This is a guided meditation class following traditional Indian teachings of Kundalini Yoga and in particular the Siddha Yoga tradition.
( The objective of this type of Yoga is to transform the Yogi into a Siddha- or enlightened person- within their lifetime). The class consists of didactic teaching from Hindu and Yogic texts such as Vijnana Bhairava, the Upanishads etc that allow the student to understand the nature of Self, breath, chakras, mudras and the nature of Truth. The knowledge will be used to then have the student "experience" higher states of awareness and transcendency themselves. The class is free of religious dogma but terms used are in Sanskrit and follow Indian teaching. No prior experience with meditation is required.
