Kundalini is the primordial life energy that lies dormant in a human, near the base of the spine. Kundalini Yoga is an ancient science, which was initially passed from master to disciple, exclusively and originates from the Indian subcontinent.
In the 60's Yogi Bhajan brought this knowledge to the West initiating its dissemination in Europe and North America. Today Kundalini Yoga is practiced in all continents and is expanding constantly.

The gong is an ancient sacred instrument of healing and transformation.
It generates deep and powerful sound waves, giving the feeling of bathing your whole being in healing vibration. The impact of the vibration resonates on different levels. On a physical level it releases tension and blocks in the body. It stimulates the endocrine system together with the nervous system, and as a result our Prana (vital force) will increase, establishing a new balance in our life. On a mental level, it washes our subconscious mind, it cuts the flow of thoughts and releases the stress that comes with it, to put us in contact with our true self. On the emotional level the sound vibration act as a deep cellular massage that shakes and releases emotional blockages stored in the memory of our cells.
The flow of sound created by the gong, carries us into a deep state of relaxation. This state awakens the neutral mind so that our inner wisdom of self healing can occur.

At twenty years old the first radical choice arrived, it was time to leave Italy and start to wonder around, carefree, guided by the fragrance of new experiences.
It was in 2010, while walking in park in north London that I stumbled upon a Kundalini Yoga class. Until that moment I did not know what I was looking for, but I was sure that I had found it. So I began to follow this new fragrance called Truth. There is no need to say how many times I took the wrong direction, but in the end, is there a better advisor than your own mistakes?
Thanks to them, in 2012 I ended up in Portugal in the Ashram of the Kundalini Yoga Master Shiv Charan Singh, where I lived for a year and a half. The time I spent there brought a lot of personal growth and closed a cycle of searching, by becoming a Kundalini Yoga Teacher.
