Evelyne Serais instructs the following:
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.
Conscious Sleep (Yoga Nidra)
Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of meditation that will take you into the deepest levels of relaxation while still remaining fully aware. It is practiced lying down in savasana (on your back, in corpse pose). Yoga Nidra induces complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Yoga Nidra helps to reduce the tensions that create stress, disease and unhappiness. Those tensions are physical tensions, emotional tensions, and mental tensions. You are guided through a series of meditations and visualizations.
Level 1 & 2 Yoga
Mixed level yoga class. Options are offered for different levels. Beginners are better off in Gentle or Level 1.
Yoga Nidra & Gong Relaxation
Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of guided meditation that will take you into the deepest levels of relaxation while still remaining fully aware. The gong creates an elemental vibration that resets our magnetic field, allowing us to transcend the habitual energetic layers of the mind. This workshop includes mindful breathing and intention setting, yoga nidra, and gong relaxation.
