About the event
Balancing the Sun and Moon energies of the subtle body is an important practice in many spiritual traditions. The sun and moon energies are associated with different aspects of our being, and when they are out of balance, it can lead to physical, mental, and emotional imbalances.
The Sun energy is associated with activity, stimulation, and intensity, while the Moon energy is associated with calmness, receptivity, and relaxation. When these energies are in balance, it can help to stabilize emotions, reduce stress, and promote a sense of inner peace.
Balancing these energies can help to open up the energy centers in the body, allowing for greater awareness through balance of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which can lead to increased mental clarity, focus, and concentration.
Come as you are. In this class we will start by gently moving the body to prepare for the seated practice of Himalayan Kundalini, connecting to the breath to activate the sun and moon energies within the body through the power of Kriya (mantra, breath) then moving into a final resting pose to allow practice to settle fully in the body
What is Himalayan Kundalini:
Himalayan Kundalini is a form of yoga that involves repetitive movements, breathing exercises, mudras and chanting. Its purpose is to awaken the Kundalini energy, otherwise known as Shakti.
The techniques involved in Himalayan Kundalini are called Kriyas. In Sanskrit, ‘Kri’ means action and ‘Ya’ is another name for the Atman (soul), so kriya means action that leads to evolution, expansion and liberation. A kriya is a technique designed to create a specific evolutionary response, waking that Kundalini Shakti up and allowing us to access deeper states of consciousness. Kriyas generate electricity that transforms our energy, releasing bio-memory and creating shifts in our being.
This practice will help cultivate the breath and nourish the body with vitality, expand energy fields, radically shift the mind, and break down barriers that may be holding you back from living life to your fullest potential. Helping to raise your consciousness, and enabling you to live a life full of joy and possibility- this practice meets you where you are now, providing you with a complete and powerful pathway to self-mastery and a radically alive life.
Benefits of a Himalayan Kundalini Practice:
Relieve Stress & Anxiety: Kriyas purify the blood and release old bio-memory from the body, de-stressing our system, relieving anxiety and allowing deep peace to arise within.
Improve Your Memory: Kriyas oxygenate the blood and rejuvenate the brain. The improved circulation benefits the brain cells resulting in less tiredness, a sharper mind and improved memory.
Increase Your Vitality: Kriyas are an elixir for good health. They detoxify, rejuvenate and uplift all aspects of our being – body, mind and soul.
Access Deep Silence: Kriyas take us into deep states of Shunya (silence). As we go beyond the stories of the mind, wisdom rises up.
Increase Your Capacity: As we balance the masculine and the feminine, the ida and the pingala, the solar and the lunar currents, we gain access to more of ourselves. Our capacity increases, our creativity is enhanced and we are much more able to see the way.
Evolve Rapidly: We can activate our Kundalini energy in a short time by practicing kriyas. This speeds up our spiritual growth, putting us on the autobahn of evolution.
