Kundalini Yoga

KUNDALINI YOGA and KUNDALINI ENERGY

Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) differs from other yoga styles on offer today. It consists of several elements all of which are brought into every session.  Kundalini Yoga can be described as a technology for spiritual growth. I like to call it self-help for the soul. It’s techniques are profoundly transformational and can work very rapidly to bring about change. Kundalini Yoga is a science which gives you strength to change, to expand your capacity for life. It brings out your inner radiance.

Quote from Yogi Bhajan; Master of Kundalini Yoga. “If you want to achieve anything in life, you have to act without any fear of gain or loss.” – Yogi Bhajan

It has only been taught in the West for about forty years although it’s history in India goes back for millennia. It was traditionally a raj or royal yoga reserved for the high-ranking families. In the 1960’s Yogi Bhajan travelled to the U.S. and began to teach it because he believed that people in the West were ready and needed to know it’s teachings. The word “Yoga” literally derives from the Sanskrit meaning to unite or to join, the English word yoke derives from it. The practice of yoga has existed for thousands of years, before written records. It’s purpose is to achieve unity or one-ness with the Universal Energy, the Cosmos, Divinity or GOD – choose your own name. In practising yoga we learn to attune our minds to one universal spirit, which flows through us all and is the source of all energy. The Kundalini energy is that potential held curled up or dormant inside you, which this yoga uncoils. That uncoiling or manifestation of your power is called Kundalini.

WHY KUNDALINI YOGA?

“Every human, no matter to which religion they belong, will face a reality in the future where they will need a strong, healthy, nervous system. They will need mental clarity and the back-up of spiritual strength to face this coming world. We can say with confidence, the only way to do this is through yogic techniques by which body, mind and spirit can be enhanced.
To sustain themselves, tomorrow’s individuals must have yogic training. It is a need of the times. By 2013, forty to sixty percent of the population will be practising yoga. People will see that those who practice yoga are bright and beautiful, calm and blissful. They will recognize that the yogic community is sincere and dependable, serving and giving.……… The future of yoga is bright, bountiful and blissful.”   Yogi Bhajan, PhD. April 1999.
