Integrity Awareness Circle
Sadly, just like the rest of our society, also our Kundalini yoga community has been confronted with facts of transgressive behaviour. As “Ambassadors for integrity in yoga” we come together and aim for a better future. We want to keep integrity alive and commit to contribute to build for our yoga community a positive and constructive path towards integrity.
One of our tools is a guided intervision group from which we are glad to offer a taste at the yoga festival.
What gets us there? What stops us from it?
Because we believe that together, in group, we can learn from each other.
Because there are no ready-made rules to pick up, but only experiences and wisdom to share.
Therefore we will create a space to reflect upon the “sacred space” itself. This “sacred space” that everyone has within.
It is exactly from this space that as teachers we want to guide our students and teach with integrity.
We sit down in circle, tune in and start with an “awareness” exercise. This exercise is done individually and in group and followed by a sharing round.
Each one chooses if and what to share within the group .
One concrete question is picked from that round and together we explore it further in detail. This is a way to learn from each other before closing up with a guided meditation on sacred space.

As a therapist i work a lot with people who suffer from CVS, trauma, chronic pain, burn-out,….
I experience daily the beauty of working with kundalini yoga as a way to transform. I also experience the beauty of wholebody focusing. Wholebody focusing helps to listen deeply to the own needs of the body.
Needs that are often under the surface for a lot of my clients. They often stop doing yoga and want to move their bodies on the other hand.
It made me more conscious as a kundalini teacher to shift the attention of pushing people trough something to invite people to listen to a deeper voice than the ego that allready knows how fast, how much and even wich pose uplifts/ transform in that given time.
I want to give you as kundalini yoga teachers an experience of listen deeply and act from that inner voice we all have. For you, for your students who maybe also suffer from that lack of connection with that inner knowing.
So many ways to heaven 😊

“I am a Soul (1), incarnated in time (2) and space (3), with a chance to become conscious (4).” 1+2+3+4 = 10 – Radiant 10-in-1 being – Ek Ong Kar Sat Gurprasaad. A journey once started needs to go full circle.
Life can be seen as a kriya to end karma. The Soul is on a journey, a learning journey.
Knowing the numbers can help guide your Soul on its journey through time and space.
The numbers 1 to 9 are aspects of your consciousness. They correspond to the 1st through 9th Spiritual Bodies known from Kundalini Yoga. Learning the language of the numbers can open up these aspects of your consciousness.
The specific numbers of your date of birth can give you clues to the lessons that your Soul volunteered for in this lifetime. The numbers can help you zoom out and see the bigger picture of what’s going on in your life. Help you find the treasure in the mud of your past, drop what you don’t need anymore, liberate your Self from repetitive patterns… Transform karma to dharma.
Learn to calculate your five numbers based on your date of birth.
Learn about the qualities of the 9 numbers, karmic as well as dharmic.
Let the magic of numbers awaken dormant qualities in you and guide you on your journey to unfold your potential, towards the best version of you – a 10-in-1 Radiant Being.

The purpose of my workshop is to help people to release their creativity through their body and to flow freely and gracefully in the life.
They will increase their vitality, their self confidence and their happiness.
Thanks to their motion on the sound of Music, and thanks to their voice in singing mantra.
I will guide them , they will practice coherent exercises with flowing or static postures. I will propose also different celestial communication. People will learn to use their body, their voice, and synchronise their respiration, they will be aware of their infinite potential. They will release and liberate themselves from locking , or shyness approach they have from former patterns. They will bring out their grace and their creativity.
The specifics angle of my workshop is to free up a flow of creativity with music and sounds, and provide a well being feeling , thanks to the synchronisation of movement, they will clear their inner power and life force energy.

Let’s vibrate change in this class/workshop. Let’s vibrate this huge portal of the year 2021 to enhance the energies linked to number 5.
This year 5 holds a strong vibrational frequency of freedom-seeking, rebellion, adaptability, pioneering, innovation, adventure, independence, and most of all: change . One that signifies that inevitable change is always upon us… and it is best to be flexible in nature.
The power to be as adaptable as the number five is within us all.
The kriya will be specific to the 5th body, which is the physical body. The temple through which we can give birth to a new consciousness and embody the new values. The body then becomes the teacher, the guru.
The kriya will be followed by a meditation on the five elements and pranic energy.

‘The world doesn’t need stronger or more intelligent people, it needs more conscious people.’
The objective of my workshop is to explore 4 aspects of breathwork that are easy to integrate to our daily lives and to give participants the opportunity to experience their benefits.
These four aspects are:
Breath awareness and conscious breathing
The importance of nasal breathing
The mechanisms behind coherent breathing
The meaning of the pauses
By the end of this workshop, you will have practiced 4 breathing techniques (Breath awareness, Brahmari, Coherent breathing and Box breathing and how, depending on our intention, they can affect us on different dimensions: physical, emotional and spiritual. By focusing on the latter, we can use breathwork as the fastest, most efficient way to connect to the Oneness we are all part of.
‘Of all the positive changes a person can operate, learning to master the breath is probably the most efficient way to develop a higher level of consciousness and improve health, increase vitality and the feeling to be connected to our own life.’ (The Aquarian Teacher, Yogi Bhajan)

This is a workshop for women or anyone who is interested in the power of the radiant woman. By universal law woman is the nucleus of this universe, the source of beginning and the container for what wants to be birthed on this planet. But for a long time the power of women has been misunderstood, neglected and at times even abused. This has had a profound effect on how we as women see and treat ourselves. And it is of vital importance to restore the balance between the feminine and masculine energies. As woman we hold the creative principle of this universe, but only if we are willing to hold ourselves fully and completely in the light of nobility, strength and grace will we be able to live as radiant women.
We don’t need make up, we are already made up.
But can we love our selves as we are?
Can we relax in the knowledge of our power?
Can we live our truth and essence in everything we do?
In this workshop we will dive deep in the yogic teachings of the holy ma. Set yourselves up for a powerful talk and a transformational yoga practice which will bring you to a deep experience of your holy womanhood.

This divine alchemy will entrain the body, mind and Higher Self into deep meditation and a healing Soul Sound journey with the Gongs.
Participants will benefit from the frequencies of various Gongs that are designed to connect, transform, heal and rejuvenate our physical and emotional bodies thereby providing a gateway to an optimal state of wellbeing. The gongs also support our prana - our vital force through increased blood and lymph activity.
A Soul Sound Gong Immersion is a unique combination of yoga techniques and sound therapy in which the healing sounds of the gongs bathe and message the participants with sustained waves of sound. During a Gong Immersion participants typically experience a deep sense of connection, quietening of mental chatter, deep meditative space allowing for a sense of expanded awareness, higher consciousness and healing. Other common experiences are physical unwinding - letting go, mental clarity, emotional release and pain relief.
Each experience is individual.
