WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is a 5000 year old Indian body of knowledge. Derived from the Sanskrit word "yuj" which means "to unite or integrate". Yoga is all about harmonizing the body with the mind and breath through the means of various breathing techniques, yoga postures (asanas) and meditation.
WHAT IS KUNDALINI YOGA?
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.
WHAT DOES KUNDALINI MEAN?
The Kundalini is untapped energy (prana) at the base of the spine that can be drawn up through the body awakening each of the seven chakras. Full enlightenment occurs when this energy reaches the crown chakra at the top of the head. Kundalini energy is often represented as a snake coiled at the bottom of the spine.
THE BENEFITS OF KUNDALINI YOGA
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 purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
Kundalini Yoga was kept very secret until 1969 when Yogi Bhajan taught it openly in order to prepare humanity for the major changes that this planet is going through as we cross from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age. The ancient technology of Kundalini Yoga gives us the awareness and the fortitude to make this a smooth transition. The legacy of technical and spiritual knowledge that Yogi Bhajan studied and mastered in India is the gift he brought to the West.
IT IS FOR EVERYONE!
Kundalini Yoga is not a religion. When we apply the technology of Kundalini Yoga to our bodies and minds, it has the effect of uplifting the spirit. It is universal and non-denominational.
HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM OTHER FORMS OF YOGA?
The purpose of all yoga is the same, to raise the awareness and unite the powers within to raise consciousness.
The only difference with Kundalini Yoga is the time and rate of progress. Kundalini Yoga is direct and quick, its a perfect practice for the pace of a modern day householder. The difference in the yoga is within the consciousness.
