KUNDALINI YOGA WORKSHOPS
Known as “The Ancient Yoga of Awareness”, the techniques of Kundalini yoga were once a heavily guarded secret until Yogi Bhajan introduced them to the West in 1968. The technology of Kundalini Yoga uses unique combinations of breath, meditation, kryia (postures) and sacred sound. The emphasis of each class will differ but the goal remains the same: To empower you with an awareness beyond the ordinary, uniting you with the Universal Life Force and bringing about greater vitality, personal excellence and a new concept of who you are. Kundalini Yoga can be done by anyone, regardless of age, flexibility or level of fitness.

GENTLE YOGA
Adhering to the traditional asanas (postures) that are the foundation of all yoga, the Gentle Yoga class at Peace Love Yoga Palm Springs is structured to be accessible to all levels. Class begins with a centering meditation and seated asanas to awaken the body before moving to standing asanas. Class moves at a moderate pace, allowing you time to fully experience a posture before moving on to the next. Your standing sequence leads you back to the floor for reclining asanas and savasana.

BEGINNING YOGA
Using the same principals and structure, this class is a slower-paced version of our Gentle Yoga class. Your Beginning Yoga class starts with a seated meditation and includes both standing and seated postures. Props (blanket, strap, bolster, foam block) are used liberally to maximize comfort for beginners and for those with limited flexibility. Your Beginning Yoga class ends in a reclining posture before releasing into savasana.

class_desc_enerflow

ENERGETIC FLOW
This multi-level practice begins with a centering warm-up for arms, shoulders, upper body and spine before moving into a lively flow that includes strength, flexibility and balance postures. Each movement is coordinated with a breath; as you inhale, you raise your arms to the sky; as you exhale, you fold forward and so on. As your breath carries you from one posture to the next, it stimulates blood flow into the muscles and joints, revitalizing your whole body. Practice ends with supine postures that bring ease to the body, preparing it for savasana.

RESTORATIVE
This calming and deeply soothing style of yoga can be enjoyed by anyone. Using props (blanket, strap, bolster, foam block, wall, chair), you’ll be guided through an easy sequence of supported postures. The props provide additional support for the body, allowing you to relax completely into the posture. The therapeutic effects of this practice extend to the nervous system, facilitating a state of deep relaxation. Restorative yoga is beneficial to everyone and is very effective in managing anxiety, stress and menopausal symptoms.

MALA MEDITATION & CHANT
If you are experienced in meditation or new to this practice, Peace Love Yoga Palm Springs invites you to try our serene Meditation & Chant class! Adding daily meditation can help you experience new and deeper levels of your yoga practice while teaching you to manage the stress arising from the complexities of modern life. Using sound (AUM) and a mala (a string of prayer beads), you’ll learn to use your breath to quiet your mind. You’ll be seated throughout this class, supported with available props (blanket, block, bolster) for comfort if needed. Class includes breath, sound and energy work with explanations of chakras (energy centers in the body) and how to tune in to the unique properties of each. Peaceful and calming to the nervous system, meditation & chant can be practiced by everyone.
