What is it?
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan in the late 60s, it is the science of breath and movement, a method that brings vitality to the body, enables you to experience heightened states of consciousness to promote healing, physically, mentally and spiritually.
How does it work?
In Kundalini yoga the practice consists of Kriyas (Kriya means action, specifically inward) which is specific set of asana (postures), pranayama (breath techniques), mantra (scared sounds) and meditation. The kriyas helps shed light on our self-imposed boundaries and allows us to develop our intuitive mind by awakening the energy of consciousness within. There are thousands of kriyas and meditations which gives us some energetic or vibrational effect to promote health and wellbeing, such as kriya’s to “Awaken to your 10 bodies”, or “Body Adjustment to Elevate the spirit”……….
Do I need to wear white? – No of course not, it is important to come in something you feel comfortable in. In Kundalini yoga we wear white because Yogi Bhajan taught us that wearing all white clothing expands our auric radiance by at least one foot.
Do I need to cover my head? – No of course not. However, in Kundalini yoga we cover our head because to protect the solar centers that become very sensitive as we begin to deeply meditate.
I offer the deepest love and grattitude to my incredible teachers Gurmukh and Guru Shabad. To be guided by their knowledge of Yogi Bhajan and Kundalini yoga is an absolute blessing. If you would like to know more about them or even practice with them (which I can't recommend enough) you can find out where they are here.
