Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is the yoga of awareness. It is the science and technology of energy channeling and integrating the energy our body mind to live in alignment with our fullest potential. It is the ultimate transformation tool. The Kundalini energy is the energy of the soul and our creative potential. It is something that already exists within us but is simply waiting to be awakened and utilized. A raised Kundalini means simply that everything is in balance within the body and mind.

Using breath, posture, mantra (specific sounds which tap into various frequencies of energy) and mudra (specific hand positions) to awaken energy, Kundalini yoga builds flexibility, endurance and awareness. Working below the surface, it balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to control the mind rather than being controlled by our thoughts and feelings. Although both Kundalini Yoga and Hatha Yoga can achieve the same end goal Kundalini Yoga takes you on the fast track and gets your there quicker. Positive effects as a result of practicing Kundalini Yoga occur in as little as 3 minutes. These changes persist throughout the day and are reflected by positive changes in your mood and behavior.

As a beginning student, you can participate in the class at a pace that suits your flexibility and endurance. Wear loose, comfortable clothing, preferably made of cotton or other natural, breathable fiber. It is best to remove your socks to stimulate the vital nerve endings in the soles of your feet. If you allow at least two hours between eating and practicing yoga, you will gain the maximum benefits. It is also easier to exercise on an empty stomach. If you must eat, have something light to tide you over. For more details visit
