levels, with great regenerative potential for the dedicated practitioner.
