Kundalini Yoga - Single Session

Kundalini yoga focuses on awakening energy and unlocking our inner potential through breathing techniques, movements, stretching, meditation and mantra. This ancient and sacred practice is the oldest form of yoga and is an effective way to recharge and heal the body.

The class, taught by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D., Master of Kundalini yoga, starts and ends with beautiful and ancient chants which open and calm the heart. A carefully planned sequence of postures, movements and breathing exercises, called a kriya, follows. The techniques stimulate the nervous and immune systems, while improving strength and flexibility. Participants may find a peace of mind and experience benefits including relief from back pain, stress, addiction, depression, insomnia and weight control.

Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert

Join us for a Tibetan singing bowls experience with Denver yoga instructor and sound healer Chris Anne Coviello of the Healing Space Wellness Center in Denver. Chris Anne has been performing Tibetan bowls concerts and teaching weekly kundalini yoga classes at Denver Botanic Gardens since 2009. The concert will begin with a symphonic gong and a Venus gong that are played gently with the intention to relax the nervous system.

The singing bowls are tuned to musical notes that correspond to the different chakras of the body and are played to balance energy in the body. Because we are made up of mostly water, the vibrational effect will be a full body cellular massage.

Tibetan singing bowls have been used for thousands of years as instruments of healing. So come relax, close your eyes and drift into an altered state which facilitates the body to heal. Wear comfy clothes and bring a yoga mat or blanket so that you may lie down and let the bells carry away with them all that no longer serves you. As the chakras re-align, breathe in peace and enter a profound state of physical, mental and emotional well-being. Feel as if you are 10 pounds lighter as stress, anxiety and fear melt from your system.
