Classes vary in theme from day to day and week to week that focus on aiding and overcoming just about everything that we experience as human beings: from lifting away bouts of depression to cleansing the liver, balancing the brain hemispheres to strengthening the nervous system! In addition, different classes focus on stretching, toning, and strengthening different muscle groups. Stimulate and lubricate your spinal cord and joints. Blood circulation and lung capacity increase. Oxygenate the body and mind.

Group classes are 90 minutes of fun and high energy – exercising your body, clearing your mind, soothing your emotions and connecting deeply with the Spirit within.

Experiencing the results of Kundalini Yoga leaves you with an overwhelming sense of enthusiasm and the motivation to come back for more.

Gong Meditation

Live Gong, Ancient Teachings, Pranayama

Sound therapy is proven to be one of the most powerful forms of relaxation. It specifically allows in bringing the mind into a balance for an effortless meditation and relaxation. The Gong Meditation is a unique experience: “Your mind, your thoughts, your molecules, your existence psyche, electromagnetic psyche, has no power over this sound.” The vibration of the Gong creates deep relaxation, releasing us from the torrent of thoughts our minds generate.
Let go and allow the Gong to do the work while you relax and receive the benefits. Experience the Infinite within the finite.  Join us for a transformative healing journey into self-discovery, go beyond the frequency of your mental imprints and limitations, and enjoy the deep meditative experience of the Gong.

The Gong impacts the body and its meridians. It releases blocks, reduces tension, stimulates circulation, balances the chakras and strengthens the Aura. The Gong changes the feelings that are obstructed by cutting the thoughts that sustain and recreate the feelings. It is the only instrument the mind has no defense against. The sound waves bring the subconscious mind into a balance and meditative state which allows for an effortless meditation and relaxation that facilitates the movement of prana throughout the body and psyche.
The Gong is a healing tool for body, mind and soul on all levels. Here are some additional benefits of Gong Meditation:

  • Helps repair the nervous system (including damages of alcohol & drugs)
  • Reduces stress related issues: depression, fatigue, anger, hostility, fear and loneliness
  • Stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Creates deep relaxation and induces a spontaneous meditative state
  • Clears the mind and releases you from the torrent of thoughts
  • Clears the sub-conscious mind
  • Accelerates the development of intuitive sensitivity and  visualization
  • Balances all the chakras
  • Enlivens and integrates the 10 bodies of the aura
  • Gives a sense of expanded awareness and higher consciousness
  • Opens the meridians and  releases blocks, reduces tension and stimulates circulation
  • Opens the psychic functions of the sixth chakra/ 3rd eye

 “Gong is the sound of creation. All sounds and all words have come from it. It is the nucleus of all words. It is the multiple, projective sound to put you through. It is not a drum or a musical instrument. It is God. It is reinforced vibration. It is like a million strings vibrating at once. Only instrument in which you can create the space vibrations – where you can become weightless and soundless and go through it.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

Yoga Nidra

Conscious Deep Sleep

Experience one of the greatest methods of meditation with “Yoga Nidra” – Conscious Deep Sleep and get renewed, rejuvenated, and recharged. Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest forms of all meditations, leading awareness through many levels of mental processes to a state of supreme stillness and insight. This method has been known for thousands of years by the sages and yogis, and it refers to the conscious awareness of the Deep Sleep State.

Yoga Nidra was taught by the ancient wisdom teachers for the purpose of exploring the deep impressions or samskaras (past experiences that form desires that influence future responses and behavior which drive our actions or karma). They taught this so that sincere seekers can purify the deeper aspect of the mind-field, which is accessed in the formless state of conscious Deep Sleep. Other benefits:

  • Improves the immune system
  • Improves the quality and the amount of sleep
  • Reduces chronic pain suffering
  • Soothes autonomic nervous system
  • Decreases symptoms of anxiety
  • Helps create new neural pathways in your brain leading to healthy habits & routines
  • Enhances mental focus and attention span
  • Gives more ease and peace of mind in daily life
  • Improves creativity and whole brain functioning
  • Improves your performance at work

Whether you are an experienced meditator or a novice, Yoga Nidra meditation is very easy and you can enjoy the benefits after one session; you just relax on your back, and listen to the instructions given. “Worst case scenario” you’ll have the best relaxation ever! Please wear comfortable clothes & bring a light blanket (or similar) to cover yourself with.

Full Moon Meditation

Elevated Energy, Increase Awareness

During full moon meditation, your energy will be at its highest. Just as the moon impacts the ocean and its tides it has a very powerful effect on body which is comprised of 75% water. We work to channel this energy force to go inward, transcend the mind, and feel the Divinity within.

Come together as a community and help build the foundation of a new world. Practice of this energetic meditation will allow us to relate to the newest generation, and sense everything with “clear, calm and quiet.” Overflow with energy, touch the hearts of others and fill their emptiness!
The effect of all spiritual practice multiplies a thousand fold under the full moon. Your energy will be at its highest. Meditating during the full moon provides an opportunity to connect deeply with our inner wisdom and with nature.

On a full moon day, as the moon frequencies are more active, a heightened activity of the mind is observed. The adverse effect of the full moon is more on the physical or gross body whereas that of new moon is more on the mind. During the Full Moon there is a pressure on your glandular system which can either make us erratic or the same pressure can be used to accelerate healing on all levels!

The time of the full moon is a period when spiritual energies are uniquely available and facilitate a closer rapport between humanity and the Divinity. Immerse yourself in the healing sounds of the LIVE Gong right after the meditation!

New Moon Meditation

New Beginnings, Increase Consciousness

The energy of the New Moon is particularly auspicious for new beginnings: planting new seeds and creating new cycles into motion. It is a perfect day to take a big step on your Spiritual Path. Dedicate New Moons to fresh starts or turning ideas into reality. Begin a new project, meditation, relationship, or a new business. Apply for a job, start a journal, or implement a new personal or professional commitment.

When the Moon is new, the Sun and Moon are aligned in the same sign, and a powerful energy portal is opened. New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you’d like to create, develop, cultivate, make manifest. The new Moon has a more inward feel. It can be described as a distinct cleansing or empty quality. It is the moment when the old passes away and the new is not yet here. That’s why it’s a powerful time for sending out your prayer, wishes and desires to the Universe.

The magic of the new moon is there for one day each month when the sun and the moon are on exactly the same page. Immerse yourself in the healing sounds of the LIVE Gong right after the meditation!
