Stay Healthy with Kundalini Yoga In this ongoing class, we will use numerology, astrology and the 5 Elements of Oriental and Ayurvedic Medicines to increase your understanding of the stresses of the time. Join us as we focus our kriyas (exercise), pranayama (breath), mantra (healing sounds) and meditations to heal us in the days, months and seasons of 2018. Monday nights, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
During the month of February, our kriyas (exercise sets) will focus on circulation and disease resistance. Our meditations will help develop our negative mind to see what can go wrong, so we can avoid being surprised. If we are able to consider the downside of a situation, we can actually see more of the upside and use our neutral mind to make our choices. This is the gift of meditation.
February can be a challenging month for maintaining health. The outside cold may keep us inside without enough exercise, and the dampness of winter rains may increase the tendency to "catch" a cold. Helpful tips are to drink warm teas, eat less or no meat and dairy, eat beans and rice, warm soups with lots of the Trinity roots onions, garlic and ginger. Spice your food with black pepper, cumin, coriander, fennel, cardamom and turmeric. Keep agni (digestive fire) high with exercise and breath of fire (kapalabhati, quick diaphragmatic breathing). Dr. Lad, an Ayurvedic practitioner in New Mexico, said that one can lose one pound of body weight with 1000 breaths per day (10 min.) of breath of fire. This breath improves thyroid function and regulates weight. He also said that after Breath of Fire is complete Vata (anxiety and mental hyperactivity) calms. This breath can clear HPV, PCOS, fibroid tumors, normalize blood sugar, reduces cholesterol & triglycerides. Do not do breath of fire during menses, pregnancy or lactating or in the case of a recent heart attack, hernia or surgery.
We will not have class on Monday, Feb. 26.

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