What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga is a physical and meditative discipline that combines postures (asana), breath (pranayama), body locks (bandhas), hand positions (mudra), eye-focus (drishti) and the use of sound current (mantra).

Kundalini refers to the energy of the body. When that energy is circulated in a specific way, it provides the practitioner with a real experience of their true nature which is that of total physical health and well being, of peace and bliss, of energy and vitality, of love and connectedness and of heightened awareness, intuition and consciousness. This is why Kundalini has been called "the Yoga of Awareness." Not only is physical strength and flexibility gained but through the combination of the above tools, Kundalini balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, expands lung capacity and purifies the blood bringing balance to the body, mind and soul.

"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 not, but your consciousness will not accept just words." ~ Yogi Bhajan
