Kundalini Yoga Classes

1) Kundalini Yoga Kentish Town - Every Wednesday 

Venue: 3 Holmes Road, Kentish Town, NW5 3AA

Time: 7.00 to 8.30pm

Wednesday 6th November

Kundalini Yoga and Chinese Medicine Five Elements
Week 3: EARTH


In week 3 of this 5 part series, the abundance of high summer fades into the oranges and yellows of late summer, as we move from the element of Fire to that of Earth.

The organs and their meridians associated with Earth are the Stomach and Spleen, the organs of nourishment and transformation. A well-balanced Spleen plays a crucial role in transforming nourishment into energy, Qi, and mentally is responsible for clearly pondering on our options and possibilities, and helps us make final decisions. When the Spleen is weak we can feel fatigued and find it hard to think clearly or make decisions - our head can feel 'woolly'. When we have been over-thinking or worrying too much this can weaken our Spleen Qi and we feel exhausted. A classic example of this is found in students working hard for exams, but it is also a common result of many other stressful situations we are subject to in daily life. 

In class we will identify where the Earth meridians are in the body and which yogic exercises are of particular benefit. We will practice a wonderful set, Nabhi Kriya for Prana-Apana Balance to work directly on the Earth element by toning the digestive system and also balancing the mind. 

Each of the classes in this series stands alone, so don't worry if you missed last week. You are welcome to join in at any time.
You will need to bring a yoga mat, cushion and blanket.

Cost: £10 (£7 concessions)
 

2) Joy Yoga Dalston - Ease of Alignment Kundalini Yoga Class Every Friday

Venue: Joy Yoga, 27D Dalston Lane, Dalston E8 3DF

Time: 3.00 to 4.30pm on Fridays

Ease of Alignment Class 
These classes focus on bringing awareness of an easy balanced alignment during yoga practice, learning ways to come into yoga postures with minimum effort and without the undue strain which often creates unhelpful tension. Each week will focus on a specific body region with an extended set of mindful warm ups to open and balance that particular area, followed by a short kriya to put this new postural ease into practice. These classes would be equally suitable for those with a specific area of difficulty as well as those who wish to find greater ease of alignment in their practice of Kundalini Yoga. As a fully experienced Alexander Technique teacher I offer individual ‘hands on’ guidance during the warm up time for those who would like it.
