Thursday, 7:15pm – 8:15pm, Gong Bath with Amrit –  total relaxation and stress release describes this class. Body temperature can drop during deep relaxation so, bring a blanket and socks! Begins with warm-up stretches to prepare you for relaxation followed by a 25 – 30 minute Gong Bath.  Gong Bath is a sound massage for the mind and body. This isn’t a loud, banging sound but, a soft shamanic drumming rhythm to sooth your nervous system and relax your brain. Sound washes over you gently enabling deep healing, block clearing, tension release, bringing harmony to your whole body for improved health.  It’s common to twitch, realign and even sleep during a sound healing, and to have images or feel  you are on an inner journey.  To maximize the healing effect, before the Gong Bath, add an intention and visualize healing and/or positive outcome for any situation in your life. Complimentary Yogi tea for liver and nervous system support included.

 

Friday, 6pm – 7:15pm, Kundalini Yoga Workout with Amrit  is a workout class followed by a gong meditation for relaxation.  Complimentary Yogi tea for liver and nervous system support included.

New Students and Beginners:  Tips to get the most out of your Yoga Classes

  • Take 4 – 12 classes a month to start. Build up gradually to unlimited classes.
  • Focus on breathing techniques the first month. Practice at home as often as possible.
  • Respect your body’s limitations! Modify as needed. Pace yourself, rest when needed. Go gently into a stretch – NEVER force.
  • Women: if on monthly cycle, ask your teacher for modifications.
  • If you must stop, maintain the breathing, mantra and focus, you will benefit from the entire group energy.
  • We have a limited supply of mats, blankets and pillows in case you forget.
  • Attire: loose, comfortable clothing, casual, nothing fancy. If you have long hair, it helps to put it up.
  • Refrain from eating heavily before class. If you must eat, keep it light.
  • Attend regularly. Progress is directly related to attendance.
  • Bring a friend, the more, the merrier!

 

  Kundalini Yoga, taught by experienced, certified instructors, great for beginning and experienced students!  You will relax, rejuvenate and regenerate with Kundalini Yoga, an ancient scientific technology for happiness! You will balance the glandular system, strengthen nervous system, and tap into the energy of your mind and emotions, so you can be in control of yourself, rather than by your thoughts and feelings. Kundalini Yoga impacts all aspects of physical, mental and spiritual being. You will experience better functioning of bodily systems, increased radiance and impact, emotional balance, enhanced intuition, relaxation, well being and elimination of negative habit patterns. You will learn mental focus, breathing techniques, mantras (sound vibration), postures (body positions), mudras (hand positions), and meditation.  Beautiful, spiritual music is provided to deepen your experience. Plus, at the end of each class you will relax profoundly with a meditation.

Gong Meditation:  “The gong is not an ordinary thing . . . Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words . . .  it is not a musical instrument, nor a drum . . . it is a beautiful reinforced vibration . . .  it is the only tool with which you can produce this combination of space vibration.” – Yogi Bhajan The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation.  The gong changes feelings that are blocked by cutting the thoughts that sustain and recreate the feelings.  To regenerate the parasympathetic system, nothing is more powerful than the gong.  All the student needs to do is let the entire body relax and let the sound of the gong penetrate the body and guide the mind. DISCLAIMER: The practice of yoga has benefited millions of people both physically and mentally. It is not intended to replace good, sound medical advice. The therapeutic benefits attributed come from centuries-old yogic tradition. Please consult a physician or mental health professional should the need for one be indicated.
