Kundalini Yoga & Meditation
A typical class begins with chanting, ends with singing, and in between features asana, pranayama, and meditation designed to create a specific outcome. Expect to encounter challenging breathing exercises, including the rapid pranayama known as Breath of Fire, mini-meditation, mantras, mudras (sealing gestures), and movement-oriented postures, often repeated for minutes, that will help you find and possibly surpass what you consider your edge, all to your current capacity. The focus is on lasting rather than going deep. Hatha yoga postures or asanas are secondary. No hands-on assists are given in Kundalini, and there are no levels such as introductory or advanced.
Yoga Bhajan's Birthday
Following a longstanding tradition in the global Kundalini community, on the occasion of Yogi Bhajan's birthday (Sunday, August 26th) we will gather together in the early hours of the morning and chant the Adi Shakti Mantra (a.k.a Long Ek Ong Kar's or Morning Call) continuously for 2 1/2 hours. We will complete this special sadhana by chanting the Guru Ram Das chant for 11 minutes. Kundalini Yogis all over the world will be participating in this powerful meditative experience.
3:15am doors open
3:30am sharp Long Ek Ong Kar Chant
6:00am Guru Ram das Chant
6:15am Long Time Sun
This is a free event that we hope you will join in! If you are thinking of bringing a friend please know they are always welcome, however, this practice is not recommended for those who are newer to the Kundalini Practice. There will be no movement and the chant can be challenging as it is maintained for 2 1/2 hours.
Enjoy Yogi Tea and light snacks after the sadhana!
