The Kundalini Garden is a sacred space created within the community of Byfleet, Surrey.
Tucked away at the bottom of our family garden we teach ancient yogic practices which support and promote conscious living.
The studio is a sanctuary from the world outside. A comfortable, safe place for reflection and contemplation, as the truth of who you are unfolds around you within the silence and the sounds of nature.
The yogic practices we teach are thousands of years old and are for everyone.
Once secret, these practices are now available for all. Everyone is welcome and we are blessed with a wonderful community of students who support each other in a nurturing environment of self-discovery.
The studio’s unique set up allows for personal attention to be given to each person who visits, creating opportunities for discussion, deeper learning and sharing.
We provide mats, pillows and blankets. The space also benefits from air conditioning, so you are always guaranteed a pleasant environment to practice within.

Ann-Marie is a newly qualified teacher who is also a devoted yogini. In addition, to the wider aspects of yoga, Ann-Marie has a special interest in yogic postures and lifestyle. Ann-Marie naturally excels in the physical aspects of asana and supports this with a firm belief in a balanced lifestyle approach.
Ann-Marie’s unique approach is one where one size does not fit all, and we must all search for our own answers with regards to lifestyle, food and exercise.
Ann-Marie chose to follow the path of yoga 3 years ago after struggling with the stress of being a working mum juggling all the elements of the household, children and work. The breathing techniques learnt from yoga has helped her to relax, uplift and strengthen her mind.
The meditation has helped calm her anxiety and help her remain positive and the posture work has helped with flexibility and strength. Ann-Marie’s aim is to help and empower other women to achieve an inner sense of calmness and peace.
Kundalini Yoga is a yoga of awareness or a technology of human consciousness. Taking us from the finite to the infinite.
It is classified as a Raj Yoga or Royal Yoga. This type of yoga was normally reserved for royalty or those in high places. However, as a society, we have now been blessed with the opportunity to have these yogic practices and tools at our fingertips.
The science of Kundalini Yoga includes the philosophy of the Ashtanga path of Yoga, as expounded by Pantajali.
A typical Kundalini Yoga class includes yogic postures, pranayama, meditation, mantra and relaxation.
The classes are for all and we promote the ethos that we are the best we can be rather than comparing ourselves to others.
The gong is an ancient instrument which has been used for many years to heal and transform on many levels.
Everything is one and all things can be affected by vibration (sound). The gong and its profound sound work on subtle planes of existence which can leads us into mystical states, provide answers, shift energetic blockages or simply relax us completely.
The sound of the gong takes us back to that primal space at the beginning of time, where we can merge with deep silence and the truth behind the world of form.
Every gong bath is a very personal experience for those attending. The experience changes with each gong bath, so each event is unique and special.
Each class is around 90 minutes and currently we can accommodate 5 students per class (due to COVID 19), normally we can hold 8.
Our Monday/Wednesday classes are led by Jonny and our Friday Women's Yoga class by Ann-Marie.
Each class is £10 in the studio and £8 (online - Monday's Only). This can be paid via BACS or in person. We offer a block of 6 classes for £55 and a block of 10 for £90. For individual classes booked a minimum of 48 hour cancellations are required.
For block bookings; please be advised that unless a class is cancelled, attendance at classes sequentially is the responsibility of the student.
Classes are suitable for all levels and abilities. All are welcome.

"This yoga for me is absolutely amazing, it helps with your posture, body and mind. It releases energy and that’s what I needed and it’s working. I have back pain and from doing the yoga it’s helped so much from doing a few simple exercises a day which I had no idea of. Thanks to Jonny I now love Monday evening sessions."
