Kundalini Yoga includes all elements of the ancient teachings of yoga: Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing tech- niques), Mantra (sound), Mudra (hand positions), and Meditation. These aspects are combined into series of exercises called Kriyas. Some Kriyas are dynamic and energetic, others are slow and meditative.

This ancient system draws upon a vast body of teachings brought to the U.S. by Yogi Bhajan. All levels.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the integrative sleep of the yogis — a combination of alert awareness and deepest relaxation, beyond wakefulness and dreaming. It is an awakening of the deep, deep stillness of what is asleep within you. Yoga Nidra takes you to the alpha and theta states of consciousness, far beyond ordinary waking. Its practice of uses a method of attention and imagery to engage the mind and bring specific body parts into complete relaxation, releasing blockages so that energy flows freely. Higher centers of consciousness are then activated. This is where you have direct access to the extraordinary powers of your own intuition. The aim of Yoga Nidra is to shift out of separative self-image and back to the unified Presence. When you practice Yoga Nidra, you step into sacred territory.
