stressed? tired? depressed? then yoga nidra is the answer.
yoga nidra offers exceptional benefits over traditional yoga classes. it is a specialized art offering an extreme state of relaxation and consciousness. in fact, a one-hour session is as restful as four hours of regular sleep!
yoga nidra is appropriate for men and women of all ages and abilities and the results are simply outstanding. it can be done anywhere at anytime, on the floor, in a chair, an empty room or park. it is a guided meditation that can be used to relax the entire body and mind. yoga nidra can help you overcome stress, anxiety, fear, anger, depression and insomnia, while at the same time increasing your mental focus, clarity and ability to solve personal and interpersonal problems. people who participate in yoga nidra can accelerate their intake of information while improving their memory and creativity. participants will not only be healthier and relieved of stress, they will be rested, focused and more productive.
kundalini yoga is a quick and effective way to establish an aligned relationship between the body, mind and spirit. It is a process that takes us beyond the mind to where we can follow our hearts.
kundalini yoga is often referred to as the yoga of awareness. it is a technology that teaches you techniques and awareness to stay healthy (physically and mentally). kundalini yoga calms the mind, strengthens the immune system and nervous system to handle stress, balances the glandular and nervous system, cleanses the lymphatic system, detoxifies the liver, lungs and kidneys, helps break unconscious habit patterns and addictions, stretches and builds muscles, increases oxygen supply to the blood and the vital capacity of the lungs improving your health and enjoyment of life.
these results are achieved through pranayam (breath), kriyas (specific physical postures), mantra, deep relaxation and meditation used to heal you physically, mentally and spiritually. classes are open to all levels.
Just as all rivers end up in the ocean, all yoga ends up raising the kundalini. What is kundalini? It is the creative potential of the human being. ~Yogi Bhajan
