Kundalini Yoga - The Yoga for everyone!
Kundalini Yoga is the ancient mother of all yoga and is also known as 'the Yoga of Awareness'. Kundalini Yoga works deeply on the nervous and glandular systems, and yet compared to other types of yoga the postures are simple and easy to perform. The kriyas (a series of exercises) are highly effective.
It can be practiced by people of any age and physical condition. The beneficial effects are quickly felt. Kundalini Yoga opens the way to better health, mental balance, body awareness and mindfulness.
Energy flow plays a central role: the Kundalini energy is the dormant force at the base of the spine. By activating the energy centres along the spine (Chakras) we better align body and mind.
The regular practice of Kundalini Yoga balances body, mind and soul sustainably. All aspects of yoga are included: posture, movement, concentration, and conscious guided breathing, as well as meditation and chanting mantras. The combination of these elements leads to a resilient body, a clear mind, and a more conscious perception.
Its effectiveness as a method for maintaining health and promoting healing is scientifically proven. In cases of mental stress, mental tension, physical discomfort, and digestive problems, Kundalini Yoga is an efficient relaxation and harmonisation technique.
Originally Kundalini Yoga came from northwestern India. In 1968 Yogi Bhajan brought this millennia long tradition to the West. The mantras in Kundalini Yoga come from the tradition of Sikh Dharma, and like the mantras in Hatha Yoga are rooted in Hinduism.
Kundalini Yoga is not dogmatic, but playful, full of symbolic elements and techniques.
