Kundalini Yoga Monthly Class

Kundalini yoga is a blend of Bhakti yoga (the yogic practice of devotion and chanting), Raja yoga (the practice of mediation/mental and physical control) and Shakti yoga, (for the expression of power and energy).

The Sanskrit word kundal means “circular,” and it can be a noun for a coiled snake.This concept was adopted as Kundalinī into Hatha yoga in the 15th century and, by the 16th century, was used in the Yoga Upanishads.

The practice of Kundalini yoga is said to arouse the sleeping Kundalini Shakti from its coiled base through the six chakras that reside along the spine, and through the seventh chakra, or crown. Chakras are wheels, or hubs of energy, along which energy or prana, travels like a superhighway to distribute energy throughout the body.

Nowadays Kundalini yoga is a synthesis of many traditions, and the kriyas and meditations in Kundalini Yoga are designed to raise complete body awareness to prepare the body, nervous system, and mind to handle the energy of Kundalini energy rising. Many of the physical postures are designed to activate the navel, spine, and focal points of pressure on meridians (energy points). Through breath work (pranayama) and the application of yogic locks of energy (bandhas), the release, direction, and control of the flow of Kundalini energy is achieved.

Cost is £10 for 2 hours.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect.


In the body, connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.

Slow, deep and long held postures help to stretch connective tissue. The principle of the exercise is to stress the tissue so the body will respond by strengthening it.

Benefits include;


Calming for the mind and body

Reduction of stress and anxiety

Improved flexibility

Improved joint mobility

Balancing for internal organs

Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect.

Slow, deep and long held postures help to stretch connective tissue. The principle of the exercise is to stress the tissue so the body will respond by strengthening it.

Yoga Nidra is a Sanskrit term meaning "yogic sleep". It is a deep relaxation technique and a form of meditation.

​Also called "psychic sleep," it is a state between sleeping and waking. The body becomes completely relaxed and during the session I help you to turn your awareness inward by listening similar to guided meditation.

Yoga nidra involves practicing pratyahara or withdrawal of the senses which helps you develop deep relaxation and expand your self awareness and inner guidance.


Deep, slow stretches followed by Yoga Nidra to set some intentions to move further towards your goals and aspirations - your heart felt desires.
