Kundalini Yoga

Described as the "yoga of awareness," Kundalini Yoga combines exercises that focus on building strength and increasing flexibility with powerful breathing techniques, mantras and meditations. Previous yoga experience is not needed and results are felt immediately. Kundalini Yoga is helpful for the muscles, spine, nerves, glands, and organs, promoting positive body chemistry, reducing stress and tension, and creating an overall sense of health and wellbeing,

The ultimate goal of Kundalini Yoga is to awaken the Kundalini, creative, life froce energy stored at the base of the spine. Upon activation, energy rises up the spine, opens the chakras and connects us to our higher selves. To complete the circle, we bring this heightened awareness into our everyday lives.

Kundalini Yoga originated in Northern India and has existed for thousands of years. There was a time when this system was considered to be only for monks and yogis who withdrew from the world. Guru Nanak, in b.1469, was the first Seik Guru to openly teach and practice Kundalini Yoga since the Golden Age. He felt it was everyone's birthright to have an active relationship with the divine and that everyone deserved to have the knowledge of the systems that could make this possible. In the spirit of Guru Nank, Yogi Bhajan brought Kundlini Yoga to the United States in 1969. He believed that everyone has the right to be "healthy, happy and holy."
