Kundalini Yoga
                  "The Yoga of Awareness"


Kundalini Yoga is the original and most powerful of the twenty-two schools of yoga, all of
which are beneficial. The Yoga Sutras (writings) say that what you can achieve in 12 years of Hatha Yoga, plus 6 years of Raj Yoga, plus 3 years of Mantra Yoga, plus 1 year of Laya Yoga can be accomplished in a single year of perfectly practiced Kundalini Yoga.

Kundalini Yoga is designed for the active person with
responsibilities in school, business, work, family
and the world. It was maintained as a secret oral tradition for thousands of years which protected the techniques from abuse, but also created an unnecessary image of mystery.

Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by anyone if it is done gradually and according to the instructions. Any person of any age, size and on any level of mental, emotional or physical abilities can benefit from this ancient practice.

As our society becomes increasingly technological, our world becomes more intimately connected and influenced by its numerous cultures.

The pace of change is on the rise and the
stress on our body’s nervous system is increasing. The science of Kundalini Yoga allows us to tap into a technology that helps us cope with this escalating change. The inner science of the mind is the tool that will enable us to cope with the pressure of these changes. It is the mind that
interprets our outer and inner worlds and it is the mind that we must train to guide us through the flow of change.


"Man's destiny is to merge with Infnity. You should not only know it, you should experience it. Experiencing in yourself the vastness of Infinity is the aim of human life."

Yogi Bhajan

 


~Question: What is Kundalini Yoga?

~Answer: by Yogi Bhajanjogibhajan_2_2.jpg
(There are numerous ways to answer this question. This is just one of them.)


Kundalini Yoga’s origins come from the beginning of time and seem to have roots in the wisdom traditions
of every culture in which a spark of consciousness has been lit. It gives the tools, technology, the sadhana, the personal discipline, to awaken awareness.

Kundalini Yoga is a science which works on the seven chakras, the arc line and the aura. It works directly on the total energy, and that flow of energy has one simple way: either YOU sway it or IT sways you.

Either you are above the energy riding it or you go below the energy and it rides you. That is where Kundalini Yoga fits in : you will learn to ride your energy, to experience it and penetrate any given situation to attain balance.

What is Kundalini actually? It is your creative potential. You experience it when the energy of the
glandular system combines with the energy of the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. Then you become totally and wholly aware, and your creative potential becomes available to you.

The power of Kundalini Yoga lies in the actual experience. It goes right into your heart and extends your
consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and of knowing the truth. Ultimately you come to understand your existence in relationship to the universe and understand you already are, and this brings you to the practical experience of Infinity. You can then radiate creativity and infinity in all aspects of your daily life.

Kundalini Yoga is also a legacy. A legacy means it comes as an inheritance, as something already existing, and passed on to you. The legacy comes direct from infinity, direct from God, direct from the soul. It has been delivered by the Golden Chain-through Guru Ram Das, and Yogi Bhajan to you. Kundalini Yoga is the force of the soul. Because of that, its very nature is timeless, its very essence is like love. Deep in our heart we know that no reason can explain love. Love comes full-blown; it exists in a certain dimension of timelessness that we can all touch within us. Exactly in this way, Kundalini yoga is a legacy of the Infinite, of the Akal, of that which is timeless. It's a legacy of the love of the soul to experience identity. It is a product of what is Infinite, though we view it and experience it in our own finite ways.

 
Kundalini Yoga is the fastest way to establish an aligned relationship between the body, mind and the soul.
Kundalini Yoga is the fastest way to establish and aligned relationship between the body, mind and the soul.
Kundalini yoga is an ancient form of yoga that has only been practiced in the west relatively recently. In 1969, Yogi Bhajan founded 3HO (the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) to introduce Kundalini to a broader population. Although Kundalini had not previously been taught to the public, Yogi Bhajan felt that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy its benefits.

What Does Kundalini Mean?

The Kundalini is untapped energy (prana) at the base of the spine that can be drawn up through the body awakening each of the seven chakras. Full enlightenment occurs when this energy reaches the Crown Chakra. Kundalini energy is often represented as a snake coiled at the base of the spine.

Focus on Breath and Movement

Each Kundalini Yoga asana series is done in conjunction with a specific breath that intensifies the effects of the poses with the purpose of freeing energy in the lower body and allowing it to move upwards. Kundalini sequences (called kriyas) may consist of rapid, repetitive movements done with breath or holding a pose while breathing in a particular way.

What to Expect in a Kundalini Class

A Kundalini class will usually consist of a warm-up to stretch the spine and improve flexibility, a sequence of poses (a kriya) that focuses on a specific area of the body, and meditation, including the use of chanted mantras, pranayama, and mudras. Kundalini devotees often wear flowing white robes and head wraps.

Is Kundalini for You?

Kundalini is one of the more spiritual types of yoga. It goes beyond the physical performance of poses with its emphasis on breathing, meditation, and chanting. However, the Kundalini sequences can be very physically intense. This type of yoga appeals to those who are up for both mental and physical challenges. It will fit into any level the student is at, mentally or physically.
