Namaste,

The  kundalini yoga retreat was just great.  The vibration held over the weekend was in alignment with the teachings.  Every one had a radiant time and already looking forward to the next retreat. 

Check out the web page under Gallery for all the photos.

The transition to the new venues for all the classes is going well, although having one venue to teach from is in my asking.

I would like to share the challenge I experience and ask that all students be mindful of this as it affects us both. 

 Currently  I have fifteen minutes to set up the yoga room, and a couple of the venues require sweeping.  After class I have fifteen minutes to repack and vacate the room and that timing is somewhat short so I need to move promptly to be ready .  At Prema Yoga Studio I was always available before and after class for chats with one or many students. This freedom is no longer as available and I do want to  honour your questions so I can give  you my total awareness.  Once I have packed up after class I’m available to anyone that wants to talk .  The other option is arranging a time to talk, either by SMS or phone call.  Please note I don’t check my e-mails daily. 

Love

The Studio where I teach yoga from is called “Prema”.

Prema is a Sanskrit word which means “Love”.

The wiktionary from Transwiki describes it as follows:

Holy and pure love, devoid of egoism. It flows from the Anahata chakra.

Shanti Shanti Shanti

I thought I would give a short translation of the words “Wahe Guru”:

Waheguru (Punjabi: ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ, vāhigurū or ਵਾਹਗੁਰੂ, vāhgurū; also transliterated Vahiguru) It is the term most often used in Sikhism to refer to God, the Supreme Being or the creator of all. It means “The Wonderful Teacher” in the Punjabi language. ‘Wah’ translates to wonder and Guru (Sanskrit: गुरु), is a term denoting ‘teacher’.

Above translation from the follwing wiki:

Welcome to my blog, Sat Nam Wahe Guru. I will be adding posts talking about Kundalini and Hatha Yoga. My website has been updated and I will add this blog to the site.  Please fell free to leave any comments.

I would like to start with a brief explanation of the words “Sat Nam”:

Satnam (Gurmukhī script: ਸਤਿਨਾਮੁ) is a title given to God Almighty. It was first used in Vaishnava context. Kabir composed the word Satnam from “Satya” (True) and “Naam” (Name).Tulsidas (writer of the Ghata Ramayana) writes, “Saint Tulsidas states that the Satnam is superior both to Brahm and Ram.”

It is the first word that appears in the Sikh sacred scripture called the Guru Granth Sahib. It is part of the Gurbani shabad called Mool Mantra which is repeated daily by all Sikhs. This word succeeds the word “Ek-onkar” which means “There is only One God”. The word “Satnam” means that “God’s Name is Truth”.

A Gursikh (or Guru’s Sikh) is one who follows the Sikh Guru’s teachings only. The Word Satnam has profound and blissful understanding for a Gursikh. A Gursikh would research and find the truth about Satnam by praying to the Guru for guidance as enshrines and illuminates the Guru Granth Sahib.

This brief explanation was from a wiki at the following address http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satnam

Hope everyone has a Peaceful Easter and I will see you next week.

Love
