“The Power of Kundalini Yoga lies in the actual experience. It goes right into your heart and extends your consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and knowing the truth.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
In 1969, Yogi Bhajan brought the ancient science and technology of Kundalini Yoga to the United States to share with all who wished to learn the “Yoga of Awareness.” Combining pranayam (breath), bhandas (body locks), asana (posture), mantra (chanting), mudra (hand positions or “seals”), and meditation, this yoga quickly and effectively brings incredible transformation on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. Kundalini Yoga is taught in “kriya” form, meaning that exercises are done in a specific sequence to obtain a certain outcome. Kundalini Yoga strengthens the glandular system and the nervous system while balancing the chakras and meridians in the body. There are many kriyas and each one is different. A few examples are “The Basic Spinal Series,” “Strengthening the Aura,” “Stress Set for the Adrenals and Kidneys,” and “Kriya for a Calm and Open Heart.” Some kriyas are more aerobic and some are slow and stretchy. Truly it is a practice that must be experienced.
