Yoga - Gentle Kundalini Yoga 5.1.18
with Melina Yáñez
Come and experience Kundalini Yoga based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. No experience is necessary to explore the practice of this unique form of yoga. All sessions include warm ups, pranayam (breathwork), asanas (postures), savasana (deep relaxation), and meditation. Known as “the yoga of awareness”, Kundalini Yoga is a welcoming, “come-as-you-are”, enlivening experience. Among the many benefits that Kundalini Yoga can bring to your life are increased flexibility of the spine, opening the emotional heart, and strengthening of the body as a whole. Please wear loose clothing and avoid eating or having strong caffeine at least two hours prior to the class. Also, please bring a yoga mat or a towel and a water bottle. If you are unable to sit on the floor, chairs will be provided. Beginners to yoga are welcome! Registration $45. 6 weeks 6:15-8:00 p.m. Begins Tues 5/1 CHRHS Rm 312 Melina T. Yáñez took her first Kundalini Yoga class a decade ago and immediately fell in love with this ancient practice. A native San Franciscan, she moved to Maine after 25 years in New York City. She completed her certification as a Kundalini Yoga instructor at Golden Bridge in Manhattan and currently attends workshops at Kundalini Yoga East whenever she visits the Big Apple. In addition to Kundalini Yoga and meditation, her passions include classic black and white films, vintage china, studying medicinal plants, and Frank Sinatra!
