Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini yoga, the yoga of awareness, is often known as the ‘mother of all yogas.’ Yogi Bhajan brought this style of yoga over from India to the West in 1969. The  kundalini  said to be the curl of energy at the base of the spine, which when raised up, allows  pure consciousness to ‘flower’, strengthens our nervous systems, releases stress.

Kundalini yoga is dynamic at times, but we use rest between postures to help you regulate body hormones and brain neurotransmitters. Your thinking mind gradually drops into alignment with the intuitive heart space through the power of asana (posture), pranayama (breath), mudras (hand gestures that channel energy flow) and the magic of chanting short mantras.  This  yoga brings about physical/mental cleansing, release and meditative uplift.

‘We are spiritual beings having a human experience’ said Yogi Bhajan. Come and play with these words and explore spiritual growth in this class. 

Emma’s lesson sets an empowering intention, but each class can stand alone.

Beginners welcome. Any strong postures can be adapted with props to suit your body capability.

Gong relaxation: At the end of each lesson you can relax to the exceptional healing sound of the gong.

Emma does not adapt postures for pregnant ladies, therefore this class will not be suitable for you. Please join Alexandra’s pre-natal class for pregnancy yoga at YSY.

TESTIMONIALS

The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!

Sally

I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.
Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.

Emma & Beth

Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.

Cheryl

I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!

Lynne

To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it
