Yoga is a science of life, developed over thousands of years. It promotes health and happiness by working on the mind, body and spirit. Yoga originated in Africa - India, and has spread all around the world. It is not a religion. Yoga deals with universal truths and is therefore compatible with all faiths and none.
The Sanskrit word “yoga” means “union”. The ancient yogis practiced meditation to join their inner spirit with the spirit of the universe to become enlightened. Over the years, several distinct paths of yoga emerged, although they all ultimately lead to the same destination.
Kundalini Yoga incorporates breathing, stretching, meditation, relaxation, mantra and music. Sets of postures are based around a theme or focus and students work at their own pace throughout.
Kundalini Yoga helps you develop a relationship with your body (energy and feelings), your mind (patterns, games, emotions and issues) and spirit (heart, inner child and soul).
It is about you knowing, experiencing, trusting, understanding, supporting and taking care of you.
It is important to realize that yoga is noncompetitive. Everyone works at their own level, pace and without strain. In yoga, we work smoothly with the breath and with concentration and awareness. General safety advice for postures will be given, but you must take responsibility for our own safety by listening to your body, respecting it and working within your limits.
Wear comfortable clothing and restrain from eating two hours before class, bring water.
Yoga promotes health, happiness and well-being, making you more flexible and relaxed.
