For all spiritual seekers, travel to India has a special appeal. The very land is steeped in spirituality where many ancient practices useful today were developed and perfected over 5,000 years ago. Simply walking the land can leave a profound and lasting imprint on your soul.
Join Shakta and Hari Dev as they lead another yatra* to India where you will enjoy safe food, excellent lodging and the guidance of experienced local staff every step-of-the-way. This is a special year to visit India as the Kumbh Mela is taking place in Allahabad. The ‘Kumbh’ is a mass pilgrimage at which Hindus gather at the Mother Ganges to bathe for purification and removal of karma.
In addition, the 4th International Punarnava Ayurveda & Yoga Conference is scheduled for Feb. 17-18 in Allahabad in the midst of the Kumbh Mela. And, Shakta Kaur has been asked to teach once again at the Conference! So, your tour to India includes admission to all of the Conference sessions as well!
Yoga to Tap Into Your Knowledge & Wisdom
November & December at KYL
Ensure your Happiness, Success and Excellence!
In the past, great knowledge about human potential was guarded by secrecy and layers of initiations. You had to be born into a particular family or have a particular destiny to learn the sacred science of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. Those days are gone forever thanks to Yogi Bhajan’s teaching the thousands of meditations and kriyas that he brought to the west beginning in 1968.
During the months of November and December, every class at KYL features meditations and kriyas designed for you to tap into your own inner knowledge and wisdom. You’ll not only remove fears, you’ll remove self-imposed limitation while broadening your focus at the same time. Expect resources, facts and opportunities to appear to substantiate your vision.
If you’ve become a little too limited, narrow or, simply afraid, come to KYL and tap into your inner knowledge and wisdom that is sometimes difficult to access on your own. You’ll find that touch of Infinite knowledge within—your intuition. And, you’ll go deep within to rest your mind, reset your behavior and remember that you incarnated to experience happiness, success and excellence!

Full Moon - October 29
New Moon - November 13
(Above Dates Adjusted for Central Time Zone)
The New Moon is when you are at your lowest...energy-wise. It is
a good day to fast on lemon and water. Fast from sun-up until the
next morning at breakfast, when you "break" the "fast."
... is the time between the New Moon and the day before the Full
Moon. During this time the energy of the body moves into your higher
centers (chakras). This is the time to bring new things, new people
or new relationships into your life or to accelerate the progress
of your special projects.
11 Days After
Yogi Bhajan taught that this is the day when you are in balance.
The glandular system readjusts itself on this day. Your metabolism
is changing, so if you eat very lightly (green foods) or if you
live just on water and lemon today, your health will be perfect.
Eat very lightly during the day. Eat only one meal and drink lemon
and water the rest of the day.
You are naturally accelerated on a full moon. You are at your highest
energy level. The secretions in your body will be at their maximum,
so you don't want your energy being used to consume food. Save your
energy to reconstruct yourself. Try to drink only liquids on this
day. If you feel you must eat, drink only milk. (But, don't drink
cold milk right out of the refrigerator. Milk should be brought
to a boil. Allow the milk to foam up and then bring the heat down
so the milk is on a slow boil for 5-10 minutes. While cooking it,
you may add a pinch of ground turmeric, a pinch of black pepper,
a cinnamon stick, or a few pinches of ginger to reduce any mucous
causing side effect.)
... is the time between the Full Moon and the day before the New
Moon. This is the best time to remove things, relationships or situations
from your life that no longer serve you. It is not generally thought
of as the best time to start a new project.
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
($13) - not on Friday
(After Sunday's class join us for a vegetarian potluck.)
A Thought From Yogi Bhajan
The greatest education man has to learn is not medical science, not sociology, not chemistry, not biology, not mathematics, but the science of man, the science of self. The science of self and self-awareness is the highest knowledge a man can possess because then you can pull through all circumstances.
