Heal Your Vital Essence - 5 Week Kundalini Yoga Journey
Kundalini Yoga and Meditation is a rich, diverse and integrative practice. Weaving the elements of movement/asana + breath + mudra + mantra/sound/vocal vibration + rhythm + meditation. It invigorates and enlivens the flow of intelligence, wisdom and life force throughout your entire being. A Kundalini class is a revitalising practice for your body, mind, emotions, energy and soul.
Winter is the time to build and restore. Just as nature draws inward to rest and renew, so too should we. Our bodies respond to cold weather by drawing our inner fire, agni, deep inside to protect the vital organs.
Soma (nectar) refers to Lunar energy, otherwise known as cosmic plasma. It is the subtlest form of matter and makes up the essence of OJAS, an essential energy responsible for vitality, health and wellness.
Ojas is the synonym for immunity in Ayurveda and Yoga and is often poetically described as the honey / nectar / invisible essence of the body. It is a sweet ‘honey like’ essence that flows through our bodily tissues and is responsible for the strength and vitality of our digestive, nervous and endocrine systems. It is formed by the proper nourishment of all of our bodily tissues & cells as it is the final product of digestion— digestion of food & experience.
We are believed, in a metaphoric way, to be born with 8 golden drops (or bindus) of Ojas, these drops can be depleted over time and the depletion of our Ojas is believed to be what causes ageing, weakening, lack of vibrancy, lustre, sensuality and love within the body & life.
It’s also sometimes called our kundalini energy, the light and energetic force of the universe and Spirit lying within us at the base of our spines. It’s what keeps us calm when shit hits the fan … and what gives us our glow, our energy and what fuels a consistent state of bliss in our daily lives.
Agni is the transformational fire of life. Your digestive fire is strongest and most powerful during this time of year. Avoid complete inactivity. This is the time of year to build strength and stamina without depleting ojas. Perfect for kriyas for digestion and building immunity.
Soma is the cooling elixir that restores us. Enjoy quiet time for introspection and meditation. Make use of the heavy qualities of winter to sit, contemplate and plant the “seeds” of spring. Kundalini meditations to calm the heart and manifest our dreams.
We need both of these energies to feel balanced.
When we connect to the powers of fire and nectar within, we learn how to create an inner space of true self-respect, and through this self-worth, we achieve healthier relationships with those around us. Remember: There can be no true transformation in the outside world, if first we don’t achieve it in the realms within.
No previous experience in yoga or related disciplines is required for you to begin to achieve undeniable benefits from your first class.
