Location: Up Yoga and Wellness, 8083 Georgia Avenue (Silver Spring). To register, purchase the “Lower Back” class card here.

*Using the feet and the legs to activate core stability muscle*   *Aligning and strengthening the core stability muscles to support the lower back*   *Stretching muscles to decompress the lumbar spine

This class is appropriate for students of all levels. Students with injuries are welcome and modifications will be given.

Open to all levels. No prior yoga experience is required.

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.

Full Moon Meditation

Stay tuned…..

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.

All levels, no meditation experience is required. Sign up here.

Donations accepted.
