European Yoga Festival 2009


Back from the 2009 European Yoga Festival. This year's theme was the Subtle Body and it made the festival itself SO subtle. Everything was incredibly gentle EVEN White Tantra. Great one for beginners to settle them in softly to the festival.

My 4th festival in a row and I simply loved it. We had super hot glorious weather. Only rained on one day (the morning of the 2nd day of Tantra).

See the weather in the photo.

I did the Shakti Dance workshop every morning and Nanak Dev's Gong Workshop every afternoon = bliss!

I haven't done sadhana since I returned but will do ...... at some point..... famous last words.....

Karta Kaur's all camp workshop was fabulous! Go London!

The whole vibe this year was so relaxed and chilled. Loved it. I will also attach a photo of the opening ceremony.

Bye for now,

Kundalini Yoga for Empowering Women


Well this blog has the word "truths" on the end, so here are some... finally

I only wear my turban about 11 days a year (I do wear a white bandana when I teach though), but something happened this Sunday morning; I got an urge to put it on. Then I got an urge to do some yoga. So I put on the Kundalini Yoga for Empowering Women DVD and did the full set plus relaxation plus the inner anger meditation. Then I did the celestial communication meditation on the same DVD. I wore my turban for the rest of the day, and felt sad when I took it off. Anyway my stomach muscles are killing me today! So I am going to do it really often now, to tone up.

Even though I have blogged about sadhana, I haven't got that far yet, but want to and feel closer to it now. I do sadhana at retreats and at the yoga festival, but have never got into a proper routine in my own home. I would love to do sadhana with others and there are loads round London, but I don't drive.

Anyway, bye for now, wish me luck on my Kundalini journey within :-)

I am bountiful

I am the light of the soul
I am bountiful
I am beautiful
I am bliss
I am
I am

In my Friday yoga class I taught the set for prana apana, and ended the class with the above meditation, using the same celestial communication in "Mantras in Motion".

We sat in a circle and it was beautiful. 11 students and me.

I haven't done any yoga during the week. My weight is the same as it was beginning of January. Since the start of 2009, I lost 3 pounds and gained it back the week after the week I lost it. All of this despite the fact that my main goal for 2009 is to lose weight.

I think I can't trust myself to fit yoga in everyday, unless I finally, once and for all start to do sadhana every morning. I know it will be life-changing and I know I will never look back. I don't know what it is that holds me back. I know I am not a morning person, but ocassionally, I HAVE been wide awake at 5 a.m. and I am almost scared to do sadhana. I know it sounds incredibly silly but I think I know that it will connect me to the infinite, and I think on some level I am scared of that. If I am really honest, I am scared of leaving the status quo. It is easier to be ME than face the potential of being ALL I am capable of.

Anyone finding this blog, will be expecting direction from a seasoned yogi, given that I have been practising since 2002, BUT I called this blog "Kundalini Journey TRUTHS" for a reason.

I needed an outlet for my innermost true feelings that I never say out loud, for fear of sounding CRAP. But because I am a perfectionist, saying it out loud now, online, will start the course that gives me a degree of accountability.

My hotline to the heavens is readily opened and I know sadhana will have me radiant, glowing and a better person. I just need to take that step into the unknown. Whenever I do sadhana at the Yoga Festival or at a retreat I am in 7th heaven. What doesn't help is I don't drive, so even though there are several group sadhanas around it is hard to access them.

I aim to start a daily sadhana practice either Saturday or Sunday this weekend. Fingers crossed I will. Once I start....... I will log here my journey......... what kriyas I choose, the effects they have on me........... everything........ warts and all. Wish me luck. Wahe Guru!

Bye for now,

KY Heart.
