Transform yourself from the inside out with weekly Kundalini Yoga Classes in Bath and Frome
Kundalini Yoga classes in Frome and Bath, give you the foundation for a happy and healthy life. You will find that they will strengthen your physical body, increase flexibility, open your heart to more trust and the flow of love and train your mind to be more peaceful.
These classes are not just about stretching the body, we use the breath and the physical body as a vessel to move beyond mind and body so you can have a direct experience of the vastness of your Soul.
Yoga means union so we take our individual consciousness and through experience, you access your Divine Presence. When we live in alignment with the Soul or the True Self, there is less struggle, we worry less and trust more and life flows more with ease. These classes will transform you from the inside out!
‘The physical body is the basic temple is which you can deposit the treasure of happiness in life.’
We use specific kriya’s (set of yoga postures that build the energy in a specific way through the body and 72,000 energy pathways) using breath work, mantra, meditations and asanas) so we can quickly and safely come to a place of deep peace and contentment.
Kundalini yoga empowers you with the tools you need to transform so you can have a healthy, happy and wholesome life.
Classes are suitable for all abilities and for all ages over aged 13.
Beginners are welcome and you go at your own pace. We are a friendly Kundalini community that gather on Thursday evenings.
Yoga mats are provided.
Tune in with the Adi Mantra
ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO
‘I bow to the primal wisdom. I bow to the wisdom true throughout the ages. I bow to the true wisdom. I bow to the great divine within.’
Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guru Dev-ay Nameh.
‘When you cannot be protected, this mantra will protect you. When things stop and won’t move, this makes them move in your direction’ – Yogi Bhajan
These are a number of yoga postures chosen by the teacher to warm the body and help to move the internal energy before doing the kriya.
The word kriya means action and in Kundalini Yoga the kriyas have been designed by Yogi Bhajan to have a specific effect on the body so that a sequence of posture, breath and sound create the flow of life energy in the body and aura.
Usually 5-11 minutes to allow the effects of the kriya to be integrated
Mantra’s are often used in a class as a meditation although sometimes we will do a breath meditation. We are creating a state of mind called shunya which means zero or beyond mind by accessing the anahat (the infinite unstruck sound or vibration) which brings intuition, inner strength and an elevated sense of self. When you chant, the sound current syncronises your nervous system, the ego relaxes and every cell vibrates with the naad of the mantra.
To end class
Long Time Sunshine Prayer – This is a blessing sung at the end of a class to to send blessings to ourselves, those who need healing and then the whole world.
‘May the long time sunshine shine upon you. May all love surround you. And the pure light within you, guide your way on’
Sat Nam – This is a seed mantra to change the deepest subconscious and means Truth is My Identity. This is chanted at the end of a class and the Sat being long and Nam kept short.

- Kundalini yoga is a beautiful yoga practice. Come with an open mind and open heart and be inspired by this wonderful technology. Sat Nam.
People often wear white and cover their heads with a scarf when practicing Kundalini Yoga although this is not essential. White is the highest vibrational colour and it can expand your aura by 3 feet just by wearing it so when you wear white and practice Kundalini yoga this has a profound effect on your energy and your aura. Covering your head helps to keep your grounded during and after the practice as Kundalini yoga has a strong effect on the energy within you. Neither of these practices are compulsory.
‘I want to thank you so much for leading me and being an enormous inspiration in my life. I am filled with deep gratitude to you for supporting and encouraging me on this journey. I came to you during my darkest time of my life and I know my soul delivered me to your class. You can an incredible teacher and have supported me to find peace and depth within me that I have been longing to find for so long. I lay my forehead on the floor in gratitude to you-one soul to another.’
‘It’s wonderful and eye opening. The exercises are really powerful and show you where your blocks are. Jotipal is an incredible teacher and really holds a safe space to open up.’
‘There is a beauty in your presence. There is a beauty in your radiance. And that radiance of your psyche reaches out and communicates who you are.’
