Kundalini Yoga


This class is taught by:

Donna Wilson Gadue

RYT 200

Donna has been practicing yoga for over 6 years. She is an alumni and former coach for North Country Biggest Loser group. Her first Kundalini Yoga class was part of a winter solstice workshop that she attended and she has been hooked ever since. What really resonated with her from that first Kundalini Yoga class was that she felt very comfortable and accepted. She kept up with her Kundalini Yoga practice and experienced tremendous healing, both physically and spiritually. This experience inspired her to pursue Kundalini Yoga further and she completed her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training program at Trinity Yoga with Ravi Singh. It is Donna’s deep desire to share Kundalini Yoga with others so that they can learn what she learned through the practice…how to love themselves, how to discover the light that they already have inside. That any body can do yoga! Her focus is on body acceptance and building a positive body image for radical self love, health and happiness.

When Donna is not “Rocking her Practice” she loves to spend time with her husband, children and her two dogs.

Lynda Garrand

E-RYT 200, RYT 500, Y4C Certified
 
Lynda has been studying and practicing yoga for more than 14 years. Her journey started with a daily hatha yoga practice, until she found Kundalini Yoga.  She has been a dedicated practitioner of Kundalini Yoga ever since. When life turned her in a different direction in 2009, she decided it was time to pursue her passion and become a certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor. For two years Lynda traveled from Plattsburgh, NY to Memphis, TN one weekend per month, and graduated summa cum laude from Ravi Singh and Ana Brett's 500 Hour Teacher Training Program.  Ravi Singh studied with Yoga Bhajan, who first taught Kundalini Yoga in the U.S., and is an internationally recognized master of Kundalini Yoga.
 
Additionally, Lynda is certified to teach yoga for cancer classes, having completed a 45 hour training program with Tari Prinster, creator of the Y4C program.  She also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Vermont.
 
Lynda also has participated in a seminar with the Veterans Yoga Project and is trauma informed to offer mindful resilience yoga classes to those that suffer from PTSD and related challenges.
 
Lynda is a gifted, knowledgeable, and a very creative teacher.  Her unique gift is to present these ancient and powerful teachings in a way that is relevant to our lives today, in a way that keeps them accessible and enjoyable, yet still profound and transformative.
 
Lynda tailors her classes to suit all types of individuals, regardless of age, ability, body type, flexibility, or physical health.  She enjoys applying her science background and knowledge of the human body to the ancient teachings of yoga.

Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic style of yoga. It consists of active and passive asana-based kriyas (sets of exercises designed in a specific arrangement to work synergistically together), pranayama (breath work), and meditations which target the whole body system (nervous system, glands, mental faculties, chakras) to develop awareness, consciousness and personal strength. Kundalini Yoga doesn’t just work the physical body, but the mind and energetic bodies all at the same time. As a result, many people find it provides results very quickly.
