Yoga West is probably THE best place to go to for yoga in Eugene. There are so many different types of yoga and some work you in different ways. Kundalini has the special status of being the unadulterated version that came straight from India thousands of years ago, carried on by Yogis from generation to generation. Physical, Mental, and Spiritual, you leave feeling you expended all you energy but it came back tenfold. You go as hard as you want or as easy as you want, twisting and turning and raising and lowering at your own pace. For an hour and a half you are doing repetitions of aerobic exercises that wake up your entire body.
You breathe in life and feel your whole body tingle. You breathe fire until your abs burn so bad you lay down in corpse pose. You sink into the ground and let every part of your body go. The gong hits and your entire being reverberates at the same frequency as the universe. You are woken up to sing the sunshine song: “Let the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way on…….” After going here for months, I highly recommend you check this place out, no matter how ‘out-there’ it seems. It’s $7 for students and if it’s your first time you get to come back another time for free. If you buy a ten time pass it’s only $6 each time, so much cheaper than acupuncture, massage, chiropractor, medication, doctor visits, therapy, vacations, etc. Check out their website here. You won’t regret it.
