Sunday, April 25
4:00 to 6:30 am
|Why get up to join us for early morning sadhana on Sunday? Because between
4:00 and 6:00 am, when the rays of the sun are hitting the earth at a 60 degree angle, Yogi Bhajan taught that all of the great spiritual teachers appear to bless, elevate and transform each of us.
Join the KYL Sangat* to receive these blessings! We start with Japji (meditative prayer), practice a Kundalini Yoga set, and end with 62 minutes of meditations (the Aquarian Sadhana mantras).
Sadhana means a daily spiritual practice. The yogic scriptures call for at least two-and-a-half hours of sadhana before the rising of the sun. The two-and-a-half hours is determined by the law of karma--everything you give, you receive back tenfold. So, if you dedicate one-tenth of your day to your higher consciousness, your whole day is covered by the returning energy. And, when a group of us meditates together, the total effect of our sadhana is multiplied by the number of people participating!
Getting up for sadhana is a victory over time and doing sadhana together is a victory over space. Sadhana is a self-victory. You become incapable of being defeated! (There is no charge for early morning sadhana.) After sadhana, please join Shakta and Hari Dev for breakfast at their condo. All are invited!
* 'Sangat' means the company of the holy. Please arrive between 3:30 and 4:15 am, the doors will be open only during that time. Use the North end doors (on the right as you face the building) to enter - only the door furthest left will be open.
We Now Have Several Gongs For Sale at KYL.
28" 30" 32"
The gong is the sound of creation, and those sounds perfectly match the energetic meridians of the human body. This is an under-utilized 'sound therapy' that turns off the stressors in the body/mind, releases blocks, and brings forth the relaxation response.
Paiste Symphonic Gongs have a slightly raised surface with a harmonic and universal sound structure. The fundamental note of the gong is balanced with the instrument's complex overtones. Your mind has no defense to the gong after 90 seconds.
Call to arrange a private showing and testing of the gongs at KYL (312) 922-4699.

|'Yoga Dance' with Namgeet Kaur happens every Thursday evening at 6 pm! A one-hour format to have fun with movement, music and dance! The focus is not on your performance.

Join us in Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada for an in-depth experience in the technology of how to fulfill yourself as a human being!
“If you want to learn something, read about it.
Kundalini Yoga is a sacred science. The sacredness of ‘you’ is awakened through its practice. You begin to realize there is nothing ‘out there’ that will make your life easier ... that you already have ‘within’ what you need for a life of ease, joy and abundance.
If this sounds like something you would like to explore on a deeper and personal level, then our Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training course in Prince Edward Island is designed just for you! In particular if you have noticed—
• ... that the pace of your life is increasing and you would like to know how to respond optimally to the constant change in your environment.Click Here for more details.

“The beauty of White Tantric Yoga is that it is subtle, it is exalting and it works to give you the mastery of life.” -- Yogi Bhajan
The yogis say that our minds release 1,000 thoughts in the blink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious and some get stuck in the subconscious affecting the conscious mind. These thoughts become feelings, emotions, desires and/or fantasies. Instead of mastering our mind, our mind and thoughts end up directing us!
White Tantric Yoga® (WTY) enables you to break through these subconscious blocks so that you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time (one full day) you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.
WTY is done in pairs as a group meditation. Everyone sits facing a partner and follows instructions for the meditation given via DVD by the Mahan Tantric and Master of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan. [No need to bring a partner.] A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate WTY Chicago.Our day will consist of between six and eight meditations incorporating:
· a yoga posture (Asana)Sometimes the meditations are accompanied by music. The meditations vary in length, up to 62-minutes. There are ample breaks between each meditation. The environment is peaceful with a friendly, uplifting and supportive atmosphere. Come spend the day with us and fortify your spirit!
Included in the course fee is a wonderful vegetarian lunch, featuring recipes from Hari Dev Singh's kitchen. Click Here to register.

Walking is the #1 form of exercise in America. And, Breathwalk® is the next step in feeling great and conditioning both the body and mind. Breathwalk is a yogic walking practice that combines specific patterns of conscious breathing synchronized with your walking steps. You experience profound changes in just a few minutes of Breathwalking. Some say that these changes are even more profound than yoga and meditation.
Breathwalk offers you a wide range of choices—choice over your energy level, choice over your mood, and choice over your mental state. This Training teaches over 20 Breathwalk programs each addressing a specific need. For example, you can choose a Breathwalk to promote ‘Energy and Vitality’ or ‘Weight Control and Overall Fitness.’ Or, you can choose a Breathwalk that shifts you from ‘Anxious to Calm’ or from ‘Scattered to Focused.’ The choice is always yours!
The one-weekend Personal Intensive fee is $250 and the two-weekend Instructor Training fee is $750 (both fees increase on July 1). Click Here for complete details.
