This is an introductory course for Kundalini Yoga, no previous yoga experience is required. Flexibility of body (while nice to have) is not a pre-requisite, more important is flexibility of mind; willingness to experience a new discipline in a non-judgemental and non-competitive environment would be paramount.
Students will go through a series of breathing exercises while sitting on the floor with a straight back (as far as your body allows) with eyes closed for inner focus and in a meditative state. Physical movements will be introduced gradually and there are always alternate positions available as we all have different physical constraints.
(Note: Kundalini Yoga could be physically demanding for intermediate and advanced levels, but not at this course level.)
This is not a course to try for a week or two and give up – each class will be progressively built from previous week(s). All the tutor asks is your commitment to completing this 8-week introductory course before deciding it’s not for you!
The emphasis is on your breath, mind and body (in that sequence). This practice does not follow any religious discipline or faith.
Suitable for students of both genders, I would particularly encourage men who have never tried yoga to participate (often assuming certain extremely flexible yoga pose is required – NOT true for this course).
NOTE: No previous yoga experience is assumed or required.
Please bring your own yoga mat or cushion (for sitting if required) – there are some mats available at MKC.
TUTOR: Peter has been a regular yoga practitioner in different styles of yoga for a number of years, Kundalini yoga for the last 2½ years. He finally decided to do his Level 1 Yoga Teachers Training course in Kundalini Yoga in Rishekesh, India (often referred to as the home of yoga).
