Portal 18 is an online platform for Kundalini Yoga & Meditation and the latest in holistic wellness.
Kundalini practice offers a unique set of exercises that generate and organize energy and deliver you into a greater state of awareness. These exercises, called Kriyas, include meditation, chanting, breathing, and specific yoga poses. The classes work on strengthening your nervous system, balancing your glandular system, purifying the body, and calming the mind. Also within the practice are built-in moments of stillness where we sit quietly and awaken to our Self.
Each month your Portal 18 Online membership gets you:
- 12 new streaming videos of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation classes
- one monthly “Coven Call” where you can join on a group Skype Call to get your questions answered via “What Would Yogi Bhajan Do?” yogic technology. Also by being witnessed, seen, heard, and held accountable for our victories and growth in community so much magic will occur.
- access to a curated astrology report with astro-weather predictions, tips, and some good news for the weeks ahead
- one monthly meditation challenge that builds caliber, clarity, and resiliency
- one video or audio interview with a health & wellness expert on seasonal matters and/or special topics by request
