Spring Equinox Sadhana


With Jay Suttonbrown, E-RYT 500

Doing Sadhana in a group develops group consciousness.

"At the beginning of sadhana everyone has a different vibration. Some have traces of dreams; others are already filled with concerns for the day; and still others come with different expectations about sadhana. The more people there are, the more these individual differences balance out and create a harmony. The happiness of one person balances the sadness of another. Then the entire group finds its energy directed by the activity of the sadhana itself. If, in morning sadhana, one cannot curtail the barriers and get to Oneness, I don’t think there is any other time it can happen. All for one, and one for all. That is the principle." ~The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan

Enjoy the transformative work of Pranayama, a short Kriya, and 62 Minutes of Mantra Meditation. Experience the powerful energy of balance as we move into Spring.

The Grounding Power of the Root - Releasing Fears with Kundalini Yoga


With Jay Suttonbrown, E-RYT 500

Being completely present with yourself can be hard to do. We can go through great lengths to be numb ourselves from this feeling on a daily basis through our choices, and most especially our thoughts. Being in this world is having both feet rooted in the ground while having the human experience. Being grounded also makes you committed to your path and helps put into action that which you see from the higher centers.

When we are grounded we are more able to do the big emotional work of acceptance.”  Gurmukh

“The barriers to change lay deep in the subconscious and are not easy to access with your rational, thinking mind. These blocks can be released through the chakra balancing practices of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.” Gloria Latham

“Acceptance is the opposite of judgement.” Jay Suttonbrown

Join Jay Suttonbrown, E-RYT 500 for a powerful workshop designed to awaken your power and potential with Kundalini Yoga. Hosted by Jan Norman Yoga, come and discover how to source the gifts of the first chakra, and surrender the shadow aspects as we clear blocks related to fear, worthiness and lack. This workshop is sure to leave you with clarity, insight, and will empower your possibilities.

  • Date: Saturday October 28th, 2017
