About Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga was brought to the west in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan Ph.D., Kundalini Master. Up until this time, the science of Kundalini Yoga was shrouded in secrecy in India, practiced only among
a select few. Yogi Bhajan broke with this tradition of silence and shared this powerful technology openly and freely with all.
Kundalini Yoga is considered the most comprehensive of all the yogas, combining physical postures and movement, breathwork and meditation. “Kundalini” literally means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved,” a poetic reference to the flow of energy
and unlimited potential which exists within every individual. By raising this energy, we can join our individual consciousness with the Universal Consciousness, creating a healing and peaceful union called “yoga.”
Through the use of physical postures and movement (called a kriya), the muscular, glandular, circulatory, and nervous systems are strengthened and balanced. Breathing techniques are employed to develop mastery over moods and process emotions and life
experiences. Meditation and sound current techniques bring about a state of harmony between body, mind and spirit.
When planning to attend a Kundalini Yoga class, wear comfortable clothing that you can move in easily (dressing in layers works best). You may wish to bring your own yoga mat (there are mats available if you don't have one or have forgotten it) and a bottle of
water. Ideally, it is best not to eat for at least a couple of hours before class; if this is not possible, have a light snack such as a piece of fruit.
