SAT 4th August - 12pm

Duration: 2 hour workshop
Price: £10 per person

These open - level Kundalini yoga sessions will support your body, mind and soul and help you re-boot, so you can navigate this busy life with ease and grace. Kundalini Yoga offers a journey of self-discovery through breathwork, movement, sound and meditation. The practice ranges from vigorous to gentle in each session, through a series of exercises and asanas. The playlist of music ranges from the meditational to the funky! Kundalini is focused on how you feel, not what you like which is why we usually keep our eyes closed and our gaze within during yoga class. There are no hands-on adjustments, as we believe this can interrupt the inner flow. Instruction is verbal and visual. In Kundalini we seek our personal zero, our shuniya. You will feel transformed and connected after every session. Shifts happen - be prepared!
