Are you “Kundalini-curious”? You’ve heard about Kundalini Yoga but have never actually made it to class? Are you interested in shaking things up a bit and moving beyond asana? Or maybe you’re looking for a little more spirituality and meditation in your practice?
Our new Kundalini Fundamentals series might be your answer! Join Brian Carr at Lighthouse Yoga Center as he leads a series of classes of Kundalini Yoga (as Taught by Yogi Bhajan) customized for beginners. Taught on Monday evenings, the practice will be a fairly gentle one infused with energizing kriyas (or sets of exercises), peaceful meditations and revitalizing relaxations. Brian’s classes feature clear explanations while creating an environment where experience is the teacher. No body flexibility is required–only flexibility of the mind!
Cost: $90 for the full 6-week series. No charge for members.

Join us during the Amrit Vela, the still hours before the sun rises, when our awareness is heightened and our meditation practice is deepened. We start at 5 am with a recitation of Japji, then continue with a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and finish with 62 minutes of chanting.
Free and open to all. Register online.
Full Moon Meditation
The gravitation pull of the full moon is said to heighten the meditation experience. The moon has an effect on the water content of the body, and through meditation we can harness that power and make it work for us.
Join us for a 31-minute Full Moon Meditation on Thursday July 26, immediately following the 7:15 pm Kundalini Yoga class. Can’t make it to class? The doors will open for the meditation at about 8:25 pm. (Please note that the doors will be locked once the meditation starts).
All levels, no meditation experience is required. Sign up here.
Family Kundalini Yoga
Join us for this special class that will give your kids an opportunity to experience the benefits of Kundalini Yoga alongside parents and caregivers, who practice with them. While the class will be taught as a “normal” Kundalini Yoga class, the Kriyas will allow for shorter holding times and modifications when needed, so that everyone can stay together, physically and mentally. We’ll incorporate some fun partner warm-ups along with other fun activities to keep the young ones engaged!
