Kundalini (known as the coiled serpent) is a form of primal energy that lays dormant at the base of the spine. Awakening this energy is linked directly to unleashing the creative genius of man. Once the energy is awakened and guided up the spine through the chakras, true transformation occurs. Kundalini Yoga focuses on a technique called "breath of fire" which is the strongest form of detoxifying the body of deeply buried inner toxins.

This course curriculum is for 7 classes, and each class will focus on one of the seven chakras (energy centers) of the body and releasing the accumulated energy within it. Each chakra has a different function in the human body, the description of the courses are the qualities of each of the chakras beginning with the base of the spine in "Connection" and ending at the Crown of the head with "Divinity" as we reach the final spot where our connection to our Highest Self resides.

Interim Manager

As you may have noticed, LeeAnne has not been around the park for a while. That's because she has been on leave for personal reasons since June 29th. As the length of her absence is undetermined, we have hired Adam Purdy to fill in while she is away. Today is his first day on the job. So please take it easy on him as he struggles to learn all of the processes and procedures!

Adam has an extensive background in HR and business management. We are fortunate that he is available on such short notice. His previous experience will certainly be an asset to the team. We are confident that he will do far more than just fill the gap and certain that he will find many ways to streamline our processes as well as improve the member/visitor experience.
