Thursdays 12:30 - 13:30
Kundalini yoga is considered to be the most comprehensive of the yoga traditions. It combines meditation, mantra, physical exercises and breathing techniques to induce heightened awareness.
Classes normally consist of a warm-up, a kriya (set of postures), a relaxation and a meditation. Each kriya will have a particular focus and may consist of anywhere between one and 20 postures. It is the sum total of practising the kriya that allows the effects to be felt, rather than the individual postures.
The use of mantra or 'Naad yoga' is an integral part of Kundalini yoga. This focuses the mind and its vibrations resonate deeply within the body, helping to unblock stored emotion and strengthen the circulation of energy through the body. Naad yoga and the use of primal sound are very efficient at clarifying the mind and optimising the ability to reach a state of meditation.
Each class and meditation will work on many subtle levels in the body. The effects are very powerful and changes can be felt by practicing postures for as little as a few minutes. No previous experience of yoga is required for you to achieve results in your very first class. Work wear can be worn as long as its comfortable and easy to move in.

Having practised yoga for more than 15 years, I have felt the positive effect it’s had on my body and – more importantly – my mind. It was in 2007 that I discovered Kundalini yoga and quickly realised how powerful this practice was. For the first time I realised the connection between the practice of yoga, raised consciousness and heightened awareness. It has unlocked my mind and opened me to a world of self-healing and creative abundance. I continue to feel the transformative effect it has on all aspects of my life.
I completed my Teacher Training Level I (200 hours) and Level II (1001 days in total) with the Amrit Nam Sarovar School in France between 2007 and 2010. In 2013 I completed my conscious pregnancy training, and in 2014 I became a member of the Aquarian Teacher Academy. I now teach in yoga centres, schools and on retreats nationally and internationally alongside running a Level 1 Teacher Training Program here in Devon.
