Centered Heart

An Evening of Kundalini Yoga and Sacred Sound

with Alison and Dionne Kohler-Newvine

When the mind is still and focused, the peace of the heart becomes a living reality.

Our heart’s electromagnetic field, or aura, is the most powerful in all the body.

When we sync up our brain waves with the electrical impulses of our hearts we can access the inner peace and self-acceptance that enables us to be of service in our world.

This event will include the full practice of Kundalini Yoga,

including kriya, pranayam and chanting, as well as Community Heartbeat Drumming, Sound Healing Deep Relaxation with Reiki, and, of course, Yogi tea and Cookies.

No experience necessary. We love beginners!!!

All ages, bodies, genders, and experience levels welcome.

Mats and props available if needed.  Chair Yoga option also available.
