Kundalini (coiled serpent in Sankrit) refers to the energy lying dormant at the base of the spine. In most people it never escapes the lower triangle or 1st three chakras. Kundalini Yoga is the system of awakening this energy and allowing it to rise up the spine to the higher, more spiritual energy centers. This is done through movements, pranayama, mantras, mudras, bhandas (locks), and meditation. The combination of all of these exercises activates the glands and endocrine system, strengthens the nervous system, expands the lung capacity, and eliminates toxins in the blood. For most people it is an effective cure for depression, addiction, anxiety and insomnia.

The students will learn how to move chi throughout the body, from areas of excess to areas where its depleted, and allowing areas where it may have become stagnant to flow again. The natural balance of energy that results will improve physical vitality and calm the mind. In this empowering self-care class experientially learn to clear your energy field, improve oxygen absorption, increase clarity and centeredness, as well as regulate & build your Qi (life force energy, pronounced “chee”) and balanced boundaries through Qi Gong, Meditation and Breath work.
