Prosperity Yoga

Join Mel for a 2-hour Kundalini Yogi workshop and gong meditation to assist you to relax and release fear. In this workshop, we will work on the glands and the organs to move stagnant energy in the liver, which can help to release anger. We will also stimulate the kidneys, which are associated with fear.

All exercises in this Kriya tones the nervous system by using the breath, which alleviates depression, lethargy and helps to build vitality and stamina. The workshop ends with a 30-minute gong meditation to further assist you to relax and release fear.

What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is suitable for all levels and for people who have to cope with the daily challenges and stresses that life throws at us. It is also known the Yoga of Awareness. It is one of the most transformative yoga practices today.

It is based on a set of exercises (kriya) that are designed specifically to target certain areas of your body in order to strengthen them and help them release toxins. It increases oxygen, boosts blood flow, balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, builds intuition and reduces stress-induced toxins such as adrenaline and cortisol.

What does a Kundalini Yoga class involve?
Each class usually involves a short warm up sequence or breathing exercises, followed by a kriya (set), meditation and relaxation. In Kundalini Yoga we combine breath (pranayam), hand positions (mudra), eye-focus, meditation and sound (mantra), body locks, and postures (asana) in a precise and conscious manner.

I'm pregnant, can I do Kundalini Yoga?
Provided your doctor has given you the all-clear to practicing Yoga while pregnant, you can participate in Kundalini Yoga - so long as you are not more than 16 weeks pregnant. Please advise me if you are pregnant (in confidence) so I can modify some of the practice for you.

I’m not flexible/fit etc - can I do Kundalini Yoga?
Yes – you can! Kundalini Yoga is great for beginners, all ages and all levels of flexibility and fitness. Kundalini Yoga is for every person. For every body type, fitness or flexibility level, and adapts to every life challenge and life style.

What is a gong meditation/bath?
The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation.

On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana, our vital life force and improves circulation.

The gong also works deeply on the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. The gong purifies and quietens the mind. It literally cuts through the linear mind and clears the clutter from the subconscious mind to reveal the radiant and authentic self.

It has the capacity to bring us to our neutral mind that is wise and non-judgemental. It helps turn the mind to zero, a state of stillness where innate wisdom can be accessed. Another benefit that comes from the mind stilling, is repair at the DNA and cellular level allowing deep healing to take place.

“The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind - the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” - Yogi Bhajan
