Kundalini Yoga for Equanimity with Sarah Olin

Saturday 12/10 2-4:30pm

Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

We live in a very fast-paced world. A lot of our time and energy is spent on getting to the bottom of endless to-do lists and trying to keep up with family, relationships and career. Now more than ever, we need to develop our inner strength and resolve so that we can ride the waves of life—instead of getting knocked down by the tides!
Kundalini Yoga is a powerful form of yoga that combines breath work, asanas, mantra and meditation to elicit fast and powerful effects both physically and spiritually.

We will practice a dynamic yoga set in which we will practice training the body and mind to ride the tide of life. We will meditate to strengthen the neutral mind, invoking peace and balance.

Sarah Olin, PCC has been teaching Kundalini Yoga since 2006 in NYC and relocated to Charlotte in 2013. While in NYC, Sarah founded Relax Already, a company that brings yoga and meditation to the workplace. Sarah has an extremely down-to-earth approach to teaching yoga and meditation and is thrilled to be sharing Kundalini Yoga with Charlotte. Sarah is a life coach, teacher and mama.
