Transformation Retreat

Emerge with the Courage of your Alter -ego

Friday 05 April  – Sunday 07 April 2024

Imagine...

Pressing pause and slipping away to a fantasy place that makes you feel safe enough to explore your body and you move into flow with it...​

Noticing the bird song around you, you ground into nature and your natural state of wild bliss...

 

You're wearing clothing you hardly ever get to wear and you're in moments of glee when silken dance props become an extension of your body and your "flaws" fall away and you soar in graceful flight like a fresh butterfly trusts her wings for the very first time.. and she dances with with the winds

Imagine you learn how to transform your skin and you see another side of yourself you've had tucked away, and she confidently remembers how to play, and you laugh and enjoy your completely fantastical self...

And the joy of this feeling echos in the months to come, elevating your drive, your motivation, relationships, career, and your sexual pleasure... 

A solid crew of women join and support you integrating this pleasurefilled energy into your life and the most FUN expression of yourself ever

 

Imagine leaving SO fulfilled and in your own Sensual Power that this isn't just a weekend... it's your new way of living...

Kundalini Yoga 'Rules' 101: Do what feels good...

We present ancient yogic technologies for your benefit, by designing classes that align with the energies of nature - the Moon, the Seasons, and Planetary movements at the time - meaning our classes will vary in energy level to offer your physical and energetic bodies a well-rounded balance of instruction for the ebbs and flows, monthly, seasonally and annually.  

 

There's absolutely no requirement to be bendy or flexible for the practice. We are not in Kundalini Yoga class to focus on getting a fit or bendy body. This will happen the more you attend however, we practice Kundalini yoga to unfurl our tight bodies, unblock trapped energy, and allow the flow of 'life energy' - which is what Kundalini is - to fuel the engine of our soul.

 

We work with our nervous system, training it to relax our totality (mind body spirit) and enjoy the present moment, deal with what comes gracefully, and give it the true strength of knowing when to actually switch to 'saving us' from real harm.

 

We recalibrate our glandular systems, aiding in their flushing of the body and the regulation of the release of fresh hormones.

 

We balance the polarities of our energy flow and tame the ego so our life path flows in alignment with who we truly are and what is good for us, our surroundings, and the universe. 

 

Destiny comes to fruition, dreams become reality, and motivation becomes natural. It truly is a powerful practice. Ask anyone who has practiced for a term..

 

Come to class with an open mind and do what feels good for You.

There's never pressure to stretch deep into some unattainable Instagram pose (p.s. we never do headstands or inversions).

You are the master of Your body and the days of trying to imitate a teacher are dissolving with so many other outdated ideas.

Your practice is to reconnect with how Your body feels and looks to You, with the guidance of a teacher to keep you safe and to keep the practice pure and beneficial. Every body looks different in the same pose and here at Wild Rhythm we hope you feel comfortable that it's all Perfectly Imperfect and OK.

 

Kundalini yoga is an active form of yoga that awakens the Kundalini (shakti) energy through,

  • Repetitive movement asana - moving poses - but not vinyasa or flow yoga

  • Mantra - sacred verse

  • Naad Yoga - sound or chanting healing, try not be afraid like I was - it's very liberating

  • Pranayam - breath focus

  • Mudra - sacred ways to hold the body

  • Bandhas - ways to "lock" energy in the body

  • Drishti - which is where you focus your eyes

 

The way these classes are put together is referred to as a 'Yoga Kriya' which is a complete sacred yoga set with a purpose. 

 

Check out a 40 second video of a Yoga Kriya to give you an idea of what you might do in class 


The chanting in KY is spoken in Gurmuki, a close relative of Sanskrit Gurmuki. The various syllable sounds in Gurmuki activate energy in the heart, head, and belly (our 3 brains) in different combinations with different purposes.

When we bring in an Asana - posture or move - we can divert or point the desired messages to different parts of the body, either to raise or settle energy, as one example.

We may invite the energy to cleanse an area or stimulate it, through the nervous system or Meridians in Chinese medicine or Nadis in Indian script.

 

There are literally thousands of pathways and intersections just waiting for you to engage with them and the great thing is you need not understand any of it for it to work its divine purpose!

Naomi Hunt

"Thanks so much for your mindful guidance in todays yoga session. I felt so much calmer today and could more easily tune in to patience and compassion. I feel like I've shifted some grief, feel settled. So much gratitude for you and the teachings you are sharing."

Jasmine Millward

"The work I do with Amy is a little piece of magic in my total wellbeing. Walk in, weighed down, walk out a better version of me. It’s subtle but strong… powerful but not overwhelming."

Diana & Raigk

My husband and I have been doing Kundalini Yoga with Amy for about half a year, We absolutely love it. It helped us tremendously with flexibility, managing back pain, and other little pain related issues. Also mentally we both feel more relaxed and content since joining. The scenery and atmosphere in her studio is just beautiful, a place to relax.

A big thank you Amy!
