Kundalini Yoga, also know as the yoga of awareness, is an ancient science of self-healing that utilizes breath-work (pranayam), yoga postures (asana), sound (mantra), and meditation to create vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and spiritual awareness.
Kundalini Yoga consists of simple yogic techniques which can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter your age or physical ability.
The practice of Kundalini Yoga promotes optimum general health, stress reduction, emotional balance, brain longevity, and enhanced intuition. It trains the mind to be calm, clear, non-reactive, and flexible in the face of stress and change.
It is designed to provide you with the experience of your highest consciousness through the raising of your Kundalini, which is the opening of the soul energy of awareness. The word 'kundalini' refers to the latent potential that exists in each one of us. It literally means "the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved." This metaphor is said to allude to the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each individual, and enables individuals to merge with the universe and with their authentic self. Practitioners of yoga believe that fusing individual and universal consciousness creates a divine union, called "yoga." The Upanishads – the Hindu religion's sacred scriptures – describe and recognize the existence and practice of Kundalini Yoga in the 5th Century B.C. Because of the oral tradition associated with Kundalini Yoga, practitioners believe that it reaches back even further into history. For thousands of years, this sacred science and technology was veiled in secrecy, passed along verbally from master to chosen disciple.
The exercises most commonly associated with yoga are stretches, postures and relaxation. Kundalini Yoga includes all these exercises but also utilizes rhythmic, sequential exercises that incorporate breath-work, mantra and meditation.
The practice of Kundalini Yoga results in heightened awareness and greater endurance so you can meet and overcome the challenges in your life and access your innate inner wisdom.
It gives you the happiness and vitality that is your birthright and makes you radiant, peaceful and strong so you can meet life's challenges and win.
Kundalini Yoga is known as the yoga for householders. A practitioner of Kundalini yoga doesn't retreat from society to meditate in a cave, but uses the yoga to uplift himself or herself to excel in all facets of daily life, including relationships with partners and children, effective communication, and cultivating a consciousness of abundance.
Kundalini Yoga is a safe and complete yogic system and is acknowledged by yogic traditions to be one of the fastest catalysts for personal growth.
