Tuesdays, 7:30 am- 8:45 am, March 25- May 13
8 Week Course at Spring Integrative Health
$108 for the entire course, no drop-ins

SuperHealth is on the cutting edge of breaking habits and addictive behaviors. It is at the forefront of yogic therapeutic technology that is precise and proven effective. The system addresses alcohol, drugs, smoking, food issues, co-dependency, gambling, work, screen addiction, and sex addiction and offers tools for overcoming stress, depression, fatigue and anxiety. Developed by Yogi Bhajan, the approach combines the ancient wisdom of yogic science with the innovations of western sciences.

The core technology incorporates Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, specific breathing applications, and nutrition restoration with specific dietary and therapeutic juice formulas. SuperHealth operates on the understanding that the human potential of each person is infinite…. fully interconnected physically, mentally, and spiritually.


Overcoming Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through Kundalini Yoga
(A Women’s Course)

Fridays, 7:30 am- 8:45 am, March 28- May 16
8 Week Course at Spring Integrative Health
$108 for the entire course, no drop-ins.

No matter what the cause of the trauma, movement through Kundalini Yoga, breath work and mantra are time-tested approaches clinically demonstrated to be effective in helping people reconnect with their body, reduce symptoms and provide the support to move from a state of reactivity to an experience of safety and calm.

The yoga sets and meditations restore internal rhythmic balance, increase vitality, improve sleep, and work with the psoas muscle where trauma is held in the body. This program works for trauma survivors regardless of the source of trauma and is effective for both simple and complex trauma. Clinical diagnosis of PTSD is not a pre-requisite for participation.

Manifesting a GONG for Blissful Family Yoga

Sat Nam!  I am pleased to announce a GONG FUNDRAISER to benefit the beautiful people of Bozeman!  I’ve started an online GoFundMe campaign to raise money to purchase a gong to play during classes, workshops, and private sound healing sessions.  If your life has been touched by attending any classes I’ve offered, please consider paying it forward by participating in the purchase of this powerful instrument of transformation which will undoubtedly bring healing to many residents in our community.

There will also be a Prosperity Workshop & Gong Fundraiser at  Your Yoga on March 23, 1-3:30 pm, with all profits going to the gong fund!

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releasing us from the torrent of thoughts our mind releases, and it stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.  The gong impacts the body and it’s meridians. It releases blocks, reduces tension, and stimulates circulation. The result is a reorganization of the emotional energy and feelings that are tied into the body structure.

(excerpted from The Aquarian Teacher)

“The sound will carry you beyond your fears. The pressure (of the vibration of the gong) will release the nervous system of many illnesses… To regenerate the parasympathetic nervous system, nothing is more powerful than the sound of the gong.” –Yogi Bhajan

I love this photo of my son having his first gong playing lesson at age 5 with Karta Purkh Kaur!

Welcome back Gurunam Singh!

Back in July of 2012, Bozeman was graced with a lovely kirtan concert with internationally renowned Gurunam Singh.  It was a fabulous event, we sold 60 tickets, the music and the energy was divine!  I’m so delighted he is returning for not only another kirtan concert, but a chanting workshop as well!

Through Naad Yoga, the Yoga of Sound, we will open and explore the devotional space. Using mantras, meditations and mudras from the Kundalini Yoga tradition we will relax the mind so that we can be receptive to the subtleties of sound and consciousness in our meditations and in life. Come chant with us as we open our hearts and dive deeper into ourselves, deeper into the sacred spaces within.  It is always a fun experience with Gurunam Singh sharing his humor and stories. There will also be a question/answer time.

Gurunam Singh travels worldwide teaching courses in Naad Yoga and leading kirtans. He fell in love with His Guru, and chanting, many years back and feels blessed to be able to share the experience of praying, meditating and singing with so many people. He recently completed two new CD’s “Union” and “Breath of Devotion.”  In the spring he will be touring South America and China along with many places in the US.  We are so blessed to have him come to our little mountain town!

Join us on January 31, 2014 for a kirtan concert at Mountain Yoga, from 7-9 pm.  Please note the venue change- we’ll be at Mountain Yoga, not Your Yoga.  Tickets are $20 in advance (purchased directly from me or from Cactus Records) and at $25 at the door.  For a small service charge, you may reserve a ticket online in advance.

The following day, on February 1, 2014, Gurunam will offer a Naad Yoga Workshop, also at Mountain Yoga from 11 am- 2 pm.   Please note the venue change, we’ll be at Mountain Yoga, not Your Yoga.  Tickets are $50 (purchased directly from me or from Cactus Records) in advance and $60 at the door.  For a small service charge, you may reserve a ticket online in advance.
