YOGA

Yoga means union, it is a method for spiritual awakening that raises our awareness, bringing mind, body and spirit/soul into alignment and giving us self-realization or enlightenment. Self-realization is our natural, joyful state of being; it means to live in the present moment and to be a calm loving person who is free from anger, worry and negativity. Enlightenment means the same thing; letting the light in heals our negative mind so we see the light of Spirit which is the same light within all living beings! Self-realization is not about being special, admired or exalted; it’s about being thankful, humble and helping others.

For we are already enlightened, we just don’t realize it!”

As a result of the pressures and imbalances created by our fast, modern lifestyle we become stressed out. Yoga releases body tension and mental stress and balances our energy freeing blocked emotions. It cleanses our internal organs, eliminates toxins from the body and stimulates the endocrine system (our hormones) to delay ageing. In yoga we are advised to live by spiritual disciplines which include non-violence, non-greed, non-steeling and sexual purity-abstaining for a while or being in a spiritually evolving relationship, and to be pure in everything we think, say and do, as well as having a pure diet. These practices remove the impurities and negativities in the mind and show us how to live our lives in a moral, ethical, yogic way so as no harm may come to us or to any other being, leading to compassion for all. Yoga is not serious or competitive, anyone can practice it and many ailments; physical, mental, emotional or spiritual can be alleviated. During a yoga session this is your time to let go of any problems or stress and to feel good, to be present and to be one with your true self! When you finish your practice you feel completely revitalized and rejuvenated which helps you to cope with any challenging situation and to give out more love, peace and compassion. There are also many Shatkarmas that I teach which are yogic detoxing techniques for the whole body.

DYNAMIC HATHA YOGA

Hatha yoga is the yoga of body and breath where we unite the female Yin (Shakti) and the male Yang (Shiva) aspects of ourselves. Deep relaxation is our place of divine truth and it’s important to relax before and after class. The physical postures or asanas exercise the muscles, internal organs and glands, and bend, stretch and balance the body in certain ways to promote fitness, health and a strong youthful body. Prana is Divine Life-Force energy that permeates all living beings giving them consciousness and life, and Pranayama means breathing techniques which encourage free flow of energy throughout our system. Meditation awakens us and unlocks the door of our sixth sense. It disperses stress, increases energy, enhances intelligence and rejuvenates the whole system which enables us to use our full unlimited potential. Meditation means to be present and to silence our mind, open our heart and relax into our true self where we connect with spirit and become one with the love, light and peace within.

ANCIENT TIBETAN POSTURES

I also teach Five Ancient Tibetan Postures which I practice every day and are incredibly youth enhancing. They speed up our chakras which promotes free flow of pranic energy through the system which activates our hormones and they retard the ageing process, rejuvenate our body and give us revitalized energy and exceptional health, vitality and longevity.

 

KUNDALINI KRIYA YOGA

Kundalini Kriya yoga is the sacred science of the self which evolves our consciousness and disperses negative Karma. Kundalini or Shakti energy is our soul potential and a form of intensified prana which lies as light, sound vibrations at the base of our spine. It is awakened by scientific Kriya yoga procedures which raise this energy up the spine piercing each chakra until we experience self-realization. Kundalini Kriya yoga burns toxins in the body and gives one a peaceful mind. It is a form of life-force spinal breathing and the upward fl ow of Prana expands soul consciousness and the downward flow of Apana dissolves negative karma. These breath currents magnetise the spine which becomes like a magnet, pulling up the Kundalini energy where it eventually transforms the mind into divine consciousness and where we realise the body as light and have union with love, with God in Samadhi. Awakening this evolutionary energy is the birth right of every human being on earth. My Sat Guru Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath teaches this powerful science which has been passed down by the Divine Mahavatar Babaji and it must be taught by a true guru or teacher so students can absorb these sacred techniques slowly. I teach this sacred science one on one privately or in small groups and please email me for price of this 4 hour Kundalini workshop.

SURYA YOGA

Surya Yoga is pranic healing with solar power from the sun. This incredible technique flushes toxins from every cell and the body is permeated with life-giving prana which releases stress and anxiety, dissolves physical pain and disease to promote anti-ageing and youthfulness.

FREE-WEIGHTS

Free-weights are a very important part of my wellness course because as we become older our body loses muscle mass and therefore the body does not work correctly and skin becomes lose. I have been practicing my 6 free-weights exercises twice a week for years and my arms and legs are strong, defined and muscular. I have excellent upper body strength, my skin and muscles are tight and firm and I have no cellulite at all! My exercises target arms, shoulders, legs, buttocks and stomach

Peace and Love

Namaste!
