Yoga is a series of techniques that work to stretch the body, relax the mind, and uplift the spirit. It’s a practice that has existed for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, and is now taught in gyms, yoga studios, community centers, and schools all over the world.
There are many different types of yoga. Some are more physical and some lean more towards meditation. There’s no “right” or “wrong” type of yoga practice; it’s all about your flavor of preference!
One type of yoga that’s quickly gaining in popularly is called Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga is a practice that combines stretching, breathing, and meditation to create a sense of overall well-being and relaxation.
Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age, flexibility, body shape or size, or other factors. Modifications are offered for many poses. If you can’t sit on the floor, there are chairs available for you to use. With a regular Kundalini Yoga practice, you will build your strength quickly, but in the meantime, take breaks as needed during the exercises.
We invite you to join us at the Magnolia Art Center on January 24 to experience this 2-hour workshop and learn some practical tools to reduce stress and increase your vitality, so you can find joy in life. This is an all-levels, all-ages practice, and we encourage you to approach it with an open mind and open heart.
What to Bring:
If you have a yoga mat, please bring it. If not, a blanket or any other type of floor covering will work.
It’s nice to have an extra blanket to cover yourself in during relaxation and a cushion to sit on during meditation.
Bring a bottle of water so you stay hydrated. It’s best not to eat a heavy meal for at least 2-3 hours before class.
