Kundalini Yoga

The Kundalini is said to be the curl of energy at the base of the spine, which when raised up, allows your unique creative, consciousness to flower, ‘a path to enlightenment’ yoga. It is a yoga that strengthens our nervous systems creates better hormonal health (which helps both women and men cope with life’s hormonal phases) and releases stress. Kundalini yoga sprinkles gentle yogic spiritual teachings woven like a golden thread, throughout the practice. Kundalini has strong roots in the Hatha posture tradition and the yoga sutras,  blended to create this very inspirational and absorbing yoga.

If you are interested in growing more aware of yourself and your life, this is yoga to deepen your experiences and understand yourself and your purpose in life.

Beginners are integrated into the class and we build our ability at our own pace. Our asana practice allows your thinking mind to gradually drop into alignment with the experiences in your physical body and your intuitive heart space. We use pranayama (breath), mudras (hand gestures that channel energy flow), and in addition, the magic of chanting short mantras. Gong relaxation: At the end of each lesson you can relax to the exceptional healing sound of the gong.

Happiness is your birthright.

We work towards our highest human and spiritual vibration.

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

Intention + Posture + Breath lead us forward. We work towards our highest human and spiritual vibration

Quantum Physics of the Universe; our personal energy bodies are connected to these universal creative forces. When we harness this energy, magic happens.

Beginners welcome: Kundalini yoga is suitable for all levels of yogis/yoginis, (except pregnant ladies, please join Alexandra’s pre-natal class for pregnancy yoga at YSY) and for those who are new to yoga.  We demonstrate every posture, newcomers are integrated into the class to build their personal body strength at their own pace.

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.”

I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.

I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
