Kundalini Yoga is a healing art that uses movement, breath-work, mantra, meditation and mudras to direct energy flow. This builds physical vitality, clears blocks and releases trauma from our energy body and allows us to cultivate self-knowing at a deep level.
This workshop will include a brief history of Kundalini Yoga, how it works and what energy channels it affects and how Kundalini differs from other forms of yoga. We will explore mantra, a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation and hone pronunciation in order to get the most benefit from its energy. The practice will include a Kriya, set of physical exercises, and end in meditation that will lead into a meaningful gong bath savasana.
Stephanie brings her lifelong spiritual passion to her yoga classes. Understanding and working with energy has always been a big part of her life. She is a lover of crystals and astrology and has always been fascinated by how our energies are affected. Stephanie earned her Reiki Master certification in 2009. When Stephanie discovered Kundalini Yoga, and how it uses the body’s energies for healing and ascension, it was a natural fit for her. After receiving her Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training certification, Stephanie then sought out Yin Yoga training to complement and increase her knowledge of energy meridians from Chinese Medicine. Stephanie believes laughter is one of the best ways to raise our energy and is a form of healing, thus she endeavors to make class fun while also being transformative. During savasana, the resting pose at the end of class, Stephanie plays her gong which allows the body to experience more in-depth healing.
