If you attend yoga classes regularly and have established your home practice you may want to consider attending a workshop. Workshops at Radiance Yoga can help you step things up a notch by offering tools and experiences beyond those usually included in a typical hour-long class. Our LiveStream or in-person workshops and series can last anything from 75 minutes to a few hours; highlighting a single technique or topic or encompassing several.
Free Class: Balance Your Chakras with Kundalini Yoga with Masuda Mohamadi (LiveStream)
Monday, June 7 – 6:30pm - 7:30pm EST
Chakras are energy centers in the body that relate to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. These energy centers can be balanced, excessive or deficient in energy. The practice of Kundalini Yoga is one way to bring the chakras into balance with breath work, movement, meditation and relaxation.
This class will begin with an overview of the chakras and then we’ll practice a yoga set and meditation to balance and align your chakras so you feel grounded, energized, creative, and focused.
Free Class: Balance the Lower & Higher Triangle with Masuda Mohamadi (LiveStream)
Monday, July 5 – 6:30pm - 7:30pm EST
Chakras are energy centers that relate to your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. The lower triangle consists of the root chakra, the sacral chakra, and the navel chakra. These three energy centers help you manage life in the material world and relate to your health, wealth, desires, emotions, energy, and willpower. The higher triangle consists of the throat chakra, the third-eye chakra, and the crown chakra. These energy centers help you manage the spiritual realm and relate to your ability to communicate, connect with your soul, and cultivate a relationship with the divine.
We will practice a kundalini yoga set and meditation to bring the lower and higher triangles into balance so that you can manage your day-to-day life with ease and joy while staying connected to a higher purpose in life.
All levels welcome.
The Amazing Power of Effective Communication with Kartar Khalsa (LiveStream)
Saturday, June 26 - Sunday’s June 27 – 9:00am - 4:00pm EST
Communication is not what we think, and it is everything. Your ability to reach others, to combine with others, to feel and appreciate others – is your ability to succeed and be thrilled.
Effective speaking is not with words; it is with your presence first, and then with impact, the way you use your body to deliver your words. I can say “I love you” dozens of times and it has almost no impact. Communication is intuitive and should never be directed at the head of another, but towards their heart.
We are not good at listening. We hear a few words of the other and when we come to something we strongly agree or disagree with we’re distracted, no longer listening. If you cannot be still, you cannot be present for another, and if you cannot be present, you cannot love them. Listening is through the skin and the heart.
We tell ourselves stories – of ourselves, of others, of the future, of “the way things are”. Until we can consciously understand our use of stories and consciously create a story of ourselves that resonates at Soul level, we’ll miss.
Effective communication is reading faces, reading eyes, feeling for the heart of the other underneath the words. You’ll learn these things; and more importantly, you’ll practice them over and over.
9:00am-4:00pm each day with a 1 hour break.

Living with a Whole Heart (LiveStream)
Saturday, July 17 – 9:30pm - 12:00pm EST
Using routine phrases like “he made me think”, “that made me feel,” “that did me in,” shows that without awareness of our unconscious inner speech we cast ourselves as small and helpless.
An fMRI shows that in less than a second a person who uses negative language causes a substantial increase in amygdala activity and the release of dozens of stress hormones and neurotransmitters.
Experiments show these chemicals immediately interrupt the normal functioning of the brain, especially those areas that have to do with logic, reason, language processing, and communication.
As long as we remain unaware of our patterns, we describe their continued appearance in our lives as karma or fate. Recognizing and changing this language and thought patterns begin to heal the core wound of unworthiness.
That healing also takes place in the intimacy of the internal processes. This workshop is meant to lead you to an awareness of this opportunity and an experience where some of that healing might take place.
It uses a Kriya called Unloading the Subconscious, a part of the Rebirthing Series taught in 1988 – 1989.
It explores the energy of forgiveness – which happens not from mental manipulation but from relaxation and the broadening of perspective.
