Classes & private trainings
Kundalini Yoga
Originally taught by Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga is a powerful practice using kriyas - sequences - with an aim to create specific effects physically, mentally and emotionally. Apart from the asanas - which in many cases can be very different from traditional Hatha Yoga - and the related breath work, each class will also include a meditation.

Gong Bath
The sound of a meditation gong induces a state of spontaneous meditation and relaxation, which facilitates the movement of chi or prana (positive life force) throughout the body. On a physical level, the vibrations eliminate tension, stimulate the circulation and glandular systems, and regenerate the parasympathetic nervous system. Listeners experience a sense of connectedness and peace. They are lulled from a Beta, or awake state, into a Theta, or lucid dream state; a state that allows our bodies to heal and rejuvenate. The sound waves gently clear blockages to restore inner harmony. Other benefits include calming the mind and stopping internal dialogue; rebalancing the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies; and awakening higher states of consciousness that are conducive to healing and transformation. A gong bath lets your entire body relax, renew and rejuvenate. In turn, this leaves you feeling content, clear headed, energetic and optimistic.
