About Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan
The yoga of awareness, Kundalini is the most powerful system of yoga. It uses movement, breath and focus to energize and balance the body’s systems. Regular Kundalini practice builds physical strength, mental clarity, emotional balance, and effectively relieves stress. It strengthens the glands and nervous system, and gives you access to stored energy, so you can express your creativity. Kundalini is recommended for students at all levels. Vedya often plays her gong during Kundalini classes.
Kundalini yoga has been practiced in India for thousands of years. In 1969 Yogi Bhajan, the master teacher of Kundalini Yoga, introduced it in the US. Now it is taught and practiced all over the world. The best way to learn about Kundalini Yoga is to give it a try, especially if you like to feel happy, healthy, and clear.
About Hatha Yoga
Beginner friendly, Vedya will guide you through time tested yoga postures that bring balance to your mind, body, and reconnect you with your spirit. Students receive practical experiences in the eight limbs of yoga with an emphasis on breath and body awareness. Regular yoga practice can improve fitness, provide relief from stress, build strength, flexibility, and revitalize your immune system. Yoga helps you achieve emotional balance, and encourages you to “be there” every day of your life.
About Restorative Yoga
Even though some of us may get enough sleep, think about how much time you actually rest during the day. Restorative yoga reminds us how to deeply relax and rest and can help us recover from stress through its healing and rejuvenating effects on the mind, body and consciousness. In restorative yoga classes the body is supported in each pose with blankets and bolsters. Poses are held for longer periods of time so you can relax and release deeply held tension. These classes can make you feel like you’ve been on a “vacation.” They are highly recommended for those who experience stress, jetlag, and those of us who don’t often take time to rest during the busy workweek. Is that you? This is a great class to start with if you are new to yoga. Vedya plays crystal and Tibetan singing bowls during her Restorative classes.
About iRest® Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra, the "sleep of the yogi," is a healing experience that can lead to physical, spiritual and psychological transformation. During this class students explore the different koshas, or sheaths of consciousness, starting with the physical body and then moving into deeper explorations of feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs. Yoga Nidra helps desensitize negative body sensations and beliefs, opening the participant to experience joy and wellbeing. The practice begins with a short warm-up and then students rest in Savasana (corpse pose), or sit in a chair during the Yoga Nidra meditative journey. Yoga Nidra can lead to profound relaxation, release from chronic stress, resolution for many of life’s conflicts, and create harmony in daily life. This practice is suitable for all ages and physical conditions. The only requirement is that students listen and feel. Vedya often uses her gong and singing bowls to deepen the "sleep of the Yogi."
About Naad Yoga
Naad Yoga is the yoga of sound. It is one of the oldest forms of yoga. In this practice Vedya uses sound vibrations to shift energy and facilitate deep relaxation, meditation and help us access healing energies. Symphonic gongs, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls and other instruments are integrated into this unique class. Vedya offers private Naad yoga sessions as well as group classes and workshops.
About Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga incorporates longer held floor postures that nourish and stretch the joints and connective tissue. This deeply relaxing practice stimulates the flow of prana through the body and helps bring ease and increased range of movement into your body, mind and life. This gentle practice can leave you relaxed and feeling more "juicy" and rejuvenated. Yin yoga is accessible to students of any tradition and is great for beginners as well as experienced students of all ages and abilities. Vedya often plays her crystal and Tibetan singing bowls during savasana, the deep relaxation at the end of the practice.
