Sat Nam fellow Yogis,
My name is Uriel; I am a descendent of the Kuku Yananji Aboriginal community from Far North Queensland, and I would like to share my Kundalini yoga experiences with you. I have been coming to Sabine’s sessions for approximately 5 to 6 months. Before this I was attending Kundalini yoga with another teacher and began the practice 4 years ago.
I always say Kundalini found me. I was drawn to a website add, which described the practice and benefits of Kundalini yoga which really resonated with me. I will never forget my very first class, I felt great upon leaving but, an hour or so later I needed to go and lie down such was the power of the Kundalini energy!. I decided this yoga was for me.
I was looking for a practice to bring balance into my life. I have a mental illness; Bi-polar –effective disorder which I manage well with medication most of the time and I find a regular yoga practice complements this well. I am a wife, a mother of two young men and I work full-time job in the Education Department and I study part time; for a degree in early Childhood teaching; working with young children is my passion.
Over the past 4 and half years I have tried to keep a regular Kundalini yoga practice happening, I aim for twice a week; but currently I attend once a week because of end of year study commitments.
Not so long ago; maybe 6 weeks, I missed yoga for 2 whole weeks due to illness and what I discovered was during that 2 weeks, after I had got over my illness, I began finding it hard to breathe deeply and freely, it was peculiar, not only that but I felt I was letting things ‘get on top of me’ reacting badly to small stressors. I believe it was my body letting me know just how effective Kundalini is. It’s like the old saying ‘you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. I love Kundalini yoga and look forward to going each week knowing I am going to feel the benefits of the practice including balance, awareness and wellbeing long after I finish the class.
I have loved the breath work Sabine has offered and I am beginning to incorporate aspects of it into every day.
Thank you so much Sabine,
Warm wishes to all
