Kundalini Yoga for Women
Experience your divine feminine potential with Kundalini Yoga and meditation. This class is very similar to the Saturday Kundalini Yoga class in its format and overall positive effects on the mind, spirit, and major systems of the body, only that it is an exclusively women' class. This allows for a safe, healing atmosphere for all and the chance to explore the vast amount of teachings and techniques specifically for women that is available in the Kundalini Yoga teachings. It is also a bit less strenuous than the Saturday class, with more modifications offered.
This class offers women tools for developing physical strength and discipline, inner radiance, and grace to face the challenges of life. As much as this class is about a woman learning to take better care of her her health and wellness, it's also about her seeing that she lives and serves as a light to the world and that by developing the awareness of her inherent connection with all of life and with her own inner divinity she can better fulfill her own destiny. Another important part of this class is that between the warm ups and the yoga set of the day, each person is given an opportunity to just say their name, or to share their intention or what's on their heart that day. Cathy Herford who is a local Reiki Master Teacher, Medical and Energy Intuitive offers restorative (Reiki) energy to participants during the class share.
My name is Ruby Koa and I’ve been teaching yoga in Bellingham since 2009. I’ve been on quite a journey since then, having taught in a few different locations and finally am blessed to have my own space. Though Kokoro Yoga itself is a one teacher operation, and quite a small one at that, a variety of class styles are offered including various forms of Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Flow, and Kundalini Yoga. As the Japanese word, "kokoro" (it means heart/mind, center/essence) suggests, my intention always is to teach from my heart, with the emphasis of accommodating you wherever you're at. I also aim to cultivate a sense of community and camaraderie in each class, meaning you can look forward to tea (and sometimes snacks) being served after most classes. I also offer regular Women’s Full Moon circles and events to celebrate the solstices and equinoxes such as Kundalini Yoga and Double Gong Relaxations. So whether you're looking to improve your fitness and flexibility, deepen your awareness of breath, body, and spirit, or just a chance to relax and stretch out, at least one of these classes or events has something to offer you!
