Friday, September 22nd
8:00pm - 9:30pm
$15 REGISTER HERE
Kundalini Yoga, called by practitioners "the yoga of awareness", aims to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on the compassion and consciousness needed to serve and heal others.
In her workshop, Gosia Gianpreet Kaur will guide you to enrich your yoga practice and life with abundance and prosperity. With gong meditation, chanting, breathing exercises, singing, meditation, and physical sequences called kriyas, you will focus on rejuvenating your natural light.
As yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga said: “There is a way to prosperity. If the mind is clear, if the subconscious is not blocked, if you unconsciously live a conscious life, you can never be poor. Where there is a magnet, things will fly to it. The mastermind, the Great Mind, knows your needs. You don’t have to yell and scream, “Help, God!” God is inside. He manufactured you. He sent you here. He gave you features and facets. He gave you all the environments you need. You simply do not accept it.”
No prior yoga or meditation experience is necessary. All levels are welcome as options and variations will be given to beginners and advanced practitioners.
