Néijīng and Kundalini Yoga Class: Exploring Breath, Movement, and Classical Chinese Concepts

Join us for an evening of Kundalini Yoga & a discussion of the principles behind the healing power of breath and movement as elucidated by the mother text of Acupuncture, the HuángDìNèiJīng 黃帝內經.

The Kundalini Yoga class will focus on bringing movement and breath to the entire spine. This will be followed by a meditation on the heart using mantra and sound. Afterwards, there will be a discussion of breath and movement and its significance in the role of personal disease and divisive societal ideologies using deeper concepts taught by the Néjīng.

This class will be led by Kundalini yoga teacher, Amy Galle, and Chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist, Peter Galle.

About Amy Galle, KYT

I am a student, practitioner, and teacher of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. I was trained at Golden Bridge, Santa Monica, by Gurmukh and Guru Shabad. Mantra & pranayam are two attributes from Kundalini Yoga that inspire my practice most. This practice has given me passion to understand myself thoroughly. In Kundalini Yoga, we work with specific postures (Asana), sound current (Mantra), breath pattern (Pranayam), and meditation as a way to engage in self awareness. When movement, sound current, breath, and mediation come together this is referred to as a 'Kriya'. Every Kundalini Yoga class consists of a complete Kriya.

In today’s world there are many situations, images, objects, and substances that can distract us from our inner compass, our inner knowing and truth. Usually these situations & things are temporary and don’t offer a person lasting support. I’ve found along with many other practitioners & teachers that when we connect to our body through Kundalini Yoga a relationship with our inner truth begins to develop. We call this Sat (truth) Nam (identity). Connecting to my inner truth has given me profound support & deep confidence and has encouraged me to live with integrity.

My primary focus is treating illnesses that are medically complex, chronic, and resistant to standard care.

In order to achieve this I continually engage in advanced clinical training in the mother text of Acupuncture, the HuángDìNèiJīng 黃帝內經, with world renowned scholar and clinician, Edward Neal, MD.

I am dedicated first and foremost to patient health and care. Everything I do is guided by this principle. My current work is constructing clinical tools for Neijing practitioners.
