Student Comments "This instructor was great! I have a strong interest in learning all types of Yoga and this was among my favorites. As a theatre performance major, I benefited more than I could imagine from this class. The breathing exercises were amazing for me, and I will be able to use those techniques in my own craft. I have suggested this course to many of my friends. ..."
Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. . . As Taught by Yogi Bhajan

Classes generally consist of "Tuning In" with a mantra to join the finite self with the Infinite and connect with the Golden Chain, then warm-ups, and a Kriya (a complete series of exercises organized in a particular way for a specific effect), then a meditation and/or deep relaxation, sometimes accompanied by the gong.

A One-day workshop (9AM - 5 PM) on Saturday February 22, 2014 for Yoga teachers, First Responders and Mental Health Workers at the NW Arkansas Center for Spiritual Living, Fayetteville, Arkansas. This workshop is designed to assist teachers and counsellors to develop effective methods of supporting their students and clients who are experiencing the effects of trauma.
Trauma may overwhelm our ability to cope and live in the present. We have noted that more and more people are coming into our classes who are suffering from depression, fatigue, and other symptoms of our stressful society and lifestyles. Indeed, surveys are showing an alarming prevalence of trauma in the US and around the world.
Current research is showing how yoga and meditation may reduce symptoms, particularly in disorders that have a strong psychosomatic, psychological or stress-related component. Yogi Bhajan brought us a powerful set of teachings that we can apply to aid most of the people who come to us for relief.
