A dynamic practice that develops stamina by using physical postures, movement, breathwork, meditation, and mantra to purify the blood, strengthens the nervous system, and invokes a glandular shift, the Kundalini yoga class will be followed by Sound Therapy with wellness consultant, Lisa Oxford. Wear light-colored cotton clothing, preferably white, as it supports the practice and expands the projection and electromagnetic field. Participation is free, but pre-registration is essential to ensure social distancing measures can be observed.
