Is the awakening of the unlimited potential that already exists in every human. It is the awakening of the self and thus Kundalini yoga is often referred to as the yoga of awareness. It is normal capacity that most of us are simply not utilizing – it is the goal of all yoga!
In Kundalini there is no “perfect posture” to attain and little concern with alignment. The focus is breath and movement and thus accessible by all. It is an energizing and elevating practice. The way Kundalini yoga differs is its direct focus on moving the energy through the chakra system(stimulating the energy in the lower chakras and moving it to the higher chakras). It concentrates prana (life energy) in the lower chakras, raises it to the higher chakras, and then balances all the chakras.
Classes in Kundalini yoga include centering with a mantra, warm-up, a specific yoga set known as a Kriya, deep relaxation and meditation.
WHAT DOES KUNDALINI YOGA DO?
The practice of Kundalini yoga balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than be controlled by our thoughts and feelings.
Kundalini yoga strengthens the immune system
The practice of Kundalini yoga improves our focus and mental clarity making it easier to be consistent and truthful in our relationships
We are able to more readily know what is right without needing to weigh out the pros and the cons of every situation
The practice helps us achieve greater control over our own lives. This increases our sense of trust and security and we are more accepting of life as it unfolds.
It becomes easier to give up negative attitudes such as lack of trust, or judgement about ourselves or others.
Our presence, touch, words and even our smile heals as our vibrations are raised through the practice
Our increased clarity allows us to perceive and draw opportunities towards ourselves. There is no longer a need to manipulate or fight to achieve what we desire!
Meditation in Kundalini Yoga contains specific, practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra, and focus.
Our attachments to the past and our fear of the self are what block our growth to recognizing our infinite potential. Kundalini yoga wakes us up to that potential and removes the blocks by releasing old patterns, attitudes and behaviours. With increased clarity you will see things form a new perspective that will support your growth.
Clearing the subconscious through Kundalini yoga and meditation free us from our fears!
We become our thoughts. Your thoughts strengthen or destroy you.
