Nirinjan Kaur has undertaken an ambitious goal of merging the sacred mantras and smoky vocals she is most loved for with the master musicianship of Matthew Schoening’s indelible cello. This duo has co-written melodies for mantras and shabds from the Sikh and Kundalini Yoga traditions, taking the music to a profound depth of experience. Both musicians have been trained from childhood in their art: Nirinjan in classical Indian vocals, and the yogic techniques of sacred chant, Matthew on the cello, which he has transformed with his signature use of live looping. In this duos live performances, and in their new album together, “From Within”, you are transported to a place of complete stillness where you can experience the mystery and wisdom held within each musical note and each mystical mantra.
It’s an exciting time at Karma Yoga. We have been a cornerstone of the metro Detroit yoga community for 11 years, with long-time and beginning yogis alike finding a home within our walls. We are the premier studio in southeast Michigan offering mind-body-spirit alignment, with a truly spiritual focus that comes from deep in the yogic tradition.
Now, Karma Yoga is becoming bigger, brighter, and farther-reaching. In September of 2014, we acquired a studio in the Bankers Hill neighborhood of San Diego, California. Formerly Shuniya Yoga, Karma Yoga San Diego is a stunning intimate studio offering the best Kundalini yoga in southern California, with a variety of other yoga traditions on the regular class schedule, in workshops, and more. Our community in San Diego is cozy and connected; join us for our weekly Sunday practice and potluck!
And there is even more expansion on the horizon. In January of 2015, we will open Karma Yoga’s third studio, in West Bloomfield, Michigan. This will be our largest location, offering an exquisite variety of yoga from the Kundalini, Vinyasa, Hatha, Anusara, and other traditions!
At all of our locations, you can choose from early morning spiritual practice known as sadhana, a menu of invigorating and inspiring classes every day and every evening, and special workshops and one-of-a-kind programs. We specialize in pairing sacred sound current with movement, as evidenced in our frequent concerts featuring yoga musicians and paired with workshops that include live music.
Find everything you need and desire for your yoga practice within the Karma Yoga family of studios! Our team of experienced teachers and staff create a nurturing sanctuary for our students, who work the physical body while opening to the possibilities for spirit, mind and overall well-being.
What makes Karma Yoga unique is our focus on the spiritual, philosophical and structural detail behind the poses we experience on our mats. Karma is home to all aspects of yoga, coordinated seamlessly for a flow of movement, meditation, devotion, breath and study. You’ll find all the limbs of yoga practiced here. We encourage all of our teachers to do what they do best, offering a variety of perspectives and styles for our students’ benefit and enjoyment.
Karma Yoga is a conscious community for anyone interested in expanding their possibilities – from the youngest among us (prenatal yoga!) to those with limitations (healing yoga!). Everyone is welcome, all the time. We consider yoga to be the path toward becoming a light leader in your work, your relationships, and your community.
