Kundalini Yoga is called the yoga of awareness. A spiritual science that is designed to give you an experience of your soul. Kundalini is whole-istic (in my definition) The ability to harness the energy centres/chakra systems of the body and experience yourself beyond time and space. Harnessing the physical, mental and nervous energies of the body. The whole self.
Kundalini energy is created by mixing the Prana (life force) and Apana (elimination force) These two energies are governed by masculine (Pingala) and feminine (Ida). When we mix these two energies together with the power of kundalini yoga, a pressure is created in the body that awakens dormant shakti energy from the base of the spine. This energy rises through the centre line of the body to the crown of the head and flows back down, opening our bodies energy centres.
"Known for its transformative benefits, the practice of Kundalini Yoga builds physical strength and stamina and enhances cognitive function, emotional fitness, and spiritual connection. Many people describe the experience as exhilarating, euphoric, and powerful." 3HO
This practice's main focus is the movement and transformation of energy. Every time you practice, something will shift at a deep cellular level. Unlike other styles of yoga there is no one practice or sequence. We focus on 'kriyas' which means action. A kriya is a specific sequence of ancient yogic techniques and meditations that give you a specific result. For example if you have digestive problems, anxiety, depression, addiction. There are kriyas to cover every problem - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Kundalini includes the following techniques:
Asana: body postures
Mudras: hand positions
Mantras: intentional, repeated sounds
Bandhas: constriction of particular area of the body
Drishti: directing the gaze of the eyes
Shivasana: relaxation at the end of practice
WHO IS KUNDALINI FOR?
Kundalini is for EVERYONE! People just like me and you, coping with the demands of everyday life. The daily challenges and stressors, raising children, holding jobs, studying, managing biz…all of the things. It provides us with the skills to navigate these times.
Kundalini is not a religion. When we apply the ancient technology of Kundalini Yoga to our body and mind, it has the effect of uplifting the soul energy. It is a universal practice.
‘’The process of growth through Kundalini Yoga is a natural unfolding of your own nature. Like a snake, you will need to shed old skin to be more of who you are’’. Yogi Bhajan
