WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY
"Yoga has incredible mental, emotional and physical health benefits; including: overcoming chronic pain, rehabilitating spinal and joint injuries, easing the symptoms of past Trauma, (1994, Van Der Kolk, M.D.) and creating an inner sense of stability and peace.
You don't have to be super fit or flexible to join my classes. You will become gradually more flexible in mind and body, learning techniques to help to you choose how you respond to thoughts and emotions. Your 'interoceptive abilities' or the awareness of the sensations & emotional landscape inside your body, will deepen. With this, you will become more present and intuitive in your daily life."
- Dani, Founder of Open to Change Yoga.
Dani conducted the class in a calm and inclusive manner. By the inclusive – I mean that I had never done Kundalini yoga class before and she explained exactly what we were doing and why. Also I didn’t feel comfortable to sit on the floor so she gave options for students who weren’t flexible (me) but not drawing attention to me – just giving options.
I felt a very relaxed state of mind and body. Going through the class, I could feel the change of energy and vibration around me and I was enjoying going deeper into the meditation. I could feel connected to my body in a way I have not felt before. I felt in bliss and was grinning during and after the class. There was just inner happiness which was coming out of me. It was a real block of time when I felt “connected” in the true sense of the word to myself, being able to somehow access the third eye or some inner self, which I did not know existed.
I liked the way Dani described each part of the process very clearly with the reason/ benefit for it. For example; she explained how to move the top of the back – so that the shoulders should lead the back, rather the back lead the shoulders. I have done this exercise before and have mentally wrestled with how to do this and I felt that I should try to focus on moving the back and not simply move the shoulders, but this is the first time I have heard an instructor speak about this specifically, so that was great!
