Brandon Hamilton (Raj Bhajan)
Yoga is the relationship that is built between the body, the mind and the breath. Yoga is creating space free from obstacles in your own body to live. Yoga is freedom and release. I am here to help others find this release so that they can comfortable and competently move their bodies through life.
In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive in live by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, and my hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
As a former athlete I love to be active and moving taking my dogs for hikes, in the gym, stretching , reading and of course eating good food. Life's to short so let's live to the fullest, love the hardest and dream big.

Inspired with a calling to serve, one might consider Candyce to be a doula of life's evolving passages. A Doula, coming from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves", is one who offers physical & emotional support via providing nurturing guidance and information to birthing women. In these ever evolving times, experience lends that nurture and support play a vital role from day to day; from the smallest to the greatest of life's rituals. Passionate in her role of serving many women as a doula in the process of childbirth, Candyce
noticing changes in himself that he previously thought impossible. Always having a love for theology and mysticism, he fell in love with both the exoteric and esoteric teachings of the Torah. After studying under a Rabbi and entering the mikveh waters (ritual immersion), he took on the Hebrew version of his birth name.
He felt a strong calling to teach the moment he started practicing Kundalini Yoga on a regular basis and found many parallels between this ancient practice and the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah.
He also has a passion for art and filmmaking. He is a huge animal lover and when he’s not teaching, he’s almost always surrounded by his canine friends.
I am a Level 2 Certified Kundalini Yoga teacher and owner of Kundalini Rising. I was born to two peaceful people who brought me home to live in the beauty of nature. Being surrounded by nature has always been my most beloved and true teacher. Beginning at a young age to immerse in various modalities of healing both know and unknown, Kundalini has been one of the most powerful tools for healing I have experienced. Strengthening the

Realizing the immense benefits of this practice, and eager to deepen her own, practice, Candyce ventured on to complete her KRI certification in Kundalini Yoga; the perfect compliment to her passion for serving. Having been gifted a priceless education, orchestrated by the experience of motherhood, Candyce found herself learning, from her two wonderful daughters, the unique challenges of the changing times that seem to engulf and segregate our coming generations with a growing gap that requires a deeper, stronger sense of self & renewal. Candyce has completed the Yoga for Youth Teacher Training as well as the Dancing Spider (yoga for children) Teacher Training.

Carlee (Kalyani) Cohen-Barr

Bethany was raised in upstate New York in a very religious family. Growing up she had a deep love of God, but always felt something was off with what she was being taught. She had mystical experiences at an early age in which she was shown that “God” was much greater than one holy book or lineage.
At age 19 Bethany started to explore different spiritual paths and teachings. She was disillusioned with the greed of the U.S. and spent large portions of the next decade living in Nicaragua working in orphanages.
At age 27 Bethany was working in NYC as a professional dancer when she was introduced to mystic, yogi and Universal
Kabbalah Master Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, founder of Naam Yoga. This opened her to a whole new world of Truth. Bethany’s insatiable quest for Truth led her study under yogis, shamans, indigenous peoples, and mystics around the world. Yet throughout it all, she was constantly guided back to her own Heart - her own fountain of Truth and Light - that we all have within.
One of her greatest times of transformation occurred through deep suffering - a true Dark Night of the Soul - in an unhealthy marriage. The gift of this challenge was a new level of self-mastery and humble empowerment. Today Bethany leads courses, retreats and classes for women who are seeking to live a more empowered, truth-filled and joyful life. This brings her great joy.

connection with my Soul, with which I practice relating with first, before all else.
No small thing, Kundalini is the force of all of Creation, and it is a profound honor and joy to share it with you. A space exists for all to tap into this sacredness and truth; the energy that allows you to be You.
