Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul. In this practice we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. Kundalini Yoga brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
In this workshop we will gain an understanding of the basics of Kundalini and build into a dynamic and beautiful purifying series that will cleanse and uplift you. This tradition holds that the most important thing is your experience. Your experience goes right to your heart and is how you learn, grow and expand in consciousness. Words and the knowledge we gain from books is considered important yet no understanding is more valuable than the actual experience we have in our body, mind and soul.
Sierra Hollister is a mother, runner, green yogini and a dirty, tree hugger. She was incredibly blessed to start her Kundalini journey at Ahimsa Ashram and to be able to study directly with Yogi Bhajan. She has had yoga angels sprinkling lucky yoga dust at her feet since 1990. In addition to Yogi Bhajan, Sierra has been inspired and shaped by the teachings of Patabhi Jois, David Swenson, Sarah Powers, Sean Corn, Snatam Kaur and Gurucharan Singh Khalsa.
As much as Sierra loves asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditation- she finds her daily yoga guidance in the words of Aadil Palkhivala- “True yoga is not about the shape of your body but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.”
