What is Kundalini Yoga?


Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of Awareness. An ancient spiritual process where you learn to tap into your energy and enhance your inward perception. The sanskrit term “Kundalini” means a “coiled snake.” This dormant energy sits at the base of your spine, sleeping and unaroused. Kundalini Yoga unlocks this divine energy up and through the chakras along your spine.


The practice consists of physical exercises, breathing techniques, deep relaxation and meditation. Kundalini Yoga is for everybody and suitable for new practitioners.


Why Kundalini Yoga Is Good For You



The practice of Kundalini Yoga strengthens the body, balances the glandular system, nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than being controlled by our thoughts and feelings.

Kundalini Yoga helps with stress relief, improved cognitive function, self perception and appreciation. With regular practice, practitioners tend to experience the difference in energy and control. It also heightens our creativity, intuition and spirituality. The fundamental breathing exercises expand and purify the lungs, improving circulation throughout the body. Cleaner and more oxygenated blood helps the brain and other organs work better.


Here are some common phrases used in the Kundalini practice:


Pranayama. The purpose of the pranayama is to gain awareness and control of the breath. Mudras are specific hand positions or alignments that direct th


e flow of energy to different parts of our bodies.


Kriya is a sequence of pranayamas, postures, mudras and meditation. The length of each kriya depends on the practitioner
