Events at the Yoga Gallery of Healing Arts in Winston Salem
Kundalini Yoga Series
with Andrea Amanpreet Kaur
Tuesdays, November 11 – December 30, 2014
6 - 7:30 pm
Chakras are energetic organizing centers located along the spine that govern our life, behavior, moods and consciousness. Their functions are to receive, process, assimilate, and transmit life energies. Together they form a network that expresses and coordinates our complex mind/body/emotion/spirit system.
The whole spine is a pole of energy vortices. We work with each Chakra separately to identify and experience their unique attributes und contributions to our human experience. However, Kundalini Yoga works on the Chakras simultaneously and progressively. As we open and balance one Chakra, we impact the others. As we activate and open channels in our spine, strengthen the nervous system, and stimulate our glandular system, all our Chakras serve us.
Whether you chose to travel through one Chakra, or several out of context, or embark on the voyage of ascending all of them, with this yoga series you will activate your Kundalini -your awareness, and raise the frequency of your energy. This in turn will have you experience life more fully and expel negative mental and emotional conditioning.

Gallery Hop Kirtan. Come Chant With Us!
Kirtan is a form of Bhakti yoga that uses call and response chants, usually in Sanskrit or English. Kirtan opens the heart and throat chakras, inviting expression and raising consciousness through sound vibration. Sara creates a relaxed atmosphere with harmonium and guitar accompaniments, inviting (but not requiring) vocal participation from the audience, while weaving yoga philosophy and stories throughout the experience.

Explore from the inside...
YIN is a slow, deliberate practice that complements the Yang of Vinyasa/Flow style yoga and our fast paced daily lives. It improves flexibility by allowing the body to move deeper into floor-based asanas; each pose is held for 3 minutes or longer.
Yin Yoga focuses internally. By practicing Yin, you will expand inner awareness, release deeply-held tension and may feel emotional release. Yin brings balance and calmness to the body, mind and spirit. It is meditative, breath-focused and passive in nature. Yin encourages the deeper connective tissues to gently relax and allows increased circulation in the joints.
Experience this amazing practice with Marcia McCall, RYT200 and find your hidden inner gifts
