Event description
The Great British Kundalini Yoga Festival is a five-day yoga event that is packed full of music, kundalini yoga, good food and healing.

About this Event

Come join us for the annual Great British Kundalini Yoga Festival in the majestic All Saints Pastoral Centre a former convent in St Alban’s just outside of London. GBKYF is a beautiful annual event, run by a small team of volunteers and committed yogis. It’s a sanctuary for the soul and a respite from the commercial overdrive of our modern world. No big sponsors, just lots of friendly community and activities to nourish the mind, body and spirit.

At the festival you can indulge in a feast of Kundalini Yoga experiences ranging from yoga and meditation workshops to music, chanting, dancing and men’s and women’s circles. Families are very welcome and activities will be arranged for children and teenagers. There will be delicious vegan food, a bazaar, a healing therapy area and plenty of Yogi Tea on tap. Each morning you’ll have the option of beginning bright and early for Aquarian Sadhana (a daily morning practice) and every evening there will be a special event, all inclusive in the ticket price.

We’re thrilled to invite you and look forward to serving you at the festival. With great love,

The Great British Kundalini Yoga Festival Team

About Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is known as the “mother of all yogas”. It incorporates all of the elements that were originally part of the ancient practice of yoga including asana (posture), mudra (gesture), mantra (sound), meditation and kriya (subtle energy work). Together these techniques form a potent practice through which we can activate latent energy in the body to heal our physical and emotional wounds and to expand our consciousness. Kundalini Yoga gives us practical tools to deal with the challenges of modern living, to elevate ourselves out of our mundane, everyday troubles into the blissful experience of Now.

2019 Theme

This year, we also celebrate 50 years of the Kundalini Yoga teachings in the West as brought to us by Yogi Bhajan. We’ll have a legacy room showcasing the history of 3HO, the organisation he created, and in the many festival events we’ll explore the theme of “What is our own legacy that we wish to leave behind?”
