Kundalini yoga is known to bring about a profound sense of personal transformation and joy. Kundalini postures help bring the thinking mind into alignment with the intuitive heart space. Kundalini yoga works with your body to restore hormonal balance. Every lesson can release some magic inside you. It is ‘yoga for everyone’ and your vibration rises. Come and try for yourself.
Where lessons are described as ‘Kundalini warrior class’ you can expect to work on your core; your abdomen muscles. I believe the stomach is our first brain and it is said that ‘we project from our navels’. Warrior classes are 60 minutes. The ‘yoga of victory’ awaits you in a Warrior class.
At the end of each lesson you can relax to the exceptional healing sound of the gong. The gong works on a cellular level, healing whatever needs healing in your body, and post-yoga your body is ready to receive the gong in this special way.
These classes are suitable for all abilities as postures are adapted for ability but this yoga is not suitable for pregnant women.
Yogi Bhajan brought the technology of Kundalini yoga to the West in 1969.
‘Kundalini yoga is simply the uncoiling of yourself to find your potential and your vitality and reach your virtues. There is nothing outside, everything is in you. You are the storehouse of your totality.’
You can expect to be taught a mixture of Pranayama (breath exercises, often to manage stress) mudras, (hand gestures) asana (yoga postures, some you may know, some specific to Kundalini), and a meditation (sometimes this is a meditative chant, or Mantra). This yoga has a gong relaxation at the end of the lesson.

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!
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.
Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.
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!
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
I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.
My advice? Book it now!
I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.
