Budding Rose - Awaken and TransformBetween April 26 and May 31 I’m teaching a series of Kundalini Yoga classes under the theme of Awaken and Transform. All classes will be held at Yoga West in Kitsilano (2662 W 4th Avenue, between Stephens and Trafalgar) on Thursdays from 12–1:30pm.

These classes are part of a 40-day yoga challenge that officially launches at Yoga West on April 23 at 7pm. According to yogic science, 40 days is the amount of time it takes to let go of an old habit and cultivate a new one. You’re very welcome to attend any or all of these classes whether you’re participating in the 40-day yoga challenge or not.

April 26 — Awaken to Your Ten Bodies — We are multifaceted beings by nature and our physical body is only one of the aspects that defines us as humans. Come and experience, strengthen and balance all of your ten bodies through breath, movement and meditation.

May 3 — Understanding Through Compassion — According to Yogi Bhajan’s teachings, we have entered into the Age of Aquarius. Key to thriving in this new age is going beyond an intellectual understanding of the world and learning to understand through compassion. Experience yourself as an integral part of life and open yourself to exciting new possibilities.

May 10 — The Other Person is YOU — Consider that we see others as a reflection of ourselves. Qualities we admire in others are qualities that we possess. And any time we have a reaction to something someone else says or does we have an opportunity to see our shadow. Learn how to apply this teaching in a practical way and embrace your light and the shadow it casts.

May 17 — When the Time is On You…START — Is there anything in your life that you’re putting off? Resisting doing things is, in many cases, more draining that actually doing them. Learn to apply yogic technology to create momentum in your life as you take courageous steps along the path of fulfillment and happiness.

May 24 — A Way Through Every Block — Like it our not, challenges will come along throughout our life. Resisting these challenges can lead us to feeling stuck and drained. Embracing them presents us with an opportunity to learn and grow. As children, many of us loved to play with blocks. Bring your inner child and re-experience how much fun blocks can be.

May 31 — Vibrate the Cosmos — At a very basic level we humans (and everything else for that matter) exist as vibrations. Kundalini Yoga places a strong emphasis on chanting sacred mantras that support us in raising our vibration and reaching heightened levels of awareness. Don’t take my word for it…come and experience it for yourself.
