"Integrating kundalini into my life has profoundly uplifted, transformed and enhanced my life in countless ways." Eliza, we love hearing about your new found passion for Kundalini and it's great having you in our classes and part of the KMYOGA community!

"Integrating kundalini into my life has profoundly uplifted, transformed and enhanced my life in countless ways. After experimenting with a number of practises, kundalini proved to be the most powerful across all aspects so I committed to it as a discipline.

 

It has helped me to develop my senses, refine my intuition, raise my energy, gain greater clarity, live more in the present and so much more. For those that can keep an open mind, I highly recommend incorporating this wonderful practise into your life. I am forever grateful for this technology and those who share the practise through teaching. Sat nam!

 “Being very far from my native Sweden and not knowing anyone in the southern hemisphere, I felt a little overwhelmed. A feeling that changed during my first class at KMYOGA.” We’re delighted that you enjoy Kundalini so much Filippa and wish you good luck on your travels to the next country. They will be lucky to have you!

 

“It has become a curious habit of mine to check out the local Kundalini yoga spot whenever I come to a new city. So when me and my Australian boyfriend moved to Sydney for five months after a year in New York, (where I was a regular at Golden Bridge) it didn’t take long before I signed up for the two weeks unlimited class pass at KMYOGA. “Wow, what a good deal!” and “Wow, what a beautiful space!” were my first impressions.

 

Being very far from my native Sweden and not knowing anyone in the southern hemisphere, I felt a little overwhelmed. A feeling that changed during my first class at KM where I found myself surrounded by friendly faces, doing the same thing that I’ve done so many times before. And of course the teacher knew my teacher in New York and suddenly the world’s huge distances felt much smaller! I came back the next day, the day after that, and kept on doing so for the rest of my time in Sydney. I became one of those yoga bums that seem to live in the studio…So what did I find at KMYOGA? A world class yoga studio with top gear like jade-yoga mats, a great gong, eye pillows, cozy blankets, a super sound system, complimentary yogi tea, filtered water tap, fresh flowers, comfy lounge areas etc. But more importantly, I met passionate teachers, each one with their own personal approach to the vast teachings. The whole experience elevated my practice and took it to the next level.”

Since beginning Kundalini I've published two books and I'm almost finished my third!

 

My friend and fellow yogi Phil Reichelt introduced me to kundalini yoga just over two years ago after I hurt my back practicing another style of yoga. I remember walking into Kathryn’s class for the first time and seeing all these people dressed in white with turbans on their head and thinking, ‘What on earth is going on here?’ I kept my eyes open the whole class thinking this to be the weirdest style of yoga I’d ever come across. And yet something clicked for me in that class and I was hooked. Almost from the moment I started practicing kundalini I began to feel more alive, more connected to myself and others, more in my body and more positive about life.

 

At the 11.11.11 workshop we were asked to set an intention. My intention was to be a published author. As a writer, I had always dreamed of one day publishing a book yet this was a dream I thought I would never have the discipline to see through to completion. Since beginning kundalini I’ve published two books and I’m almost finished my third. Discipline and perseverance are no longer a problem for me! Kundalini yoga has given me the belief in myself to be able create the things I want in my life while gracefully releasing the things I don’t want.

 

However possibly the greatest gift kundalini has given me has been the many amazing friendships I’ve made. My friends from yoga are my extended family who I not only practice yoga with but I’m lucky enough to share the adventures of life with. Having recently spent some time visiting some of the kundalini schools in Los Angeles I can honestly say that KMYOGA is world class and I feel very grateful to all the staff, teachers and students who contribute towards making it the incredible studio that it is today.’

Alina_KMYOGA_KUNDALINI TESTIMONIAL

‘I am grateful to be a part of KMYOGA community. I visited KMYOGA on one of their open days and all the way throughout my practice I felt that this is it, I found my new home! I signed up for the amazing 2 weeks special right away and seriously committed to my practice without knowing what to expect from it.

 

Luckily for me, it was just the beginning of Spring in Sydney and KMYOGA were about to start a 40 day Community Spring Cleanse, which I signed up for without any hesitation. 40 days to explore myself, to find my truth, and to transform. I was ready to transform! This was the time when I just listened to what my heart was telling me, without engaging the mind into a conversation and I am so glad I did! At the beginning, the cleanse brought out a lot of controversial emotions – anger, sadness, frustration, joy, grief and fear, however the amazing KMYOGA teachers were very supportive and encouraged me to trust the process and carry on.

