Kundalini Yoga, the original and most potent form of yoga, is designed not only to improve your physical health, but also to balance your emotional well-being, clarify your mental thoughts, relieve stress and assist in personal transformation. The word “Kundalini” ultimately means “awareness” and through the practice of Kundalini Yoga and meditation, you can use energies from your psychological, physical and nervous systems to gain further inner awareness. This form of yoga makes use of asana (yogic postures), pranayama (breathing) and mantra (chanting) to bring the rest of the body under the discipline of your will, which is one of your most valuable tools.
“In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace your experience. Your mind may accept the words or it may now, but your consciousness will not accept just words.” -Yogi Bhajan
By experiencing the force of will required to successfully execute Kundalini Yoga, you will develop a greater awareness of your inner life force. This awareness is meant to assist you on your path towards lasting wellness, even after you leave the classes. Unlike the usual yogic path, Kundalini Yoga was designed as a “householder path.” Even those who immerse themselves in the practice and teaching of Kundalini Yoga are not meant to leave their lives in order to follow meditation. Kundalini is meant to be incorporated into your everyday life as a tool which brings you into a more balanced state in every aspect of wellness.
“Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it’s the art to experience Infinity in the finite.” -Yogi Bhajan
