Kim Balzan instructs the following:
Yoga Nidra with Sound Healing
A profoundly relaxing experience with gong or crystal bowl sound healing, and yoga nidra. Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based meditation done lying on the floor, supported with gentle props. A series of breath, body, and awareness techniques combined with intention-setting, are designed to bring the body and mind into a deeply subtle state of being. 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as three hours of sleep!
Kundalini, Crystal Bowls and Yoga Nidra
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
