About the classes…

Please feel free to call Kirsty on 07968 493452 if you have any questions before your first class

Each class will be different as we will be focusing on a particular aspect of ourselves each week, however the structure of the class will remain the same… and all classes will work on strengthening our nervous system and balancing our glandular system, increasing our vitality, and reducing our levels of stress.

A typical class will include:

  • Tuning in chant
  • Warm up exercises which will prepare you for the yoga set (kriya) to follow
  • Kriya – a series of exercises designed to affect a particular aspect of yourself
  • Deep relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Tuning out chant

Useful information

“Attending Kirsty’s kundalini yoga class has been transformational, my only regret is that I did not find her sooner.
Kirsty radiates such positive energy that no matter how I feel before a class, I always leave uplifted and energised.
Thank you so much Kirsty for changing my life.” Wendy x

Please bring…

  • A yoga mat (if you have one)
  • A blanket for the deep relaxation
  • A bottle of water

It’s best to practice on an empty stomach so try not to eat for 2 hours before the class starts

Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes

Go right into Woodland Road off Park Row, then turn right into Cantock’s Close…keep going into Medical Avenue, at the T-junction at end turn left then follow round bend, then right again through school gates ….and park in school playground (for free).

Or if you start on St Michaels Hill, come to the bottom of the hill, turn right onto Perry Road, and find ZeroDegrees, on the other side of the road is a narrow little lane called Lower Church Lane, drive up and turn left at the top, then right at the end and right again into the car park.

“I’m a newcomer to Kundalini, and after a taster elsewhere was overjoyed at the serendipity of finding a class where I live. After my first class with Kirsty I was totally hooked, in a way that I never have been with any class of any art, craft or sport before. I feel now like it’s the practice for me, for life. Kirsty exudes happiness and enthusiasm and it’s infectious and uplifting. I particularly like her introductions to the theme of the practice, her depths of understanding and knowledge, her clear explanations and reminders – setting the context, and helping to tune out of mad-land and tune into the class and particularly the self, where the encouragement to close your eyes and concentrate on your own particular practice and development helps foster a lovely relaxed, non-comparative atmosphere. Equally she explains those breathing exercises inappropriate for those with certain conditions, alternative postures where the usual one is uncomfortable, and gently encourages commitment to finishing the kriya or particular exercise but supports the struggles that practitioners sometimes have. Furthermore she heartily welcomes feedback, questions and clarifications that really encourages a regular practice. I’ve been inspired to practise daily because it’s so well held – supported, encouraged and resourced – Kirsty provides crib sheets and playlists and answers questions also by email and social media. Another aspect of her classes that makes them such a joy are the music she plays, the sound quality of the player she uses, her lighting in the room, and the occasional gong-bath she facilitates. Kirsty is a lovely, happy, nurturing soul and her classes are an absolute joy. I have a chronic health condition but always feel so much better – more energetic, more vital, more joyful – when I go. Kirsty teaches 2 classes now where I live but I would be over the moon to go 7 times a week if I could. I totally and utterly recommend her classes. Bless you and thank you Kirsty.” Derek
