About Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga, the ‘Yoga of Awareness’, was brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan in 1969. It is a dynamic and very enjoyable style of yoga which, using physical postures and movements (asana), breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation and chanting, enables us to tap that latent potential within, which may have been lying dormant for a long time.
We as teachers of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yoga Bhajan, and our students are incredibly fortunate to have hundreds of sets (kriyas), each of which focuses on a particular objective, e.g. balancing the glandular system, strenghtening the nervous system, releasing fear and anxiety. Students frequently comment on how enthusiasm for their yoga practice is enhanced by this amazing variety of fascinating kriyas.
Pranayama is fundamental to Kundalini Yoga. All asanas and meditation utilise the power of the breath, clearing out toxins, strenghtening the immune systme, energising the body, aiding our digestion and balancing the two hemispheres of the brain.
Kundalini Yoga, the ‘Yoga of Awareness’. Eyes closed to get a true sense of what’s going on inside the body, mind and spirit. Focus at the 3rd eye, seat of our intuition. “If you don’t go within, you go without”. Sat Nam.
