Kundalini Yoga Workshop – Returning to our Centre

with Samantha Claire

This workshop will  provide a stimulating and nourishing space allowing you to open up to a deeper connection to the elements, your senses and the beating of your heart. We will explore tools for opening yourself up to self-love, finding our inner state of peace, harmony and balance. We will end the workshop with song and Kirtan to further our connection to opening the heart and speaking our truth

 Kundalini yoga is a physical and meditative discipline, comprising a set of techniques that use the mind, senses, and body to create a communication between mind and body.
Kundalini yoga focuses on psycho-spiritual growth and the bodies potential for maturation, giving special consideration to the role of the spine and the endocrine system in the understanding of yogic awakening.
Kundalini yoga concentrates on the chakras in the body in order to generate a spiritual power, which is known as kundalini. This energy is the potential form of prana or life force, lying dormant in our bodies. It is conceptualised as a coiled up serpent. Literally, kundalini in Sanskrit is “that which is coiled,” (Sanskrit kund, “to burn”; kunda,” to coil or to spiral” but some claim that it should be translated “lock of hair of the Beloved”) lying at the base of our spine, which can spring awake when activated by spiritual disciplines.

Originally from Cape Town and now based in Copenhagen. Over the past 18 years, Samantha’s journey has led her to study and practice Kundalini yoga, dance, psychology and shamanism, as well as various spiritual and ancient esoteric teachings. As the creator of Body Choir; an ecstatic meditation movement practice, she facilitates holistic retreats throughout the UK, Europe, and South Africa. She’s drawn greatly from Five Rhythms dance, contact improvisation, shamanism, tantra, Kundalini yoga and meditation. Her work is centred around recovering balance and trust within our bodies, reconnecting to our heart center as a source of inner power and wisdom to awaken freedom within.