 

Often we think that we know our bodies, our yoga practice, our minds, our families and friends. However, our bodies and the people we love are endlessly recreating themselves, born fresh in every breath. We are not the same as we were yesterday. Every breath we take is an opportunity to begin again. Nothing from the past can limit who we are or what we do right now…corporate world, spiritual world, entrepreneurial world, soul artists’ world, world travellers’ world – so many worlds, so many labels, so many realities. It can be really overwhelming at times. But the truth is only one. Everybody has their own unlabelled truth spanning through all these realities, their own journey. And I took this challenge to slow down to explore my true essence without expecting anything, without attaching myself to the end result, without labelling.

 

My focus was on an emotional and mental cleanse and clarity, on making decisions to move forward without chasing a million things at the same time, keeping up and letting go of everything that doesn’t serve me anymore.

 

Every morning I start with 11-minutes Sat Kriya meditation, which became more and more effortless and flowing. I can physically feel how negative emotions and inner voices leave my mind as I focus on stretching my arms, breathing and chanting SAT NAM at the same time. There is basically no space for the negative mind! I feel that my mind becomes lighter with each exhale. Now I can totally understand when they say emotions do have weight and as I release negative thoughts and create space I feel so much lighter, inspired and ready to create and attract things I want!

 

It has truly been an amazing experience. I feel a lot calmer, more self-aware physically, mentally and emotionally, more dedicated and 100% committed to continue my meditation practice for 90 days now! Thank you to all teachers, the staff and KMYOGA practitioners for being a part of my life’s journey! And special thanks for the hot and fresh herbal tea after each class! Sat Nam.’

Robert_Henry_KMYOGA_KUNDALINI_TESTIMONIAL

‘I love KMYOGA. I can’t wait for Sundays to come around. It has been like this since I connected to the very inclusive KMYOGA community at a retreat seventeen months ago. I love my Sunday class. Ninety minutes of joyful connectedness of mind, body and spirit. You know in this community we are all connected in the same way…in every cell of our beings. Our teacher connects us to the divine teacher within. Our focus, intention and attention inspire and expand back into our hearts where we recognise that what we are doing is so right to deliver divine perfect destiny.

 

In thine, mine, myself. Wahe Guru

Peace, love and light.’

‘After attending my first Kundalini Yoga class at the Bondi Yoga Festival on Sunday with Kathryn, I was inspired. I could feel the energy flowing throughout my body and the music and singing made the experience so dynamic and heart opening! I totally forgot about the cold and rainy weather.What a wonderful day it was!

 

I have downloaded the first chapter on Kundalini and Meditation techniques from Kathryn’s book and I am about to start my 40-day challenge.’

‘Wow what a pleasure to be a part of such a warm and welcoming community that is KMYOGA. I am on the 40 day cleanse and thoroughly enjoying the process. If you are looking for a way to empower yourself, strengthen yourself and improve your self-confidence I recommend the 40 day cleanse…and joining the studio. I urge you to be open and reserve judgement of the Kundalini Teachings…just trust the process and do what is asked of you. The Sat Kriya that I commit to for 11 minutes a day is having profound effects on my life.

 

I feel youthful and energised and the gritty days are all serving a purpose, helping me to navigate my funky moments with much more ease and an inner knowing that everything that I experience is for a reason. Kundalini has allowed me to access a part of me that I have been unconscious around. I am finding a union with myself for the very first time, which means I can hear and take notice when I get the messages from my body. I can stand in a less judgemental space because I am clearing the layers that life created and I dragged through everyday.

 

I find myself feeling child like – innocent, lacking judgement and feeling free and enjoying every day, a reset for my emotions!! A sincere thank you to Kathryn and all her team for creating a sacred space and for being the crucial step in allowing me to meet me for the very first time!’

