Kundalini Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline for developing strength, awareness, character and conciousness. Practitioners call Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness because it focuses primarily on the practices which expand sensory awareness and intuition in order to raise individual consciousness and merge it with the Infinite consciousness of God. Kundalini Yoga is a transformational technology for self-development.

What to expect in a Kundalini Class?

A Kundalini class begins with a short chant followed by a warm-up to stretch the spine and improve flexibility. The main work of the class is called a kriya, which is a proscribed sequence of poses and that focuses on a specific area of the body. The sequence may consist of rapid, repetitive movements done with breath or holding a pose for a while breathing in a particular way. The teacher typically does not make manual adjustments. The class ends with a meditation and a closing song.

Is Kundalini for you?

Kundalini is one of the more spiritual types of yoga. It goes beyond the physical performance of poses with its emphasis on breathing, meditation, mudras (gesture, usually done with the hands, which focuses and directs energy in a certain way) and chanting. However, the Kundalini sequences
can be very physically intense. This type of yoga appeals to those who are up for both mental and physical challenges.
