Originally from the hills and trees of the northeast, Ananda is at home in the Blue Ridge Mountains where she has been teaching Kundalini Yoga since 2006. Through the lineage of Yogi Bhajan, Anne Novak and Sierra Hollister, the powerful teachings of Kundalini Yoga continually connect her with her true self, the source of all, and remind her that there is no separation between yoga, breath, art and life. Ananda is passionate about sharing this ancient technology and it's amazing healing benefits because she knows that it works. Her classes intend to challenge, inspire and support each individual to push through blockages allowing expression of their fullest potential. Ananda is deeply committed to her yoga practice on and off the mat every day. She also finds blissful inspiration through trance dancing, painting, cartwheels, stilt walking and riding her motorcycle on the parkway.
*Recommended for Beginners
Gentle indicates the class is not vigorous, but slow and soothing, perfect for those wanting a more relaxed and softer practice. Also excellent for beginners, the elderly, and pregnant women.
Power indicates a vigorous practice that will challenge and energize you with its focus on building strength and concentration as you flow through powerful, flowing sequences. This type of class is meant to challenge you and your existing practice, make you sweat, have some fun, and try and inversion (or three!). Not recommended for beginners who do not have a basic knowledge of yoga postures.
Warm classes allow the body’s tissues to soften more deeply, as the room is kept between 80-89 degrees.
Hot classes involve a dynamic and challenging practice in a room heated to 90 degrees or above. You will sweat, so please bring your own mat, water bottle, and towel. First time students are discouraged from attending HOT classes, as they tend to be fast-paced, and are meant for those already familiar with basic postures.
