About the Event:
The world is facing more conflict. Income inequality continues to grow both here in D.C. and across the globe. We are facing increasing threat from a changing climate. Many of us are feeling the pain many parts of our world are experiencing.
But there are increasing numbers of people focused on raising their individual and the collective consciousness - embracing truth, love, gratitude and compassion in the present rather than living in fear. How can we fuel ourselves within to persevere and share our gifts in the midst of all this conflict?
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is an amazing technology that gives us the strength to thrive from within - with truth as our identity in the oneness of the universe. Seizing the peace and power within during these stressful times will enable us to seize our inner love while serving others at a time of great need. With yoga kriyas (or sets of exercises) and profound meditative practices, Kundalini Yoga is a unique and powerful practice that complements other yoga and spiritual practices well.
Kundalini Yoga is for Everyone. It is practical but also very powerful. It works to quickly give you grace, balance, and most of all, the ability to remain calm, centered and clear throughout life's challenges. As you practice Kundalini Yoga you will grow. You will gain new perspectives and capacities, as well as habits that support a healthy lifestyle. The best part is, you don't need any previous experience in yoga in order to achieve results with your very first class.
Join us at 6AMWednesday morning July 8th to explore the technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. All levels are welcome. The series will provide a diverse experience with plenty of explanation for the new student, whether you have done yoga in the past or not. You will learn about the core elements of the practice while experiencing the depth of this powerful technology and learn about how this technology can fuel you for your future.
