Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul and your natural ability to heal.
In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul…and works with kundalini serpent energy.
Most of us are familiar with the 7 Chakras, translating to wheels, of energy at different points along our midline, working from the base of the spine all the way up through the top of our head. Each Chakra representing something different: survival, sexuality, power, love, communication, intuition, and our highest consciousness.
Then we have a sacred force of energy — the coiled kundalini (frequently represented by the image of a serpent) that for most of us lies dormant, at the base of our spine or sacrum. So with serpent coiled and sleeping at our base, the practice of Kundalini Yoga starts to unlock that door and ever so slowly, our personal serpent starts to slither it’s way up through the Chrakras, waking up and igniting them one by one (hence the term ‘Kundalini rising’) until it reaches the top, the crown Chakra, attaining deep levels of meditation, self-realization, empowerment, and enlightenment.
Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it’s the art to experience Infinity in the finite. ~Yogi Bhajan
