Zephyr Yoga News

I’m a busy bunny the next few months so I wanted to take some time to write a few words down and share some upcoming adventures with you all.

Images from internet search of Kumbh Mela

Kumbh Mela 2019

I have gifted myself time to study with my teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker and his teacher Pandit Rajmani Tigunait at the Himalayan Institute in Allahabad & Khajuraho. I have always studied with my teachers in London or in the States, however have never set foot in India to receive the teachings. So I find myself being ‘baptised by fire’ in the centre of one of the largest festivals in the world. I am really going into this blind, with simple instructions to practice my prescribed mantra for this unique retreat and to prepare for the most intense experience. I will be camping on the Himalayan Institute campus, daily practices which I have yet to know what they entail and excursions to the festival to celebrate with my fellow 150 million other pilgrims. Kumbh Mela happens every 12 years and is an auspicious festival that Hindus & Yogis gather to bathe in the sacred waters of the Ganges. Kumbha means pot and Mela means gathering. So, it is said that the symbolism of filling our vessel with the scared nectar, amrita, of the ancient Ganges at this celestial convergence is the most powerful and potent energy to create lasting transformation. I know one way or another it will have a huge impact on my life as a woman, mother, wife, teacher and most of all a student. I will return with tails to share with you. I will be away from 31 January to the 25 February. Wonderful teachers will be covering my classes in London so do support them.

Triyoga Talks to Zephyr Wildman

Triyoga has created a podcast called Triyoga Talks which has been a great addition to our community by supporting students and teachers off the mat. I was asked to talk about my life, how I have interpreted the teachings of Yoga and my part as a student to use these practices to keep my life “clean” as well as how to use this to be of service to my students. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to get on your mat and apply the deeper teachings of yoga to your experience. TRIYOGA TALKS PODCAST

I teach at Triyoga Ealing Wednesdays 5:25-5:55pm Meditation, 6-7:15pm Vinyasa Yoga. Saturdays 9:30-11am Vinyasa Yoga, 11:15-12pm Meditation. Go to www.triyoga.co.uk to book.

Our Mala Classes at The Life Centre

Mondays 5:30-6:30pm with Zephyr Wildman at The Life Centre Notting Hill

“At The Life Centre we are always looking at ways to better support our local communities. With that in mind, we are proud and excited to announce a new partnership with the charity Ourmala, that will help us better serve the wider yoga community.

Ourmala to help refugees and asylum-seekers recover from the atrocities they have experienced and rebuild their lives. Yoga is at the heart of their approach. For the cost of £10, two refugees or asylum seekers can attend a yoga class, enjoy a hot lunch and attend an English class.

From Monday 3 April two of our regularly scheduled classes will become Yoga for Ourmala classes – this means that every week, your practice will contribute to yoga classes for 50 asylum seekers and refugees so that they can experience the healing power of yoga for themselves. You can read more about some of the people that Ourmala has helped here.

The Yoga for Ourmala classes are:

Yoga All Levels with Lisa Sanfilippo on Wednesdays 18.30 – 19.45 at Islington.

Vinyasa Yoga level 1-2 with Zephyr Wildman on Mondays 17.30 – 18.30 at Notting Hill.

The proceeds of these classes will benefit Ourmala, however the style and format of the classes will remain the same as always.”
