Kundalini Yoga with Lokeshvarii

Lokeshvarii’s Kundalini Yoga Class

Kundalini Yoga is often called the ‘Yoga of Awareness.’ Lokeshvarii’s classes follow the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, the pioneer Kundalini Yoga Master who  introduced Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1968. This yoga practice works to awaken the Kundalini energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine so that you can strengthen your inner voice and gain awareness of your True Identity.

The class typically lasts 60-90 minutes beginning with tuning in and warm-up followed by a kriya (set of exercises) with Kundalini music, meditation and then relaxation and tuning out.  Kundalini yoga involves dynamic-repetitive movements and static-strength based exercises. Breath control and mantra (repetition of sound) are utilised to facilitate meditation and deep relaxation.

It is associated with numerous benefits for the body, mind and spirit!

Kundalini Yoga is non-denominational and can be practiced by everyone regardless of age, size, fitness or flexibility.

 

About the Teacher

I’m a Canadian born, KRI Certified Level 1 Kundalini Yoga teacher with KYTA UK who has been in search for many years for something I couldn’t quite put my finger on.  I’d majored in Psychology, pursued vocations in Pharmacology, Cardiology Medical Devices, dabbled in Eastern Religion, practiced various forms of yoga including ashtanga, hatha, and bikram yoga at venues across Calgary, Alberta to supplement a healthy regime of cardio and weights at the gym and salsa social dancing.  But it was only after trying Kundalini for the first time when I moved to Edinburgh in 2011 that I realised this was the holistic approach I was after…pure nourishment for the mind, body, and spirit!

I felt a perceptible stirring of energy… a vibrational quality after doing specific combinations of breath and movement while striving for a one-pointed focus.  I was surprised to attain a state of stillness where taking a breath didn’t even feel necessary!  The style, movements and use of sound were completely foreign to my traditional yoga conditioning… but this felt completely accessible – something I could practice alone or in a group.  It was exactly what I needed whenever I felt stressed, unmotivated, or directionless!   It also taught me good self-discipline -never before had I committed to doing anything for 40 days straight but Kundalini lit a fire in me to get up in the twilight hours to practice sadhana and brave cold morning showers!  I completed my training with the Sahej Academy with Hari Har Ji in 2012 and believe it is a personal tool that anyone can use to empower and re-invigorate one’s attitude and life perspective.  I’m now in the right space to share this life-changing style of yoga so come and join me find out for yourself!

Kundalini yoga develops your Inner Awareness or Consciousness.  It provides  a set of tools that are practically designed for the average person living in today’s highly distractable Digital Age to cope with the stresses of daily life and to rise above it all…

Origin of Kundalini Yoga

 Kundalini Yoga Master, Yogi Bhajan introduced Kundalini to the West in 1968.  Kundalini Yoga originates from the oldest spiritual system, Tantra.  The techniques work the body in specific ways to stimulate the endocrine system and energetic system to benefit the entire body and reach beyond your self-perceived limitations of the mind.

A Typical Kundalini Class

A Kundalini class typically lasts 60-90 minutes and starts with tuning in and warm-up exercises, followed by a kriya (set of exercises) accompanied by music, a 5-10 minute meditation, relaxation and tuning out.  This yoga practice works to awaken the Kundalini energy that resides at the base of spine to harness the creative potential within and gain awareness of your True Self.  It combines a unique combination of dynamic exercises, breathwork, mantra, and meditation. Kriyas are designed to achieve a specific purpose so each class will be unique!  

Benefits

Learning to develop internal stillness offers numerous benefits such as strengthening your internal compass, relating better with yourself and others, and gaining strength & flexibility.  The business is named “Shuniya Yoga” as a reminder that the aim of our practice is to dissolve ourselves to ‘Zero’ and unite with our Infinite Potential.  Nothing has to come from the outside – All is in You! You alone hold the keys to experiencing a profound power to heal and balance your mind, body & spirit.  Happiness and abundance is your birthright!

Creative Music Classes @ Tribe Porty
Apr 20 @ 9:30 am – 11:45 am

Creative Music Class: babies and toddlers

Babies and toddlers love music, puppets, bouncing and tickling games, rhymes, singing books, simple instruments and time with their carer just having fun. In our baby and toddler classes we combine all of these elements to make varied, fun filled sessions, which introduce all of the the basics of music making.

You will learn games and songs to enjoy with your children as they develop a musical awareness and creativity without knowing that they are learning. We use familiar nursery rhymes and songs along with material developed for the particular age groups. These encourage feeling the beat, listening skills, an awareness of musical events such as sound and silence, fast and slow, loud and soft, high and low etc. Songs learned in the appropriate vocal range for the age group encourage singing at pitch, and pop up puppets make our response songs lots of fun.

9:30 am – age 1-2

It is a powerful tool for life and personal transformation. The class will finish with a short Qigong meditation. Meditation and Qi Gong complement each other beautifully.  By combining the two practices, this class offers us the chance to deepen our connection with ourselves, balance your emotions, resolve issues relating to your digestion, immune system, muscles bones and your joints.
