Come join friends for another beautiful afternoon in this community garden, ~*Celebrating*~ & experiencing this practice, & connecting with wonderful people :) This month we’ll share, explore & celebrate positive practices/traditions/ communities parallel & synergistic to the practice & community of Kundalini Yoga, --especially the Interactive & White Tantric aspects!*~
As a symbolic celebration of this coming together, we'll of course do some Interactive, as well as regular, Kundalini Yoga: We’ll do some in pairs, + facing into the circle: With another awesome, magical class with *~Sat Devbir Singh*~(Donations go to www.AceOfHeartsDogs.com ) while listening to his guided journey of words, music, & Tibetan Singing Bowls, --& sharing breath, chanting/singing, movements or stillness (often while looking into each other’s eyes while holding hands, or leaning against each other’s backs) – Interactive Kundalini Yoga facilitates a space of being comfortable & able to celebrate just *being* with another person, & *just being* with oneself –without needing words: And being able to be present to ones breath, & the needs of one’s body, *while* truly being present & connecting with another human being & enjoying it!. Celebrating each other, building energy & having extra to share with our community!
There are so seldom opportunities for us to connect as a community outside of classes, so we've set aside a more informal, relaxed space & open forum for people of all backgrounds to feel welcome to evolve new ideas for the community together, & people of all experience levels to share the practice; an especially welcoming space for beginners to try their 1st class! . ***There will be chairs for people who need them & people of all ages & fitness levels participating.***
BRING: Ideally *2* of the following: Yoga Mat, Blanket, beachtowel will do if that’s all u have…; Cushion if you need it; water; hat; sunscreen; snack if you need it; comfortable, flexible clothing

What is KUNDALINIi Yoga? How is it very different than other kinds of Yoga?:
Kundalini Yoga *simultaneously* combines chanting or singing with movement & postures, symbolism, dynamic breathing, & meditation focused on positive intentions/ energy/ actions, --to experience mind, body, spirit epiphany, connect with divine energy, & manifest peace for ourselves & the world. Like many other Yogas it centers the mind, helps rid back pain & stress, improves strength, flexibility & provides tools to reach & maintain optimal fitness while continuously expanding one’s ultimate fitness possibilities. Kundalini Yoga is especially known for increasing life energy & zest; therapeutic benefits for nervous system, improving immune system, ridding people from addiction, depression & insomnia; & releasing the spirit to flow freely. *Interactive* Kundalini Yoga is sometimes offered as part of workshops, but rarely ever offered in regular classes; we always do some: Enjoy an expansive, deeper, transcendent experience connecting with other human beings!
