Written by James Langton

As we make the transition from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age, many people are struggling to free themselves from old patterns and institute new ones.

As yogis, we have many tools—yoga postures & meditations, foods, diets—that can help us to make positive changes.

Many habits we develop, especially around food, are unconscious. They develop in the first three chakras, in the first three years of life.

If we don’t, when necessary, correct these underlying patterns that inhabit the psyche, we continue to manifest the same habits, which lead to the same behaviors that inevitably lead to the same outcomes.

Cleansing is a way to help sensitize us to our patterns and enable us to use those patterns in a healthy way to build vitality.

The first step in the art of cleansing is the awareness that change is necessary.

This usually occurs when we begin to notice that things aren’t right. This can be a single symptom like headaches, a more complex set of symptoms, or even a state of disease as measured by Western medicine—“dis-ease” as Yogi Bhajan used to say.

The second step is the recognition that we are willing to go through the process of change.
Next, we need to consider what we would like to work on.
We need to think about alkalizing the body, cleansing the liver, making sure that the large intestine is eliminating efficiently, and saturating our body with prana.

Join me to work on the organs the most support the system keeping you alive and healthy!

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is described as the yoga of awareness, it uses specific combinations of asanas (posture), pranayam (breathing), mantra and deep meditation to connect mind, body and soul.

Regular practice brings a sense of wholeness from where we can move forward and realise our highest potential.

All levels welcome!

About Maitri Shakti Kaur

Maitri Shakti Kaur is a devoted, dynamic and joyful teacher.

Maitri has been practising many styles of Yoga and Meditation including Kundalini, Iyengar, Jivan mukte, Restorative, Yin and Dru Yoga; exploring the art of mindfulness from the Zen Buddhist teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh and deepening her experience with 5 Rhythms which is a form of active meditation created by Gabrielle Roth.

Her interest on personal evolution brought her recently to take part of a new technique course called, the Metamorphic Touch, a simple and effective awakening massage that allows clients to experience their natural state of being letting go of mental and physical limitations.

Maitri feels her journey has reached a sort of completion attending “Beyond Addiction The Yogic Path to Recovery” in September 2015- 2016, taught and mentored by Sad Dharam Kaur.
She is now supporting students with her knowledge and compassionate approach coming from her personal experience with a basic ayurvedic prospective and yogic lifestyle.

Maitri has trained as a Kundalini Yoga teacher with Sky in 2011-12, taught and mentored by Guru Dharam Kalsa.

In 2011 she has successfully completed a course with Siri Arti Kaur, founder of“Starchild”(Yoga for children age 4 to 16), bringing a creative and fun aspect to her teaching which not only children benefitted from but probably even more so her adult students. She complemented this training with the“Clown Therapy”course in 2009 for children recovering in hospital.

She has also been a certified Reiki 1 facilitator-healer since 2008 and attended level 2 in 2016 in Portugal.

Kundalini yoga has been the most powerful tool she has come across in her journey of self discovery through all the various disciplines she practiced and trained on, for the personal experience it gave her to inspire others in the same path.

Maitri has offered her service at a rehab centre – “Crouston Oak Lodge” and “The Passage” – a charities for homeless where she share the teaching to help on recovering from addiction with alcohol and drugs.

Complementing her yoga practice, she also teach how to integrate Ayurvedic nutrition into her students daily lives to improve the functioning of the systems in the physical, mental and spiritual body.

It is her wish that every living being, young or old, experience using these tools to heal themselves and to celebrate the infinite potential and truth that lies within each of us.
