I’m sure I’ve tried this before, the whole vibe of a blog, a real live ‘as it’s happening’ diary. And this is an attempt to open a window on my experiences as I present this Vibrate At Your Highest Frequency week here in gorgeous Goa.
This is a 7 day programme of kundalini yoga and healing which works on the chakras, a chakra a day to really bring people into alignment with their real true selves. I believe that balancing the charkra is the key to happiness and that’s the basis of all my teaching and healing secrets.
Today was mostly about settling in, buying flowers, building altars, making the rooms ever more gorgeous with more flowers and welcome gifts and creating one of my favourite spaces EVER for teaching kundalini yoga. Many, many dips in the awesome pool! Its suuuuuper hot!
Everybody arrived and we began with our first class this evening to focus in the root chakra, to focus on really connecting to the earth and what a wonderful and truly magical piece of earth it is here in mystical India. The gorgeous class started out in the light and finished by candlelight and was followed by a long and deep gong bath and relaxation and then we went for our root chakra dinner.
It’s a gift to be here with our chef, the wonderful Sue, who is a fellow foodie and we are both super interested in working with food as medicine and each meal is tailored to match the chakra we are working on. Such a lovely light energy at the table and well as always SUCH a gorgeous group of students.
Everyone is loving Goa and after a beautiful meal and dessert followed with Sue’s warming homemade yogi tea its time for bed.
Big wahe guru and deepest gratitude for this wonderful day. I LOVE my work and I am always super excited to begin this journey.
Day 2 - 2nd Chakra Day
What a joy to wake up and feel this excited to begin day 2!
We have all settled in now and what a connection between the group. It’s always interesting to observe the people who come together for these weeks, and it really does make me believe that the microcosm is in the macrocosm because they always fit together so well.
Today we worked on the second chakra so in the morning class we focused on the kidneys and the release of fear from the kidneys where fear can hide out. I love that kriya because you really really feel the detox-ing happening – literally.
We followed class with breakfast in the garden. It’s fruits are so so soooo tasty here.
The morning workshops are always different on these weeks, depending on the group really so after a big check in and an exploration of the root and 2 chakras we were working on we practiced a wonderful 11 minute meditation and floated over to lunch.
Everyone is feeling pretty tired today and this is generally what happens as we do go in quite hard with the classes so after the gorgeous stuffed aubergines and delicious salad we all reclined at the pool, swam or napped for the afternoon. Our evening session was just divine – so many times I had goosebumps! I always know when there is less of me and more of god because I get so many goosebumps! The sounds of the birds in harmony with the gong and the beautiful soft evening light is just gorgeous.
Dinner was so so fresh and followed by raw carrot cake and I am smiling as I write this tucked up in bed.
3rd chakra - SOLAR PLEXUS DAY
Love to wake up to a symphony of birds here in Goa every morning, birds and cockrels - but the birds win out on the harmonies!
Been a strong day today working on the solar plexus, working on the release of emotions that are not serving, working on coming back to centre, working on bringing in the peace and the power to the 3rd chakra. Both classes today really opened the navel centre and we practiced the amazing Osho Kundalini Meditation during the workshop. I adore this meditation and for sure it’s a great tool for this 3rd chakra day to really really support the processes the students are in and they all had profound experiences. Some tears today as we move through the releases going on. I love to see people getting to the point of the release of tears … it all works!
I am so happy to have the wonderful Annabel James here sharing her powerful breathwork journey therapy and also Chi Nai Tsang. Annabel and I work together in Ibiza and I see such huge shifts happen for people with her sessions. Also excited to have Olivia Wood here offering her super therapeutic massage and so we have the additional therapies happening in the afternoons for those who aren’t in the pool!
My favourite dinner so far tonight! The most divine cauliflower dish with courgetti spaghetti and salad … although the lunch was also simply divine and we had fresh moringua from the garden with a mango curry. Loving the food!
Am absolutely loving this week and shed a little tear while teaching this evenings class because the energy in the room was just sooo incredibly gorgeous and in this room I also have the best view.
