What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is yoga for the mind. There are no physical movements. The teacher guides you into a meditative state and your brain is allowed to rest from today’s high speed/high tech life.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is the practise of movement and meditations to cleanse purify mind and body and enable an awakening of new energy and consciousness. It is a deep body and mind-centred practise. You do not break into a sweat like Ashtanga or Vinyassa flow. The movements – called Kriya – are in sets, and each has an intention, or intended purpose, that encourages or enables change in your life. We often work on the heart, navel and arms and shoulders, along with the legs to strengthen the nervous system, reset the vagus nerve and psoas muscle as their harmony and balance is the key to good health.

Gong Baths

The gong bath massages every cell in your body and resets the parasympathetic nervous system. The following list outlines benefits you may feel after a gong bath.
