Participating in Aquarian Sadhana at YW has been a true gift. For me, its the best possible way to start the day! When practiced regularly, I experienced a greater sense of ease and tranquillity in life. No morning java required-a real taste of bliss! ~ Suzanah (Chandradeep)

During Morning Sadhana, I have noticed connection to myself on a deeper level, old patterns that are not serving you fall away, my mind becomes calm and less reactive. The feelings of gratitude shine though. ~ Michael Capaldo

While doing Sadhana, I could deal with life’s terms with ease. I learn how to act instead of reacting. I found my mind racing during Sadhana - after Sadhana, I found my mind more focused. Like Yogi Bhajan said... I am “clearing the mind” ~ Sharmila

Sadhana is run on a by donation basis. Participants are requested to contribute by making a donation to Yoga West.

These introductory classes are designed for people who are experiencing Kundalini Yoga for the first time and for students who want to brush up on the basics. No previous knowledge or experience is assumed, and each class focuses on a specific aspect of Kundalini Yoga.

Tim Stringer (Rama Singh) has been teaching Kundalini Yoga since 1999, is a professionally trained co-active coach and is the founder of Technically Simple.

Kundalini ReBirth

Angelic Ghosting

“You store, contain, maintain and keep a lot of junk in your subconscious. Well, we are going to get rid of certain tragedies from certain years only. Are you ready? — Yogi Bhajan

“Do you know how terrible a situation you create when, as a human being, you cannot live in harmony, you cannot communicate, you cannot keep your promises, you cannot deliver what you are here to deliver? You are children of a commotional self... Why is making a trauma important to you? Why is creating drama important to you? Why are yelling and screaming important to you? Why is getting angry important to you? Why is getting depressed important to you? Why are empathy and sympathy important to you? The mind is nothing, and the body has strength.”

With the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Rebirthing – Angelic Ghosting, we will do the inner work to purify the mind and spring clean the garbage from our subconscious. “Angelic is a very old phenomena. Angelic Ghosting will allow you to confess, admit and redeem the burden from your subconscious mind. The purpose of life is happiness. Discipline gives you happiness. This kriya will allow you to trust God within you and others and live as your Higher Self.” — Yogi Bhajan

The Sacred Space of the Mother

Saturday, May 30, 12-5 pm

Yoga West                 ··

The Sacred Space of the Mother

Yogi Bhajan’s teachings on Prengnacy, Childbirth and Motherhood.

Dive into the deep well of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings on pregnancy, child birth and motherhood. We will discuss:

• Mother as the first teacher

• Mastering the polarities; the dance with the masculine and feminine and how it relates to pregnancy and parenthood

• Learn more tips and techniques for teaching prenatal yoga

• Supporting and nurturing the family for the 40 days after birth

And much more!

This is an excellent workshop for any women who are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant. It is also for teachers who have always been curious or interested in teaching prenatal yoga or women’s yoga classes.

Bir Kaur Khalsa O’Flaherty KRI Teacher Trainer, Prenatal Yoga Teacher, Childbirth Educator, Birth Doula. Bir Kaur can’t remember a time when she hasn’t been fascinated with pregnancy and birth. Since childhood, she’s been mesmerized by pregnant women and the birth process—a reverence that deepened upon becoming a mother in 2007.

A certified pre-natal yoga teacher since 2006, Bir Kaur also serves women during pregnancy and motherhood in her roles as birth doula and childbirth educator. Her passion lies in working with couples to help them communicate with each other and work together to create not only the birth that they want, but a strong foundation as a couple to start their family. Her philosophy that Woman is the foundation of their family and of society and that pregnancy and what happens to a mother and a developing child during that time and during the birth matters-not just for that mother and child, but for the society as a whole creates the foundation for her work. You can check out her Prenatal Yoga DVD on her website www.mabirth.com

Bir Kaur is also a certified level 1 and level 2 Teacher of Kundalini yoga, as well as a level 1 Teacher Trainer. She’s been instrumental in developing Vancouver’s internationally-certified, Yoga Alliance-registered teacher training program (which is now in its 23nd year) and has served as a director of 3HO Vancouver. In her spare time, Bir Kaur serves as both a staff of Khalsa Ladies Camp an annual spiritual retreat for women on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast.

The Journey

The Course is divided into three two-day Journeys. Each journey is comprised of seven stages, taking you step by step into a deeper level of awakening and realization.

First Journey: Crystallize Yourself

Sat-Sun, June 6-7

with Guru Raj Kaur                 ··

Upset? Boredom? Irritation? Frustration?

Focus. Absorption. Now we’re getting somewhere! We don’t often associate “negative” sensations and feelings like Irritation and Frustration with Meditation; yet these are very real stages that we must pass through in order to achieve Focus (Dhyan) and Absorption (Pratyahar) and ultimately fulfill the First Journey in the 21 Stages of Meditation as outlined by Yogi Bhajan: The Crystallized Self.
