We all have an energetic field which is part of our body. This natural energy, called bioenergy or chi, flows between the Chakras. We can absorb energy from others, we can leave energy behind and we can give energy to others. Sometimes, energy gets blocked and becomes unbalanced. This Meditation class will focus on unblocking and balancing that energy, which will contribute to a deeper calmness within the constant change of life.

Teens are under constant stress from their school work, to friends and family, and pursuing their hobbies. Not only do the yoga poses offer stress relief in the way they manipulate the body, but it is also in the mindfulness element of the practice that teens will find relief and learn to balance their life. When they begin to match their breath to the movement, they begin to slow down and notice what their body is saying to them.

Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your Soul.
In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood.

Ravi Kirin Kaur is the Spiritual name of Maggie Butler, our Kundalini Yoga Teacher, she says, she is still growing into the name, when briefly translated it means, a bringer of Light into people's lives. Ravi stumbled upon Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, at a time of great upheaval in her life, a time of separation and tragedy, an amazing awakening was taking place. Kundalini Yoga became a steady rock, on which Ravi began to rebuild her life. That was in 2009 and in 2013 Ravi took KRI Teacher Training with Guru Sahai in Westport and Jai Kartar in Cork, and part of the training included White Trantra in London. Ravi also had the privilege of being taught by Sada Sat Kaur, and Sada Sat Singh two of Yogi Bhajan’s first Teachers. Ravi has been teaching since 2014, in various different locations across the North East. As a latecomer to this Yogic world Ravi is a testament to “it’s never too late”, and “Yoga is for everyone“ Recently in 2017, Ravi completed training in PTSD through Art & Yoga a trauma sensitive forum which Ravi also brings to her classes.

I am delighted to return to DYC after three years of living in Sweden. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a total physics geek and a renewable energy enthusiast who enjoys running and laughing loudly. I’m also an optimistic early riser who is spontaneous, curious and loves coffee. I have a lighthearted approach to the practice, my aim is to make people feel at home in their own body. My classes are designed to help people cultivate the breath, body, mind connection which I believe is the foundation of the yoga practice. Using alignment principles I like to encourage self inquiry which empowers the practitioner in order to make them feel comfortable and safe.
