$49.00 Understaning the Inner Critic

The inner critic or "critical inner voice" is a psychological concept usually experienced as an inner voice attacking the self.  Depending on the day, our inner critic manifests as the perfectionist, the taskmaster, the inner controller, the guilt tripper, the destroyer, the underminer, and/or the molder.     In the course of this workshop, we will use Kundalini kriyas to observe our inner critic, asking if our inner voice protects us from hurt or abandonment or reinforces feelings of shame and guilt, sabotaging relationships, and leading to self-destructive behavior?  We will deploy naad and pranayama in two prongs – vanquish the inner demon to silence it, and befriend the critic and transform it into a helpful ally.

Manju Sadarangani

Manju is a Yoga sceptic.  Born in the cradle of Yoga to a Yogini mother, Manju came to her practice fashionably late.  Although she attended intensive classes as a child and teenager at the oldest Yoga institute in India, Manju’s curiosity drew her to Kundalini Yoga in 2019.  In 2021, she completed her Level 1 teacher training with aspiring teachers from across the planet, the first global KRI program of its kind.    Manju believes in bringing a spirit of play, body positivity and radical self-love to her classes.  Describing herself as a perpetual novice, Manju centers curiosity and brings her creativity as a visual artist to Lighthouse.  She enjoys sharing joy, color, naad, and mantras in her practice.  She resists the problematic cultural appropriation surrounding Yoga by committing to authenticity in the studio.  She invites you to consider Yoga as a tool to recharge, resist, and rebel.
