Deeply Rooted – A Holy Yoga Practice, Thursdays 7:30-8:30 pm

Deeply Rooted Holy Yoga is for everyone. Come meditate, breathe, worship and move through an abundantly grace-filled class.

Holy Yoga creates an environment to connect more intimately with God through a beautiful practice of breath and movement to contemporary and Christian music. There is often a misunderstanding that yoga is a religion, it is not. Yoga is a spiritual discipline, much like prayer, fasting and meditation. Yoga has the capacity to enhance our personal beliefs and faith.

Thursdays from 7:30 – 8:30 pm

Donation based

Kundalini Yoga w/Hannah Zackney – February 24th

Sunday, February 24, the 4th Sunday of every month from 4:30-5:45 pm
Love without trust is impossible. If you break promises to yourself you will destroy your own trust. You must trust yourself before you can fully love anyone else.
Kundalini Yoga has taught me to trust my instincts, intuition and encouraged me to accept and know myself in a way that was previously unknown to me. Kundalini yoga offers endless tools to enhance this process. It will strengthen the heart chakra. It will build courage and resilience. It will wake you up. It has been said that a student cannot remain the same when they practice Kundalini Yoga. It will awaken the energy of consciousness, shed light on our self-imposed limitations and invites us to trust our intuitive mind. Kundalini will create dramatic, lasting changes in your life very quickly.
You will:
  • Learn the history, purpose, benefits and origins of Kundalini Yoga
  • Experience a kriya (a specific set of exercises with particular breath work in a particular order to achieve a specific outcome)
  • Experience a Kundalini meditation
  • Understand the power & grace of this practice
Sat Nam! (Truth is my (and your) Identity)
Kundalini classes will be offered the 4th Sunday of every month from 4:30 – 5:45 pm
  • February 24th
  • March 24th *from 6:00-7:15 pm
  • April 28th

Yoga Goals – by Kailey Herron

“The renunciation of doing harm is the perfection of discipline.” -Shantideva
Shantideva was an 8th century Buddhist monk whose teachings continue to be relevant long after his death. As Yogis, our first and most important guideline is the idea of non-harm or ahimsa. Thankfully, most of us don’t need a guideline encouraging us not to punch anyone we disagree with. And certainly on our mats, it’s wise to move mindfully so we don’t hurt ourselves. But ahimsa is actually much larger and nuanced than just not beating up our bodies (or kicking the dog). It takes awareness and commitment. This is why Shantideva calls it the perfection of discipline. Whatever we practice, grows. If we practice even small harms – be it through our actions, words, or even our thoughts – those things grow. Do we indulge habits that break us down without giving us much in return? How often are we self-critical or judgmental of others? Do we speak unkind words behind a friend or family member’s back? You get the idea of how much discipline it would take to live a life free from all forms of harming. Any form of impatience or jealousy, judgement or aggression is a place to focus compassionate curiosity and practice the discipline of non-harming. If we practice replacing hurtful thoughts, words, and actions with gentleness and compassion, our experience of life softens. It is said that anyone who masters this skill will exist in a state of fearlessness – nothing to fear and no creature, human or animal to fear them. Saint Francis was an example of a being who thoroughly embodied ahimsa. Although I may fall short (countless times a day usually) in my efforts to live a harmless life, I think these big and idealistic aspirations are often exactly what we should set our sights on. Why not see how close we can get while reaping the benefits along the way?

Less Harm and More Love,
Kailey

Learn About Our Heat……FAR Infrared

solarlThe unique and natural heat that is only offered at Radiant Yoga actually is radiant. When exposed to the healing powers of FAR Infrared Heat as opposed to standard forced air used at other studios, your body is being warmed directly instead of being surrounded by artificially warmed air. This heat therapy works against creating dust and debris that can aggravate the common health problems of forced air. When your body undergoes exposure to FIR heat in our Radiant Yoga studio, the heat will penetrate within your body as far as 3 inches deep. This penetration results in increased blood circulation and the breakdown of toxin-filled large water molecules urging your body to rid itself of toxins and waste through perspiration and through the healing practice of yoga.
