Carolyn McTaggart - Raj Adesh
Yoga - Meditation - Gong and Massage Therapies
I’m a certified 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 my interests in music, mantra or the gong - and how it helps us elevate our spirit and enrich our lives. My teachings are also inspired by somatic movement practices such as Feldenkrais and Contact Improvisation that help inform new possibilities. I lead regular classes and workshops (currently 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, 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.
What my students say:
“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.” – Dave, 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.” – Erica, Glasgow
Group classes, workshops and one-to-ones by appointment via Zoom. Collaborative and creative projects welcome.

Spring represents new birth, new life, new creations, new perspectives and growth...
"Though your destination is not yet clear. You can trust the promise of this opening; Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning. That is at one with your life's desire." – John O'Donohue
What is the nature of your projection? Your electromagnetic energy field is known as the aura or divine shield. It’s determined by what you vibrate – what you say, create and think. Whatever your mental thoughts are – your projection – that is the colour of your aura. A strong and balanced aura will help protect you from negative energies and expand your radiance and sense of wellbeing.
"Much of the stress and emptiness that haunt us can be traced back to our lack of attention to beauty. Internally, the mind becomes coarse and dull if it remains unvisited by images and thoughts that hold the radiance of beauty."
We’ll tap into these subtle energies using a blend of breathwork, movement, mantra and meditation to open your awareness to new possibilities, full of grace.
