Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a dynamic class designed for the busy householder yogi who needs to recharge and rejuvenate body, mind, and energy field. The constant barrage of negativity we all face clogs our very essence, and Kundalini is an immediate way to not only clear that negativity, but fill ourselves up with beautiful crystal clear light waves of happiness. Each class consists of a prescribed Kriya (complete action), relaxation and meditation. We utilize sustained movements of the body to circulate prana (life force energy) and change the (stuck) energy patterns in the body. A different experience, appropriate for all levels of practitioner - beginners always welcome!
Traditional Kundalini apparel (all white) welcomed, though certainly not required. Come prepared to move, chant, laugh and have direct experience that is like no other.
Wake up the body with this bright, flowing class. Energize and stretch out for ease of movement in your day ahead. 
Your weekly repose. This class combines the deeply blissful and transformative practice of restorative yoga with the power of healing touch. Long holds in restful poses and subtle stretches are guided with yogic massage, herbal compounds, and a dreamy playlist.

Find depth in the basics. This class makes the hard poses easy, and the easy poses hard. Beginners and more experienced practitioners alike can benefit from attention to fundamentals. We use the same alignment and actions to build a foundation or strengthen it. We open ourselves to what’s new by reinforcing the familiar.
