Breathwork and Meditation

Meditation helps develop a relationship with the mind. When we learn how to breathe consciously and direct the flow of prana, we can calm our minds and master all aspects of our lives.

Meditation is often misunderstood as relaxation. It's actually activity for the mind – controlled and directed activity to reconnect to infinity. It's when you empty yourself and let the Universe come to you. We meditate to become intuitive.


Meditation helps develop a relationship with the mind, breath by breath. Kundalini Yoga and Qigong both employ a wide range of energy management techniques or pranayam.  Pranayam uses the rhythm and depth of the breath to effect and manage different energy states of health, consciousness, and emotion.


Breath is life energy itself. The mind follows the breath. While, prana or qi ('chi'), the life force energy that flows through all living beings, goes where thoughts are.


Meditation is also the art of breaking habits, to purify the mind and to take care of the day-to-day things.

The greatest gift of meditation is nothing – in a state of nothingness then everything is possible. Applying pranayam and bandhas (energetic locks) creates a state of stillness, or shuniya . Planting a seed or bij mantra into this stillness creates a new rhythm or pattern, where the kundalini flows. The conscious placement of sound into the physical body is called nyasa – an ancient ritual practised by the rishis (yogic sages).


Meditation is not about manufacturing visions. It’s a discipline for the mind. You are not your thoughts. You are the one who is aware of your thoughts – you're the observer.


Positive and negative minds will seesaw – you then feel what has to be, when the neutral mind comes into play. The negative mind, however, is not a bad thing. It’s there to protect us and act as a filter – asking us ‘if not that, then what?’


During meditation, conscious contact can be made with the soul so that:


  • True knowledge of self can be achieved

  • The soul can maintain its control over the ego

  • You become more intuitive – where the heart rules, so that the soul’s messages can be received and felt in everyday life

Mudra therapy 

Our hands are an extension of our heart. The simple pleasure of holding a mudra can be a welcome hug from the Universe when needed to nourish mind, body and soul.

A mudra is a hand or finger position that locks and guides energy flow and nerve reflexes to the brain. Also known as ‘seals’ or ‘gestures’, mudras play a crucial role in moving prana – our life force energy and are a fundamental tool in Kundalini Yoga practice.


Pre-language we communicated through gestures as a way to interact with nature and the world around us. Mudras are also code for the brain – to communicate within, not just outside of ourselves.

In my practical and playful sessions you’ll experience:

  • Different types of mudras

  • How to practice mudras

  • Using mudras to support healing and personal transformation

When we consciously combine mudras with mantras the effects of both the mudra and the mantra are accelerated and multiplied.
