Kundalini Yoga classes at the Breath & Harmony Yoga Studio, Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
The process of growth through Kundalini Yoga is a natural unfolding of your own nature. The blocks to that growth are your attachments to the familiarity of the past, and your fear of the expanded Self. As you practice Kundalini Yoga you will grow. Like a snake you will need to shed old skins to be more of who you are - Kundalini Yoga
Welcome to Kundalini Yoga, Breath & Harmony Yoga Studio, Harpenden
Kundalini Yoga is known as the yoga of transformation, awareness and wellness. It is an ancient, sacred technology of asanas, mantras, pranayam and meditation which was brought the West in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan.
It is a practice that will challenge you, elevate you and encourage your personal and spiritual evolution. Practicing Kundalini yoga promotes physical well-being and emotional stability by training the mind to be strong and flexible when faced with challenges and change.
We live in a world of increasing pressure from technology and society creating a constant pressure on our personal space and health. It is difficult to withstand this pressure and process the intensity of the world right now and so we need something to navigate us away from this negativity and vastness where we can feel calm and inner stillness. Kundalini Yoga is a simple (yet can be challenging) way to instantly release the pressure and leave you with longer lasting effects.
A kundalini practice will help to;
* increases oxygen
* balances the glandular system,
* stimulates the immune system,
* boosts blood flow
* strengthens the nervous system.
*clean out subconscious thought patterns
*increase strength, vitality and flexibility
*increase lung capacity for better breathing
* create greater peace and harmony
*create inner calm and greater self esteem
*helps with mental
This gives you greater awareness and ability to choose how you respond to your thoughts and feelings. Through practice, you can train your mind and body not to react emotionally—not by repressing emotions, but by developing a buffer zone, a time and space in which to process and make conscious choices about your responses.
Kundalini Yoga helps to awaken the energy of consciousness. The practice brings to us an awareness of our self-limited beliefs and habitual patterns that we inherited from the past. The primary goal of Kundalini yoga is to allow us to reach our full potential and to expand our awareness of our unlimited self. A stressful environment, life problems, losses, or traumatic events can create blockages in the energy flow that can translate into psychological symptoms such as anxiety and worry. Balancing your chakras can help you restore the energy flow in your system and thus, reduce stress and anxiety levels.
I warmly welcome you to experience Kundalini yoga for yourself. The benefits of this yoga will help to add depth and a deeper meaning to your life. The practice of Kundalini Yoga will align you to your true self ~ your beautiful and divine self.
What is a typical Kundalini Yoga Class
The typical format of a class starts by tuning in with a mantra, pranayam (breathing exercises), warm-up followed by a kriya (sequence of posture, mantra and breath done with a specific intended outcome), relaxation and meditation. We end the class with a blessing and a mantra. Each class will offer a different kriya and meditation. The gong is played during our relaxation.
Some kriya examples include; kriyas for disease resistance, for kidneys/adrenals (ie stress), to relax & release fear, to help beat anxiety and depression, for anger & negativity, for beauty & radiance, to open your heart, or let go of grief.
Within the practice there are built-in moments of stillness where we sit quietly and awaken our inner self. The breath work within the kriya's is so powerful that it starts to strip away the layers that veil our consciousness, and during these moments we can begin to sense the fullness of who we are.
Kundalini Yoga is for everyone.
Everyone is welcome to Kundalini Yoga classes. They are suitable for all levels of flexibility and fitness and you will leave feeling calm and energised.

Julie's classes always leave me feeling more energised, less stressed, happier, and healthier. Julie offered classes via Zoom during the COVID-19 lockdown not for her own profit but to help charities in her local community and for the health and well-being of her clients, friends and anyone wanting to try kundalini yoga. Julie truly has one of the kindest hearts you'll ever meet!" Elizabeth, Cranleigh
"Spinal class amazing! I had L3/4 discectomy 12 years ago and my back is stiff especially in the mornings. Can't believe how good and how powerful Kundalini Yoga is" Lisa, Redbourne
"Julie's Kundalini Yoga class is wonderful. I'm new to yoga but felt immediately welcome, and you can take the moves as easily or intensely as you like. It's a great work out, refreshes the soul, and leaves you feeling like you've had a good work out but also really energised and refreshed (and you'll sleep well!). Each week is different and focuses on a different part of the body or energy system so it's interesting too. Thank you Julie" - Cassie, Harpenden
