I used to resist yoga till my company initiated a lunch time yoga session sometime in mid 2015 and I was persuaded to join the class and hence started my Hatha yoga practice. After three months, I was happy to learn that Shirley, who facilitates Chakras Clearing and Healing meditations, launched a weekly Kundalini yoga and I instantly signed up for it. I went with an open mind although there are lots of myths and fear about Kundalini awakening as a result of Kundalini yoga practice. After a month of practice, I experience heightened determination, ability to focus better in my work, coping with emotions and stress and had more clarity in many aspects. Apart from improving my mental wellness, Kundalini yoga also aided in strengthening my immune system, correcting my body posture and eliminating my backache tremendously.
I am drawn to Shirley’s Kundalini yoga class as I find that she is a very committed teacher who plans her lessons very thoroughly. During each session she will introduce a specific set of kriyas (exercises) and breathing techniques and coordinates the session with some beautiful mantras and concludes it perfectly with a meditation for every session. Her comprehensive and precise explanations on the intent for every kriya and mantra provided an assurance to us in knowing what we are learning. After the session, there will be time for those who wish to share their experience during the practice or Shirley will address some issues or questions that are being raised. Shirley even set up a whatsapp chat group to encourage continuous learning among her students. These are totally different from what I experienced in other yoga classes. I will unreservedly recommend Shirley’s Kundalini yoga lessons to all who wants to pursue a more balanced, healthy and happy life.
