“If you can breathe, you can do it”
The world is rapidly changing: the refrain of our times. The pressure to catch up, keep up, overtake, is on us all. Modern technology surrounds us, and can, increasingly, dictate, and derail, the way in which we live our lives.
We have all woken up with the feeling that you do not have the energy to face the day. Most of us suffer from mild anxiety at some time, and some of us have full-blown panic attacks! It is common to feel out of control of our own lives. Perhaps you have massive mood swings and feel unable to control your own reactions to situations.
Many carry on like this, fire-fighting, just holding back the next crisis.
In a world where we need to be mentally robust, Kundalini Yoga will teach you the techniques by which you can access your own energetic self and acquire a mental clarity, and then go out into the world with a new focus and vitality.
Kundalini Yoga - The Journey
An Ancient Philosophy symbiotic with our time
Kundalini Yoga is the root of all yoga practices and was traditionally known as the householder's yoga. It was brought to the West in the 1960’s by Yogi Bhajan, an Indian born Sikh, and it is his interpretation of the discipline that is practised today.
Kundalini is the term for the life force that lies within us all. The practice of Kundalini Yoga enables you to manage your body and mind through exercise, meditation and controlled breathing techniques. The kriyas and meditations that are a large part of the practice stimulate this energy, whilst the work on breathing control (pranayama) and bandha (yogic locks) help to control the flow and direction of this energy. The practice of Kundalini will show you how you can draw on this source of power, and use it to your own benefit.
To put it simply, the practice of Kundalini can have a positive effect on every aspect of your life:
- Slows the ageing process
- Stops mood swings
- Balances the glandular and nervous system
- Reduces blood pressure and calms the heart
- Aids digestion
- Reduces anxiety
- Activates creativity
- Prevents alzheimer's and other forms of dementia
- Develops mindfulness
Kundalini Yoga is made up of specific yoga sets (kriyas). Each kriya is targeted at a specific area of the body.
Kundalini Yoga is accessible to all abilities, if you can breathe, you can do it. Bring clarity, confidence, focus and flexibility to your life. More importantly keep your intuition, your command centre, activated. At the end of the day, this is what guides us..........Sat Nam (truth is my identity).
If you can breathe, you can do it!
Gemma Billington - My Journey
I am an artist, a painter, printmaker and artistic photographer. I was born in Killorglin, County Kerry in the South West of Ireland but am now living in the beautiful countryside of West Berkshire. I still try to spend as much of my spare time as possible in County Kerry. I am a mother of three, two sons and a daughter.
In my life as an artist, I have had successful solo exhibitions, in both London and Ireland, over several years.
Emotionally speaking, I have been to high places and low places. I have, in the past, experienced true happiness and real despair. When I found that wonderful state of happiness I was unable to maintain it, until I discovered Kundalini Yoga!
For several years I have been a practitioner of Kundalini Yoga. It has, quite literally, changed my life. I am a trained Kundalini Teacher, a Reiki Healer and a Gong Vibrational Therapist.
I am dedicated to a daily practice. This does not mean that I spend hours each day, but I do make sure that I spend some time each day on my practice. Even a few moments on those busy days, can make the world of difference.
Speaking on a personal level, I have learnt that Kundalini has taught me to use the body and breath together to create an internal environment that brings your mind into a state of clarity and calm. This state of calm brings with it a natural happiness and an increase in vitality. With this mental clarity comes the confidence that you can face the challenges that life often brings.
Jaima Kundalini Yoga - The Space
The Jaima Kundalini Space is situated in the heart of rural West Berkshire.
The retreats and workshops take place in a beautiful, rambling Georgian farmhouse and a lovingly restored, timbered barn overlooking the peaceful valley of the River Pang.
The groups are small, always informal, and discussion is encouraged.
My four hour workshops always commence at 9.00am with a brief introductory session into the practices of Kundalini Yoga. This is followed by breathing techniques (Pranayama), Kundalini Yoga exercises, deep relaxation, meditation, chant and gong vibrational therapy. I try to follow a set routine, but I work intuitively with each group.
B & B accommodation is available for those wishing to stay the night before workshops.

If you are looking for an one-to-one session, please be in touch.
One to One Sessions
I also offer for individual sessions for anyone who, for whatever reason, is unwilling to put themselves in a group workshop situation. This might appeal to you if are going through a particularly difficult moment in your life, and are feeling vulnerable. Illness and stress can create havoc with energy levels, and it might be less daunting to have an individual workshop, with a Kundalini programme personalised to your own specific requirements. Contact me and I will be happy to talk you through any questions you may have.
