Bijay J. Anand

A Kundalini yoga teacher, certified by the Kundalini Research Institute, Los Angeles, Bijay has a holistic approach to health, as well as to the elusive word "happiness". The principle philosophy behind Bijay's teachings is love and its connection with the fourth chakra in our body called the Anāhata Chakra. Intertwined with his philosophy of love is the emphasis on a pure, organic and natural way of life.

Bijay’s tryst with yoga started 25 years ago. Blessed with an inquisitive mind, he exposed himself to various forms of yoga including Ashthanga Vinyasa and Hatha. But what really inspired him was the style, philosophy and teachings of Mr BK Iyengar.

His first experience with Kundalini Yoga was with one of the most acclaimed and revered Kundlini teachers, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa. The first 10 minutes of his exposure to this ancient science to awaken the Kundalini and cleanse the chakras moved him so deeply that he knew instantly that he had found what he had been searching for in his entire life.

Bijay is now one of the leading Kundalini Yoga teachers in the world, widely acclaimed and admired for his empathy and feelings driven approach to the science. He conducts Retreats and Wellness Programs based on Kundalini Yoga in India and across cities in Europe, the U.S. , Latin America, the Middle East and in the Asia Pacific Region. Bijay’s impactful wellness programs have touched the lives of thousands of participants across continents.

Zia Nath - Sacred Dances

Zia has been in the study of ancient sacred dances since 1994. Her journey started with Gurdjieff movements, Sufi dances and whirling. In 2006 she embraced the study of Odissi Indian Classical Dances and in 2008 originated her show Sufi Splendour, recently relaunched as Realms of Dance™, presenting Sacred Dance and Whirling Mandala, rendered to music and poetry of renowned artists and mystics.

Zia has performed at prestigious festivals and events across the country and internationally, sharing the mystique of our sacred heritage. The Sacred Dances workshop invokes the awareness of energy and forces that are continuously forming your body. It brings you to a state of continuing presence. The body is here now. Working with the body from a space of meditative awareness develops within us a ‘presence of being’.

In the practice of this work, your perceptions clarify; you become aware of the different qualities of energy that moves in your body, how it shifts and how it settles into coherency; an experience of one-ness; the dances do not end in themselves, they become a bridge to your higher consciousness.

Music and poetry, Rhythm and Stillness, Silent sitting are important elements that condition and refine our experiences.
