Fundamentals of Kundalini Yoga

Fundamentals of Kundalini Yoga

Led by Tammy Maxwell

Date: Sunday, Feb 26th
Time: 3 – 5 pm
Cost: $30 Member / $40 – Non-Member

This workshop will consist of basic terminology frequently used throughout our Kundalini practices. We will review some basic history of Kundalini yoga and the science behind it. Students will be actively guided through unique breathing techniques (pranayama), body locks (Bandhas), and simple eye gazes; while explaining the importance of each one and why we do it.

We will practice the “Kriya for Elevation,” which will involve movement, breathwork, mudras, mantras, eye gaze (Dristi), bandhas, and intention.
The Kriya will begin by tuning in with the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo) and the Mangala Charan protection prayer.

Handouts will be given on all material (including the above mantra and prayer). Finally, the workshop will conclude with an active meditation called the Kirtan Kriya and an extended Savasana.

* A “Kriya for Elevations” – systematically exercises the spine and aids in prana (energy) circulation to balance the chakras. This exercise opens the lungs, brings the brain’s hemispheres to a state of alertness, and consolidates the magnetic field.

*warm, healthy beverages (infused water, herbal tea, or healthy hot chocolate) will be provided. Mats, blankets, and bolsters are available in the studio.

About the Facilitator:

Tammy Maxwell has been married to her high school sweetheart since 1997. Together they raised three wonderful daughters in Brookline, NH. In 2021, after 20 years of living in NH, Tammy and her family relocated to the beautiful South Coast of Mattapoisett, MA.

Tammy started her journey into energy healing after contracting Lyme disease in 2006. After receiving her first Reiki treatment, she was in awe of the physical, emotional, and spiritual shift during that first session. Tammy was hooked and ready to learn the art of this ancient healing technique. This was a life-changing experience for her – one that ignited a passion within to go deeper spiritually. She was inspired to practice Kundalini Yoga and upped her meditation practice after reading some inspirational books by Gabriel Bernstein, Wayne Dyer, and other great spiritual authors. Little did she know how significantly this would improve her life.

Fast forward five years, Tammy completed her Reiki Master certification in 2007, 200-hour YTT at Aerial Moon Yoga in Nashua, NH. in 2020, and 200-hour Kundalini YTT through Yoga Farm Ithaca in 2023. She loves working with individuals looking for a better way to improve their overall health on all levels. Let her help you access a spiritual relationship of your own and uncover the power within every one of us. She can help you in many ways, no matter where you are on your spiritual path.
