It uses specially formulated techniques that are dynamic and powerful to transform your energy and unleash your full creative potential. It is a spiritual practice that enables you to experience your totality as you harness the energy of your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual self to restore balance in your wellbeing. 

 

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. You can use props, sit in a chair or on the floor. You just have to show up and allow yourself to keep up with yourself as you expand from wherever you are.

WHAT IS KUNDALINI?

 

The word Kundalini comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Kundal’ meaning a ‘spiral’ or ‘coil’. The word ‘ini’ represents the “Shakti” who is the divine feminine creative power, which is sleeping energy. ‘Kundalini’ represents the ‘coiled divine feminine power’ in each of us. When awakened, the divine feminine power of Shakti, is united with the divine masculine power of Shiva. It activates the path of oneness and self realisation where the true self resides.

 

WHAT IS YOGA?

 

The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word "yuj", which means "to yoke" (unite) both the spiritual and physical body together. It is the fusion of individual and universal consciousness that creates a divine union, called “yoga” and going beyond the physical, mind, body and soul to enter the spirit. Pantanjali brought it into the modern world giving it shape, form, order, and methodology from a combination of ancient traditions, concepts and philosophies. Yoga has evolved over thousands of years to embrace a wide range of styles and disciplines to experience peacefulness, stillness, clarity, relaxation, develop intuition, mindfulness and gain a greater sense of self awareness. 

 

WEARING WHITE IN KUNDALINI YOGA?

 

Wearing white clothes and natural fibres expands the magnetic field, deflect negativity, uplift mood, and heighten self awareness. It is recommended to wear white and head covering while practicing Kundalini Yoga, but it is not required, and students are encourage to try it out and see how it feels for them.

 

"We adopted this color because of our background and to support our development. We ask you to wear white so that you will reflect what is outside and go within yourself—that’s what white clothes can do for you." Yogi Bhajan

 

WEARING A HEAD COVERING IN KUNDALINI YOGA?

 

Wearing a head covering enables you to contain and control your energy while enhancing your self awareness. We are training ourselves to be aware of and master our subtle energies, hence wearing a head covering literally helps "keep your head together."

"Kundalini Yoga is the uncoiling of the being. It is the potential of creativity of the infinite in the finite. It is the widening of the behaviour, and it is ultimate happiness in life... It is a scientific technology for happiness."
