Raj Yoga Center, located in Sterling, has been serving the area since 1975, teaching and sharing the benefits of Kundalini yoga. Known as the “yoga of awareness”, Kundalini yoga offers innumerable physical, spiritual and mental benefits, and can be practiced by all ages and abilities. In addition to the classes regularly offered, including a community class by donation each Sunday from 6 to 7:30 p.m., they will be hosting two special offerings this June. The workshop, Flourishing in These Changing Times will be offered from 1 to 5 p.m. on June 2. On June 8 to 10, Yoga50Plus: Kundalini Chair Yoga will be taught by Willem Wittstam, aka Mangala Singh.
In the workshop, Flourishing in These Changing Times, led by Gurunater Kaur Khalsa, participants will explore the questions: As we dwell in the Age of Aquarius, what does that really mean? What were Yogi Bhajan’s predictions for these coming times and the physical changes for our planet and for us as growing, conscious beings?
The message of Yoga50Plus is that in the second half of life: the best is yet to come. To age successfully, we have to recognize and let go of old patterns. The meditations taught will help to adjust our lives according to the changing challenges. This training is not just for the aging, but also for who have physical limitations due to past injury, surgery or handicap. In this course, yoga teachers can learn to accommodate their students with such limitations. It is also aimed at yogis who want to use the depth of Kundalini Yoga to understand their own aging process as a stage of maturation and yoga teachers who are considering teaching seniors or who are already leading their own 50plus classes.
Though this is offered as a three-day workshop, participants can have a taste of the full workshop by enrolling for one day only.
