“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

WHAT IS IT?
White Tantric Yoga® is world-renowned as one of the most powerful and beautiful of all subtle energy practices. It enables you to break through deep subconscious blocks, so that your mind, body, and soul can act together as one. As a path to personal freedom and awareness, it has been said that this practice can bring success to every area of your life.

White Tantric Yoga® (WTY) is a day of six to eight meditations practiced with a partner. You sit facing your partner and follow instructions given on DVD by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan, and repeated by the course facilitator. Every course is facilitated in person by a representative of the Mahan Tantric.

Each WTY course consists of between six and eight kriyas. A WTY kriya is a meditation incorporating a yoga posture, mudra (hand position), eye focus (dristi) and mental focus. Sometimes the mediations are accompanied by music. The meditations vary in length from 11 to 31 to 62 minutes. There are ample breaks in between each meditation.

WHAT TO EXPECT
There are no prerequisites for participating in White Tantric Yoga®. Beginners will tune into their internal energies and enjoy a deep and sometimes challenging meditative experience. More advanced meditators will deepen their experience and make new inroads to their spiritual awareness.

The mere act of registering for a White Tantric Course sends an intention--a message to the universe--that you’re looking for a change and that you want to cleanse yourself. Some people have very specific intentions for White Tantric Yoga®. They might have an intention of getting rid of “X,” to heal “Y” or to understand “Z.” In the alternative, if you have an unpleasant memory, you can bring that thought and find relief at White Tantric Yoga—you don’t have to go through it over and over again.

WHAT TO WEAR
Wear loose fitting and comfortable white or light-colored clothing. White combines all the colors and enhances the magnetic field. Bring a white cotton head covering that completely covers the crown of your head and that will stay on securely (white head coverings are available to purchase at WTY if you forget yours or don’t have one). Wearing a head covering is for your personal growth and upliftment. It also helps keep your positive energy within. Wear shoes that slip on and off easily because White Tantric Yoga® is practiced with the feet uncovered.

Project Your Destiny!

March 6, 2016
10:30 am to Noon
To project your destiny means to commit to your highest and best self. Yogis work to do this in every moment and with every breath. At every moment you can choose to act either in your fate or in your destiny. In fate, you create karma—actions you must complete or resolve. In destiny, you are in flow with the universe, with your spirit and with your best self. Those actions are beyond karma. They are in dharma. Dharmic actions project the ultimate reality of your identity--as a spiritual being!

With your will you have the freedom to make choices to dissolve fate and transform yourself. You can re-write your destiny and live to your fullest potential each and every day. This happens when the soul is unshrouded and clear. At that moment transformation takes place and the magic begins!

Come to Kundalini Yoga in the Loop (KYL) during the months of March and April and receive:
--tools to help you embrace your spiritual destiny
--techniques guaranteed to bring tremendous change to your destiny and
--opportunities to use meditation, reflection and yoga to align you with dharma.

Healing Power of Triple Gong & Mantra

To Clear Grief and Karma

Friday - March 4
6:30 to 8 pm

with Shakta, Hari Dev, and Tej Karam
Bring a friend and join us for Friday night’s ‘Healing Power of Gong and Mantra!’ For March we’ve chosen a mantra meditation specifically designed to clear grief and karma from seven generations before and after you!

The mantra—Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Jio—means ‘great beyond wisdom is His Infinite Wisdom.’ It is a mantra of ecstasy. It can soothe the wounds of life with the Infinite bliss it induces.

As always, we begin every ‘Healing Power of Triple Gong & Mantra’ session with light Kundalini Yoga to prepare the body for what’s to come (the yoga is appropriate for all levels). Then we move into deep relaxation with not one, not two, but three beautiful Paiste gongs! Your mind will have no defense to the gong after 90 seconds!

After the gong we use sound (mantra) to remind us that the entire universe was built on sound, on vibration. And, as we vibrate a particular combination of sounds, we are able to tune into a different level of intelligence, or, consciousness.

So, click here to pre-register and join us for the deep vibrational healing of triple gong and mantra on Friday, March 4.

Breathwalk Comes to Chicago

Breathwalk Training in Chicago

Personal Intensive - May 14 & 15

Instructor Training - July 16 & 17

Brochure
Yogi Bhajan once called Breathwalk, ‘the ultimate fitness program for everyone in the Aquarian Age.’  Breathwalk combines specific patterns of conscious breathing synchronized with your walking steps and enhanced with meditative, directed attention. Breathwalk is about feeling great and ensuring personal wellness. Breathwalk is also about the sense of connection we need to our self, each other and life.

The Personal Intensive, Weekend #1, is specifically designed to rejuvenate you! You’ll learn to synchronize your breath with your footsteps while mentally focusing on primal sounds. We move through several different Breathwalks this weekend to provide stress relief, mental clarity, mood control and anxiety reduction... guaranteed!

The Instructor Training, Weekend #2 builds upon the first weekend. We focus on understanding the application of all 20 Breathwalk programs, working with diverse populations and learning the skills of teaching Breathwalk to others. For those taking Weekend #2, written and experiential homework is assigned for completion between Weekend #1 and #2.

Who Can Breathwalk?  Anyone who loves to walk may Breathwalk! There are no pre-requisites to taking Breathwalk. You do not need to be a yoga teacher. You do not need to be a fitness instructor. Although, many yoga teachers and fitness instructors love sharing Breathwalk with their students, clients, friends & family.

If you love to walk, you will love Breathwalking with Shakta! Space is limited. Pre-registration is required. Sign Up for one or both weekends here.
Level 2 Teacher Training
Life Cycles & Life Styles

Level 2 Course with
Hari Simran Singh, D.C. and Shakta Kaur

Two 3-Day Weekends
Sept. 30, Oct. 1, Oct. 2
and Oct. 28-29-30
Join us for this unique 6-day course (one of five Level 2 modules) and learn about yourself and your relationship to the 7-year cycle of consciousness, the 11-year cycle of intelligence and the 18-year cycle of energy.

In this course you will:
-Cultivate promoting habits that are in balance with the natural stages and rhythms of your life.
-Invite success by defining your purpose for yourself rather than having it defined for you by fate.
-Practice a powerful form of re-birthing so that your true character can be reflected and projected.
-Learn to steward your sexuality to keep it potent and vital over your life span.
-Become aware of how to live and die consciously.
-Continually clear your subconscious so that you can act intentionally with grace and purpose.

Each day we study with the Master, Yogi Bhajan, in a DVD class with meditation. We work both individually and in groups exploring key concepts and ideas. In addition, we experience kriyas and meditation as well as other processes to put aside the constant whir of our life for the stillness and intuitive sensitivity of our consciousness.*

Click Here for more details.
*This is a 60-hour course. Fifty hours are spent in the classroom with 12 hours of home study to be completed 90 days after the course concludes.
Moon Watch
CURRENT MOON

Full Moon - February 22

New Moon - March 8

11 Days After - March 19

(Above Dates Adjusted for Central Time Zone)
New Moon
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."

Waxing Moon
... 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 New Moon
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.

Full Moon
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.)

Waning Moon
... 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.

A Thought From Yogi Bhajan
"
It is my personal belief that there are certain souls which have to study from certain other souls. They have earned that destiny. The contact of the psycho-magnetic field is already arranged. Once in a life, each soul must come across the orbit of that soul from whom he has the opportunity to learn.
