Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is the Yoga of Awareness.

Kundalini Yoga is a discipline in which you can develop the perfect balance between mind, body and soul. Kundalini Yoga gives you tools to expedite your spiritual growth and healing. Kundalini Yoga allows the release of blocked energy, balances body and mind and integrates these, helping you recognize your own potential, an experience of the depth of your soul and true identity. As a result, this direct experience of your higher self builds a platform of strength, radiance, and security on which to build your life, improving your health and developing a more focused and directed mind that allows you to live in harmony.

Kundalini Yoga also provides more well-known benefits: stress alleviation, increased flexibility, expanded lung capacity, and a strong core.

Kundalini Yoga is not a religion. When we apply the technology of Kundalini Yoga to our bodies and minds, it has the effect of uplifting the spirit. It is for everyone. It is universal and nondenominational.

“Kundalini Yoga is not a religion. Religions come out of it. Kundalini Yoga is not a fad, and it’s not a cult. It’s a practice of experience of a person’s own excellence, which is dormant and which is awakened.”
-Yogi Bhajan, 7/26/96

Sadhana Acuariana

Aquarian Sadhana is offered every Wednesday and Sunday at 4:30 am. We come together in spirit, body and mind to infinity. It’s a core part of the practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. This practice is of extraordinary benefit as we prepare ourselves to serve the universe and the universe also serves us. This is one of the most extraordinary aspects of the Kundalini Yoga tradition but it’s a good idea to know more about what to expect before you attend. 

Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. Any form of meditation, yoga, or spiritual activity can be a form of sadhana. In Sanskrit, sadhana literally means accomplishing something. You set a task as a goal and you accomplish it, in the service of worship of the divine or elevation of your spirit. Morning sadhana isn’t too tricky to decipher. It’s a spiritual practice that you do first thing in the morning.

Sadhana helps to raise the Kundalini energy and bring self-awareness and personal victory. You’ll hear of people doing all kinds of different meditations or kriyas, the name for a Kundalini yoga set, as a part of their morning sadhana practice. The mother of all morning sadhana practices is called the Aquarian Sadhana, which is practiced all over the world by Kundalini yogis.

Aquarian Sadhana is a series of spiritual practices done during the amrit vela, the 2 1/2 hours before the rise of the sun, given by Yogi Bhajan, the Master of Kundalini Yoga. It operates under the principle of karma, meaning that whatever you give comes back tenfold, so with 2 1/2 hours given to the Divine, your entire day is covered with blessings. It is called the “Aquarian” sadhana because it was meant to carry humanity through the current age we find ourselves in, the Aquarian Age, astrologically speaking. The 2 1/2 hours is divided into four parts: preparation for Sadhana, recitation of Sikh prayers, Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian mantras. This practice can be done individually but when practiced in a group, we receive additional energetic benefits.

It does require discipline to accomplish, and the practice itself develops the grit to continue, but there’s a tremendous sweetness in the practice that shouldn’t be overlooked. Keep an open mind and an open heart to the practice, as it is a profoundly transformational tool. And it offers a deep practice of yoga for the more committed practitioner.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is based on a series of asanas (different yoga postures) and pranayamas (breathing exercises) that help bring peace to the mind and body.

There are seven main benefits we can acquire from this practice:

1.Improves our immune system – When you contract and stretch muscles, move organs around, and come in and out of yoga postures, you increase the drainage of lymph. This helps the lymphatic system fight infection, destroy cancerous cells, and dispose of the toxic waste products of cellular functioning

2. Relaxes the mind and releases tension in the body – Yoga really encourages you to focus on your breath, which relaxes the mind. Whether you are trying to find ease in a difficult pose or you are practicing yin yoga, the breath will help you calm the mind and release tension in the body.

3. Tones the spine – All of our nerves branch out from the spine, connecting the various organ systems to the brain. It is said that if the spine is rigid, nerve impulses cannot flow freely through the body and internal organs become weakened and subject to disease. If you keep the spine supple, the nerves remain strong and your health is maintained.

4. Strengthens and tones the body – Yoga poses are weight bearing, are held for varying lengths of time, and are repeated multiple times during a practice. It is a great option for functional fitness since it allows your body to be both strengthened and stretched in positions that your body is naturally in on a day-to-day basis.

