Sat Nam dear Yogis ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a great youtube ..you may enjoy to play it in the background while reading, if it is appropriate for you.

This is our February newsletter, this time written from the Burnside Library.. where I live has not had electricity in almost two days and I surrendered to coming here.. a beautiful space, sitting by huge glass windows overlooking trees and a road and a little cute water feature. How lucky are we? When we have an obstacle, there are always wonderful new solutions full of their own unique gifts, if only we take a look with an open mind and heart…

The symbolism life gives us every moment is just incredible .. I see the cars rushing by, the trees all still and majestic, the trickle of the water in the pond, the glass window between us, the sound of the air-conditioning, the typing of my fingers and those around me … distant sounds behind me … a child with the cutest voice talking delightedly to her father ..
Such is the gift of life .. full of such incredible creativity and endless layers we may perceive through our unique lenses …

It is joy to contemplate the many kaleidoscopic aspects to our lives .. being in them, participating, observing … immersing ..
Feeling gratitude for it all … everything is a gift and a chance to delve deeper into yourself and all that is …
This is why I love kundalini yoga … we are not only moving the body to tone it, but we are keeping our vessel (body) healthy on all levels (the glands, the immune system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system etc.) plus learning to hold the energies by using our mindful focus, stabilizing our monkey mind, directing attention and energy, and keeping us be full of vitality through breathwork which energises us with prana balance (life force coming in and releasing old stuck energies with the exhale)…

What I love even more is that when we practise ourselves, we take it into the world, and this affects the world positively! It is a service to humanity and yourself .. it is balance… not just a focus on the physical aspect .. and the amazing beauty is that it is very hard to change the physical form (weight-balance, toning, health of organs etc) if the unconscious mind is running wild… with kundalini we release unconscious habits and free ourselves to truly see and walk our path in awareness and freedom .. we also balance the hormones which aid to balance weight .. we also balance the metabolism .. and most of all we work on increasing the level of awareness and consciousness, which translates into healthy food choices naturally, without force, efforting, but joy and definitely no overeating naturally … how brilliant!!!! Feel free to ask me more or if you would like a few classes with a focus on weight balance or physical health in particular ways, please let me know ..

Love yourself fully as you are now … And be your own VALENTINE! Yes! I say February can be dedicated to that .. as part of the new year’s resolutions, what a great platform from which to leap forward! I am very passionate about this, as I KNOW all we need it within us! And once we all embrace and see this deeply, the outside world will have to reflect this back … Sounds simple, but it is a process … a process of taking the time out and commit to time to yourself to connect to that awareness within you … Whatever works for you, honour that .. of course for me it is kundalini yoga .. it is almost like magic, for it touches every aspect of our being, so the transformation is deep and total, rather than sporadic and in only one area of life .. it is all connected … this month I am offering you the double joy of kundalini yoga in nature, and a mini retreat for chakra balance and healing plus going within, where all your answers and creativity are!
Please read the blue section right on top of the newsletter ๐Ÿ™‚ … This is the focus of this month in classes!!!

Also note: ADVANCE NOTICE: In March we start an 8 week CHAKRA SERIES programme, where each week we work with a new chakra! It starts with the base chakra on Thursday the 6th of March (same chakra all week) and finishes with the aura and electromagnetic field on Sunday the 27th of April. You will learn much about each energy centre .. how it affects your life, and how to balance it using kundalini yoga ….More in the next newsletter. Here is a link to my website for more background info on this (I am still working on that webpage, but it has currently useful info you can read now already) : https://kundalinistudio.com.au/classes/kundalini-yoga-inspirations/4/

This month we will enjoy a variety of kriyas with a focus on our Navel Point.

In the ancient shastras it states that: ALL YOGA STARTS AT THE NAVEL POINT

I will share a little story that expresses this: A young student asked his teacher how far he must travel to find enlightenment and the true path of the Self.

The teacher spread his fingers wide and said, โ€œyou must travel the distance from the thumb to the tip of the little fingerโ€ฆ if you place the spread hand on your stomach with the little finger on the navel point, then the thumb stretches to the heart centre. This is the mystical path consciousness must ascendโ€ฆโ€

The entire point of balance and force depends on developing the awareness of the Navel Point as a centre around which the body moves in many forms of martial arts.

If you wish to truly understand the nature of meditation and consciousness, a clear conception of the energy and function of the navel centre helps and is vital.

The Navel Point is not just a point, but it is a centre of energy transformation in the body.

The science of kundalini yoga states that the mental and physical levels of consciousness are totally interrelated and co-regulating! There are areas in the physical body that connect with the chakras in the electromagnetic body.

The chakras transform different frequencies of energy, and this transformation results in different behaviours and levels of consciousness.

The Navel Point does not correspond with the umbilicus, navel, or belly button, although it is related to it. The centre itself is etheric, a few inches down and in front of the lower spine.

It has a very important function, since thousands of channels carrying the life force of the body converge through this point and have their different currents, ratios, and intensities of flow initiated and adjusted there.

By observing whether or not the Navel Point is centred in its optimal location, and the intensity of energy coming from it, we can self-diagnose and correct many maladies that would not easily be dealt with by other therapeutic approaches.

If the Navel Point is displaced, many hard-to-diagnose maladies can exist in the personโ€™s body, such as:

If displaced upwards: improper digestion, constipation, acidity, diseases of the heart, and general irritation in behaviour will be the result.
If displaced downwards: loose motion, dyspepsia, colic pain, and bad dreams.

If displaced sideways, acute pain results. These pains are located in the various nerves of the body and are difficult to remove with drugs. In females displacement often leads to such problems as strong pain associated with menstruation and menstrual irregularity.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!!!! Shine your unique light!!!! Enjoy the links below to your right … where I share research, music and yogic info .. and how to book into classes .. thank you very much to all of you who book in !!! I really appreciate it very much!!!!

Deep breath in …. hold … and slow deep exhale … hold … and enjoy!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Sat Nam Rasayan Training

For thousands of years, Sat Nam Rasayan was a secret tradition. It was taught in silence by a master to his student and only a few highly developed students were so privileged. The process of training lasted several years until the student could recognize and maintain a state of neutrality and silence.

Ambrosio is from Spain and is an orthopaedic surgeon, osteopath, Sat Nam Rasayan practitioner and teacher, and a kundalini yoga teacher. He co-wrote the first book ever published on the healing art of Sat Nam Rasayan with Guru Dev Singh. His teaching takes him around Spain, Germany, South America and now Australia.

He will be my teacher this time in Melbourne.
Sat Nam Rasayan teaches you to heal others, integrate silence and calmness into your life, release unhealthy behaviour and allows you to experience every moment and emotions without any attachment to them and you develop and establish inner silence in your mind to hone your intuition.

I will share more soon!
