Evening Meditation and Gong with Saati
June 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 26, 2019
THURSDAYS 6:30pm – 7:45pm
“The greatest education a person has to learn is the science of self. The science of self and self-awareness is the highest knowledge a person can possess because then you can pull through all circumstances.” Yogi Bhajan
Join Saati to experience the YOU within you through the practice of Kundalini Yoga (the Yoga of Awareness) & Meditation. Thursday evenings are usually light on yoga and deep in meditation. This way, we cultivate a deep strength and neutral, meditative mind attuned to intuitive intelligence.
Each class theme is designed to the serve the need of the group. In Kundalini Yoga, we have thousands of kriyas to call upon in order to heal, balance, elevate, deliver whatever is needed at the moment.
For those who are new to Kundalini Yoga, we incorporate the following into classes:
- MANTRA – sound current/chanting
- PRANAYAM – breathing patterns
- MUDRA – hand positions
- DRISTI – eye gazes
- ASANA – body positions
- BANDAS – body locks
In every class, we begin with an invocation, an attunement to ourselves to a sacred space using the mantra: ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO.
We start with warm ups, practice a short Kriya and longer Meditation, then relax into shivasana/deep relaxation with the Gong.
All are welcome – although this is not a beginner’s class
Doors open at 6:15pm
No yoga mats, please
Please park consciously to preserve space for others
