Bhakti Yoga: Through Love to The Self

British Wheel of Yoga Inservice Training Day

Bhakti Yoga is a search for the Self, through Love. It awakens the heart centre, refining our perceptions and unveiling the true nature of reality. This is the Wisdom of the Heart which transcends the limited egocentric intellect, opening up the possibility of Yoga union with the Absolute, Brahman. The path and process of opening up the heart centre is called Bhakti Yoga.”

The day will focus on:
• opening and sensitising the Heart Chakra
• working with simple techniques which will help us to transform our stress, boost our resilience, empower higher performance and improve health and well-being
• learning to chant, and then reflecting on, Chapter 12 of the Bhagavad Gita, which deals with the subject of Bhakti
• awakening Bhakti through mantra, kirtana, Yoga Nidra, and meditation

Gong Bath

The Gong is a sacred and ancient instrument which has been used for thousands of years for deep healing, rejuvenation and transformation.

Physically, the resonance produced releases tension and blocks in the body, stimulates the glandular system and helps balance the nervous system. Mentally, the sound of the Gong helps clean out the subconscious mind, rewriting old patterns, slows down brain waves, and aids in reaching Shuniya – a place of stillness within ourselves where we can access our innate wisdom.

Playing the Gong after Kundalini Yoga is especially beneficial as the body is even more receptive to the healing vibrations it carries. The whole cellular system can be regenerated at a very deep level which can be profoundly restorative, a perfect antidote to today’s stressful lifestyles.

“The Gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind, there is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind, the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It’s the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga

During the session, we will practise a simple Kriya to stretch, energise and prepare the body, followed by a meditation to clear and quieten the mind. There will be a short relaxation then the Gong will be played.

You should wear loose, comfortable clothing which is easy to move and stretch in, and bring water to drink. Mats and blankets will be supplied. Please note that Gong baths are not recommended during pregnancy.
