Another year and the dark season is upon us. The long nights draw us inward, asking us to examine our inner worlds and how they color and shape our outer circumstances. What a great time for meditation! Yogi Bhajan once told the Nirvairs that with our extreme day and night cycles, we must either drink a lot or meditate a lot up here in Alaska. For those of us more inclined to meditation, Kundalini classes continue this month:
- in Anchorage with Andrea @ Inner Dance Yoga Studio Sundays 1-2:30pm
- in Juneau with Grace/Sahaj @ Rainforest Yoga Tuesdays 5:30-7pm and with Sushma Harimandir Kaur (Susan Clark) and Haridass Kaurr (Dawn Huette). Wednesdays @ Harborview Elementary School, Room 015, 6-7:30pm until December 11.
- in Homer with Anna/Shivcharan (aka Kundalini Yoga North) @ Many Rivers Wednesdays (all levels) 10-11:30am, Saturdays (prenatal) 2-3:30pm, and Saturdays (all levels) 4-5:30pm.
- in Sitka with Mike @ Yoga Union Thursdays 7:15-8:30pm until November 21.
And don’t forget that winter solstice is coming up soon! Some of us will be going to the big gathering in Florida, while others of us will gather for local solstice events. Since I started taking kundalini classes with the Nirvairs, I have not missed the opportunity to attend a kundalini winter solstice ceremony and have found that the intentions I’ve set during those times have consistently manifested in uncanny and beautiful ways. And there’s nothing like yogi tea and cookies with your yoga buddies!
