Kundalini Yoga consists of simple and effective yogic techniques that can be enjoyed by people of any age or physical ability. Kundalini Yoga combines physical exercises, controlled breathing techniques, meditations and mantras resulting in an extremely powerful and transformational experience. Through the discipline of Kundalini Yoga you learn to balance mental, emotional and physical health. Kundalini Yoga is easily adapted to sitting in a chair! Around half of my current yoga students use a chair during the class while the other half sit on the yoga mat.
Radiant Child Yoga allows children to develop balance, co-ordination, flexibility and strength, increase their ability to with deal with the stressors of life, improve focus and a calm mind, improve self-awareness and to learn to rest and relax deeper.

Yoga Sets and Meditations
Kundalini Yoga Practice Lengths
Yogic science says that there are specific lengths of time needed for certain desired effects in meditation. Thus, meditations (and exercises in a kriya) are held for a specified period of time.
3 minutes: Affects circulation (blood) and electromagnetic field.
11 minutes: Changes glandular system and nerves.
22 minutes: Balances and coordinates the three minds.
31 minutes: Affects all the cells and rhythms of the body and all layers of the mind’s projection.
62 minutes: Changes the gray matter of the brain. Integrates the subconscious “shadow mind” and the outer projection.
2 ½ hours: Holds the new pattern in the subconscious mind by the surrounding universal mind.
Meditation Cycles of Transformation
Committing to a personal practice makes the meditation process of transformation and self-discovery your own. To master the effects of a meditation, practice it as a sadhana, as a daily discipline. This will develop a life-promoting habit. Habit controls us so much that it is said that we can actually change our destiny by changing our habits. We can use various cycles of the human mind to help replace unwanted patterns of behaviour with new, more positive ones. Choose a meditation that suits your goals and/or inspires you, and commit to practicing it over 40, 90, 120, or 1,000 days.
40 days: Change a habit.
90 days: Confirm the habit.
120 days: You are the new habit.
1,000 days: Mastery of the new habit.
N.B. Holistic therapies do not replace the need for medical attention. Holistic therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones. Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one. There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.
