Kundalini Inspired Yoga and Meditation

Awaken your Kundalini energy and let your inner light shine!


Kundalini is a powerful life force energy that is stored at the base of your spine. When this energy is awakened through yoga and meditation practices, profound healing can take place. Kundalini practices unblock energy that is stuck, enhance inner awareness, and leave you feeling alive, radiant and attuned to your true essence. 

In this workshop, you will learn about the benefits of Kundalini practices. You will be guided though a gentle yoga sequence that incorporates Kundalini breathing, movements and mantras to evoke the powerful energy of consciousness. We will then practice an active meditation that incorporates shaking, dancing, sitting and lying down.


Join us for these mystical practices and enliven your body, mind and spirit!
