Kundalini Yin Yoga
Many Eastern traditions observe Yin and Yang as two complementary facets of existence, two sides of the one coin of life. Yin yoga is a passive form of movement practice in contrast with active Yang styles. When one integrates both Yin and Yang practices, a comfortably balanced way of living is obtained. Yin yoga targets deep muscle tissues. In Yin classes we relax into each position for an extended period of time.
Kundalini yoga utilizes the breath to restore homeostatic balance to the body. Kundalini yoga practice gives insight into our body's nervous system and organ function. Dr. Carl Jung first brought Kundalini yoga and the psychology of chakras to Western psychiatry in the 1930's.
In each Kundalini class we will set a positive intention together and explore a variety of soothing mudra (finger yoga), meditation, breathwork, and asana practices you can carry into your every day life to promote improved stillness, purpose, acceptance, happiness, and flexibility. I have found a love of joining Yin and Kundalini practices together to prepare for more active Yang activities. Join a free week of class today!
I have been practicing yoga since 2010. Through practice and teaching, I discovered a passion for Yin and Kundalini yoga. I have years of experience leading yoga classes to hospitalized psychiatric patients and martial artists ranging from ages 4 to 97. My personal learning goal is to deepen my practice through cultural immersion in Rishikesh, India. I'd love to help you start a yoga practice, learn new techniques, or maintain your current practice no matter your age or ability level.
