Kundalini Yoga Workshop

Sunday 6th October 11am – 1pm £20 pp

The 2 hours workshop is designed to raise the energy in the body, to open the energetic channels, to strengthen the nervous system, to ground ourselves into the core of our own being and to share some knowledge about the chakras and how the qualities of the elements of nature (earth-water-fire-air) work within us.

Music is always present, embracing and elevating us into a different frequency.

Everybody is welcome, regardless of age, health and level of physical activity. please read on for more in depth details:

We will open and close the workshop singing mantras, like a ceremony or a ritual. In the beginning and for the sake of opening the body, we will dive into the warming up exercises. Then we will move into the Kriya chosen for the day. After the Kriyia we will rest, meditate and sing. During the class we will explore how does the alchemical process that take place when we sublimate the energies towards the spiritual centres work. All of this surrounded by beautiful music that will help center ourselves into the core of our own beings”.
As well, and regarding the explanation of Kundalini Yoga, I feel that people can have access to it everywhere. Although, if you think it is a way to promote the event, here is what I wrote, feel free to delete the paragraph that you feel it is too much.

ABOUT KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient technology and arguably one of the most powerful and fast-acting yoga there is.

This system was brought to a western audience in 1968 when Yogi Bhajan began teaching in California. He founded 3HO (the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organisation) in 1969 to introduce Kundalini yoga to a broader population. Before this, Kundalini yoga was only taught in India and was passed down in the guru-student tradition. Although this type of yoga had not previously been offered to the public, Yogi Bhajan felt that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy its benefits.

Kundalini yoga is a powerful method that combines movement, pranayama, mudras, bandas, meditation, and chanting.

All of this is systematised in a different set of exercises called Kriyas. These Kriyas have different energetic goals but overall all of them aim to raise the energy in the body, strengthen the nervous system, activate and balance the chakras, and help the practitioner to touch, feel and center into the core of his-her own being. 

Many of the physical postures are designed to activate the navel, spine, and different energy centres. Through breath work (pranayama) and the application of yogic locks of energy (bandas), the release, direction, and control of the flow of Kundalini energy is achieved.

All of this is, at the same time, preparation of the body, the nervous system, and the mind to handle the rising of the kundalini energy.

This system can be very strong and powerful and can help people in achieving their maximum creative potential and realise the life purpose.

The 2 hours workshop is designed to raise the energy in the body, to open the energetic channels, to strengthen the nervous system, to ground ourselves into the core of our own being and to share some knowledge about the chakras and how the qualities of the elements of nature (earth-water-fire-air) work within us.

Music is always present, embracing and elevating us into a different frequency.

Everybody is welcome, regardless of age, health and level of physical activity.

Heart Opening Yin Yoga & Ceremonial Cacao

The wonderful Laura McDonald RETURNS for this veritable delight, accompanied by Iren of Raw Bon Bon.

Saturday 6th Oct 1.45 – 4.15pm. Early bird price £22.50 until 14th Sept – following this date £25 pp.

Chocolate and Yoga are two of my favourite things, so I am delighted to be able to combine them in this collaboration with Iren Merdinyan of raw chocolate company Raw Bonbon.

Raw Cacao is a powerful plant medicine that has been used ceremonially for thousands of years across Central and South America. 

Cacao is unlike other plant medicines in that it doesn’t take you on a journey, but gently supports you wherever you’re at. Cacao is a more subtle energy that works with you based on what’s happening inside. Raw cacao is considered a heart opener due to certain active ingredients and people generally describe cacao as a heart-centered energy because it significantly increases blood flow and generates an expansive feeling, often centered around the heart. 

We will start by drinking ceremonial cacao together and learn more about the cacao plant.  This will be followed by a meditation and a heart-opening Yin Yoga sequence. 

Yin Yoga is a slow, meditative form of yoga which consists of mostly seated or lying down postures held for a longer duration (usually 3 to 5 minute holds and occasionally longer) We aim to relax the muscles in order to target the deeper tissues of the body.  This should leave you feeling deeply relaxed. 

We will end the workshop with raw chocolate treats and a grounding meditation
