What is change for you? What is the fear, and what is the joy in change? Change is happening with every breath, and in every moment. In this workshop we will explore change, with the tools of Kundalini Yoga, Gong & the guidance of Maria & Patricia.
This will also be the very last workshop in Brighton with the collaboration Maria & Patricia before Maria moves to Barcelona in September. (Her intention is to come back for workshops though ;)).
We will also remind ourselves of what’s always here, and what’s never changing, beyond the changes
You are so welcome to this long afternoons where Maria’s Kundalini Yoga and Patricia’s Gong Meditation merge to create a unique session. Together they explore Kundalini Yoga (including chanting, movements, breathing and meditation) with a one-hour sound healing meditation in the vibrations of multiple high-quality gongs, singing bowls, voice, a shruti box, and various bells, rattles, shakers, and chimes.
Helping us connect with our body, mind and spirit, Kundalini yoga works with Kundalini energy, Prana, our life energy. It helps us dissolve blockages and imbalances, so our prana can flow freely and we can heal physically and emotionally. Kundalini yoga was for a long time a secret practice, but in 1969 Yogi Bhajan began to teach it openly throughout the world, as he knew what a powerful tool Kundalini yoga is for the challenges of our time.
Creating a nurturing and transformational space, a Gong Meditation is a form of Sound Healing. At its heart is the sound and vibration of the gong, which works as a tool to balance the physical body, mind, emotions, energetic body, and spirit. Known as the sound of total resonance, the sound of the gong gives the body a sonic massage helping to: stimulate circulation, activate the parasympathetic nervous system; slow down brainwaves and connect with meditative states and insights; let go of emotional ‘burdens’; clear energetic debris; and expand awareness.
ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Maria Varanpal is a Kundalini Yoga teacher who loves to combine the transforming possibilities of a Yoga of awareness with Sound healing. She wants to create a space where we can be conscious right now and through that welcoming life as a gift with the beautiful diversity of emotions, thoughts, and sensations.
Patricia Carlota is a Gong Practitioner who is passionate about sharing the sound of the Gong and related sound tools. Her Sound Healing practice specialises in the use of high quality large gongs, singing bowls, the voice, shruti box, shamanic percussion, chimes and bells. She is interred in connecting to intuition and heart space, exploring perception, and expanding consciousness.

I loved the way the heavenly sounds you made suspended me in an alternate place, giving me distance and space, opening me up to view normal everyday life from a different perspective. The Kundalini Yoga is also fascinating and I'm keen to do some more.
Thank you Maria and Patricia for hosting such a wonderful session on a rainy Saturday. It was a truly magical 3 hours and I left feeling love tingling through my fingertips.
