What students are saying …
“This is a totally different experience of yoga. It is a practice that engages completely with both your body and mind. Fantastic”
“Thank you for another wonderful Kundalini Yoga session – Your sessions really are a harmonious and enlightening experience, it really is so nice to find something that can free the mind and body. I would highly recommend giving Kundalini yoga a go – especially for those who are looking to re-set and make a fresh start, the body tends to hold onto a lot of unnecessary stuff which Kundalini releases leaving you feeling re-charged and an over all sense of wellbeing! It’s also a great physical workout suitable for all abilities as you can work at your own pace”
“Dana is a wise, intuitive woman who teaches beautiful potent Kundalini classes that cater for all abilities. She is sensitive to the needs of her students and approaches her work with humility and humour. Her classes have the potential to be transformative. I cannot recommend her highly enough”. … S.M
“I would whole heartedly recommend Darshan’s Kundalini Yoga Class. Every section of the class is carefully constructed to enable the students to experience the most amazing mind, body and spiritual journey. The practice is steeped in spiritual history and the essence of this, coupled with the whole body science is delivered simply and concisely by a very knowledgeable yogi”.
“If you need some good quality ‘me time’, take your body and mind on this beautiful journey, with like-minded people. Relax, revitalise, reboot and rediscover yourself. It is very special. Thank you “
“Discovering kundalini yoga with Dana has been a truly enlightening and transformative experience. I was a complete novice to yoga but Dana not only expertly leads the physical practice but also the philosophical, ethereal and sometimes cosmic aspects of this amazing yoga form. Every practice is completely different and is always thought-provoking, challenging, inspirational and fun! Dana is a very special teacher and is effortlessly welcoming and talented in creating a warm and safe space. The online classes have given much strength through an unusual and challenging year and Dana’s gentle guiding and sharing spirit has been a true source of comfort and joy in the last 18 months.” …..Leigh
“I have been attending kundalini yoga with Darshan for around 6 months and it is a huge honour to write a review, as the practice has helped and even changed my life in amazing ways. It has helped me manage anxiety which as its worst has been debilitating. It has given me clarity of mind, grounding and self-awareness to name a few! Not only during the class but also throughout the following week.
Darshan has also given me a tool box of ‘go to’ meditations, mindsets and practices to repeat at home as and when required. There has been a noticeable difference throughout my whole body. I’m more aware of my physical strengths and weaknesses. My body and general health has certainly improved.
I have had amazing personal experiences during my kundalini yoga classes with Darshan. The most prominent being an unblocking sensation in my ear that gradually happened through 4-5 sessions. During the movement and meditations my right ear would begin to crackle, echo and pop! As I continued week after week the sensations increased to the point that one evening after a class, I felt extremely dizzy. The next morning my head and ears felt so clear and alive – I haven’t felt any of the sensations since. Sinus and sore jaw issue which had been ongoing has also cleared.
I would wholeheartedly recommend kundalini yoga with Darshan to anyone regardless of age and health. It is a truly magical experience of which I’m grateful to have as part of my life.” …Vanessa S.
“I first went to Darshan for shiatsu treatment in the hope it would help the symptoms of fibromyalgia that I have suffered from for 28 years. I hoped that it might alleviate some of the physical symptoms, including the sheer exhaustion. However, I can honestly say that in my wildest dreams, I could not have imagined the absolutely astounding effect it has had on me – not just physically, mentally and emotionally, but spiritually as well. I feel as if I have suddenly woken up after years of being barely awake.
I have now started going to the kundalini yoga classes that Darshan runs and it has turned my whole life around. I feel like a different person. It is an incredibly spiritual, moving experience – the mantra music so amazingly powerful – you just feel your whole life is opening up in front of you after years of being shut away behind closed doors.
My soul, my spirit feels free, light and enlightened and I feel as if I am emerging into the person I was supposed to be, or even a better version of that person. And it is all thanks to Darshan, for helping me, and for showing me how to find the path to get back to Me.”..
