Expect a fun practice to raise our vibration together!
The kriya contains 2 shaking exercises . This helps us to reset the reflexes and habits in the central nervous system,When we have tension and trauma, the old parts of the brain become stuck in defensive strategies, making us tight and contracted prepared for fight-or-flight or freezing the body.
It works by deliberately activating that involuntary shaking that we’ve all experienced at times of terror, to discharge stress and balance the nervous system – a kind of factory reset, if you like. It’s what all mammals do, except us because we’ve learned to control it. We’ve all seen antelopes escape the jaws of a predator, pick themselves up, have a good shake and then act like it never happened. They’re over it. Dogs shake too to calm themselves. We’re the only species that walks around bottling it all up, preferring to stay "braced against life."
It’s said that ancient yogis did this every morning and shaking has been used by many indigenous peoples for healing. The yogis would get up, jump in the cold river, come back, and shake out their ill thoughts, cleansing on a cellular level every single morning.
Now it is our chance!!
Kundalini yoga is an age old practice that promotes well-being, happiness and spiritual awareness. It combines postures and movement, breathing techniques, mantra and meditation into powerful sets that automatically guide the energies of the body and the mind to a specific result or change of consciousness.
It will help you balance the energy flow in your body to release stress and awaken to your full human potential.
We will end with a deep healing relaxation to he sound of the sacred Gong: a potent ally in this endeavour gifting us with a heavenly feeling of lightness and calmness allowing us to merge with our Infinite Self. Gongs change time and locality. Skillfully played, gongs provide the entry point to recovery, self-recovery, and create a different platform for existence. Healing comes from inside, consciousness changes from our core. It is from a cellular level and from the depths of our mind and soul that we release the chaos and confusion within. As we clear from within we attain balance, clarity and wisdom. This inner alignment creates harmony in the outer world.
Delicious treats and healing teas will be served after to celebrate our renewed self and well being.
