Nourish your transition between the seasons with Kundalini yoga, acupuncture and a nutritive plant-based meal using local, seasonal foods.

Begin your day with a delicious 2-hour Kundalini Yoga session featuring a kriya set (a series of postures) to facilitate the process of letting go o what no longer serve to make room for new beginnings. The kriya set will be followed by resting postures to welcome the passive energy of the colder months. The longer class time will allow for more in-depth instruction about the energetics of kundalini energy, and engage the meridian systems within the body.

The yoga workshop will be followed by seasonally supportive acupuncture points (seeds will be available as well as a non-needling option).

Afterward, enjoy reflective conversation and a cozy, community cooked brunch with warm, nutritive dishes featuring in-season offerings from the Full Cellar Farm prepared by farm manager, Lacey Walker.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is often referred to as the yoga of awareness by its many practitioners. It merges together the spiritual and scientific to create a deeper awareness of our true selves. By using active and subtle combinations of sound, breathwork, movement, and meditation, we can raise our collective consciousness of the universal energy that flows within ourselves and all things around us. This connection is made through what is known as kundalini energy. When we tap into the kundalini energy, it is powerful and heart-opening...and more than anything it is transformative.
