I am new to Kundalini Yoga. I thought it would be difficult to participate (especially after having a knee surgery). Lynn (the yoga instructor) makes it seem so effortless. She is great (the funny thing is that she is also a CPA; I am wondering if these yoga sessions are tax deductible lol ).
Liked the meditation part and the breathing exercises.
I'm just starting out with yoga and Rasayan provides a comfortable environment to learn in. I appreciate that the classes are appropriate for people with different skill levels. I find that yoga is a great way for me to reduce stress and helps me wind down after work. I like that the classes focus as more than just being flexible -- breathing and meditation are also important.
Lynn is a wonderful teacher. She's mindful of making sure new people are looked after and she knows her stuff. Unlike other forms of yoga, the movements seemed more focused. There is also a mediation portion that makes it easy for beginners to "get" meditation. Just when you think it's simple, you begin to sweat. The bonus is the special tea she makes for everyone at the end. It's a delicious blend that makes you feel nurtured.
In the past, I've participated in her optional 40-day cleansing by giving up certain foods. On it, you can give up sugar, wheats, processed foods and/or meat. I was a revelation, and I can say that I'm a lot more thoughtful about what's going into my body now.
The plus was also some weight loss. So for those in Weight Watchers two buildings down, it worth looking into.
Simply said, I enjoy something that works on my body and mind at a level that feels attainable.
I recently started kundalini yoga at the Rasayan Center, having never done yoga. I found the exercises accessible, eminently doable for a novice, but appropriately challenging. Lynn (the yogini) is very experienced and adept. She keeps the pace moving without rushing. Her class has facilitated my focus, relaxed me, reduced stress, as well as stretched me in all the right places.
In keeping with a philosophy of general health and well-being, Rasayan also recommends a yoga inspired 40-day diet, which for me was very successful.
The class at Rasayan emphasizes the common sense approach of listening to your body, to challenge yourself in a measured way.
I enthusiastically recommend Rasayan. Yoga (and diet) can be transformative, recalibrating the body and changing habits for the better, significantly improving health - mind and body. It's a great class.
This is a great location for me after work.
I've had several instructors there and each are amazing with structured sets that have a focus. I especially love coming here on Tuesdays and transitioning from work mode into a more relaxed meditation with good physical components. Extra bonus points for the Yogi tea and homemade date balls at the end.
