Kundalini yoga derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana. Called by practitioners “the yoga of awareness”, it aims “to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on the compassion and consciousness needed to serve and heal others.”

David Kazmeirzak (Guru Darshan Singh) began his Kundalini Yoga training upon meeting his teacher, Yogi Bhajan and spending time in India.  He then became, for 16 years, the director and Sikh minister of the 3HO Kundalini Ashram in New Orleans.

David conducts our 1:15 Eastern-Themed Service and is available on Mondays and Thursdays for counseling.  He also leads our meditation class as well as does Tarot readings by appointment.  Readings last approximately 1/2 hour and require a $25.00 donation.

According to kundalini yoga tradition, the subtle body is a part of you that you can’t see or touch—it’s where your energy flows, which is why it’s also referred to as the energy body. There are seven key points in the subtle body that are thought to be vortexes of energy, known as chakras. When energy becomes blocked in a chakra, it triggers physical, mental, or emotional imbalances that manifest in symptoms such as anxiety, lethargy, or poor digestion. A well-tuned asana practice can free up energy and stimulate an imbalanced chakra, paving the way for that wonderful internal shift for which yoga is known. With just a little bit of coaching, you can tap into the chakras as a potent way of harnessing and shifting your energy in the direction you want it to go.
