There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.
Kundalini yoga allows all body shapes and abilities to take up a yoga practice. Kundalini yoga is not yoga that will force you into a perfect shape/posture; it is a hallmark of Kundalini yoga that alignment is not the central focus of the practice. However, Kundalini yoga will give you a strong toned body as a subtle by-product of the asana practice without ever being the ‘focus’ of the class intention. Kundalini yoga postures has postures you’ll find in other yogas, but then some surprise you. We like to say that Kundalini yoga has kriya movement that is ‘the same but very different’ from other yogas like Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Jivamukti. One can only find out this mystery through a class practice when you practice mastery of yourself.
‘I am conscious of this world by means of my body’
What to expect in a Kundalini class
We open and close classes with short mantra chants. We harness the power of intention for our practice, then yoke it to posture and breath for the potent alchemy of experiential change. We work through a kriya that is a complete set of actions designed to purify, uplift, connect to the divine within us. Our movements have set times and this helps make Kundalini yoga accessible for all abilities. You can rest on the mat during any posture time, then take it up again. We know that you will work out what is best for you and we encourage you to build your personal strength over time during attendance at classes.
Through meditation, taught breaths, our movement with our breath, our movement with hand mudra, with the addition of audible or said mantra our class experience is like no other yoga. It works and works on you. During class, and continuing on after. It is rare that a student does not return to savour more and more of this elevating practice that works through the spirit to set your soul free to fly.
This leads to spaciousness, stillness, being and not doing, and finally, into being in your pure Presence, nothing more.
