What is Kundalini Yoga?
It's yoga- but not as you know it! Kundalini Yoga is an uplifting blend of both physical and spiritual practice that incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras. The ultimate goal is to both build physical vitality and increase consciousness making you more in touch with your true self.
Kundalini yoga's gentle nature means that is great for anyone of any age, experience or flexibility. It isn’t just about flexibility of our body, but also flexibility of our mind and everyone's flexibility can improve over time. The exercises and meditations are great for removing blocks, building self esteem and changing the way you think and feel about yourself.
Kundalini yoga therapy incorporates all the therapeutic elements of Kundalini Yoga - exercise, meditation, breath work and mantra and tailors these to address whatever problems - physical, energetic or psychological that you are facing. The benefits of both Kundalini Yoga & Kundalini Yoga Therapy have been proven in numerous studies.
The best way to discover what you can individually gain from Kundalini Yoga is to come along and try it for yourself!
