Yoga with Doreen BlackKundalini Yoga is the Yoga of Awareness, and
Krias – a set of postures done in a specific sequence, produce specific effects
for body and mind wellness (spiritual elevation, navel adjustment, better
sleep). Decrease stress, increase relaxation with vigorous movements rather
than traditional postures. Doreen presents this class in a way that allows
anyone to discover their capabilities and capacity to expand on success. Each
class will have a “theme” addressing different areas of mind and body -
examples: brain function, glandular secretions, lymphatic system, short-simple
meditation – making it easy for students to attend just one, or all classes.
Everyone is welcome to participate.
