WHAT IS KUNDALINI YOGA?

Kundalini Yoga is an uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices that incorporate movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras with the goal of building up physical vitality and increasing consciousness. Also known as the yoga of transformation because of the powerful internal processes that occur as a result of the practice of these techniques.

The 200 hour program is a 10-month course that consists of eight in city seminars and two 4-day retreats in nature – one in December and one in July. This program works thoroughly on the fundamentals of yoga so you deepen on what is important and relevant in order to advance in your own path, as well as being able to share it with others.

Training offered either 1 weekend a month or 3 Monday mornings a month – from October to July.

WHAT MAKE US UNIQUE?

We seek to awake in the students the inner teacher and the desire to look at practice and life in a conscious way. We want to inspire you to have the courage and responsibility to really think for yourself and connect with your needs and emotions, which are unique, to live according to your purpose in life, or what in yogic philosophy is known as Dharma.
