Kundalini Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sosie Sagherian

Sosie has practiced Kundalini Yoga for 17 years and has been teaching as a certified KRI instructor since 2008. She discovered Kundalini Yoga in Boston. As a new mother, sleep deprived and a bit stressed out; she found the practice to have immediate benefits. She says, "I never looked back and rarely missed a class. After being a student and sitting in front of some of the best teachers, including the master of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan—I realized my path was to teach—and I pursued my certification."

Kelly Callahan Black

Kelly Callahan Black grew up playing competitive sports locally in Moraga, California. Her ongoing passion for yoga and Pilates has taught her that physical fitness, strength and endurance can come from exercise that is not competitive or negatively created. Positive conscious movement at all levels is harmonious for more than just the body.
 
Kelly holds an MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio/The New School in NYC and is a gifted singer-songwriter. She has taught yoga, Pilates and the healing arts for the past 13 years. She did her advanced Pilates training through Balanced Body University with renowned Pilates innovator Elizabeth Larkam, and at the ABsolute Center in Lafayette.
 

Kelly brings warmth, love and humor to her teaching with a strong emphasis on building community. She instructs both private and group Pilates sessions, prenatal Pilates, mat Pilates and Kundalini Yoga. Kelly owns and operates Indigo together with her husband, Eric Black.

Eric Black

Indigo Co-Owner Eric Black had the good fortune to be introduced to Pilates in 1992 at the now disbanded Portland Pilates Center, the first of its kind in the Northwest. Eric credits the rhythmic movements and breathing of Pilates for leading him to yoga and meditation. A musician and actor as well, he graduated from The Juilliard School in New York City, where he studied intensively for four years. At Juilliard, his training incorporated many styles of movement along with extensive work in the Alexander Technique, a mind-body release technique that continues to influence his approach to Pilates and the arts.
 

Eric has taught Kundalini Yoga since 2001 and Pilates since 2002. Over the years, he has experienced many styles of Pilates; most recently studying with Elizabeth Larkam through Balanced Body University. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, Eric uses Pilates as a highly individualized, holistic training tool, even in a group environment. His students grow tremendously—not only in strength, flexibility and balance—but in kinesthetic awareness, confidence and freedom of movement.

With 8 classes per week, Indigo is proud to offer more Kundalini Yoga than any other studio in the East Bay! Transformative, healing, life changing, a total body workout... these are some of the words used to describe this practice.
 
The beauty of it is that whoever you are, whatever your physical condition, whatever challenges you face, Kundalini Yoga can help you to heal and overcome them. It works through a synergistic blend of physical postures for strength, flexibility, glandular and nervous system balance; breathing practices that calm and focus the mind, relieving stress and anxiety; and mantra work that has the power to give you an experience of your expanded potential as a human being.
 
Whether you're a seasoned Yogi or brand new, Kundalini Yoga is an adaptable system for all levels; one that will not only take you to your physical edge, but help you become your personal best in life.
