What class should I take?
Why take an Illumina Flow class?
Illumina Flow is a vinyasa style class but contains within it the energetic potency of Kundalini yoga. Along with asana; mantra, moving metaphor, music, and shamanic principles create a merging of the physical realm with the deeper layers of consciousness. You will be guided to embody an archetypal theme and allow it to transcend through the total self, mental, emotional, and physical realms.
Practicing this form merges the need for physical awareness as well as the ability to use the physical form to go deeper. Consciously liberate, inspire, empower, and understand your humanness, what connects us all, and how to play with the dance of life.
Why take an alignment-based class?
Our bodies work so hard for us, and no body is perfect. Asana practice, (yoga poses) help to support us physically in our life. Just like you need to take your car to a mechanic for a tune up, asana helps you to calibrate yourself to an optimal state of being.
You are able to address dynamically and therapeutically how your body can move in more aligned ways to keep you strong, active, and physically aware of how you hold yourself. A tool to see your body the way your are, and how you can deal with the reality of what happens to the meat suit you get to wear every day. You have to move differently to think and act differently.
Why take a Kundalini Yoga class?
The physical practice of yoga was created to prepare the body for meditation. Kundalini Yoga gives you expedited experiences of cathartic mental and emotional release to stand in the radiant center of your own truth through physical dexterity, and active meditations using transformative breath practices.
It specifically is designed to move your energy to strengthen your nervous system, balance the glandular system, and remove subconscious blocks. Your mind becomes optimized to act creatively, experiencing your own strength and amplified consciousness.
Illumina Flow is a vinyasa style class with a strong unified intention that is carried throughout the class on all layers including the asana. An Illumina class will feel like a journey with the purpose of illuminating some facet of what it means to be human & offering specific tools for reflection and transformation. Expect mantra, moving metaphor, music, Kundalini elements and shamanic principles to be present in some form. This class is recommended for those with a strong foundational practice who love to explore.
Liquid Light is a soulful and rhythmically flowing moving meditation. It begins with an invocation to prepare the body, mind and spirit for the sacred intention of the class and is followed by an extended Namaskar/Ritual Prostration to electrify the embodiment of that intention. Concluding with a brief seated practice, savasana and visualization or meditation, Liquid Light will leave you luminous with conscious energy.
Liquid Light + Nidra concludes with the added quantum rest of Yoga Nidra (guided Yogic Sleep). A guided 30 minute Yoga Nidra to deepen intention and bring healing into every layer of the self, this class will leave you deeply relaxed and luminous with conscious energy and insight.
An Illumina based align class will create conscious awareness to your physical body’s alignment and will allow for the whole self to come into focus and shine. Intentional and intelligent principles of optimal alignment will be taught as well as other powerful tools for self reflection & direction of energy. Class may include meditation and/or pranayama techniques, bringing you into the center of yourself through the portal of the body.
Kundalini is a highly refined technology of using your body and breath to strengthen your nervous system, glandular system, and clean out your subconscious mind. You will find balance, strength, and a deeper level of focus and relaxation. It is the synthysis of all forms of yoga., incorporating movement, breathwork, sound/ mantra, meditation, and deep relaxation are all present in a class.
Restorative Yoga is a loving and consciously guided journey into your most relaxed and open state. This class will dissolve tensions in the body, calm the nervous system, and restore you to your innate balance.
