This space is dedicated to offering the potent medicines of Kundalini & KunYin Yogas, Sacred Sound & embodied experiences that offer balm to the body-mind.
It is crafted as a medicine bowl– a container- for the profound yogic practices that offer us a pathway to healing. KunYin Medicine is the offering of teacher- Holly Cole: it is the refined vision of eight years of teaching yoga, yogic philosophy & meditation.
Tell me about KunYin Medicine
KunYin Medicine is rooted in a fusion of two energy streams- Kundalini and Yin energies.
Kundalini offers us the sword-like metallic energy of clarity, purity, strength; the eternal blue sky that overarches the unfolding of time & space. The warrior-sage archetype. The symbol of the sword that cuts through ignorance.
Yin is the energy of earthing, grounding, rooting, being-ness; the gentle earth that binds & twines & invites us to be at home in our skin, with our breath, in our bodies- accepting of Selves, regardless of our ‘achievements’ in this game of life. The archetype of the Great Mother. For me, the symbol of the bowl- the receptacle.
These polarities dance and entwine to create a ‘medicine’ that offers us a real way forward in these turbulent times. Interestingly, the word ‘Kun’ also refers, in Arabic, to the manifesting power of Divine Energy. So, words of power that can inspire real & lasting change- the way true medicine does. Come & sample the medicine for yourself: it has provided me with profound healing over the years. IT WORKS.
About Your Teacher, Holly Cole
KunYin Medicine is my passion. I am an educator, student, yogi in the making, philosopher, writer and pilgrim of sorts. I am driven by the fire of knowing that each one of us is capable of so much more creativity: we have vast potential, if only we can tap it, trust it and believe in it.
I have worked in education for the past 13 years, teaching both adults & children in a variety of contexts- from school teaching, art therapy to yogic education. I believe that we are here to come to know ourselves; to explore our light and darkness, to fall in love with our uniqueness & to honour the gifts that we carry. This is the path of individuation.
Yoga offers a road-map for that journey of self-knowledge. It gifts us with practical tools for managing & harnessing our energy; techniques to deal with crises; practices to help us bloom into our truest expression of Selfhood. It offers us an holistic life-path, should it choose us.
The yoga form that I work with primarily is Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. I have begun to fuse Yin Yoga into my Kundalini practices- an experiment that has flowered as KunYin Yoga.
