Yoga - Meditation - Gong - Massage 

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 particularly 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 Health 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.

 

I completed my Level 1 Kundalini Yoga teacher training with Sahej Academy and trained with gong master Mehtab Benton. I’m now discovering more jewels through my level 2 modules drawing inspiration from the Kundalini Yoga and dance communities and holistic practitioners worldwide.

Arcline Activation - Kundalini Yoga and Gong Healing

 

Sunday 20 February, 2pm-4pm

at Infinity Yoga Glasgow, 11 Osborne Street, Glasgow G1 5QN

 

The Arcline is the 6th of the 10 Spiritual Bodies - the bright halo of presence that manifests as our intuition, projection and fearless warrior spirit. Through the Arcline we sense the world. When the Arcline is weak it can manifest, for example, as doubts, fears, low mood, lack of clarity and energy that cloud our way forward. An open and strong Arcline, on the other hand, balances the mind, brings harmony, protection and guides a path of freedom into the unknown.

 

During this session you’ll experience a blend of movement, breathwork, sacred sound and meditation so you can step into your true potential with courage and grace – to open new possibilities for the year ahead.

 

All welcome. No previous experience necessary. Not suitable during pregnancy.

Wear loose comfortable clothing. Bring a mat, bottle of water, a small cushion/support and light blanket for comfort.

 

Tickets £25. Limited spaces so book early.

Spring Rebirth - Kundalini Yoga and Gong Healing

 

Sunday 20 March, 2pm-4:30pm

at Infinity Yoga Glasgow, 11 Osborne Street, Glasgow G1 5QN

 

Kundalini Yoga rebirthing kriyas are a deeply cleansing and effective way to awaken your inner strength and vitality, breath by breath. An exact, dynamic combination of postures, movement, breath, sound and meditation.

 

We all have the desire to be happy. Desire can become an endless pursuit when we stand in our own shadow and can’t see the Sun. Simply being, living and enjoying is our most natural gift. Yet we form mental clutter – hidden or subconscious patterns and habits that block our core vitality and truth.

 

The idea of rebirthing is to release the subconscious – the storehouse of misery. In this session you’ll experience the technology of Kundalini Yoga rebirthing with gong to de-clutter the mind and peel off the layers. Heal the pain of the past and overcome the obstacles to true happiness.

 

All welcome. No previous experience necessary. Not suitable during pregnancy. Wear loose comfortable clothing. Bring a mat, bottle of water, a small cushion/support and light blanket for comfort.

Tickets £30. Limited spaces so book early.
