In this pre-recorded, 75 minute class, we work through a Kundalini Global yoga series called Languish in the Luxury.
The intention for the class is around the concept of waiting.
We can spend our entire lives waiting:
Waiting to get through a stressful period,
waiting for it to get better,
waiting for our luck to change,
waiting for things to be as we imagine they should be.
We can set ourselves up to be forever lost to our perceptions of what could be, shaped by negative responses to what has come before.
We can think ‘when I’m thinner’ ‘when I can afford that…’ ‘when my children are older’ and never, ever, notice the small moments, littered through our days, that could be enormously enriching… if only we could be present enough to notice them.
On purchase, you will be emailed the link to watch and, if you choose to, download the video.
This yoga series works strongly on the abdominal region, with many postures designed to massage and create movement here, through both the compression of the navel, the pumping of the breath, and through stretching out the abdomen through postures such as Bow.
You may wish to have a few cushions, a blanket, and any props that you know work for you with Bow. Alternates are offered for the postures that many find particularly challenging.

The passage I read from Douglas Coupland at the start, from his book Life After God, is as follows:
“My mind then wandered. I thought of this: I thought of how every day each of us experiences a few little moments that have just a bit more resonance than other moments—we hear a word that sticks in our mind—or maybe we have a small experience that pulls us out of ourselves, if only briefly—we share a hotel elevator with a bride in her veils, say, or a stranger gives us a piece of bread to feed to the mallard ducks in the lagoon; a small child starts a conversation with us in a Dairy Queen—or we have an episode like the one I had with the M&M cars back at the Husky station.
And if we were to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection—certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. We would realize that we have been having another life altogether; one we didn’t even know was going on inside us. And maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real—this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. So just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives.”
The classes available to purchase in the section of my website are recordings from my regular, live, Tuesday evening, class on Zoom.
Joining classes live is fun. Why not give it a try?
