Gong Yoga: A Journey Through the Chakras
Experience the transformational sound of the Gong with the practices of yoga to balance the seven chakras. Multiple gongs and guided visualizations will take you into the deep relaxation of Yoga Nidra on this sonic journey through the chakras.
Awakening the Positive Mind: Kundalini Meditation Intensive
In Kundalini Yoga, the aspect of your mind that allows you to visualize possibilities and act on opportunities is called the Positive Mind.
When this part of your mind is balanced through meditation, you can positively move forward in your life by recognizing the gifts that are available to you. You can respond appropriately and creatively to any situation, person, or circumstance to fulfill your life’s purpose.
In this Kundalini Yoga intensive, we will practice all 13 core meditations to develop, balance and strengthen your Positive Mind.
“The Positive Mind is expansive and practical. It searches for pleasures, for fulfillment, for the possibilities to utilize anything that you experience. It is constructive, risk taking, and active. It examines every thought and feeling for resources to do what you want.” – Yogi Bhajan
Astrology, Yoga and the Gong: Planetary Sound Healing
Explore and discover the relationship between Vedic Astrology, Yoga and Sound Healing with specially designed Planetary Gongs played by Mehtab, a Vedic astrologer, Kundalini yoga teacher trainer and master gong player.
Using meditations and mudras that invoke planetary energies with the sound of these unique gongs tuned to the frequencies of the planets, you can experience the healing and transformational power of the cosmos.
