Kundalini yoga may seem like it takes more effort and work compared to chakra or sound meditation classes, but it is a very effective way of getting the energy flowing in the body. The movements are not difficult and very often, as with any type of yoga classes, we are encouraged to do what we can. Over time, it gets easier! I was even more inspired to continue my Kundalini yoga practices with Shirley after her very wise advice: “Spend more time nurturing yourself and gain much more later!”. Since then, I have been attending the Saturday morning classes every week as long as my schedule allows, and I have benefitted so much from it. I feel more clear-headed and energised and indeed, I have gained so much more efficient time later on!
I enjoyed the whole experience! I have been feeling so tired and unbalanced and left feeling happier and rejuvenated! I really enjoyed the mix of breathing exercises, stretching and meditations. As a scientist I also really appreciate the scientific explanation behind why things work. I enjoyed it all, particularly the part on learning about ourselves and the chanting meditations.
The workshop is awesome, it explained the science of Kundalini Yoga very well. Every aspect of KY was captured (ie meditation, breathwork, exercises, mantras) and explained scientifically and also very experiential. I get to feel the whole body vibrating within and out and able to experience being my true self.
The Kundalini Yoga workshop is really good! It gives me an understanding of the kundalini exercises that I do in class. I have gained a deeper insight to myself and how I can in tune to myself when I need to.
My tension & pain in my shoulders & neck area has subsided a lot. The breathing techniques has helped to unblock the tension & bring healing to my body. Thanks Shirley for your amazing work & guidance!
The contents of the workshop is well covered. I enjoyed learning about the different types of breathing techniques and how to do it correctly.
I enjoyed learning about the breathing techniques and their benefits as well as understanding more about Kundalini. It enables self-understanding and appreciation.
I have been so fortunate to have found Shirley’s Kundalini Reiki course back in 2009. In receiving the Kundalini Reiki attunement my life has really changed in ways that are difficult to explain! I feel so much more empowered and able to handle situations that I may have found too difficult or uncomfortable in the past because I now know they are due to energy and I can now change the energy to positive or for the highest good. I use my Kundalini Reiki almost every day for one reason or another, to help myself or others with issues or even to just have a good day. Former energy blockages have been removed and I now take action whenever I decide to do something I want to do. I have decided to fearlessly return to university and pursue a second degree, I have lost 40 pounds, I am no longer afraid to act! I am so much more balanced and grounded now that I have the Kundalini Reiki attunement but most important of all, I am happy!
I went on to attend Kundalini Yoga and Sound healing classes led by Shirley and I have not looked back since. They brought about a lot more awareness and understanding and are integral in shedding light on aspects of my self that require more compassion and healing – this also changes the way I relate to the world and to the people around me. As each session can bring up a lot of “debris”, it can be tough (especially if the ego and body are resisting) but Shirley is very loving, patient, honest, supportive and nurturing and through her, I am learning to love myself better and heal the parts of me that are wounded. Thank you both for creating this space and sanctuary; I am forever glad.
I enjoy Kundalini Yoga by Shirley and have been attending the weekly classes regularly since 2015. Every class is different as I experienced lots of meaningful realizations, answers while seeking for clarity and some aha moments. Kundalini Yoga is a wholesome practice for the body with kriyas, for the mind with meditation and breathing techniques; and for the soul with sacred and beautiful mantras. I value and look forward to all the morning Sadhana as those are the precious time and space when I can truly be connected ‘For Myself, With Myself and Be Myself’. Thank you Shirley and ReDefine Wellness for providing the platform for proper and safe practice. Very grateful and thankful for being the Light to shine and guide us in our spiritual paths and journey of discoveries.
