Man to Man with Hari Karam Singh

27 April, 2-5pm

JOY Yoga Dalston • 27D Dalston Lane • London E8 3DF

What is it to be a Man? …in relation to a Woman? …in relation to other Men? …in family and community? …active in the World? These aren’t easy topics to tackle in these sensitive times, yet self-denial of our core nature as souls-in-bodies weakens us, and denies us the satisfaction of a harmonious life. Yet if we can understand our nature as Men and dare to live it, honourably and courageously, then we can achieve contentment in our lives and peace in our relationships. Collectively we can begin to redress the many ills of corrupted masculinity in our world.

Let’s come together as Men to practice specifically tailored yoga kriyas and meditations. We will learn from teachers past and present and from our own collective wisdom through open discussion. This workshop is for men only. Cost: donation. Any amount is welcome.

 

Sat Nam Rasayan Practice

28 April, 1-2pm

JOY Yoga Dalston • 27D Dalston Lane • London E8 3DF

To maintain your study of Sat Nam Rasayan, regular practice is encouraged. JOY hosts monthly practice sessions. We'll meditate together and practice healing on one another. There'll be no instruction during these sessions. Students who wish to practice SNR healing must have taken a minimum of one day of training with Guru Dev Singh, Jiwan Mukta Singh, or another Level 3 Sat Nam Rasayan teacher. Patients who would like a mini healing treatment are welcome as well. £8

 

Kundalini Jedi Training with Jag Kaley

4 May, 5:30-8pm

JOY Yoga Dalston • 27D Dalston Lane • London E8 3DF

Fear is one of the greatest problems in life. Almost everyone is scared of something. Fears are normal and having them is part of being human. But a mind that is caught in fear lives in confusion, in conflict, and can be violent, distorted, and aggressive. As a Jedi it’s not so much about curing fear, but allowing the force to flow and letting fear cure you. When you develop the right relationship with fear and uncertainty, fear can be the finger pointing toward everything in need of healing in your life. 

In this Kundalini Jedi Warrior workshop, we’ll use powerful kundalini meditations and kriyas to work with the fear within and transform the dark into confidence, courage, and trust in the light side of the Force. £25

 

Addiction Recovery: Mastering Stress and Craving

11 May, 1-5pm

JOY Yoga Dalston • 27D Dalston Lane • London E8 3DF

What is the response of the body and mind to stressors? What do we crave for when in our daily routine? How Kundalini Yoga can support in those moments? Craving is a fascinating topic that touches everybody from teenagers, adults to an elderly age, but when does it actually become a problem? When a treat can be called addiction? What's the relationship with healthy stress and where is the fine line when stressors begin to deteriorate our mental health?

Stress can interfere with many parts of our lives: it increases work absenteeism, can lead to relationship difficulties and interpersonal strain, and can increase the risk of turning to artificial relaxation such as drugs and alcohol. Chronic stress also increases the risk of developing certain serious physical illnesses. The intention is to bring awareness to our actions and thoughts, creating a new relationship with ourselves, to bring support and kindness in our everyday lives with healthy habits to constantly regenerate the system. Kundalini Yoga is the tool that can allow you to get to know yourself in these moments, supporting and overcoming challenges.
