    Level 2 Authentic Relationships

    “Relationship in life is a process of life, meant to enlarge your personality and gain your personality. Relationship is nothing but a totally extended experience of self.” Yogi Bhajan

    Our entire life experience unfolds within the matrix of our relationships and is the key to all our success. When we live in authentic relationships we embrace our true identity and our infinite nature. From this place we can consciously connect to the divine in others and create an authentic relationship that serves and elevates both our self and others.

    Integrate authentic relationships into your life and your teaching. Explore and understand how we form, sustain and honor relationships. Our success as Kundalini Yoga teachers and as conscious human beings depends on our capacity to be authentic and respond from our hearts; our primary objective is to examine our relationships and improve our effectiveness, authenticity and awareness within them.

    We will explore the following themes:

    • Explore what an authentic relationship is and what it’s not.

    • Acquire tools to assess our relationships, honour them and assist others in developing authentic, fulfilled relationships.
    • To inspire us to investigate, study and apply the wide range of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings about relationships, marriage, family, mastery of polarity, and communication between men and women and the art of spiritual life.

  • Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance

    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance

    Tuesday, December 5th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance

    The full moon is a special time, especially for those who are following a yogic path, because it is an optimum time for clearing and balancing our mind and our energy.

    The moon is deeply and intimately connected with our mind and our thoughts. Meditation can help to cleanse feelings of agitation, and can even provide us with a great opportunity to let go of the mental or emotional baggage that has been weighing us down. Meditating at the full moon also help us to unleash our creativity, whether we are focused on specific creative projects or we need new ways of thinking about the problems and issues we are facing. This practice can help us to release old, stuck, energy that no longer serves us.

    During the class, we will clear our mind and balance our body’s chakras (energy centers) through a variety of Kundalini Yoga practices including breath work (pranayam), meditation, visualization, setting intentions, and a restorative sound bath with the symphonic Gong.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.

    Workshop - Yoga for Weight Trainers & Gym Goers

    Wednesday, December 13th, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Workshop - Yoga for Weight Trainers & Gym Goers

    Yoga asana (or yoga pose) is the perfect complement to weight training; creating body awareness, suppleness in the tissues and flexibility so that the body is able to adapt to new training and recover more quickly.
     
    When the body is tight we have a higher chance of injury, additionally, tight muscles limit circulation, which increases recovery time. Overtight muscles also compress the joints, limiting movement. Strong athletic movements all originate from a stabilized neutral spine position - from this position we can react and adjust to just about any challenge coming our way.

    Drawing on these principles, in this workshop we will
    1. Discuss the muscles involved in our sport;
    2. Learn specific yoga asana to manage those muscles and joints; and
    3. Put it all together in a cross-training sequence and post-gym sequence.

    You will be given the cross-training sequence (a vinyasa/yin) and the post-gym sequence (yin-based) to take home with you.

    This workshop is open to all levels of gym goers, from the recreational to competitive; everyone is welcome. No yoga experience is necessary – this is the perfect guided workshop to add yoga to your training.

    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    Tuesday, December 19th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    "Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there."- Yogi Bhajan

    Meditating at the time of the New Moon intensifies our intentions and makes it an ideal time to focus on prosperity (personal and business) and abundance using the energy of the New Moon combined with Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations.

    Prosperity and abundance come in many forms.  When one’s internal attitude is out of alignment, it doesn’t matter what that person has or doesn’t have in the material world.  When we connect with an internal attitude of prosperity, we become like a magnet. The abundance of the universe flows to us.

    Our class includes breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya) for awareness, a prosperity meditation followed by a deep relaxation (savasana) in the celestial sounds and vibrations of two Gongs.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.
