In the week between Christmas and New Year, there will be a class or two of Kundalini Yoga.
The class will last about one hour. Dates to be confirmed.
If you want to attend , contact me to book a place or to reserve a place.
Yoga gives more benefits than I would ever have imagined!
I would not want to give up practising , whether it be Iyengar, Kundalini or Breathing Meditations. My Main training was in Iyengar Yoga and it will always be my core practice when teaching, but when I need something different for myself, I love the immediacy and intensity of Kundalini Yoga. This is a yoga that works with Energy and the effects are immediately felt. In the past I practised Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, when Derek Ireland was my inspiration.
For many years I had a dedicated Iyengar Practice daily. I spent 3 weeks in India being taught by B.K.S Iyengar and his daughter.
My practice has changed as I have got older and I still enjoy regular practice.
I use Yoga according to what I need at the time - this is my freedom.
I teach students who have been attending for over 10 years and I have taught students who were inspired to teach.
Alongside my yoga practice, I have completed the most challenging training ever ! It is The Wim Hof Method - an intense training in breathwork and mental focus.This is not yoga, per se, but was developed by the Dutchman Wim Hof, from his own spiritual practices. In comparison to the WHM, I began to believe that yoga practice is straightforward and easier ! The WHM teaches to overcome emotional blocks, to gain mastery over the mind and control over emotions, by in-the-moment-experience.Both Yoga and WH practices are hugely life-giving and go deep into the physiology of our body.
We become stronger on many levels because both these systems contribute to re-wiring the brain and our thinking.
From my own experiences of yoga classes, workshops, retreats, trainings, I can say unequivocally that it has kept me strong in very,and many, challenging situations.
Iyengar Yoga brings strength, flexibility and emotional stamina.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga brings upper body strength and flexibility through raising the body temperature - similar to Bikram Yoga.
Kundalini Yoga includes physical sequences, meditations and chanting of mantras. It is a system that works at subtle levels of our mind and body by stimulating Energy channels,as well as strengthening the body.
Each system has its life-giving and health-giving benefits despite the differences in approach...the goal is the same...liberation from a cluttered mind, release from tension in the body, a greater balanced of emotions and ultimately, a happier , healthier life.
