If you’re curious about Kundalini meditation and chanting, please come try this empowering practice.
Kate explains these techniques in an approachable, gentle, no-nonsense way. Learn some warmups you can do to relieve discomfort around your spine. Then try a few different meditations interspersed with breathing patterns and progressive relaxation. You don’t need to be able to sit for long periods, but you can if you want to. You can also sit in a chair or lie down.
Kate trained with Yogi Bhajan and Hari Kaur in 2002, and specializes in demystifying the practice for beginners. Questions are encouraged in this interactive workshop.
The aim of all yoga is to awaken the creative potential you already carry within you, and this is one accessible and powerful pathway.
About the facilitator:
Kate Lynch (she / her) has been teaching yoga and meditation, and cultivating community, since 2002. Her first 40 years were spent making art, wandering, and eventually remembering to come home to Brooklyn and put down roots. She endeavors in each class to co-create inclusive space for self nurturing and unfolding. Her classes are welcoming, friendly, creative and intuitive, and reflect her core values: empathy, integrity, equity and respect. She offers accessible variations and encourages nonjudgmental awareness. Her intense drive to serve the greater good currently manifests as advocating for inclusion alongside atypical and marginalized families; and encouraging a collective sense of belonging. In her role as Ocean’s mama, she continues to learn about advocacy, patience and neurodiversity. Kate has specialized training in meditation, mindfulness, anxiety, trauma, prenatal, postpartum and yoga for kids (including differently abled kids). Recent trainings: Center for Racial Justice PD for educators, and Integrating Equity with Susanna Barkataki. Her influences include Hari Kaur, Seane Corn, Dianne Bondy, Bo Forbes, Yogi Bhajan and Thich Nhat Hanh.
