Radiant Body/Kundalini Yoga


This class is taught by:

Praveen Ananth

“There is nothing purer in this world than knowledge of the true self. In due time, this will come to the devoted practitioner of yoga.” - Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4, verse 38

Hailing from Southern India, Praveen is a lifelong student of Sanskrit and Sanatana Dharma philosophy, earnestly seeking to apply its time-tested wisdom to everyday, practical life. He completed his 200-hour Teacher Training with Kia Miller, founder of Radiant Body Yoga (RBY). This intelligent approach combines the technical aspects of Vinyasa postures with breath-focused and mantra-based kriyas (sequenced set of poses) of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Thus able to holistically balance the inward and outward energies of the body and the mind. An engineer and mathematician by trade, with ongoing international corporate experience, Praveen also enjoys cooking, gardening, motorcycling and flying.


Proceeds from all of his classes go towards supporting the homeless in the Bay Area. http://www.bayarearescue.org/

Marianne Auer

Growing up on a wonderful, slightly crazy, organic farm in the South of Germany, still influences her life and her teaching. Marianne's classes focus on breath and alignment to keep our bodies safe, strong and healthy while maintaining a deep connection to the breath and our deepest self. Teaching her students to skillfully use their bodies: sweat, breathe and break boundaries together. She seeks to help them to thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, so they step off the mat feeling balanced and live their life to the fullest, most creative and radiant potential.
 
After completing her 200 hour Yoga teacher training with Yoga Tree in San Francisco she had the honor to study with Jason Crandell for her 500 hour certificate. Going to India where she started studying Radiant Body Yoga with Kia Miller, dived her deeper into the subtler aspects of pranayama, kriya, mantra and meditation.
 
Radiant Body Yoga (RBY) is a holistic approach to yoga, which has its roots in the ancient Kundalini and Tantric traditions. These practices are designed to awaken each practitioner to their higher nature. They offer a potent combination of physical posture, breath work, kriya, meditation, and chanting. They increase strength, build vitality and create mental clarity. Created by Kia Miller, it integrates 3 key elements: the transformational possibilities of Kundalini Yoga; the challenging and technical precision of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga; the power of Prayer, Mantra and Meditation
