Yoga ~ Meditation ~ Sound Therapy ~ Massage ~ Breathwork ~ Qigong

I’m an experienced Kundalini Yoga, hatha, gong and meditation teacher based in Glasgow. I first experienced the richness of Kundalini Yoga technology back in 2015. I welcomed and embraced the deeper connection to mind, body and spirit. It opens you to new sensations – more energy, positive thoughts, flexibility, strength and creative expression.

 

I’m fascinated by the healing qualities of the Naad (the essence of all sound) – whether through music, mantra or the gong - and how it helps us elevate our spirit and enrich our lives. I also find inspiration and freedom in Qigong, Feldenkrais (Awarenes Through Movement) and Contact Improvisation practices that help inform new possibilities. I lead regular classes and workshops (in person and online) suitable for all abilities – from complete beginners to more experienced yogis.

You don’t have to find anything outside of you. The jewels are all in You.

 

I’ll equip you with the practical tools and techniques of Kundalini Yoga, kriya and energy work, which you can use to build strength, vitality and aid relaxation – connecting breath, mantra, movement and meditation to raise your potential, while encouraging safe practice.

Wear loose comfortable clothing. Bring your own mat, bottle of water, a cushion/yoga block, light blanket if needed for comfort. All welcome. No previous experience necessary.

Kundalini Yoga Water Bodies

Is the source of your movement initiated from the effortless flow of fluid through your tissues? Does your internal flow feel restricted due to dryness, stagnation, or forced effort? Our bodies are mostly made up of fluid. Our tissue cells live within the interstitial fluid, our internal sea. Substances are transported through circulatory channels.

 

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that… If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” - Margaret Atwood

 

Join me to explore the mind, emotion, and the physical parts of us responsible for fluid balance and flow in the body - blending breath, movement, mantra and meditation to still the waters within.

Kundalini Yoga and Gong Healing Workshop

Discover Your Greatness Within

We all have hidden greatness, the real us. That indestructible part of us, which is beyond this body and mind, beyond all the boundaries of this material world. We’ve all originated from one source and that was there from the very beginning of time.

 

Join me on a journey to unfurl our true nature. We’ll play with dance, breathwork, mantra, meditation and sound – landing softly and blissfully into being.

 

The gong’s rhythmic overtones impact the body and its meridians and help clear the aura. They penetrate every cell and fibre of the body releasing blocks (energetic and emotional), reducing nervous tension and stress while boosting circulation. The resulting benefits are greater self-awareness and a deeper inner connection.

“I love the combination of chanting, kriyas and meditation, and for me it’s my new yoga drug of choice. Carolyn not only gives fantastic instruction in a kind and gentle way, but she has so much energy and enthusiasm for Kundalini Yoga that it shines through.”

~ David, Glasgow

“Carolyn has a kind, open heart and makes everyone feel welcome – no matter if you’re a beginner or an advanced yogi. It’s great learning yoga with someone who has such a passion and interest in the practice, as I always feel safe and comfortable with her – not to mention fitter, healthier and happier.”
