“It is said we teach what we most need to learn”
So it came to me that the only way through these dirty old patterns and habits of mine is by being more committed to my practise, to be a lot more consistent and have the courage to see things through, not something I’ve been so great at in my life! I’m only human after all!
It occurred to me after someone had said to me “you must have such a wonderful life given you’re a yoga teacher, I imagine you would really have your shit together”....
I haven't written a blog for many years and yet the urge keeps arising to add this to our many offerings as some people, in fact most of our students are so new to Kundalini Yoga and must sometimes wonder what on earth they are doing. I know I felt that way when I first began this unusual style of yoga in 2012 when I stumbled across it in Bali.
I also knew though that what I had found was gold, magic in the breath, power in the movement and depth in the soul of the practise. It felt like it was everything I had been searching for on my endless search for some sort of awakening from the darkness.
To me Kundalini yoga was the answer to my prayers only I wasn't o realise it until many years later when I was to become a teacher and open a studio in Mount Maunganui of all places. If someone had said that to me all those years ago I would have laughed. And yet here I am with my beloved partner Rayna, running The LightRoom and teaching daily classes living the destiny life had paved for me and loving every minute of it.
So for 2019 having had the studio open for nearly 6 months, it seems only fit to start writing a blog to capture these precious moments and share them with you.
Firstly I want to say how incredibly grateful I am to everyone who has joined us as part of our Kundalini family and who continue to support us to support you. We love having our family grow from strength to strength and it is such a privilege to be your teacher and to see you grow.
My personal intention for this year and our collective intention to is keep on shining our light, radiating and elevating our consciousness as teachers to bring more light into your lives. Gone are the days where we have to sit in suffering and upset for long periods of time. We can shift our shit so quickly now with the help of this technology. It's simply and profound and I'm so excited for the journey we are embarking on together.
As I deepen in my own daily practise I think of all our students and smile, knowing we are making a difference in so many peoples lives is enough to expand the heart into an overload of love.
As I sit here typing this I am smiling ear to ear and am about to create our class for this evenings New Moon experience. The teachings are vast and varied with over 8000 meditations and exercises so we'll never get bored, well maybe at that 7 minute mark when you've got your arms above your head, but besides that, there is so much to explore and experience.
Lets go there together, lets create magic and miracles in our lives, lets leave the past behind, drop into this very moment, keep up with our practise like warriors of the light and go forth and conquer.
Sounds like a divine plan indeed.
