Kundalini Yoga consists of active and passive asana-based kriyas (exercises), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditations which target the whole body system (nervous system, glands, mental faculties, chakras) to develop awareness, consciousness and spiritual strength. Kundalini Yoga is a yoga that uses the angles of the body through alignment to allow for maximum flow of energy from the base of the spine to the crown of the head (Also known as the chakra system). Each Kundalini class includes a warm-up, dynamic movement, relaxation and meditation. The physical practice and meditation of the class are to prepare the body for the flow of Kundalini energy.

We will meet outside the Metro Tuileries, just inside the gates of the gardens.

So be sure to arrive in plenty of time to get checked in and walk over with the group. For those arriving late, come find us there!
This class will be held on the tree grove on the RIGHT
(when you are looking at the Louvre).
