Kundalini Yoga and Meditation

Chakra Series

8-Week Series


with Angela Trovato

as taught by Yogi Bhajan


Wednesdays

July 12 - September 6

No Class August 9

7:15-8:45 pm

$120 series registration, $20 drop in per session


Do you know you have 8 chakras? What are these 8 mysteries and how can they help me?

Everything in creation is made up of electromagnetic energy vibrating at different frequencies that correspond to sound, light and color.  The existence of electromagnetic fields around every object in the work—known as an Aura—is a scientifically proven fact.  In this series, we will utilize Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to explore the life force energy that flows through the body pathways—the Chakras—in order to maintain health and wellness: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

 Each week we will focus on one energy center, and explore its characteristics.  The particular chakra where the majority of your energy is focused influences your basic behavior and attitudes. Together, we will use breath, posture, and meditation to balance and open each Chakra sequentially and understand its influence in our lives.

No experience necessary, all levels welcome!  Wear comfortable loose clothing, choosing natural, light colored fibers if available. 

 Angela Trovato (Pavan Avtar Kaur) is a KRI certified teacher of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.

Yin and Restorative Yoga


with Bridget Rawls Peterson


Sunday, July 16

5:30-7:00 pm

$20 drop in or use your class card


Quiet the mind and body while connecting deeper into the breath with this Restorative Yoga practice.


Yin Yoga targets the connective tissue of the body, moving out of the muscular effort. Postures are low to the ground, opening the body by holding for several minutes at a time. 


 A Restorative Yoga practice is the body and mind’s way of resetting. The physical body is placed in positions to allow for a deeper connection to mind and breath, using props and support. This allows the body to rest and breathe deeper and for the mind to find some quiet and peace.


This practice is suitable for all levels of practitioners and helps to connect deeper to the body, mind and breath.
