Kundalini yoga is the yoga of awareness. It is a technology to awaken the Kundalini energy that resides at the base of the spine. The technology includes chanting, breathing (pranayam), movement (asana) and meditation. The final relaxation in savasana (corpse pose) is often accompanied by the sound of the gong. The vibration of the gong heals the body, releases tension, and helps to quiet the mind. Kundalini yoga balances the endocrine system, digestive system, nervous system & chakra system. Yogi Bhajan brought this technology of Kundalini yoga to America in 1969. Before this time, the teachings were kept a secret from the masses. Kundalini yoga is a kriya yoga. A kriya is a specific set of postures, breath and sound with the goal to achieve a specific outcome. Some examples are: Exercise Set for the Kidneys, Healthy Bowel System, & Kriya for Disease Resistance. There are thousands of different kriyas that have been around for thousands of years. We end each Kundalini yoga practice with a meditation. The goal of meditation is to tune us into our neutral mind and to balance the negative & positive mind. We wear white clothing and a white head covering in Kundalini yoga to strengthen the electromagnetic field and assist in tuning into the meditative mind. The chanting is in Gurmukhi which is a derivative of the Sanskrit language. The vibration of the mantras has a healing effect on the cells of the body. Kundalini yoga offers a powerful and transformative experience. I find the practice brings me clarity, peace & vitality. I am deeply grateful to Yogi Bhajan for sharing this technology with the masses and I feel so honored to share these teachings with our community. I would love to share a Friday morning practice with you at Jai Rhythm! Kundalini yoga is a practice accessible to all levels. Please join us as we gather and uplift each other in the sacred & powerful early morning hours.
“Elevate. Each day, live to elevate yourself, each day elevate one person. Make elevation your religion and you shall reach infinity.” -Yogi Bhajan
