Growing from the Roots – Strength & Stability with Suzi Wood

Saturday 27th July 14:00 – 16:00 £30/25

A workshop that looks at building strength from the bottom up!

Our whole body is working in order for us just to stand…

From there onwards all movement and postures require different areas of the body to activate in different ways allowing us freedom and expression…

This will be a dynamic practice focusing on strength exercises and how this can develop the body but also empower us on a deeper level.

We will also look at how a strength-focused practice links us to the yogic path.

Prepare to work hard and get sweaty!

Kundalini Yoga Workshops with Dmitriy Borodkin

14:00 – 16:00     £30 (early bird £25)

August 20th, September 17th, October 22nd, November 19th and December 17th

Take shelter from the demands and struggles of everyday life and rejuvenate both your body and mind with an afternoon of nourishing asana and meditation practice. Within 2 hours you will go through all stages of Kundalini yoga routine: tuning-in with the Adi Mantra, pranayam or warm-up, kriya sets, relaxation and meditation.

This practice will offer you the opportunity to delve deeper within, to find comfort and acceptance in simply Being as opposed to the ‘default mode’ of having to do and achieve. A practice of cultivating inner peace and light to de-clutter your mental, emotional and physical space, leaving you with a sense of blissful serenity and helping you to restore clarity and balance. This workshop is a wonderful gateway to a Meditation practice, allowing you to slow down and take time to find stillness in the present moment.

Kundalini yoga is a powerful practice that strengthens the nervous system, balances the glandular system and promotes the energy circulation within the body. Regular practice supports health and vitality, physical and mental strength as well as emotional wellbeing.

Dmitriy is a qualified Kundalini Yoga Teacher with Amrit Nam Sarovar Kundalini Yoga School. He is an active member of the London Kundalini community and has established one of the London’s Sadhana in Bermondsey. His path to Kundalini Yoga started with Bikram Hot Yoga, but with time he sought a more profound and spiritual practice. Having himself experienced the crazy corporate lifestyle and burnt out syndrome, Dmitriy’s classes are aimed at achieving harmony and balance and building both physical and spiritual strengths.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is considered the most comprehensive of yoga traditions, combining meditation, mantra, physical exercises and breathing techniques; it is a Raj Yog, encompassing the eight limbs of yoga into a singular practice of excellence and ecstasy. “Kundalini” literally means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved.” This poetic metaphor alludes to the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each of us, and enables us to merge with – or “yoke” – the universal Self. Fusing individual and universal consciousness creates a divine union, called “yoga.” The Upanishads, dating back to the fifth century B.C., describe the kundalini, although the oral tradition reaches back even further into history. For thousands of years, this sacred science and technology was veiled in secrecy, passed along verbally from master to chosen disciple.

How do you describe Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is also known as the Yoga of Awareness; its focus is on self-awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness. The technology of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a science of the mind and body, to elevate the spirit, which has no boundaries, no discrimination. Therefore it is for everyone, universal and nondenominational.

In the ancient tradition that is yoga, Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a householder path; that is, it has always been practiced by those with families and jobs as opposed to a renunciate’s path of celibacy and removal from society, which was the usual path of a yogi.

Yoga for Stress and Anxiety with Rebecca Bieraugel on Sunday 3rd September 14:00-17:00

 

Yoga for Stress and Anxiety with Becky Bieraugel:

Tuesday 1st August 13:15-15:15 £40

Life can be hard. We are often struggling to keep up with high expectations of ourselves,
processing a constant train of information coming from all directions at all times of the day! Stress and anxiety levels are rising at a rapid rate. Over time high levels of stress and anxiety can lead to fatigue, insomnia, panic attacks and chronic pain. This strain on the nervous system can result in more serious health conditions such as heart attacks, autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue and potential long term effects of self medication with Alcohol and illegal or prescription drugs.

Research now shows us that practices of Yoga and Mindfulness can be used to great effect in helping us regulate our systems and even change our brain chemistry and reverse health issues.
Join Becky Bieraugel on this Minded Institute inspired Yoga workshop. Following on from the workshop in June we’ll revisit previous learnings and introduce some additional practices including healing mantra and Mindfull walking meditation. (There is no need to have attended the previous workshop, all levels and abilities welcome)
