Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan

Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan

Do you happen to be one of those who ‘fight’ for time to sleep a little longer, meet deadlines at work, be with loved ones or do the things you love, and wish you have more than 24 hours? Or are you feeling you play ‘catching up’ on most days?

As a yoga teacher, passionate about living a balanced life and doing whatever I do with joy and aliveness, I too face challenges like everyone else with commitments. I too need reminders about taking a breather and letting myself relax. Whenever I surrender to the flow, trust and relax, I can clear my mind and listen to the voice of my intuition and inner guidance. It is also a reminder that to take a breather is having faith in the divine order of life.

Yogi Bhajan, my teacher, said “If nothing else … teach people to breathe and to relax.” I am blessed with tools that support me to manage in a calmer and balanced manner so that I create a peaceful environment, sustain loving relationships and connect to meaning in my life.

I am teaching the next set of 4 sessions of Kundalini Yoga at Going Om and I invite you to give yourself a breather. Whether you have done yoga before or not, come and give yourself an experience of Kundalini Yoga,(as taught by Yogi Bhajan). We meet every Monday at 7.15 pm for 1.5 hours at Going Om.

Kundalini Yoga is focused on awareness and we use breathing, mudras (sacred gestures), asanas (postures), mantras (sound vibrations), and meditation. Like all other forms of yoga aimed at union of body and mind, you get to learn to relax, feel better physically, have the energy and enthusiasm to handle what you need in your life, gain emotional balance and mental control in challenges.

About Gennet Song

Gennet is a warm, compassionate woman. Some may describe her as an ambitious go-getter but friends who know her intimately will say that she is defined by her care for people. She is passionate about walking her talk and creating meaning in her own life and others. She lives her dream of touching lives through her time in workshops in schools, yoga classes and healing work, and goes to bed each night satisfied that she’s given all she can or know how. The eldest of a family of 3, Gennet took care of her younger sister and brother when her parents died. She became their mother, father, brother, sister, friend and confidant. This family responsibility put her own dreams on hold till her siblings were independent. After her first taste and experience of transformational workshops, her passion for the healing arts and personal growth was ignited. Now 15 years later, she sees all the tools she has gathered and her own life experiences as her treasure chest which she wants to share with those who wants to grow and live fully and passionately. The yoga mat is just one of the ways she brings life lessons to her students. She often reminds her students it’s not what they can do on the mat, but who they become and are in the world using what they learn on the mat. And when her clients walk out of her door knowing they have a right to live their dreams and go passionately after them, it makes her heart sings. Her heart-song is that each of us deserves to shine and when we do so, we allow others to do the same.
