“The mind has a collection of dramas.  The moment you live a complicated life or make it complicated, you are causing pain, trouble, misery.  Comply with the simple law:  Simple I am, and life is life, simple.”  Yogi Bhajan
In this deeply meditative class, you will experience a ReBirthing kriya, as originally taught by Yogi Bhajan, that releases deep-seated, subconscious patterns.  The kriya is designed to clean and open the lungs, change the circulation of the blood and give it the life force (prana) necessary to enter a deep, healing meditation for clarity and clearing.
Naomi Charanpal will be accompanied by her husband, Ghansham Singh, and together they will share a complete live music and gong bath offering that is the perfect way to start your weekend.

Hridaya Flow

Movement, Mudras and Mantras

INSTRUCTOR: Aimee Joy Nitzbergaimee twisting

DATE: Monday, July 11th

TIME: 7:30 – 9:00pm

COST: $25

This class uses a gentle flow to unwind and loosen the body and mind, and incorporates both mudras (specifically: hand gestures) and mantras (repetition of words or sounds) to deepen our concentration and intention of connecting to the heart center.  Hridaya is Sanskrit for the spiritual heart center.  “When we steady our breath we feel the steadying of our thoughts.  Then the thoughts melt away at a point.  Watching this point, where thoughts vanish will also help us to merge ourselves in the Hridaya”.
Slow, deep yin postures will also be included to help us steady the body and breath and melt deeper into the practice, deeper into our consciousness.  A long savasana, will leave you feeling nourished, calmed and lighter as you float on home.
