  • Yoga to Embrace Possibility

    possibility

    Embracing possibility is all about believing in possibility.

    So many people want to manifest this and that - a dream job, handstand, true love, etc.

    But instead of believing in that desire or intention wholeheartedly they come up with excuses or negatives for why it won’t ever come to fruition.

    That’s not the way to possibility.

    The way to possibility is through an open + receptive heart and mind emptied of doubt, fear, negatives, and self-defeating no-I-can’t stories.

    Because yes, you can.

    Are you ready?

    Are you ready to enter possibility?

    Here’s your way.

    Join Rolf Gates for a transformative online yoga practice: Coming into the Felt Experience.

    This online yoga class intends to open your heart and mind to new possibilities. "Don't push forward, but don't stand still...rather come into the felt experience," says Gates. He will guide you to let go of the idea of something (maybe a no-I-can’t story) and instead, come into the felt experience of body and breath! Warm up with Sun Salutations and variations and practice twists and standing balances, including half moon, eagle, and tree poses. End this online yoga video with core work, backbends, and reclining work with a strap. (92 mins.)

    You got what it takes to move mountains if you can just move out all of the false stories spinning around in your head!

    Breathe in possibility.

  • 6 Reasons to Practice Kundalini Yoga

    kundalini yoga kriyas

    First…

    What is Kundalini Yoga?

    This style of yoga, referred to as "the yoga of awareness," is all about unlocking the snake-like Kundalini (“coiled”) energy located at the base of the spine. It is a highly spiritual practice with heavy focus on breath and movement all intended to open up the heart, strengthen the mind + body, and create greater health + happiness.

    What are the benefits of Kundalini Yoga? Why should you all give it a go?

    1. Spinal Flexibility. So many of the Kundalini Yoga poses + kriyas work the agility of the spine (sufi grind, spinal flexes, spinal twists, cat-cow, bow, camel, cobra, and wheel). In yoga, it’s all about spinal health. In fact, yogis judge youthfulness based on the healthiness of the spine. A healthier spine means a more youthful you!
    2. Greater Lung Capacity. Like other styles of yoga, Kundalini is all about the breath. Breathing techniques such as Breath of Fire and alternate nostril breathing serve to expand lung capacity. Learning to deeply attune to your breath is a powerful tool - one that calms unsettling emotional states and resolves stress.
    3. Core Power. Powerful pranayama techniques (i.e. Breath of Fire) coupled with abdominal heavy postures + exercises all work to create a more sculpted and strong center. Give those tired crunches a rest. Enter Kundalini Yoga.
    4. Memory + Mood Enhancement. Certain Kundalini exercises are believed to enhance memory and are even recommended for Alzheimer’s patients. Many exercises have also proven to inspire positive mood shifts in practitioners.
    5. Energy Booster. Feelin’ low? Run down? Sad? Depressed? Kundalini can be a powerful fix by heightening your energy and also, your overall experience of life. Touch can feel more powerful. The visual world, more colorful. Your taste buds, more alive. Smells, more potent.
    6. Balance. With its focus on meditation, Kundalini Yoga offers many opportunities to enter a blissed out, harmonious state. With regular practice, these blissful vibes will sneak into all areas of your life! Kundalini has the potential to unleash and unlock barriers within yourself - barriers that are holding you back from living your life at its fullest.

    Realize all of these kundalini yoga benefits and more, in Sukhdev's Jackson online yoga class: Awakening Our Intuition.

    This online yoga experience targets the pituitary gland, which is your center of intuition. When the pituitary gland secretes, the nectar is said to raise intuition and open the door to the Infinite. This meditation (Smiling Buddha Kriya) is said to have been practiced by both Jesus and the Buddha, and it is a very ancient mudra of peace. Resonate the four primal sounds Sa Ta Na Ma - meaning Infinity, Life, Death, and Rebirth - to connect with the whole cycle of life. The meditation presented in this online yoga video is also good for connecting with the positive mind and taking care of depression. (88 mins.)
