Maria Varanpal

Maria fully embraces Kundalini Yoga & the Gong, both give her essential tools to live more presently, powerfully and playfully, and help her to accept, experience and transform challenges. She discovered Kundalini Yoga in 2010 when she lived in Santander in Spain, she felt it included what she had been searching for – a practice that combines the body, mind and spirit. In 2013 she began the marvelous journey of an 8-month teacher training course, which took place in Sweden at Yoga Mangalam. During her training the gongs entered her life and she has since then discovered the magic and healing of these transformative instruments, which she gratefully integrates into her yoga classes. Last year she has attended several Gong & Sound healing trainings, eg. with Mehtab Benton and Don Concreaux, and she now offers 1-1 Gong &/or Yoga sessions. She loves the possibility to share these tools with others, and therefore also offers courses, workshops and retreats to dive deeper into presence.