Seem to be doing ok on the blog front now and dare I say I am actually enjoying it! “See” you tomorrow
Day 4 - HEART CENTRE DAY
Ahh my favourite! The heart chakra day!
This morning we took our practice over to the pristine sands of Talpona as a surprise for our yogis. It was pure and simply divine to practice the kriya to open the heart centre there on the beach, shaded by the palms, facing out to see with about 30 eagles flying over head. Just Bliss!
We practiced the kriya for self love in the workshop which you find here (recorded in Ibiza). Its definitely a favourite of mine and it just really really works. Self love … the most important love of all.
I had a beautiful massage myself from Olivia this afternoon and again this evenings class left me speechless and covered in goosebumps as we practiced the opportunity and green energy set. Everyone is glowing here now and really feeling EVERYTHING. The vibes are just wonderful at mealtimes and the food continues to delight. The heart chakra day always is a big turning point in the week and well you know LOVE is always the answer.
Day 5 - THROAT CHAKRA DAY
We started off laughing a lot this morning .. such a good way to open up the throat chakra and when we do a little laughter yoga we see how infectious it is to laugh. We begin to move the energy up now and with this comes the opening up of the truth, our truths our sat nam.
This evenings session was just beautiful as we had mantra singing down by the river for out evening practice. THE best way to open up the energy at the throat, and as we bathed there in the golden light of the sunset we sang our hearts out – literally. Wonderful evening followed by beautiful dinner and as I write this I feel the mantras vibrating in my whole body. Vibrating my sat nam. There is nothing more I can ask for in this moment.
Day 6 - THIRD EYE DAY
Well we are all starting to feel absolutely amazing here in Goa! Super deep class this morning focusing on opening and stimulating the third eye centre. Super powerful energy in the room and well we are well and truly underway now to starting to vibrate at our highest frequencies. When we are vibrating at this frequency we simply and purely FEEL it in every cell in the body, and it FEELS SOOOO GOOD.
We had an exceptional afternoon where we sailed down the river and out into the sea then arriving on the beach at Palolem we swapped boats and were sailed down another river where we say literally hundreds of huge birds of prey, we saw so many gorgeous little kingfishers and sooo many beautiful egrets, then we sailed back home.
I led this afternoon in total silence and we really tuned into the senses, into the third eye and observed the feelings and the energy and then we came back to a beautiful candle lit class where we completed the day with the divine meditation to see the unseen. Lots of super strong experience here for all the group this evening and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner before floating up to bed. Such a wonderful flow now and everyone is absolutely glowing. I love my job! And its just such an honour to allow all these blessings to pour down and I am so humbled by what happens in this process each and every time. So it’s a big WAHE GURU moment for me tonight. Hard to believe tomorrow is the last day … staying here present in the moment and sending out the big love from Goa.
Day 7 - CROWN CHAKRA DAY
Oooh the softness of this opening of the day today was beautiful. Interesting that on this the crown chakra day that we go back in so deeply into the physical practice in the morning kriya before we open up the 10th gate for the meditation. Incredibly strong experience for everyone. Wonderful workshop wrapping up everything and everyone is just feeling really really great. I observed so many big changes in all these students, and the general feedback was that they are really really really feeling their truth, really really feeling their sat nam and how great that is.
The evening class we had by candlelight and the softness and divinity in the room was truly palpable. What a journey this week is! Tears of joy this evening as I write this and just so much gratitude for this incredible technology of kundalini yoga and meditation.
People really HEAL THEMSELVES and I am humbled to facilitate that healing.
We completed this week with a gorgeous practice down by the river. The light was so golden and the vibe was just absolute joy and bliss … the true and absolute intention for the week here.
Thank to everyone who joined me. It’s been amazing and each and every time I go through this process it gets better and for that I am just full of gratitude. I also feel amazing and as I am here packing my bags I have a few days here on the beach before I re-pack and get myself back to beautiful Ibiza to begin the season. We will be back in Goa again next year 3 – 10 March and all our wonderful Ibiza retreat dates are HERE
