[Live Streamed] Elevate Your Energy: A Three-Week Series with Shari Larson
May 17, 2020| $30
While we often think of our yoga practice as a physical practice, the basis of asana (postures) is stimulating or raising the kundalini energy. In the practice of kundalini yoga, we use movement, mantra, breath, and sound to specifically stimulate the movement of the subtle body energy.
Students can expect an energetic practice, which can boost your energy and help you de-stress, and some time (5-10 min) spent in meditation, whether silent or with a mantra.
Dates: Sundays from May 17th, 2020 – May 31st, 2020
Time: 1pm – 2:15pm
Cost: $30/ 3 sessions
Note: This is a fundamentals class and will present some techniques from this lineage but will not cover everything.
About the instructor: Shari Larson
I walked into my first (hot) yoga class in 2002. The entire 90 minutes I ran through a variety of emotions, mostly frustration and anger. I was so glad when it was finally over but realized that perhaps there was something there to be uncovered. Over the next several years whenever I tried a new style of yoga and experienced intense emotions I had to go back to figure out why. This curiosity has led me to a variety of teacher trainings from Vinyasa to Yin to Kundalini and to more anatomy trainings than I care to admit.
These days the styles I practice and teach the most are the quieter practices of Yin/Restorative and slower practices of yoga where there is time to be curious about the thoughts that arise and the sensations that move through the body. I love to incorporate a variety of tools – balls, stretchy bands, blankets, and even pool noodles to explore new ways of moving the body. My favorite moments in class are when I look around and see a variation in the shapes being practiced. Every body is different and we’ve lived different lives, so it makes sense that no one alignment would work for everyone.
When not teaching or preparing to teach, you can often find me walking my dog or wandering around the Puget Gulch, my favorite escape from the city.
