August 18, 2021, 12pm ET


About This Workshop

In this event, host Kim Weeks and Pritpal Kaur Khalsa explore the origins, evolution, and modern-day story of Kundalini. This practice is a dynamic blend of postures, pranayama (breath), mantra (chanting), movement, and meditation that awakens the flow of life force energy along the spine and helps us become healthier, happier, and more spiritually connected.

Yoga continues to evolve to include deeply varied styles and types of practice, all rooted in a shared ancient history. Yoga Lineages is a series of conversations that explores seven of today’s most widely recognized yoga lineages, revealing what is unique about these practices. Whether you’re seeking peace of mind, strength in body, or are simply interested in finding a more mindful way of living, yoga can help and is a practice for all.
