Kundalini Yoga is a comprehensive practice that utilizes yogic methods from all different types of yoga. This practice directly influences the nervous system and works to stimulate the endocrine gland system.
Stretches, postures and relaxation tactics are the most common exercises performed in Kundalini Yoga. These are all performed through a variety of yogic methods: Pranayam (the practice of breath), kriyas (yoga poses), meditations, and mantras (derived from the ancient Sanskrit language.) Together, these methods come together to hone in on your inner wisdom and provide you with an increased sense of awareness, decreased stress levels, and an overall sense of control and balance in your life.
For thousands of years, this yogic remained a secret in from the West because of how powerful the effects were believed to be. The science and technology behind Kundalini was considered sacred and thus, kept secret. Because of this, Kundalini practices and traditions were only passed down orally from master to chosen disciple. It wasn’t until thirty years ago that Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, relocated from India to the United States and trained thousands of teachers to share this practice and its traditions with all who wished to participate. He believed that the people of the United States would benefit from the science and technology behind this practice, just like it had done for the people of the East.
