What to expect

“A spiritual energy or life force located at the base of the spine”

Kundalini yoga is a unique, stress-relieving practice, described as a sleeping, dormant potential force in the human organism. A component of the “subtle body”, the Kundalini practice is deemed to awaken the energy and consciousness, coiled in the root chakra at the base of your spine, and ascend to the 7th, enlightened crown chakra...

Chakra? Enlightened? .. what?

If you’re new to Kundalini, or yoga in general, no worries! In layman’s terms, Kundalini is a spiritual practice as much as it is physical, and it is a cherished option from beginners to advanced yogis alike. So, if this is your first time here, you’re in the right place! And, if you’re a returning, die-hard practitioner, welcome back.

Let’s start with the basics. In a typical Kundalini class, there are three parts:

  • An opening chant, or “tuning in”
  • A “kriya”, which is a sequence of postures paired with breathing techniques, and a brief warm-up for your spine
  • A closing meditation with the sound of gong or song

Different kriyas use different breaths, and the most popular breathing technique is “Breath of Fire”. With sealed lips, you take short, quick breathes, in and out of the nose, at the rate of about two to three breathes per second (yes, a bit like a dog panting…). As you breathe, air is expelled in powerful spurts, engaging your core, as well as reducing stress, boosting brain function and improving respiratory health.

Chanting and singing are major components of Kundalini, and while there are endless mantras and songs, most classes start with Adits Mantra, which means - “I bow to the subtle divine wisdom, the divine teacher within.” Another common chant is Sat Nam, which means - “I am truth.”

Kundalini classes are meditation-heavy. Each set has different poses that involve movement, breathing techniques, mindfulness and a mantra. Between postures, you have a minute or two to relax, reflect, focus inward, and after the entire set, relaxation is followed by meditation, and a closing mantra to take with you.

According to research, Kundalini yoga can impact cognitive function, boosting both concentration and memory, and the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention foundation even recommended a Kundalini kriya for improvement of memory retention. It is no surprise the practice’s seen a meteoric rise, and we’re here for it!

One last question… why do the Kundalini yogis where white? The color white is thought to ward off negative energy and extend your own aura. You do not have to wear head-to-toe white, but you’ll see it’s quite common! Teachers often wear a white head covering, such as a hat, scarf or turban to contain the energy in the body.

So… what do you think? Kundalini can be a bit odd at first, we know. But, we love it. Given a chance, we think you will, too.

This studio is my happy place. All the colors and the squishy floors make the experience unique. Highly recommend the Yoga & Somatics class with Anna K. It has been the absolute best way to start my week regulated and ready to go!

5 star rating Sara M. 5 star review for

I absolutely love all the classes I have been to at this studio. I really appreciate the wide variety of teachers and classes that are offered here. Everything from improve classes to yoga classes to dance parties! The one critique I might offer would be to schedule the classes with 15-30 minutes in between. It was a little difficult to get classes started on time. Overall wonderful experience and will definitely be back! ❤️

I’ve been going to flowmagin for about 3 months now and I love it. They offer a variety of different classes with really knowledgeable instructors. The space is really cool and efficient. I love that they don’t have a minimum count for a class. I’ve gone to multiple sessions where it’s just been me and the instructor and really appreciate it. My favorite sessions have been the sound bath sessions. I book through class pass and rarely use any other yoga studio to practice. Love it here!

Make sure to check out their full schedule! Flowmagin offers a variety of classes (not just yoga), so there’s something for everyone. So far I’ve tried out a sound healing meditation, candlelit yin yoga, and the partner yoga/Thai massage class. I enjoyed all of them. The instructors are welcoming and very passionate about what they teach. Cool fact that I didn’t realize until recently: Flow Yoga studios (various locations), 3rd Eye, Body Collective, and Flowmagin are all sister studios. So be sure to check out their other studios in town too since each type of studio has their own unique vibe!

5 star rating The Wave Silent D. 5 star review for

I have done some breathwork and movement classes at flowmagin the past couple months. Everyone is super welcoming from the staff to the patrons. I haven't done classes like this before, but I would highly recommend this place to beginners. I'm really glad I stumbled upon this studio. It has a great community, and the design of the inside is very quirky and fun. :D

The breathwork classes run here by Derek and Sam are absolutely amazing, so much healing happens in the states they are bringing us to where trauma can just float up and release by pumping enough oxygen to speed up the mental processing of new information relating to memories altered by over recall over time. Real healers too Monday 6 breathwork 7 ecstatic movement 8:30 erotic movement Nice set of classes after breath work to ground in the healing Highly recommend
