We are so happy to have Murkhande Kaur (Áine Brosnan) teaching Kundalini at the Killarney Yoga House. There are not to many teacher specialized in this practice in Ireland and less in Kerry.
But probably you are wondering: What is Kundalini?
Kundalini yoga utilizes a combination of technologies, such as conscious breathing, physical postures, sound vibrations, meditation and mantra. The combined effects are akin to tuning one’s body to a higher frequency, thus creating a heightened state of consciousness and well-being. Also known as the Yoga of awareness, the aim of this ancient practice is to awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual.
A science of the central nervous system, the mechanisms at work in the various asanas, (postures) of Kundalini yoga, combine sensory stimuli received through all of the sensory doorways. Asanas may be done in isolation, or combined in sets known as kriyas. Typically, one kriya is performed in each Kundalini yoga class, which may require as long as two hours to complete. Each asana is both a physical exercise, and a meditation, and is designed to open the channels and pathways for energy to flow freely. The various combinations of these actions have specific effects on the central nervous system, heart rate, and even blood and lymphatic flow. Some exercises work to stimulate, others to soothe. The specific angles involved in the postures work to redirect blood and energy to various glands and organs, restoring balance to the glandular system, and purifying the blood by flushing or increasing circulation.
Kundalini yoga is an ancient practice that has been preserved and passed down, for the benefit of humanity. As Yogi Bhajan, the man who brought Kundalini yoga to the west, presciently knew, “no one needs it more” than the chronically overworked, hyper-stressed, and still heavily-medicated population of the modern Western world.
And who is Áine?
Murkhande Kaur (Aine Brosnan), I have been practising various types of yoga since the 1980’s first attending classes while studying in UCC. I discovered Kundalini yoga 10 years ago and was immediately hooked on the natural fast acting high vibrations that I felt and have had a constant daily practice since. I love this tradition of Yoga as it has a very long and deep lineage and it’s so powerful and direct, providing the tools to heal and develop mentally physically and spiritually. It creates a state of balance and neutrality that can allow us to fulfill those deep human desires of good health, prosperity and love. I did the teacher training in 2009 and have been teaching in West Cork since 2010. I recently moved to Kerry and was delighted to find the Killarney yoga house as a home for my classes. There is a lovely sense of warm welcome and community there even though it has only been open since the autumn 2017. Really looking forward to spending time in this beautiful space sharing these powerful teachings with those who feel drawn.
