What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga is the combined practice of cleansing breaths, joyful movement, and chanting sounds, which enhances your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Kundalini Yoga combines meditation practices, breathing techniques, and physical postures that are designed to re-connect your mind and body, which will make you feel more balanced and relaxed.

The typical structure of a Kundalini Yoga class is made up of chanting, a sequence of postures, and a closing meditation. Although the classes will consist of these three components, each class will always be different.

Regular practice of Kundalini Yoga can strengthen your body, improve your flexibility, and decrease your levels of stress and anxiety. You will leave a Yoga Marlborough class with enhanced internal peace and clarity of mind.


“My motivation to join the class was to learn more about spirituality and yoga. I understood they went together, but had not found a practice that gave me that until I went to Nicky’s class.”
