Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a holistic practice that includes physical movement in yoga postures, breath techniques, sound, mantra, and meditation. It is a yoga for anyone and everyone – regardless of age or level of physical ability. Kundalini Yoga particularly focuses on strengthening the nervous system and balancing the glandular (endocrine) system, to enable us to meet the challenges of the times, and to stay in high spirits.
Kundalini Yoga is often referred to as ‘the yoga of awareness’. The aim in this practice is to grow in consciousness, and to crystalize the Self. In short, to unfold the true potential inside.
“What is the Kundalini? The creative potential of the man.“
Through movement, breath and meditation, it connects you back to the Sat Naam in you – the True Identity – and in this way, in connection with your uplifted Spirit, you can more fully walk your path in life.
Kundalini Yoga is a yoga for the ‘householder’ – for ‘normal people’ with jobs, families, and the pressures of daily life. It does not ask you to become an ascetic and live in a mountain cave. Rather, it gives you the inner tools to meet the demands of daily life. Yogi Bhajan frequently said: “happiness is your birthright”. These teachings help us to process the stresses of daily life and return to our naturally blissful state.