“Someone told me Kundalini was an excellent way to fight anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. I had my first class of yoga in my life with Kundalini just four weeks ago and my life is starting to change. It is mind blowing. I started experiencing new levels of consciousness in my body. Not only do I feel more more balanced in my daily life and less anxious about the crazy world, but I have increased energy levels without the need for alcohol, caffeine or chocolate. Practicing the kriyas and chanting the mantras has created more balance and peace within me. I’m really thankful to KMYOGA, Kundalini and Naam for the spiritual awakening and my new life!”

"I came to KMYOGA and Kundalini through a friend who knew I may benefit from the 40 day cleanse.

 

I had lost my beautiful mother very suddenly and tragically almost one year previously and I was thinking about going into IVF again (after many failed attempts). Needless to say I was not in a very good place – very much ‘out of my body’ and holding a great deal of grief and sadness. I had tried Kundalini few times before, loved the serenity of the beautiful KM space and enjoyed it while still practicing some Hatha yoga, but I had not attended classes regularly. I was ready to try and get focussed for my last IVF attempt.

 

The 40 day cleanse was nothing short of a revelation. It left me grounded, positive and full of acceptance for whatever my future would hold – with or without a baby. It wasn’t ‘easy’ (yes, there were many tears) and it takes commitment, but it was incredibly enjoyable, enlightening and transformative. It certainly brought be to an understanding of Kundalini and what a powerful and incredible practice it is – it is nothing short of therapy. I was able to move through my grief in my own way knowing also that I had the support and guidance of Kathryn and the wonderful KM Yoga community. The community is a close one if you want that experience, it is open and accepting but it is never intrusive, it is throughly respectful of your personal journey. Whether you choose to engage with anyone else there or not, you can feel the positive energy, understanding and underlying support.

 

Oh yes … and I’m happy to report that I’m now 6 months pregnant!! An absolute blessing!”

“I had given up yoga a couple of years ago, then recently while on a path to clear blocks to success I was mixing Kinesiology with Kundalini yoga as a friend had suggested trying it. In one of Kathryn’s classes we were doing a clearing exercise and I started laughing because I could physically feel some emotional baggage leaving me. It was a great moment. I’m going to continue practicing to see where this new path takes me.”

“I’ve been practicing Kundalini for about 8 months and I’m starting to see some huge shifts in my body and mind. I feel joy and deep happiness when I’m practicing Kundalini yoga; it lifts me up and inspires me for more good work. I find the chanting and mantras so healing. I am finally finding my voice and opening my heart, allowing my connections to be stronger and truer – free to be me at long last! Kundalini Yoga has really inspired me to be more and to be the best I can be.”

“The 40-day cleanse has challenged every fibre of my being. What has amazed me most on this journey is every time I have felt dull, resistant, like I’ve nothing more to give, I have discovered a deep reserve of strength and resilience I didn’t know I had. This is a lasting impression…I feel like I can breathe deeper into my heart…I feel ignited! Thank you to the KM community – teachers, support staff and fellow students – for inspiring me to find a way through. SAT NAAM!”

‘After exploring and experimenting with a range of different yoga styles, I was so excited to find Jivamukti yoga during my first couple of weeks at KM Yoga. The pairing of dynamic Ashtanga sequences alongside sanskrit scripture, spirituality and chanting deeply resonates, leaving me emotionally and physically exhilarated after every class. Jivamukti yoga places a strong focus on compassion and kindness to all living things, and I feel this encourages me to be a more centred being both on and off my mat. I motivate any yogi’s I know to try Jivamukti, it is truly wonderful and absolutely needs to be shared.’

“The fact that my heart has righted itself after so many years of being severely out of step is quite extraordinary, the difference it makes to me is huge – not only psychologically knowing it is beating steadily is so reassuring, but the knock on effects are numerous, my stress levels have dropped right down, I sleep better, have much more energy, I feel a lift in my whole being, and my attitude is much more positive.”

‘After 7 years of yoga, Naam found me, and swiftly transformed myself and my life in the most incredible and beautiful of ways. Naam manifests miracles. For example – a constant, chronic neck pain I had been working on with yoga for 2 years simply disappeared after one of Anastasia’s classes. This practice will powerfully change you from within, and your life will evolve and unfold to your greater good accordingly. Anastasia is a teacher that I cannot speak highly enough of, she is truly a blessing. I trust her completely & the opportunity to learn from her is a gift that cannot be underestimated. Access this gift now, you will be eternally grateful that you did.’

