YOGA NIDRA WITH NERINE

Dr. Nerine Gregersen is a clinical geneticist and Yoga Nidra teacher at Aroha Love. The stress response is instinctive and automatic. However, the opposite, relaxation, has to be actively pursued. Yoga Nidra is a practice of guided relaxation. This ancient yogic practice therefore provides an effective tool for dealing with the stresses of modern-day living. It induces a state of deep relaxation and is regarded as ‘sleep with awareness’. In this deeply relaxed state the natural healing powers of body and mind are accessed, releasing physical, emotional and psychological tensions, while rejuvenating the whole system.

It is said that an hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep. Yoga Nidra is also used to bring about personal changes and manifest new directions in one’s life. This is achieved through reinforcing a personal resolve or intention (called a sankalpa): when in a deeply relaxed state, the subconscious mind is accessible and receptive to instruction. The practice has benefits even from the first session, but the effects are cumulative. Many people experience improved sleep, relief from stress and anxiety, and a general sense of well-being and vitality.

The process of Yoga Nidra requires that you lie completely still in a comfortable position while a facilitator verbally guides you through a series of mental steps. The result is progressively deeper and deeper relaxation.

KUNDALINI YOGA WITH VARIOUS TEACHERS

Kundalini Yoga is a deep meditation practice known as the Yoga of awareness.

Kundalini Yoga's connection to your core energy allows you to approach each day with a strong sense of individual truth. This presence is obvious to those around you and will result in new opportunities and an expanded reality.

You can walk away from each class with a clarity of mind that breaks through old mental patterns and inspires new ideas.

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." - Carl Jung, author of The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga

KUNDALINI YOGA + GONG + CRYSTAL BOWLS WITH LIVSAHEJ KAUR AND ADI SANJEET

Saturday 9am to 10:30am 

Kundalini Yoga – The practice of Kundalini Yoga balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than being controlled by our thoughts and feelings.

Gong – Sacred gong has been used throughout history as a ceremonial and healing instrument. The vibration of the gong is a powerful method for reducing stress, creating an ocean of sound that is profoundly relaxing activating the parasympathetic nervous system to balance the over-amped sympathetic nervous system.

Livsahej Kaur has been practicing yoga for over ten years. She was introduced to Kundalini Yoga in 2013. In 2014 she made the journey to New Mexico to train as a KRI Level One Kundalini teacher.  Currently she is in the process of completing her Level 2 teacher modules.

“The ancient practice of Kundalini Yoga has captured my heart and soul and I feel very privileged to share it with others”.

Adi Sanjeet Kaur is currently completing KRI level one Kundalini Yoga teacher training. Adi Sanjeet has a passion for sound. She is a gong player and is currently completing her gong practitioner study under international Kundalini Gong Master, Mehtab Benton.

“I found Kundalini Yoga in January 2018 at a time when I was in great need of physical and emotional healing. The effects and benefits of Kundalini Yoga were so immediate and deep that I knew I had found something really special. I’ve made this practice part of my daily life and am grateful every day for the transformation it brings”.
