The Power of Woman

We have one last hope. If woman can change and rise to her grace, everything will be well.
— Yogi Bhajan
Khalsa Woman by Gurumustuk Singh

THE POWER OF WOMAN

Yogi Bhajan taught extensively just to women. At essence, he taught that if women can rise to their potential, all will be well in this world. Indeed, an empowered woman has the capacity to heal, inspire, and elevate all of those around her. Conversely, when a woman falls, nations fall.

As Yogi Bhajan taught, a woman has tremendous strength. Her power lies not in her physical beauty but in her intuition, her intelligence, her grace, her ability to face adversity with a smile. Yogi Bhajan said that, compared to a man, a woman has the capacity to be 16 times more intelligent, 32 times more intuitive, but 8 times more insecure. This is her downfall. Insecurity and self-doubt draw a woman further away from her strengths and encourage self-negating behavior. However, using the technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation, women can drop neuroses and connect with a great power within.

Each month, JOY hosts a workshop featuring a different aspect of Yogi Bhajan’s extensive teachings for women. As well, there is a weekly yoga class just for women. In these classes and workshops, we explore some of the tools and techniques Yogi Bhajan offered for women’s empowerment while practicing an array of Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations.

These classes and workshops are for women only. Yoginis of all levels of experience are welcome.

WISDOM

Saturday November 4, 10AM-12:30PM at Clerkenwellbeing

with Sat Shakti Kaur

In a Kundalini Yoga class, from the moment we tune in with the Adi Mantra, we reconnect with an innate wisdom. And through the practice of kriyas and meditations, we go deeper into discovering our own creative potential and a deep well of knowledge and intuitive understanding. We are born with this divine intelligence, but for must of us, we start to disconnect from it in infancy. Perhaps driven by the best of intentions, parents, friends, and teachers, discourage us from believing in our own innate wisdom. ("What could you know, you're just a child!" is a common refrain.) 

While women have the capacity to be 16 times more intelligent and intuitive than a man, cultural values that prioritize a woman's appearance over her looks create a further disconnect between her and her wisdom. In this class, we'll practice kriyas and meditations to help reconnect with the deep well of knowledge and understanding within. We'll reconnect with our innate wisdom.

COMPASSION

Saturday December 16, 10AM-12:30PM at Clerkenwellbeing

with Sat Shakti Kaur

As women, we have a tremendous capacity for compassion.  In contrast, we have a tendency to get caught up in a pattern of comparing and competing. Becoming judgmental and negative, we turn on our sisters and we turn on ourselves. Such a mindset doesn't serve us well. However, when we nurture self-love, we can embrace our strengths and accept our weaknesses with compassion. Once we experience self-compassion, we start to feel more compassion for others. In this workshop, we'll cultivate compassion, practicing kriyas and meditations that promote self-love and an open heart.
