We have created a way of living at such high speed. Every moment of our days can be filled with demands; jumping from one priority to another, and in doing so we forfeit our rest time, we have no time for reflection. Our leisure time is often stimulating and action filled, and our “net-working” is often for business purposes, or for other reasons and not for the pure joy of being with people we enjoy, love or admire. One of the reasons I teach yoga is to help people slow down. With Kundalini Yoga everyone can learn again to find those moments for themselves; moments when they can turn inwards and reflect. In turn, the time they spend on demands is improved and more effective.
Body Affects the Soul. Soul Affects the Mind.
“Creative action is like this: we can grow either through the meditative way or the physical way. The meditative way will be very polite. It takes a long time and it needs a
lot of discipline and endurance. The physical way is here and now, immediate and effective. What way do you choose?”
A good start to improving quality of life is awareness. So many people are totally unaware of an imbalance in our lives until something goes wrong, either physically or emotionally. So many are striving to be “super”-parents, -employees, -employers, -friends, etc., that they totally ignore their own needs. Also, we have the busy people who take time out for themselves, but don’t slow down at all. My work as a teacher is to introduce time for relaxation and introspection into our daily schedules, bringing balance to life. After a realization that we need it, the next problem many of us encounter is to realize that we deserve it. We tend to be so outwardly focused, spending time on ourselves often brings with it feelings of guilt. Taking time for yourself has to be built into your daily schedule to achieve a balance between tension and relaxation. The spiritual components of Kundalini Yoga help people reconnect with that spiritual aspect of themselves that recognizes that balance is an important component of our human experience.
As a teacher I wish to share the spiritual aspect, releasing guilt from self-care. In addition, Kundalini Yoga encourages sharing and being with others. Many people do not take the time they need to share and learn from others. By becoming a Kundalini Yoga Teacher I help people to recognize the similarities we share. As Yogi Bhajan said “If you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all”. We all need to be reminded of our connection.
Whatever your own personal physical, mental or emotional condition, working with an experienced Kundalini Yoga teacher can start you on a path to improved health and wellness. Yoga is for everyone, not just for those who are already physically fit. Over the years I have worked with people from all walks of life and with all types of physical impediments to bring yoga into their lives.
The combination of physical exercise, breathwork and meditation that is Kundalini Yoga is best experienced rather than explained. I offer personalized, one-on-one Kundalini Yoga training experiences specifically designed for your lifestyle and health requirements.
