How Mantra helps us Destress! Kundalini Yoga 6.15, October 1st 6.15pm Prana Lounge.

Sound, mantra and stress relief

Last week was a challenging week where I had to bring all my Kundalini Yoga tools and technology to bare to stop my stress personality getting the better of me. Stress is a condition not an illness and you need a certain amount of stress in your life, as I have said many times.  Last week just before Kundalini yoga Level 1 Teacher Training I let stress build up until I ended up with mouth ulcers and feelings of overwhelm. Fortunately during the beautiful training, with its kriya’s, long Sadhana meditations and workshop, I came to the understanding that sometimes you need your emotions stirred up by someone or something so that they can surface to be released. Otherwise they hide unnoticed under your constant protective negative and positive minds not allowing yourself to feel. I noticed my stress triggers like, trying to please, other people’s opinions and the need to control things, wanting things to be perfect. I used a lot of self awareness watching my stress personality to master the stress and feel steady even when faced with criticism and negativity. To be real in these moments, watch the experience and use mantra to uplift, cut and overcome the worse parts. The physical exercises pressurized my glandular system to create neurochemical changes to deal with my stress, I could also feel after long boughts of chanting mantra how this effected my nervous system by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system to make me feel neutral and relaxed even when things did not go as planned.  As a result our training team was able to respond to the moment, being flexible with the plan we had made. I was inspired by our lead trainer Ronit Vardi, as she tweaked our timetable on a daily and hourly basis to flow with the needs of our students and the reality of time and place.

In fact that is the magic of mantra, the conflicting thoughts and emotions we feel stirred up by, our neutralized when we bring our frequency up to the pure frequency of the Infinite or Universe. Mantra puts our body, mind, etc into the same resonance as the Universe. Mantras calm the disturb thoughts instead to resonate with peace, joy and love.

The mantra chanting I felt really connected me to a different level of consciousness so I could deal with the grueling 14 hour work days, plus evening trainer meetings and prep before bed. Using mantras such as Sat nam or Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo allowed me to access the realm to be in the flow while teaching, to really connect to the teachings and deliver them to the students via knowledge and their electromagnetic fields. As a student of consciousness I challenge you to use your life as an experiment, work out what mantra works for you and practice them daily, in times of need call upon your higher consciousness to guide you.Sat nam Fi x sanasumainsrilanka.wordpress.com read our weekly blogs and brain candy updatesraymond.fiona@gmail.comwww.sanasuma.co.uk0778011984.

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 Café Ceylon, Sri Lanka

About the Venue? 

Café Ceylon and Jasmin cottage are our beautiful beach cottage and wild sea food restaurant by Kabalana Beach. Jasmin cottage is homely, cosy and colourful. Beds are covered with Indian kanta work, brightly coloured bedspreads and lots of art adorn the walls. Café Ceylon has a huge, tropical garden full of ancient coconut palms, organic papaya, passion, bananas and flowers. We slept between the 2 cottages, had our classes looking out on to the luscious garden and ate special veggie food cooked by my master chef husband German Dimaano. After an intense day of classes, we went off to Kabalana beach and got thrown about in the dramatic waves. Some of us went body boarding but it was an intense experience for all as we faced our fears and did it anyway. The star lit night was filled with the sweet sound of singing and playing of spiritual mantras, before an early night for a 5am start.

About the Retreat? 

We began the final week of Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 with our joyful teacher Ronit Vardi who flew to us from Israel just for this course. It was a 7 day intensive. With 5am starts for morning Sadhana, then full 13-14 hour days, filled with teachings that included, the science of Chakras, humanology, the relationship and differences between male and females, Yogic diet, ethics, spiritual path and development, western anatomy, etc. All the student teachers got to a chance to teach in front of their peers, handling the Kriya’s, presentations and teaching asana, pranayama and meditation. The final day ended with a beautiful ceremony where we shared our thoughts for the future and how transformational the course had been for everyone including the teachers.

About the Food? 

German is a brilliant chef, he was artistically creative with our food as well as it being delicious. We started the day with homemade muesli, fresh seasonal fruits and buffalo yoghurt or curd.   Lunch was roast veggie quinoa salad with hummus, roast pumpkin risotto with shavings of parmesan, etc. Dinner was a light, healthy veggie soup and coconut roti.
