Today I have taken up the reins on our weekly blog while Fiona is away on holiday.
I was pondering on what subject I should write on and while preparing for my classes this week, and practicing the wonderful ‘kriya for regeneration”, I thought I would share with you how a Kundalini yoga class or kriya can make you feel.
I started my first Kundalini Yoga class in Sri Lanka with Fiona more than 10 years ago and was immedietely hooked! I had been doing various other yogas stylesnover the years, but after one class of Kundalini Yoga I felt so energisied and alive. What is this feeling? It is a feeling of vitality! After stimulating this feeling of vitality we begin to experience states of awareness and connectedness to the self and the universe. This cannot be done through the mind alone.
For a healthy body and the elimination of tension and disease, we must exercise every part of the body, strenthening the immune and nervous systems. These asanas (exercises) will help you to feel grounded and centered. We often spend a lot of time thinking and wanting to make changes in our lives and want to feel less stressed and overwhealmed. Unfortunately just thinking about it won’t really do the trick. Kundalini yoga is one way of taking us out of our mental chatter! In a class we practice physical exercises which takes you out of your mind, so that your mental balance is one pointed, clear and peaceful. During or after a class things may become clear, you will know what your “soul priorities” in your life are, and you will begin to set clear and uncluttered goals, establish priorities and perimeters and eliminate unproductive activiity and reserve time and space for ONESELF.

“Learn To Be Happy Being You”
Being ourselves and being happy with exactly who we are in every way can be one of our greatest challenges in life. During this retreat we will embark on the fabulous journey of self discovery and use the power of Kundalini Yoga to help you become more YOU!
“You must dive deep into the core of your I-AM-NESS. Your life must be a challenge and that challenge must come from the very heart of you. You must know who you are and you must submit to your essence”.
“Make yourself so happy so that when others look at you they become happy too” ― Yogi Bhajan
