Aubrey Dea Zinaich will be bringing back Kundalini Yoga to Mid-South in September of 2018.  Aubrey began her practice in Kundalini Yoga 4 years ago when her life became overwhelmed with moments of anxiety, depression and fatigue.  She knew from her first experience with Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness, that she had found her path.  Aubrey’s special interests include the daily morning practice of Sadhana, mantra & sound current and Kundalini & Buddhist meditation.

Aubrey is a Durham Restaurateur & Sommelier.  She enjoys spending time connecting with like-minded people in her community & working toward creating a more tolerant and open environment where all people can come together to have a voice.   She believes that “Happiness is our Birthright” as taught by Yogi Bhajan.

Kundalini Yoga will take place on Thursday mornings from 9am until 10:15am starting on September 6th, 2018. You can check the class schedule here!
