Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a dynamic form of yoga that combines breath, movement, meditation, rhythmic sound and deep relaxation. It is practical for the average person, because it works to release tension and energize in a short period of time, regardless of degree of flexibility or experience.
These classes are taught in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan who first brought Kundalini Yoga to the west in 1969. This yoga is taught in specific sequences of exercises (kriyas) that create optimum health by strengthening the immune system, balancing the glands and creating a heightened level of awareness.
Stay Healthy with Kundalini Yoga In this ongoing class, we will use numerology, astrology and the 5 Elements of Oriental and Ayurvedic Medicines to increase your understanding of the stresses of the time. Join us as we focus our kriyas (exercise), pranayama (breath), mantra (healing sounds) and meditations to heal us in the days, months and seasons of 2017. Monday nights, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Sat Nam Yogis and Yoginis,
No class February 27, 2017
February can be a challenging month for maintaining health. The outside cold may keep us inside without enough exercise, and the dampness may increase the tendency to "catch" a cold.
Helpful tips are to drink warm teas, eat less or no meat and dairy, eat beans and rice, eat warm soups with copious amounts of ginger and spicy chili. Keep your agni (digestive fire) high with exercise and spice your food with black pepper, cumin, coriander, fennel, cardamom and fresh ginger.
This is the perfect time of year to practice Breath of Fire . Dr. Lad, an Ayurvedic practitioner in New Mexico, said that one can lose one pound of body weight with 1000 breaths per day (10 min.) of breath of fire. This breath improves thyroid function and regulates weight.
He also said that after practicing Breath of Fire, the excess Vata energy calms. This breath can clear female problems like HPV, PCOS and fibroid tumors, normalize blood sugar, and reduce cholesterol & triglycerides. Do not do breath of fire during menses, pregnancy or lactating or in the case of a recent heart attack, hernia or surgery. (This info was shared by Deva Khalsa, NM)
