What to expect in a Kundalini class

Kundalini yoga is a rarer yoga practice than Hatha or other yogas found locally. If you have felt stuck with other yoga practices you might join a class and find out why so many turn to Kundalini yoga as ‘the mother of all yogas’ and find the inner peace, balance, and uplift that this yoga cultivates.

Kundalini yoga classes use the power of breathwork (increasing in popularity now the pandemic has taught us the importance of our lung health) and are about flowing rhythmic movements, stilling and holding asanas (postures), meditations that are relevant and accessible, and finally, we use the power of the voice when we chant in a group. Our yoga is the same, but very different, there are many magical moments on the mat, the emphasis is upon the journey inward whilst releasing, renewing, and relaxing. No other yoga employs the power of the gong bath for relaxation at the end of class. Kundalini yoga does.

YSY founder and teacher Emma brings extensive Kundalini yoga training experience to YogaSpace Yorkshire to offer classes that uplift, release tension, create hormonal change, raise your vibration and inner joy and cultivate inner peace.

Kundalini yoga allows your thinking mind to gradually drop into alignment with the experiences in your physical body and your intuitive heart space. We use various pranayama (directing your breath), mudras (hand gestures that channel energy flow), and in addition, the magic of chanting short mantras or allowing the mind simply to rest in mantra music whilst you move. If you love music and movement and need to adapt to modern life and all the challenges of the current age, Kundalini yoga is the ‘go-to’ practice that is empowering and life-changing.

Kundalini yoga is not so much about bendy bodies but about bringing ourselves back into the present time – not in pains of the past or fears of our future. Kundalini yoga allows you to crawl inside the landscape of your body, and inhabit every room and space within you,  through movements, mantras, and breath.  A yogi is one who resides in the body with intuitive ease.

The teacher wears white – wear comfy loose clothing, bring a mat, we provide props. Classes are limited to 12 or occasionally 14.

Emma Ropner writes

“I believe there is a connection between how we manage and move our bodies and how this helps manages our ‘minds’. My spiritual number is 5, the number of the teacher, and my life’s mission/purpose is to share the teachings of wellbeing practices like yoga, sound therapy, and the esoteric aspects of human life, with my students. I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our life’s work is to know and love ‘the self’ so that we can connect to that divine power residing within all of us. From this space,- we activate through yogas like Kundalini, all that connects us with the universal creative forces. These are the forces power life’s blessings.  I work with the subtle layers and powers within our human bodies; energy centers called the chakras. My passion is to help you awaken your personal power centers to stay physically strong, mentally resilient, and to remain, or grow, happy.”

Emma trained with KRI-certified yoga schools in London and Portugal (Karam Kriya)  and with Julie Montagu’s London-based Whole Self Yoga School for Vinyasa Mandala Flow. Emma is a fan of the therapeutic side of Kundalini yoga as kundalini yoga provides a student with tools to regulate/have agency over their states of anxiety, addictions, and loss of sense of the self, their navigation through the menopause, and come to peace with past lives, shadow selves, and ancestral karmic load. Her Yin with Mindfulness training with Sarah Lo, becomes seamlessly blended at times, during her classes. The yang during posture effort, the yin experience between postures.

Ema has also trained with James Reeves at Triyoga, who teaches the acclaimed Yoga Nidra IRest method. She has trained with the Yoga for Cancer Specialist, Vicky Fox (Triyoga) to bring this therapeutic form of yoga to YogaSpace Yorkshire to support those in the area. She is a qualified children’s yoga teacher and trained with  StarChild Yoga, an Education for  Peace, certified by KYTA.

She learned her Gong craft from two gong master Gurus; Mehtab Benton from the USA who has taught all over the world. Emma continues to train with Sheila Whittaker who is the lead trainer at the College of Sound Healing. Emma has two gongs, Mercury and Chiron.

Emma holds residential retreats here at YogaSpace Yorkshire in collaboration with visiting guest teachers.
