Awaken Your Inner Potential ~ Kundalini Yoga Retreat
Saturday 28 July 2018 & Sunday 29 July 2018
Full Retreat Rate $245
Mid year is the perfect time to awaken and realign your inner potential. In this captivating weekend you will find yourself immersed in nature, opening to karmic wisdom, and channeling the primal forces within.
Kundalini is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning coiled up snake. Through deep meditation and spiritual practice, the kundalini can be awakened and travel up through the body which cleanses and purifies the glandular system, nervous system, and energy centres. The kundalini can move to the top of the head (Sahasrara Chakra) to expand consciousness and help the practitioner achieve self-realisation. The kundalini is considered a powerful energy, and the body and mind must be conditioned to accommodate its movement.
As the weekend continues, so do the invigorating teachings of Kundalini Yoga. Ensure this day is booked within your schedule as Sam guides you through techniques and tools to begin to arouse the kundalini energy.
These tools include:
• Physical postures (kriya)
• Breath work (pranayama)
• Hand gestures (mudra)
• Vibration (mantra)
• Relaxation (Savasana)
• Meditation (Samadhi)
More amazing is that Kundalini awakenings can mimic trauma release from the body, giving you an active sense of restoration and rejuvenation. When people sit with strong emotions that are stored in the body, it allows for their movement and this process can clear the grantis (knots) that are stored in the chakra system. The process can involve heat, anxiety, shakiness and nausea that reflects a strong physical release – this process has been proven to awaken the parasympathetic system and strengthen vagal tone, allowing for timeless peace.
How can Kundalini yoga assist you?
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is an ancient and one of the most powerful styles of yoga. It supports us to become physically, emotionally and mentally resilient by developing a strong nervous system, a healthy glandular and a resilient immune system so that we embrace a life full of confidence.
Kundalini Yoga is for everyone and is one of the most transformative yoga practices today. It is based on a set of exercises that is designed specifically to target certain areas of your body in order to strengthen them and help them release toxins.
Each lot of exercises are referred to as a ‘set’ or a ‘kriya”. First we tune in using a centering technique to call upon our inner guidance. Then we warm up and stretch out our bodies using movement and strong breathing. Each Kundalini yoga class is unique, but each will contain a yoga ‘set’ of postures and exercises that work on specific areas of the body, mind, and spirit.
The word ‘kundalini’ refers to our potential. The practice of kundalini yoga is both a technology and a science for all aspects of human living based on the realisation that our true strength comes from within, Kundalini Yoga deepens and expands our awareness on all levels so that we may awaken our full potential and grace.
A retreat leaves you with an overwhelming sense that you have nurtured your whole being and experienced something special. You do not need to be in perfect physical condition or share any particular belief system. Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association
