Kundalini Yoga & Meditation

Kundalini Yoga (KY) is known as the yoga of awareness and is considered by some to be mother of all yogas. It is a complete yoga system including:

- Kriyas (exercises)

- Mantras (chanting)

- Mudras (hand positions)

- Pranayama (breath work)

- Meditation

The beauty of KY is that it allows you, from day one, to practice at your chosen level of intensity without any prior experience or skill. KY is a very powerful tool with some students seeing profound changes after just a few classes.

KY classes draw from a huge range of kriyas, each designed to strengthen a particular aspect of the mind and body. Different kriyas will target the glandular, immune, lymphatic and nervous systems. KY has been shown to be effective in treating depression, anxiety and physical pain. 

Structure of the class:

- at the start of each class we 'tune in' by chanting Adi Mantra and Mangalacharan Mantra (listen to musical versions    here: Itunes & Spotify)

- the class continues with 1hour of exercise (kriya),

- then a deep relaxation and

- finally a meditation.

To close the class we 'tune out'  by chanting 'Sat Nam' three times. Don't worry about learning these before your first class- you will soon pick them up!
