“Kundalini Yoga came to me at a time in my life when I had reached my metaphysical bottom. I had spent years suffering in silence while doing my best to cope with symptoms I, at the time, had no language for. I later learned that my experiences could be summed up with four words—anxiety, depression and body dysmorphia. For years, my mind was in a complete state of chaos; getting more than 3 hours of sleep a night was a privilege that came once in a blue moon; and having enough energy to get myself out of bed the next morning was never a guarantee. I developed unhealthy obsessions about my body and abused it in ways that left me feeling ashamed, isolated, and completely powerless.
After a year of practicing Kundalini Yoga I finally learned how to love myself and my body—unapologetically and unconditionally. I gained the courage to explore traumatic experiences in my life and the inspiration and willingness to work through the aftermath of these experiences.
Kundalini Yoga is medicine—for my mind, my body, and my soul. My mind has never been clearer. My nervous system has never been stronger. And I’ve never felt more at peace or connected to myself, to others and to the divine in my entire life.
People spend entire lifetimes trying to find that special pill—that quick fix—that will help them become the people they’ve always dreamed of being. Kundalini Yoga is as close as you’ll get to that experience. It has inspired me to change my life in ways I never imagined possible and I know it will do the same for you.”
