Kundalini Yoga, The Language of Love
The Language of Love
Loving words in relationship seem easy at the beginning, when love is brand new. What if that level of love and conscious awareness could be the baseline of your daily conversations?
Dwindling love happens within a relationship when harsh words are spoken, and trust broken. In this class you will develop skillful communicating and listening. Through Kundalini yoga, you'll disperse anger and criticism, unlocking the door to better relationships with your partner, and with everyone. Learn to speak kindly and with authority, become aware and empowered, set aside the "critical parent voice" and speak lovingly to your children. This is an on-going class that focuses on the tools of Kundalini Yoga and the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. All are invited, singles and couples. Please register online to attend. Class begins on March 9 at 5:30 p.m
