Class Descriptions


No class Friday, September 15

Sat Nam,

We are just beginning to experience a taste of Fall after a very warm and wet summer. As the leaves begin to fall, drier weather becomes more the norm.

We may experience an aggravation of what the science of Ayurveda calls Vata. Vata is the element of air and ether and is the mental aspect of our self. It gives us mobility of mind and body. Any change in season upsets Vata and the coming cool weather and darkness will continue to aggravate Vata. 

If you begin to feel fearful, overwhelmed, anxious, have insomnia or dry skin, gas, are constipated, or feel cold, it will be helpful to balance Vata. We often find ourselves establishing new routines as the new school year starts. This is essential to calming the mind and creating order. Daily pranayam (breathing exercises), yoga, and meditation is a wonderful way to start our day. In terms of diet, eating warm, moist, oily foods is also helpful.

We can also look at the change of season from the Chinese 5 elements. The earth element rules the stomach and spleen. We are in a transition from summer to fall and it is helpful to change our diets to accommodate the change. During the summer, nature provides juicy, watery foods to cool the heat. During fall, nature provides fruits such as apples, pears, figs, grapes, pomegranates, and persimmons to cleanse and nurture our digestive tracts.

Foods harvested this time of year give us sustenance throughout the winter, especially grains, legumes, fall vegetables, seaweeds, nuts, and seeds. Our diets can start to be warmer and heavier, preparing us for the colder, darker months. During the fall, the time of the earth element, we want to keep our intestines and lungs strong. Healthy intestines will encourage healthy respiratory tracts and reduce seasonal colds and flus.

Our yoga for the month of September will emphasize the "apana", or eliminating element. Stronger elimination or apana, means stronger prana, which gives us more energy. As we analyze our patterns to create our new routines and order, we experience the Virgo part of ourselves, which is about separating what we need from what we don't and getting rid of it. In this 9th month of the year, we will emphasize the Subtle Body. This is the yogic body that allows us to experience Mastery in life instead of being confused by its Mysteries.

Class dates are September 8, 22, 29 and October 6. 
There is no class on September 15 as we will be out of town.

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 glandular system, and creating a heightened level of awareness.
