Kundalini Yoga

yoga to heal, uplift & inspire

Kundalini Yoga is the most powerful and effective form of yoga. It stimulates optimal health and a radiant sense of well being with simplem,yogic techniques that can be practised by anyone. Positive effects can be noticed almost right away.Kundalini Yoga helps to bring the energies of your brain and nervous and glandular systems into balance, in order for you to function at a consistently higher level, without exhausting your mind and body. When the body and mind are at ease, inspiration flows freely and peace of mind is realized. Until recent years, Kundalini Yoga was the exclusive and secretive domain of yogis in the far-off Himalayas. In 1968, Yogi Bhajan (1929-2004) came to the West and began to teach this powerful, health-giving science openly. In 1994, he founded the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association (IKYTA) to spread and to serve these teachings. Nowadays, through the efforts of teachers of the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association, Kundalini Yoga is practised by tens of thousands of people in 68 countries.

what happens in a class?

A class begins by aligning and lengthening the spine in a sitting position together with an opening chant to create a protective and energetic space. Yoga postures (asanas) follow to free and warm the spine and nourish organs and tissues. The class continues with a kriya which is an ancient system of spiritual yogic practice that creates very precise effects through postures (fixed and dynamic), hand positions (mudras), bhandas, and breathing techniques.

Exercises within the kriya are held for a prescribed length of time and are designed to clear and regenerate the physical, mental and subtle energy. The class continues with relaxation whilst listening to sound yoga followed by a meditation for 3, 6 or 11 minutes which involves specific mudras combined with breathing and sound aimed to propel us forward leaving behind cycles and patterns of behaviour no longer useful, taking us to a greater awareness and expansion.
