Kundalini Yoga is a powerful practice combining breath work, postures, meditation and mantra to bring balance to mind, body and spirit. It is known as the yoga of awareness for the enhanced clarity it brings to people’s lives. Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice that was traditionally taught in secret from Master to disciple in India, before being brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan in 1969 and made available to all.
Juliet has just relocated from London to Berkshire (on 1 April 2019); details of new group classes will be posted imminently.
1-2-1s are a great opportunity to tailor classes to an individual’s specific needs and levels of ability. After an initial consultation, Juliet chooses sets to elevate the individual, whilst at the same time challenging them, and also offers advice on developing a personal practice. Private classes further incorporate space to discuss any experiences, changes and challenges brought about through the practice.
Sessions are offered in Reading, Newbury and Aldermaston and are usually 90 minutes – 2 hours in duration. Contact Juliet for further information and to arrange an initial consultation.
How does it work?
The word Kundalini means ‘the curl in the lock of the hair of the beloved’ and refers to the dormant energy situated at the base of the spine. Through the practice of Kundalini Yoga, the chakras are gradually balanced, thereby enabling this energy to rise in a safe way, and creating a heightened sense of awareness.
What to expect:
A typical class involves tuning in with the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo x 3), some breathing exercises and/or warm-ups, followed by a Kriya, which is a sequence of postures, breath and sound, that are carried out in a specific order to work on a particular theme. There are thousands of Kundalini Yoga Kriyas – all varying in intensity – and so each class may feel quite different from the next. A class concludes with a meditation, followed by a relaxation, and tuning out with three repetitions of the mantra Sat Nam.

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.
