Kundalini Yoga and Meditation- For Your Inner Fire and Transformation

In this class, students will be given tools and a direct experience for igniting the inner fire.
In the Yogic texts, it describes the alchemy of combining Ojas (latent energy), Agni (inner fire) and Prana (life force or breath) for an inner metamorphosis with lasting benefits. This class will provide you the inner alchemy plus the addition of live music and Naad (cosmic sound current) that uplifts and heals at profoundly deep levels. Come experience the transformation that Kundalini Yoga so consistently delivers!

Jaya Lakshmi’s largest influence in the realms of mantra, kirtan and bhakti came from her connection with the Guadiya Vaishnavs, otherwise known as the Hare Krishna’s. She was initiated in 1992 by Srila Govinda Maharaj and lived on and off in ashrams and likeminded communities for years afterwards. Jaya Lakshmi began sharing her beautiful kirtans in 1992. Since then she has four solo chant albums on Sequoia Records. In addition, Jaya Lakshmi was the lead singer to the highly influential tribal techno band Lost at Last before their break up in 2003.

Ananda Yogiji is an internationally loved musician, song composer and mantra enthusiast. His musical offerings complement his yogic practices with a deep devotional spirit. His music channels a unique blissful energy current supported by lyrical heart songs and mantras with roots in Sanskrit and Gurbani. He sings, plays guitar, harmonium and bansuri flute. From 2010 to 2016, he was partnered musically and intimately with Jaya Lakshmi. Currently they have moved into a soul friendship as well as collaborative space in their offerings. Together, they have toured internationally offering musical prayer-formances, Kirtronica, yoga and mantra workshops as well as holding their own retreats.
