"Life is a balance between holding on and letting go" - Rumi
Come and experience a day of Balance & harmony, with the practices Kundalini Yoga, Meditation & Sound Healing.
A true healing journey, deepening our understanding of the feminine & masculine aspects of self, which aspect needs more activation and which aspect needs healing & nurture.
These two types of energies flow through everything that exists.
The complementary nature of the Universe exists because of these energies need each other: Day and Night, Light and Dark, Expansion and Contraction, Hot and Cold, Thought and Emotion, Order and Chaos, Yin and Yang… – all reflections of these primordial energies.
Male Energy is purposeful, direct, like a straight line. It projects outward, it secures and has a giving nature, also relates how we share our gifts and abilities to the outer world.
Female Energy is cyclic, like a circle. It’s directed inward, it nurtures and has a receiving nature, also relates with our inner world and the roots of your emotional state
When they both work together, they dance and form a spiral, moving upwards, thriving and growing. And in this flow we may find our Center our Equilibrium.
My intention throughout my classes and workshops is for participants to have an experience so their minds, as well as their bodies, can absorb information and gain tools to assess themselves and act accordingly.
What to bring:
- yoga mat or similar.
- a snack perhaps for small break and packed lunch ( to your discretion), there's also a coffee shop below the space.
- couple of blankets
- couple cushions, eye pad (if you have one)
- extra warm socks
- and anything else you can think of that will make this day as comfortable as possible for you.
Please arrive 10 minutes before the starting time, if you are travelling and prefer to arrive earlier, that's fine, there's a space where you can wait.
About the teacher:
I fell in love with Kundalini Yoga over 10 years ago. My journey flows from architecture, art, feng shui to yoga. I was always a curious child and developed into an even more curious adult. I started to wonder about life, what is existence? what is my purpose? by detaching myself for the need to get the answers, i found my heart, I look for what's exciting to me, I follow my Joy, my Bliss.”

In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul.
