At Enlighten Yoga, we emphasize the importance of the breath â€“ learning to find a balance between inhales and exhales and to connect breath with movement. Using our breath and movement, we learn to control our thoughts â€“ to slow down. We can use our yoga practice to find harmony and balance in dynamic forces. There is a cycle that exists all around us â€“ the cycle of birth, growth, maintenance and destruction/ruin. A yoga practice teaches us that opportunity lies in everything, including that which seems difficult. It is through ruin/destruction that we find transformation. What is change really, if not the end of something as it transforms to become something else? Our yoga teachers are well versed in guiding clients through a variety of classes with an emphasis on cues for proper alignment and hands on assists. Whether it is Universal Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Power/Hot Yoga, Yoga for Athletes or Yoga Basics, we believe that movement with breath can lead to transformation.

I walk into The Studio. Been waiting for this for several days ever since the weekend went kablooey; the fridge broke down (not the freezer, just the fridgeâ€¦.go figure), we found out the new and improved satellite TV upgrade doesnâ€™t work for our tree-surrounded house, I broke my eyeglasses in a freak encounter with clear glass doors on the bookcase and the cat weighed in at a whopping 23 pounds requiring a diet that I donâ€™t have time to monitor! This week it was the fleas, not the elephants, that kept me on my mindfulness toes.
And then I walk into The Studio, that oasis of sanity containing soft pillows, calming candles, those amazing ginger chews (â€œTake one for the road!â€), my most excellent instructor and lessons to be learned. What makes this place so magical? One hour to be, one hour to reflect, one hour to â€œmind meldâ€ with my teacher, one hour to focus on myself.
One hour to realize that the lessons learned in this quiet space are not isolated to The Studio. The seeds are planted and I take them (and that delish ginger chew) with me wherever I go. â€œAccept and let goâ€ seems like a tall order, but as a matter of fact, I didnâ€™t freak out over the fridge food that spoiled, I was nice to the cable guy, I figured the broken glasses were a â€œmeant to beâ€ since I had a prescription for new lenses, and the cat? He makes a terrific doorstop!

While these practical teachings come from an unbroken lineage of teacher to disciple, dating back over 2500 years to the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, they are highly relevant, proven scientific methods that are easily applied to modern Western society. No prior experience in Meditation or Buddhism is necessary. There are no sign-ups or commitments for our drop-in classes. People from all faiths and all walks of life can benefit greatly by incorporating regular meditation practices into their daily lives. Everyone is welcome! Classes at KMC NC Kadamapa Meditation Center NC is an â€œoasis of peaceâ€ in this busy financial city of Charlotte. People say that when they walk into the meditation room for a class or prayer session they experience a deep sense of inner peace. Each drop-in class begins with a short guided prayer that encapsulates the essence of Buddhist practice. This is followed by a short and simple guided breathing meditation that creates a feeling of inner calm and contentment. Then the teacher gives a short talk on an aspect of Buddhist view that helps to change the way we think about our self and our experiences, and shows how we can solve our human problems. The class concludes with a longer guided meditation based on the content of the teaching to enable the students to its meaning into their hearts. Often students stay after class to ask questions, engage in conversation with other class members and the teacher, or to browse the book and gift store.
