Yoga is a tradition and a science with roots in ancient India that has evolved over centuries to embrace the wisdom of many places and times. Although it means something different to each person, it is rooted in oneness or returning to the Source. Throughout history, it has been split into various 'schools' focusing on different aspects of yoga. Each branch is of the same tree, the tree of the Self. Yoga means union.
Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul. This physical and meditative discipline precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
Kundalini refers to the energy that lays dormant at the base of the spine. Through the practice of yoga, this energy is raised and travels up the spine, through the chakras, creating an overall sense of well being and a heightened sense of awareness. The word Kundalini literally translates as a ‘coiled female serpent’.
Traditionally the techniques of Kundalini were only communicated from Master to disciple and through a long initation process. In 1969 Yogi Bhajan began teaching Kundalini Yoga openly to the public. Yogi Bhajan defines yoga as such: 'Yoga means a discipline of mind and body. There is nothing mysterious about it. Yoga does not explain the meaning of life… It’s aim is to develop a quality of mind which can perceive reality and acquire self knowledge.'
Sadhana means a daily spiritual practice, which can be a meditation, mantra, prayer, (kundalini) yoga practice. The sadhanas I share are based on Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. It is a yogic practice with a holistic approach. It directly increases your awareness and has a beneficial impact on your physical and mental health.
Often travelling to create and direct installations and performances or to teach in art, theatre, performance or music schools, I offer individual classes to students, from beginner to advanced in Kundalini Yoga. This punctual common practice provokes, inspires and strengthens each participant on his-her own path.
Throughout the year I organize Kundalini Yoga Retreats. An adventurous opportunity to combine your self discovery with travelling. Together we experience the impact of a daily Kundalini Yoga practice at beautiful locations worldwide.
