Sound & Sri Lanka Kundi Yoga Fest 2020

Sound the music of the heart and our Second Language

This blog is inspired by Jo Barry and her amazing daughter Jessie Fuller who gave me the book a Well Balanced Child by Sally Goddard Blythe.  She states, if movement is a childs first language then music/sound is a childs second language. It is the rhythm, tone and vibration which deeply communicates with the human brain in such a profound way.

This is one of the reasons that Kundalini Yoga has such a draw in a world of aloneness, social exclusion and disconnection. Coming to a Kundalini yoga class, chanting and singing leaves you feeling so good. It literally increases the production of a pheromone called oxytocin. Also known as the hormone of love. This pheromone increases when women get pregnant, not only to help in labour but it also increases nurturing feelings. This same pheromone increases when we chant and sing during a kundalini yoga class, making you feel cosy, accepted and bonded with your fellow students and teacher.

We will be having a few Mantra chanting sessions at the Sri Lankan Kundalini Yoga Festival 7-9 March 2020. The first day’s theme LOVE on 7 March 2020 will begin by chanting to our soul’s early morning during Sadhana. We will have chanting in most of the classes. But look out for the special mantra classes which really are a tonic for this age of aloneness. On 9 March 2020 Full moon/poya we will have a special mantra class 1.15-2.30pm with Uta and a very special workshop on a mantra which is only chanted on a Full moon with Savitri (Bali) 4-5.30pm. We look forward to seeing you all at our Festival.

Yogic Hacks & GH Retreat – 11 Feb 2020

More yogic hacks & Guava House Retreat

Last weekend we enjoyed a beautiful retreat at Guava House with some amazing students and all learned a lot from each other.  Here is some of what we learnt:

About the Venue

Shaunagh and Ranjan’s amazing Guava House always serves as an inspiration for our Retreats, surrounded by nature, birds, trees and mountains, we immediately started feeling energised by the pranic energy of the natural world.

About the Retreat

The Retreat went through many topics, including what is yoga and why we need to practice Kundalini yoga in the Age of Aquarius. We learnt to understand your breath signature and how this effects your vitality. We sang mantras, studied our life cycles, went into death and rebirth. Including a fun interactive workshop on yogic anatomy. We learnt that if we changed the dominance of our nostril we can control our emotions. Try it when you next feel commotional.

The second morning we climbed Bible Rock in silence chanting SA, TA, NA, MA and mediated to balance the 3 minds as sun rose. Wow!

About the Food

On this retreat not only did we have the amazing Jayanthi cooking up a veggie rice and curry storm but the teachers pitched in to make it the most delicious vegan fare I have eaten. From the Persian nut roast with vegan gravy to the chia chocolate vegan wattalapan. It was all amazing, scrumptious and filling.

The Magic Balm of Breath – Kundalini Yoga 5 Feb 2020 Sri Lanka

Fest flyer 2020

The Magic Balm of Your Breath

Last week we tried out some yogic hacks to try and bullet proof our nervous system. This week we go more deeply into the breath. Understanding more about the emotional, physical and psychological effects that daily pranayama gives.

The quality, quantity and circulation of your physical breath creates the foundation of your health and vitality. In fact most of us breathe very shallowly, using our upper chest and creating tension, tightness and armouring in the chest muscles that lead to weak nerves and a greater susceptibility to stress and illness. Tonie Nooyens our lead trainer in Asia says by regularly practicing pranayama,(the expansion of our breath and vital life force energy) we can heal about 50% of our illnesses and stress. Relaxed, conscious breathing is the key. We also need to reduce the rate of how many cycles of inhale and exhale we take per minute.

This week we will practice these deep pranic healing techniques to leave you feeling vital and refreshed. We have a guest teacher here from London Preetam Kaur, she is doing a conscious rebirthing class on Friday 6-8pm 1500Rs, one not to be missed.
