Maya Fiennes’ Sunday Plan

Maya Fiennes is a well respected Kundalini yoga practitioner and instructor, based in Los Angeles. Trained as a classical pianist, Maya first found Kundalini Yoga when she was looking for something to help calm her pre-performance nerves. She tried other forms of Yoga, but it was Kundalini Yoga that gave her the key to relaxing and controlling her emotions.

What exactly is Kundalini Yoga? Yogi Bhajan, who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1968, describes Kundalini as an ‘uncoiling of yourself to find your vitality and your potential’.  For Maya, it’s a brilliant and effective way to deal with today’s life stresses. ‘It was the one Yoga technique that gave me the simple, quick tools I needed to either de-stress, energise or calm myself. It’s about real life and dealing with its ups and downs’. Maya’s retreats and classes are in high demand in LA, but thankfully her classes are now available online, as are her range of DVD’s and her best selling book, ‘Yoga for Real Life’. 

Sunday

Theme: Finding Joy

At the heart of the teachings of Yogi Bhajan is the lesson of selflessness and the importance of giving back to the Universe all you receive from it.  That is when you experience true Joy!  Let life take its course.  Let the sunshine in, let the soul come alive, let go – Let God! This is joy.

Moving Yoga Mudra

This exercise will help you become more open to the benefits of meditation.

In easy pose, interlace the hands behind the base of the spine.  Begin Breath of Fire , quick inhale and exhale through the nose, and bend forwards into Yoga Mudra by bringing the arms up and head touching the ground. Then bring your head up. Continue to alternate positions and move at a steady pase in coordination with the breath for 2 minutes. When finished, release your hands and relax.
