What is Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is yoga of awareness. It consists of simple yogic techniques that can be pleasant and helpful to everyone regardless of age or physical abilities. Kundalini Yoga includes breathing techniques, dynamic and static exercises, chanting mantras, meditation, and relaxation. Kundalini Yoga aims to provide an opportunity to experience our own highest consciousness through the raising of the creative energy of Kundalini.
“What is the Kundalini? The creative potential of the man.”
“What does yoga mean? Yoga means to be united. When you unite with your soul and unite with the One who gave you the soul, that’s what yoga is…” – Yogi Bhajan
Until recently, the ancient technology of Kundalini Yoga was kept secret. It was carefully stored and refined in India by countless generations of yogis. The knowledge was passed by oral tradition from Master to disciple. In 1969, everything changed when Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, brought this technology to the West, recognizing the need for this knowledge. He began to teach it publicly. Now this knowledge is available to us. The main message of Yogi Bhajan is: “It is the birthright of every human being to be healthy, happy, and holy”.