5. Increases flexibility – There are two major schools of scientific thought on what actually most limits flexibility and what should be done to improve it. The first school focuses not on stretching muscle fiber itself but on increasing the elasticity of connective tissues, the cells that bind muscle fibers together, encapsulate them, and network them with other organs; the second addresses the “stretch reflex” and other functions of the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system. Yoga works on both. That’s why it’s such an effective method for increasing flexibility.

6. Helps with cravings – When your body is off balance, you have all sorts of cravings (who doesn’t??). Yoga is great for balancing our systems and helping to curb all sorts of wacky things such as oversleeping, overeating, the desire to drink or smoke, eat sugar and more!

7. Good Health – It is said the practice of yoga will help us achieve these “symptoms”: Real hunger, good digestion, sound sleep, perfect functioning of the various organs of the body, proper pulsation, timely elimination of wastes, interest in doing one’s duties, and happiness of mind.

Enjoy your practice and stay mentally, physically and spiritually fit!

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa means “flow“, movement or position. This style of yoga not only makes one very strong and flexible, but also improves muscle tone, confidence and boosts self image.

Vinyasa Yoga is the strength-building, flexibility-improving, stamina-increasing, mind-calming cardiovascular exercise that will ensure you get the most “workout” out of your yoga session. It’s the perfect one-and-done, endorphin-filled practice that will leave you feeling both accomplished andgrounded.

The teacher incorporates methods from both Hatha and Vinyasa practices into her class and personal sequencing.
Her Western students seem to be most familiar with Vinyasa styles of yoga, generally giving it the upper hand as the more dynamic, and intense style of yoga. It should not go unnoticed that to balance your practice with Hatha styles will bring greater benefits, staying true and authentic to the lifelong practice of yoga.
A yoga practitioner benefits most from the use of both – movement and stillness.

Mandalas

Following the yoga practice we offer a mandala making class where the children’s imaginations can soar! Here, children are guided through the process of making their own unique mandalas, giving them a creative outlet for expression while honoring beautiful ancient traditions. The origin of the word mandala comes from Sanskrit, and means “perfect circle.” According to their definition, they are symbolic spiritual forms used in Hinduism and Buddhism. They are constituted or represented by a set of figures and concentric geometric shapes. They’re supposed to symbolize the universe and its characteristics. Their primary objective is to promote serenity, reflection, and the concentration of energy at one point. Therefore, the benefits of mandalas for children are multiple. Here are some of them:

1. Generate circular harmony -The mandalas’ circular form and drawings help people to order their inner-self. Because of this, it can be very beneficial for children to color in mandalas from a very early age. Thanks to visual stimulation, this encourages them to create, imagine and find harmony in their emotional disorder.

2. Enhance concentration- Ideally, children should concentrate and be silent when coloring in mandalas. Depending on the complexity of each one, the benefits obtained will vary. The cognitive processes they will use to color in the mandala will increase, and their imagination, attention and flexibility will improve. The child must finish the mandala in order to achieve the visual and emotional effect it offers them. Children are usually very keen to finish them, so that they can show them off to their family and friends. This stimulates their capacity for responsibility and achievement, and in turn, this will increase their self-esteem.

3. Perfect partners for children with special needs- In addition, for children born with Down’s syndrome or those who suffer from any type of autism, painting a mandala will be of great help in controlling their movements. It promotes relaxation and helps them express themselves. In addition, hyperactive children will find this activity to be a fun way to be calm and relaxed.

4. Help develop coordination and psychomotor skills- The use of mandalas can help strengthen a child’s hand-eye coordination. It also helps motor skills in the hands and fingers. This has the effect of gradually enhancing brain connections in children between two and eight years of age. In addition to these benefits, it helps children improve the accuracy of their writing skills, as well as the skills needed to tie shoelaces or manipulate certain objects.

5. Increase their self-esteem – This is one of the most striking benefits of mandalas for children. In coloring in mandalas, a child creates their own original drawing, and develops their cognitive and psychological abilities. In this way, their self-esteem increases, making them more confident in themselves. They will be able to face difficulties that come their way much more effectively.
