Kundalini, Crystal Bowls and Yoga Nidra


This class is taught by:

Kim Balzan

Kim was a professional makeup artist in the television & media industry for over 20 years working in Los Angeles, New York, and Phoenix, and that became her home.
After taking a break and having children, she felt there had to be something more, something bigger to bring her peace and connection. Thats when Yoga Nidra and
Kundalini Yoga fell in her lap and changed her life overnight. Sound completely changed and transformed her life in every way, and now works with private clients and large
groups, to work with these tools of transformation throughout the country to help others see their true connection to themselves and awaken.

Kim is a Holistic Practitioner certified in many different modalities,
with the most passion going into Vibrational Sound, working with her Alchemy Crystal Bowls and gongs.
She is a Certified Amrit Method Yoga Nidra Facilitator, Reiki Master,
200-hour RYT, and a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, currently working on Level 2.

Veda Spidle

Veda Spidle was born in Lithuania and at a young age immigrated to the United States with her family. Since childhood, she has been surrounded by art, yoga, meditation, and spirituality. These influences led her to pursue a B.A. in Interior Design and later, to live abroad to teach English in South Korea, where she met her husband. Her experience there gave her a foundation for connecting to students, making learning fun, and expanding her perspective of life.

Upon leaving South Korea, she and her husband moved to Arizona where the opportunity to blend her love of yoga with her passion for teaching presented itself. With the support of her family, friends, mentors, and students, Veda completed Yoga Teacher Training and is now an E-RYT at the 200-hour level and an RYT at the 500-hour level with a focus on Anusara® yoga. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga by constantly attending additional training and workshop classes, most recently she is pursuing another 200-hour training certification in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.

Veda enjoys teaching people of all ages and levels of ability. She aspires to continue sharing her love of yoga, meditation, health, and life with others, and most importantly, hopes to teach people to have self-compassion through yoga.

"Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, 'you owe me.' Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky." ~Hafiz of Shiraz

Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is a dynamic, beautiful and complete practice. It is known as “the yoga of awareness” and the aim of Kundalini yoga is to awaken the coiled energy (Kundalini) that resides at the base of the spine, bringing the energy through the 6 chakras (energy centers) all the way through the crown (7th chakra). The raising of the energy is done in each class through Pranayama (breath), Mudra (hand positions to activate energy points and direct the breath through the body), Mantra (using the language of Gurmukhi, the tongue hits the palette of the mouth activating energy points to stimulate specific brain function), Kriya (yoga poses/postures), Meditation and Gong (sound-healing therapy). The aim of Kundalini yoga is for one to access their spiritual potential by speaking truth, upholding values, and direct consciousness through compassion to uplift, serve and heal humanity.

Kundalini yoga, known as the yoga of awareness, is a fast and effective way to clear the mind, energize the body, and uplift the spirit. Students see and feel the results quickly, feeling energized, relaxed, and uplifted after each class.

 

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation helps the body to clear any emotional blockages, releases stress/tension and helps the body come back into a balanced rejuvenated peaceful
state.
