KUNDALINI YOGA and meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan
In 1968 Yogi Bhajan came to the West and taught Kundalini Yoga openly for the first time in history. For thousands of years its practice was exclusive to rulers and sages in India for whom it brought greatness and prosperity. He said that the time had come to make this sacred technology available to everyone. He left us the tools to live life with grace and grit.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to be sharing his teaching.
Jennifer did her teacher training in New York at Kundalini Yoga East with Sat Jivan Kaur and Sat Jivan Sing 2002-2003. She also completed her Prenatal teacher certification at Intergral Yoga, New York, NY 2009. Since then she has been teaching in New York, Montauk and Northern Ireland.

YOGA IN THE DARK
WITH JENNIFER GREENLEES
I first came across Yoga being practiced in the Dark in New York during the disaster of September 11th. Cutting out the sense of sight means you have to concentrate fully, getting really present in your yoga practice and switching off those outside thoughts of fear, panic and anxiety. I thought it was a wonderful idea.
Back home in Northern Ireland lots of people were talking about Running in the Dark For Mark.
I had no idea what its was about until I had the pleasure of meeting Marks father Johnny Pollock at RNIYC where I teach my kundalini yoga classes. He explained to me about his sons tragedy and even though loosing his sight and then falling and becoming paralysed Mark would not give up, he is always positive. In fact through Run in the Dark, Mark Pollock aims to inspire people to build resilience and collaborate with others so that, together, they achieve more than they thought possible.
Here is my twist on it….. “Yoga in the Dark” a fund-raiser for the Mark Pollock Foundation.
