Christine has been practicing and teaching Kundalini for over 5 years. She was the Director of Golden Bridge Yoga in NYC, which is owned by internationally heralded and beloved Kundalini master teacher Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa. It was with Gurmukh's instruction and mentorship that Christine began teaching in 2010. Sat Sevak was the spiritual name given to Christine in the Kundalini tradition and means 'Servant of Truth.' As such, she designs her classes to help support her students in the quest for their own truth.
A wonderful practice for beginners and experienced yogis alike – Kundalini is known as the yoga of awareness, and doesn't require previous knowledge of poses or gymnast level flexibility. It is very different from other forms of yoga, and as such is a wonderful addition for those who already have a strong yoga practice in other disciplines. Expect to break a sweat, though, and to feel very relaxed afterwards! In class, we move, stretch, and breathe deeply in preparation for a closing meditation. Classes often involve healing mantras from the ancient texts associated with Kundalini yoga. These have a centering effect on the mind and make it easier to enter a meditative state. Kundalini has a long history as a practice, originating in the Upanishads in India in 500 BC. It gently challenges the mind and body to open, increasing intuition, and mind-body awareness.
