Our 4 weeks of "August" classes are July 29, August 5, 12, and 26. (The 4 weeks of July classes were July 1,8,15 and 22). We will be on vacation during the third week of August so there won't be a class on August 19.

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 your energy 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 the 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 salts will provide the balance.
See you soon!
Our August classes are in person and on Zoom. If you register for the whole month, you will also get a recording of the class that you can watch anytime. For registration information, please go to our website:

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.
