with Dharamjeet Diana DelMonte
Kundalini Yoga is a science and tool for awakening. Through a combination of postures (asanas), breath (pranayama), and mantras, this discipline creates a sense of well being and a heightened sense of awareness and clarity that will radiate from you and carry you throughout the day. Translating as a coiled female serpent Kundalini is the dormant energy at the base of the spine. It works on the arcline, aura, and chakras. This powerful yoga practice provides the stamina needed to break through addictions, depression, negative thoughts, and anxiety. Listen to beautiful music in Diana's classes, experience joy and alertness rising from your practice, and allow this experience to go straight to the heart.
Coming from a visual art and ballet background, Dharamjeet Diana DelMonte learned Hatha Yoga in 1986 when she moved to Los Angeles from the East Coast. She also began a Zen Buddhist meditation practice at this time and took Jukai (lay ordination) at the Kanzeonji Zen Buddhist Temple in Los Angeles, and has since adhered to a vegan diet and lifestyle out of compassion for animals.
Through the years Diana has trained in and attended Vipassana and Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreats. A spiritual activist and animal advocate Diana lives her life into a practice of Ahimsa, a Buddhist doctrine of refraining from harming any living being.
Years later she fell in love with the joy that Kundalini Yoga brings and in 2010 she trained at GoldenBridge Yoga in Los Angeles with Master teachers Gurmukh, Gurushabd, Teg, and Harijiwan and received Level 1 Certification as a Kundalini yoga instructor through the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI).
Dharamjeet loves animals and also works as an Animal Communicator helping to heal animals and their people. She is a remote viewer and dowser. Authoring two books, Dharamjeet aspires to uplift others through her writing and yoga practice and to be more loving to all living beings. She lives with three Zen Masters–her felines-who guide and keep her on track.
Dharamjeet is excited to have finally found a way to join her yoga practice with her animal work. Her recent project, The Spirit Animal Wisdom Deck and Yoga Practice Guidebook, combine the Spirit Animal's wisdom teaching with a corresponding Kundalini Yoga meditation to launch the wisdom reading into action.

Every class begins with the Adi Mantra:
ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO
I bow to the Creative Intelligence
I bow to the wisdom within.
We begin a class with warm-ups. Then we practice a Kriya - a set of exercises that include yoga asanas, mantras and/or mudras. Every set is designed to bring about a specific result. Every set is different, and there are hundreds of designed sets. Every class is unique and exciting.
A class usually includes a specific corresponding Kundalini meditation that may also incorporate the recitation of a mantra, combined with a mudra, or hand gesture.
Every mantra has a vibrational frequency that brings about peace and raises the consciousness.
Every mudra stimulates specific meridians in the body that lock and guide the energy flow and reflexes to the brain. The hand, like the foot, is the energy map of our consciousness and our health.
We end our class with the traditional Long Time Sunshine Song.
And conclude with the mantra Sat Nam
Truth is My Identity
My truth meets your truth as one.

About Reiki and Healing
You don't have to be ill to benefit from an energetic healing. A healing can balance and clear any blockages you may have in your body, and help the energy in the body to flow unhindered again; thus, facilitating physical healing. A healing may also help alleviate depression, anxiety, PTSD, and stress.
An energetic healing also works to clear the auric field, and energy fields around the body where negativity can become trapped, and where illness first manifests.
Initially, a body scan is done beforehand, remotely, if requested. Before the healing Dharamjeet will do an emotional assessment to see what emotional center is off balance and contributing to the cause of the mental or physical issue. After a chakra and auric cleansing which releases blockages and stuck energy, the healing becomes focused on the specific ailment or condition.
Healing for animals is done in the same way. Healing is especially beneficial when an animal is near death, as it helps to facilitate a peaceful, relaxed exit from the physical body.
Dharamjeet uses sound (gongs and bells), aromatherapy, and music to take you into a deep, relaxed state. When we are fully relaxed, in the state of surrender, love, and acceptance, and in-tune with our bodies, healing can begin on multiple levels.
Dharamjeet integrates healing modalities depending on the emotional or physical issue on hand. During deep, meditative states, images may also arise that might point to the underlying she sometimes receives images that may point to the emotional cause of the person's present condition.
For distance healing, Dharamjeet will email you a complimentary guided healing meditation audio recording for you to listen to. This helps to fully relax your body and mind prior to the healing. During Dharamjeet's guided meditation, you will fill your body with light, send this light to specific areas that need physical or emotional healing, and also send this light outward to others, as you mentally repeat affirmations. Afterward, while you are still resting in this meditative state, Dharamjeet will be sending the healing to you.
While you were doing Reiki I felt a pulsating in my (injured) arm. Each time the pulsating seemed to rise and get very intense, as though you were bringing the pain to the surface and sucking it out. This went on for a while. After you stopped the treatment, the pain was gone. I have never felt anything like this before. You have a powerful gift. You are a healer.
A healing session is one hour.
