Kundalini literally means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved”. It is regarded as the broadest of the various yoga traditions: it fuses mantra (chanting), Meditation, breathing techniques and physical exercise. A deeply spiritual and ritualistic embodiment of yoga practice, Kundalini Yoga incorporates values from the 8 Limbs of Yoga together into one practice. It strives to connect universal and individual consciousness, to create true “yoga,” which means “union”.
What to expect
A Kundalini Yoga class will be physically challenging and spiritually fulfilling, enabling practitioners to explore the connection between their individual consciousness and that of the universe. Classes frequently contain significant periods devoted to chanting and divine prayer.
Kundalini Yoga dates back further than the 5th century B.C. Kundalini Yoga originated as a sacred technology and science which was passed on orally from master to disciple for many generations. In modern times, Yogi Bhajan has popularized the study of Kundalini Yoga.
