Kundalini Yoga

Curious about Kundalini Yoga?  Join Dharma as she teaches the art, science and technology behind Kundalini Yoga.  Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is more concentrated than most other types of hatha-based yoga practices.  Each practice includes asana (postures), mantras (sound vibration), breathwork and meditation.  Even though known as one of the most powerful and inclusive types of yoga practices, the tantric practice of Kundalini Yoga does not rely on difficult postures, so it is accessible to students of all levels.  You will leave her Kundalini sessions feeling 3HO – Happy, Healthy & Holy!  The time is right.  The time is NOW.
