All Awareness Center classes include a comprehensive series
of exercises to stretch and strengthen the major muscle groups of the
body and increase the flexibility of the spine. Postures are merged with
powerful breathing techniques that energize and/or promote deep relaxation.
Each class includes tuning-in with a mantra, a warm-up, and a kriya (a
series of excercises) including asana (posture), pranayama (breathing
technique), mudras (hand positions), mantra (positive affirmations), and
meditation (quieting the mind). All classes end with a deep relaxation.
Our classes are for all ages, levels, and abilities, so even a beginner
can start with any class.
Open to all levels, this class leads you in a more gentle practice. Exercises
are adapted or shortened and there are more rests in between, making the
practice more accessible to students with physical limitations, chronic
illnesses, or those who are looking for a class with a slower pace.

practitioners alike allowing you the time and space to decompress and

mind amidst the challenges life presents.
Hatha Yoga, practiced for health and vitality, is a way of exercising,
stretching and freeing the body to obtain flexibility, strength, concentration,
peacefulness and much more.
Class begins with a moving meditation, called hatha flow, where one develops
a deep concentration and awareness of the body. Pausing to breathe
into any tight spots you will begin to feel the dynamics of the posture,
as strength combines with gentle stretching and freedom of expression.
This is a fluid and powerful class interweaving breath rhythm, energy
movements and playfulness. All levels are welcome.

Kundalini Yoga - Active Meditation
Inspired by the breathing exercises, mantras and meditations of Kundalini Yoga,
we have created a class that focuses on these specific practices. Within Kundalini Yoga there are many
meditations that require movement, an active breath like Breath of Fire, chanting and longer time lengths.
Through this practice, we will explore, experiment and experience the variety of meditations Yogi Bhajan
gave us at a deeper level. The class will open with short warm-ups and conclude with a deep relaxation.
Bring an open heart and mind and your desire to shift into the elevated energy of the Aquarian Age!
