WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is an ancient Indian spiritual practice. The word yoga means union (the word yoga originated from the Eastern root word in Sanskrit: jugit and the West understand it from the Latin word ‘yoke’). It is the union of the individuals consciousness with the infinite consciousness.
Yoga explores your dimensions, depth, nature and potential as a human being. By practicing yoga, it allows us to have a deeper connection to ourselves whilst bringing harmony to every facet of our lives. There are over 22 different forms of yoga.
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness, where it quickly establishes an aligned relationship between the mind, body and spirit. Once the dormant Shakti energy of awareness is awakened it can allow you to experience your original, harmonious Self.
Kundalini Yoga works on balancing the bodies chakra system, by combining breath work (pranayam), meditation, eye-focus, mudras (hand and finger position) and mantras (using sacred sound currents in Gurmukhi and Sanskrit). I offer regular Kundalini Yoga group classes for adults in Hertfordshire and online via Zoom.
MEDITATION & YOGA NIDRA
Meditation helps to clear and focus the mind, whilst bringing the body back into a relaxed, rejuvenated and mindful state. I truly love how versatile meditation can be; whatever you're feeling, there's a meditation for you.
I currently teach Kundalini Yoga meditations, which incorporate different combinations of mudras, eye-focus, breath work and sometimes mantras, as well as Yoga Nidra techniques. Yoga Nidra (yogic or dynamic sleep) is a guided meditation practice for all abilities and ages, and is a wonderful way to relieve stress.
CHILDREN'S & TEENS YOGA
From as early as 3 years old, children can enjoy the benefits of yoga and have fun with movement. Typically, a children's and teens yoga class incorporates asanas (yoga postures), balance exercises, coordination exercises, motor development games, discussion groups, meditations, mantra and much more.
Teen yoga classes are a fantastic opportunity for teenagers to learn the basics of yoga philosophy and to develop a yogic 'tool kit' to help and support them with lifes ups and downs. Regular teen classes coming soon in Hertfordshire.
I offer 1-2-1 Kundalini Yoga, meditation and gong bath sessions, tailored to support you or to guide you towards reaching your goals - including stress management, increasing vitality or improving sleep and much more.
Or if you find that my current regular class times aren't suitable, booking a 1-2-1 or private group session is a great solution to fitting in a regular yoga practice or gong bath.