“Jivamukti Yoga has dramatically helped me gain balance in my life. After every class I feel full of energy but at the same time I feel more grounded than when I started. I love how the teachers will assist you to experience a deeper feeling in the postures; I feel safe trying stronger postures because of their guidance. All of the teachers at KMYOGA offer something different to every practice, which inspires me to keep coming back to the mat for more”.

“I’ve now practiced Kundalini Yoga 10 days straight and I have to say my zest for life has sky rocketed! I feel so vibrant and energetic. Fears now manifest as excitement. Nervous energy is expelled during class, not outside unexpectedly. My determination is growing daily, my sleep has improved, as has my motivation and my own truths. I’m eating healthily and loving it…cooking more than usual, being creative…I even bought a pair of scales and baked! And my body doesn’t ache, fluidity is returning. I feel..liberated..like I can do anything, and why not!”

She takes great care of students who are new to Kundalini by explaining a lot and making everyone feel at ease, that’s much appreciated. I’m definitely coming back to her classes. “

“Before I started Kundalini I felt so tied up with work, study and life stresses bombarding my mind. I found it hard to switch off and this affected my focus, my reaction to those around me and most importantly my health (in other words I was completely over stimulated and strung out). Since practicing Kundalini with Kathryn I have adapted an awareness to myself and my surrounds which has created a profound change in both my physical and mental energy. My mind is less reactive, more still, and I feel I am now connected to the natural rhythms of earth – a synergy between my mind, body, soul, making it easier to wake up in the morning and multitask my way, stressless throughout the day. Kundalini practice really can be transformational. It took me a few classes to really open myself up, but once I did I reaped in the benefits quite rapidly. I am also grateful to Kathryn who leads such a beautiful practice, allowing us the opportunity to find a calm connected space in each and every class.”

“I heard about KMYOGA and decided to join what I now call this inspirational retreat. I instantly felt calmed by the environment but more importantly the humbleness and compassion of Linda (studio manager) and all the wonderful people whom I met throughout all my visits. I automatically felt a sense of belonging and connected not just to others but also to myself. KMYOGA trained me to manage my mind, to stay focused, to trust and have faith. I am so grateful to have found KMYOGA at a crucial time in my life. The teachings helped me realise my goals, more importantly it has brought me closer to my soul and is assisting me in my spiritual journey.”

“As a musician, I was already used to working with breath, creative energy and sound, but Kundalini has given me a range of new tools which I can use to specifically direct and refine this energy. The great thing for me is that the practice is very portable, and I have been successful in building up my own daily home (/hotel room!) routine that sustains me between classes. Not only has it given me renewed physical and mental energy and a sense of stability and trust through difficult times, but I have found I can use specific kriyas and meditations to affect my state of mind in critical situations. Nerves as a performing musician are a constant challenge, and in my own experience they are in fact very obstructive to reaching my musical and creative potential. I have found the various Kundalini exercises which calm and refocus the mind infinitely more effective than any self-help training I have undertaken, or any book I have read. A three minute meditation is often enough to reset from a negative, self-judging frame of mind and be free to release the inspiration within. The same can be said of the specific sets one can do to combat stress, fatigue, illness, and situations where there are conflicts of interest. (as is often the case in the ego-driven world of music!). It is like having a chest of magic spells at your disposal. They simply work!”

”Discovering a sacred space in pedestrian life, can be a miraculous feat but at KMYOGA that is just the way of daily life. The gifts that Kundalini practice can offer are delivered in such surprising and beautiful ways but for this novice, the radiant bursts of knowledge, the serenity, the joy in deep commitment to self and a loving dose of healing have opened up paths to creativity that as a writer and a sentient being, I have craved. Most of all Kundalini allows you to cultivate a sacred space within and that..you can always take with you. Sat Nam and thank you all at KMYOGA.”

“Kundalini Yoga is an amazing way to leave your known territory and explore the unknown that lives deep within you. A territory that is hard to reach in a conventional way. That is what this fantastic workshop with Kathryn means to me. Exploring myself in an unconventional way and be able to discover what is inside and what can trigger that desirable creativity that is hidden deep within. It is a very enjoyable experience.”
