Class Descriptions

AUGUST 2021
CLASSES

NO CLASS ON LABOR DAY, SEPTEMBER 6

Sat Nam!

August highlights the concept of energy or prana. Prana is the life-giving energy of the universe. The seat of pranic energy is in the chest area. We take a breath in and it fills us with life and oxygen. Apana is the eliminating force. We exhale and release used energy and carbon dioxide. The balance point of the prana and apana is the navel point.

Our exercises for the month will be about balancing and strengthening the navel point. You will not only gain more energy, but it will be balanced and centered. Our meditations will give us the opportunity to expand our pranic capacity through breathwork.

If you are born in August or on the 8th, 17th, or 26th of a month, you might crave energy like a fire consumes wood to burn brightly. This makes you more prone to craving sweets, salts, and stimulants. Eating natural sweets such as are present in the many seasonal fruits available at this time of year will give blood sugar a boost and natural sea and Himalayan salt will provide the balance.

We will be on vacation during the first week of August so there won't be class on August 2.

See you soon!


Love, peace, and blessings,

Mukta

I am considering doing a hybrid class (live and on Zoom) for anyone who would want to come to our house on Monday nights. Please let me know if you are ready to do that. I have also had requests for a daytime class. The only days that would be possible are Tuesdays or Fridays. Please let me know if you would be interested.

We will continue our Zoom classes due to the pandemic. The new price is $64 for 4 classes. If you can't take the class on Monday nights, you can pay for the class and I will send you a link within a few days. If you are not already taking classes, please let me know if you would like to take the classes, but need a discount due to the financial toll this year has taken. Here is the link to our website that has more information on how to register:

** Stay at Home Classes: We are offering our regular Monday night classes online **

Same time, via Zoom. You can watch via video feed or call in and listen.

Monday Nights, 7:00 - 8:30 pm EDT

Classes are $18 per class or $64 for a 4-week pass starting at the beginning of each month. If you join mid-month you can either pay $18/class until we start a new month or pay $16 per weekly class plus the next $64 fee for the next month. You can pay with Zelle ([email protected]) or you can write a check to "GRD" and send it to: GRD Clinic, 1845 Peeler Rd., Dunwoody, GA 30338. When you register for the 4-week class pass, we will send you a link after the class so that you can watch it again, or just watch it later if you can't make it Monday night.

We realize some of you are out of work and are having trouble with your finances right now. It is important to pay something because there is a cosmic law about the importance of the exchange of energy when teaching and taking classes. If you can pay the full amount, please do. If not, please make a contribution that you're comfortable with.

After you have paid, please register in advance for these online classes here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Monday nights from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. -- taught by Mukta

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a dynamic form of yoga that combines breath, movement, meditation, rhythmic sound, and deep relaxation. It is practical for the average person because it works to release tension and energize in a short period of time, regardless of the degree of flexibility or experience.

These classes are taught in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan who first brought Kundalini Yoga to the West 50 years ago, in 1969. This yoga is taught in specific sequences of exercises (Kriyas) that create optimum health by strengthening the immune system, balancing the glands, and creating a heightened level of awareness.
