Andrea St.Jules instructs the following:
  • Kundalini Yoga - 5 Elements Series
  • 6 weeks / $75+hst
    ($10 discount if participate in Intro Workshop)
    $15 Drop-In
     
    Everything that exists in the manifest Universe is a configuration of the Five Elements : Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. In the Yogic tradition they are called Tattvas, and they correspond to the first 5 Chakras (energy centers in the body). Purifying each of the Tattvas within us is an important part of awakening to higher levels of conscious awareness and healing. In this 6 week series we will use the technology of Kundalini Yoga to explore each of the Elements within us and around us. Kundalini Yoga is an ancient, holistic yogic system, which focuses on expanding sensory awareness and increasing intuition. It incorporates a dynamic blend of exercises, postures (asana), breath work (pranayama), chanting (mantra), hand gestures (mudra) and meditation to balance and align our physical, mental and energy bodies. Classes are suitable for all levels, although it’s recommended to take the Introduction to Kundalini Yoga workshop on Sept.12 if you are new to the practice. (*10 discount offered on the course if you take the Intro workshop*)

  • WARM YIN YOGA (deep stretch)
  • In a moderately heated room, this class offers a more meditative style that works on the connective tissues in the body. This style is great for improving flexibility, while maintaining joint mobility and bone health. The room is heated to 90 degrees.

  • 40 Day Meditation Journey – Kirtan Kriya
  • Kirtan Kriya is a powerful meditation that uses mantra, mudra and visualization to awaken your intuition, boost your brain power, and promote emotional balance and healing.

    It is considered the most important meditation in the Kundalini Yoga tradition, and has been studied extensively by the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation. Among the many benefits they have observed are: improved memory, reduced stress, improved brain chemistry, improved mood and sleep, reduced depression, and decreased risk of Alzheimer’s with a healthy anti-aging effect on the brain. And in addition to all that, it’s considered a meditation for new beginnings!

    Inviting you to join our 40 day community mediation journey beginning with the new moon on Sept.20. We will gather weekly to meditate as a group, and on all the days in between you will do the meditation at home on your own time. You can choose either the 31 minute, or 12 minute version of the meditation. Through our facebook group and email we will support one another throughout the journey. In the Kundalini Yoga tradition they say it takes 40 days to change a habit pattern. Are you ready to release the past and commit to a brand new beginning?

    To experience this meditation prior to committing to the 40 day journey, and to learn more about it, join us on Sept.12 for the Introduction to Kundalini Yoga workshop. Or contact Andrea at gracefulwarrior555@gmail.com
