Kundalini Yoga with Gurmukh
Gloria Latham and Gurmukh at City Center Semperviva
I truly believe that things come to you when we are ready to receive them. If I had been introduced to Kundalini yoga a few years ago, I would not have appreciated this practice of Hatha yoga. For those of you not familiar to Kundalini, it is a physical and meditative practice that utilizes breathing techniques and mantra. Kundalini is the prana or life force, lying dormant in chakras in the body. It is conceptualized as a coiled up serpent that sleeps at the base of one’s spine. Kundalini yoga is said to awaken the kundalini which is our individual light that already exists in each one of us. Along with many others, I had the pleasure to spend five hours with Gurmukh, one of the co-founders of Golden Bridge Yoga in Los Angeles and New York, at Semperviva’s City Center studio. Gurmukh exudes love, peace and humour along with an extremely fit body! She started off the Sunday workshop talking about food and how it affects our bodies and the clarity of our minds. She led us through a physically challenging practice and meditation. As a result of this workshop, I am motivated to do my own spring cleanse this month with some of my students and take more of Gloria’s Kundalini classes! Contact me if you want to join our amazing yoga kula with this cleanse.
