Breathe like Darth Vader
Awaken your inner Darth Vader and eradicate the EGO. If you haven't heard of Kundalini Yoga before, then you are probably thinking to yourselves what are you guys talking about? Has the Sydney Yoga Collective lost the plot? What does Darth Vader have to do with anything yoga-related? Will, we have to chant - "Luke, I am your father!"
Well no, we haven't lost the plot and no, you won't be chanting "Luke, I am your father!" However, we do suggest that you brace yourselves, as you are about to go on a wild ride and go down the crazy Kundalini Yoga rabbit hole.
Before we do just that, we bet that you are still thinking, what does Darth Vader have to do with any of this? Well, in Kundalini, you will become well acquainted with the Darth Vader breathing noise, it is also known as breath of fire via your nose, and my goodness it is NOT EASY....
Intrigued? Of course, you are... Rather than us try to explain Kundalini to you and this strange breathing technique, Russell Brand (what a legend) has gone ahead and broken it down for you in this 5-minute video.
We caught up recently with Russell and we talked about the importance of removing blocks and focussing on the now.
Kundalini Yoga is called the yoga of awareness. It's about going within, releasing areas where there are blocks and moving through them to create space in body, mind and energy.
The first time you try it, it can be a little intimidating, with the breathing and the chanting, but we assure you, at the end of your first class, you will have felt a shift.
Something, you can't quite place your finger on.
Something has changed. Changed for the better.
Follow that. Do that again.
