Class: Samadhi Kundalini
Schedule: Acacia Room, 3:00-3:50pm
Description: If you have never tried Kundalini Yoga before this is the
perfect class to experience it. Kundalini is a unique yoga where you
focus on your breath, practice Breath of Fire and send energy up and
down your spine very quickly. As a result, your body "awakens" and
you release what is no longer serving you. Have you ever heard of
the "Kundalini High"? Come and enjoy it and find out first hand.

and all is coming.” Nikki shares "I am a student of yoga first and a
teacher second. What I have learned through my personal practice is
Gratitude, Kindness, Courage, and Compassion. Gratitude for having
the ability to move my body every day. Kindness to myself,
especially on the days that I don’t feel 100%. Courage to get back
on my mat after pulling a hamstring or injuring my neck. Compassion
because whether its a physical injury or a mentally exhausting week,
at the end of the day all that matters is that I showed up on my mat.
I encourage the students who come into my class to do the same,
while continuing to grow and explore their practice.
