Kundalini Yoga Series w/Hannah Zackney

“The Purpose in Life is to be HAPPY”– The Dali Lama

We live in a world where people are sacrificing most anything to satisfy their OWN desires. If not careful, we can damage others and ourselves in this hasty quest.

We crave happiness and connection. Kundalini Yoga has beautiful teachings to support these human needs.

We are happiest when we celebrate another’s wins or uplift a difficult situation, even when it costs us something. When connected to the Infinite we readily serve with compassion.

“The secret of happiness is in your power to sacrifice and uplift others. Happiness is in giving, not in taking. God will give to you. Trust in the fact! Happiness is our birthright. There is no argument about it. Give your mind a chance.”
-Yogi Bhajan

Kundalini Yoga offers many deep and profound meditations to develop human sensitivity and human vastness. As we open to the higher centers, we begin to experience our lives as part of an endless giving cycle. We give to others. The Infinite gives to us. There is no lack, no fear and no reaction. Happiness comes from being in that flow.

Happiness is the crowning result of developing our consciousness and personality. When we enter the state of happiness, then we are capable of living for each other.

Join Hannah for this 4 week series to increase your consciousness in effort to support your deep sense of happiness.

Sound Healing – Sunday, 3/15 from 4:00-5:30 pm

Join us the second Sunday of every month for Sound Healing. Sound is not just perceived by our ears but by every cell in the body. The powerful vibrations of the gong and the sweet sound of each note of the crystal bowls will meditate you, clear meridians, open chanels and chakras releasing the flow of Kundalini energy to ascend up the central channel from the root chakra, balancing and aligning your system.
As you allow blocked emotions to loosen in this process and gently release that which no longer serves you into the sound, you activate your inherent ability to heal and awaken. Let the sound do the work as you release stress, deeply relax and come into balance.
Please register in advance and come hydrated and comfortably dressed. We recommend bringing a yoga mat, small pillow for your head and light blanket to support your experience.

Investment – $25 pre registration, $30 at the door

Ashtanga Led Primary – Fridays, noon – 1:30 pm!

Ashtanga Yoga is divided into six distinct series. In this, the Primary Series, we explore the grounding postures which will begin to purify the body, strengthen the core, dramatically increase mobility in the hips and knees, and open the shoulders and hamstrings. We will also learn how to breathe efficiently to generate internal heat and bring calm to our minds.

The Primary Series is framed by the familiar Sun Salutations, standing postures and twists, and a calming, restorative closing sequence. Hands-on assistance, adjustments and modifications are an integral part of Ashtanga, and no previous experience is required. Recommended for all students with a regular Power Vinyasa practice.

Fridays, noon – 1:30 pm *starting 11/8

Regular class rates apply.

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 – May 24th

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)
The 4th Sunday of every month from 4:30 – 5:45 pm

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,
