What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga is an effective technology that incorporates all the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga into one integrated system.

Kundalini Yoga was first openly introduced by Yogi Bhajan, when he came to the West in 1969. Before that, it was a secret style of yoga taught only to a few selected students. Kundalini Yoga is often called “the yoga of awareness”. Our goal is to cultivate greater awareness of our own identity and our relationship with our body, others, our environment and the universe.

Class structure: tune in, warm-up, kriya, relaxation, meditation and closing the class with Sat Nam.

Kriya. The word kriya means action. In Kundalini Yoga a kriya is a series of postures, breath, and sound that work toward a specific outcome. It’s important to practice the sequences exactly as given by Yogi Bhajan, with the exception of reducing the timing of postures when necessary (shorten all the exercises proportionally).
