Kundalini Yoga is a system that incorporates breath management (pranayama), postures (asana) and meditation with and without mantra. It is designed to allow the practitioner to discover their potential for excellence and develop awareness of Self. All Kundalini Yoga classes at Vidalia Yoga include a period of relaxation guided by the healing sound of the gong. The gong is an inter-vibratory tool used to heal the nervous system and develop the Inner Self. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.
Kundalini Sadhana is a Kundalini Yoga practice that starts during the ambrosial hours (4am to 8am) and involves reading the Japji Sahib, practicing Kundalini Yoga and includes an hour of meditation with mantra (chanting).
Vinyasa means "breath assisted movement". Therefore, Vinyasa Yoga focuses on using the breath to support the body and focus the mind throughout a sequence of movements. A typical Vinyasa Flow class includes a variety of standing, seated and supine postures strung together in an intuitive flow, a practice which makes for a complete workout for the body and meditation for the mind.
Yin & Restorative Yoga utlizes some of the more basic yoga postures (asanas) and, by holding these postures for 3 to 5 minutes at a time, promotes regeneration and flexibility in the deeper tissues of the body. Poses are comfortable and emphasize the release of tension and gentle re-alignment. Restorative poses are beneficial to all those seeking stress reduction and relaxation.
