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 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.

Heart Connection Sessions - Online and In Studio

Summer is associated with the Fire element - a potent symbol of transformation and purification. The Sun’s fire energy also corresponds to joy and excitement. Joy brings light to the eyes and an animated energy to movement; it opens the heart and promotes connection. Once our hearts are open, our experience of Infinity, our own inner union flowers and bears the fruit of love and compassion. It is from this place of inner balance that we can build relationship and harmony with others.

In these Heart Connection sessions we'll explore a blend of movement, breathwork, mantra and meditation to find joy and peace.

We Are Love - Kundalini Yoga and Gong Healing 

Sunday 3 July 2pm-4pm

Infinity Yoga, 11 Osborne Street, Glasgow G1 5QN

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” - Carl Jung

A calm and open heart is boundless, naturally expansive, without limitation or fear. The heart has its own energy field - a magnetic frequency ready to receive. When we shift out of the head and into our heart, life simply flows. Trust this journey of self-exploration and that you are loved. Opportunities and prosperity come in different forms than you previously imagined. Join this session to connect, breath, move and chant together as One.

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.
