AMAKABA is a vision for collective healing honoring the art and science of the earth, the body and the cosmos through art, science and spirituality.
AMAKABA offers Kundalini Yoga classes to share the healing technology of yoga with underserved communities in French Guiana. We understand our collective responsibility to support the most vulnerable and commit to building inclusive communities and solidarity networks, through yoga & dance classes, a community kitchen, astronomical observations, and forest walks.
We held two weekly classes for the refugee and asylum seeker communities in Cayenne (discontinued since the epidemic). We now offer two open access classes for all, every weekend via zoom.
AMAKABA Kundalini Yoga is part of the global campaign
#Social Justice is a Spiritual Practice, initiated by our collaborators KAR - Kundalini Africa Rising.
Kundalini Yoga is a technology of transformation. It combines the use of pranayama (breath work), asanas (physical postures), mudras (hand seals), drishti (eye postures), meditation (mind posture) and mantra (chanting and recitation of seed sounds).
The purpose of yoga is to experience union between ourself and infinity. Each one of us is infinite and creative in potential but limited by our state of consciousness and the culture of domination enforced in this material reality. Yoga assists us in becoming more conscious so we can change attitudes to overcome the mental limits of the finite self and the injustice of our societies.
Kundalini Yoga is a technology of awareness. The practice increases our level of self awareness, helping us to enhance our perception and experience of our being, balancing our physical body, mind, and soul. Thus, allowing us to deeply know ourselves, in complete honesty, holding space for the best and worst indiscriminately; and eventually grow to become fully aware and conscious human beings, in service of our communities, lands, ancestors and coming generations.
As a result of the current situation we are moving our classes online. All are welcome to attend our classes. * Please note times are in GTM time.
KUNDALINI FOR IMMUNITY
Taking into considerations the biological, emotional, energetic and ancestral dimension of immunity, the technology of Kundalini Yoga can support us through these times to strengthen our immune system and build vitality to face our challenges with grace.
Becoming a mother is a time of intense transformation. Through the teachings of Kundalini Yoga, one can harness the sacred power of motherhood that lies within, and receive the wisdom of mothers through the ages, from the cosmic womb to ours. Pregnancy brings new challenges, which can be met with grace with the support of your breath, awareness and community. Connect with your changing body, nourish your relationship with your child, and exchange with a community of mothers, while learning the art of conscious pregnancy.
