Join Demetria Jackson in a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of Kundalini Yoga. If you are new to the studio and are craving teachings geared towards beginners, this is the workshop for you. We’ll give background and share the history of Kundalini Yoga, and you’ll learn the purpose of each element of class. We’ll share tips for best practice: how to properly do body locks (bandhas), basic breathing, get the most out of mantra, and ways to deepen concentration and relaxation. There can be a lot going on in a Kundalini Yoga practice, so the more knowledge you have, the quicker you’ll be able to focus and self-initiate when you’re in class.
Pre-registration is required as we need to print materials in advance. If you’re planning on coming, make sure to pre-register below.
Date & Time
Sunday January 22nd
1:30 – 4:30 pm
