Kundalini Yoga dates back to over 5000 years to the time of the rishis in ancient India, who had a highly advanced understanding of how the body and mind work. This knowledge was called yoga and is a highly advanced system/ technology of physical movements, postures, breathing techniques, mantras and meditation. This sacred and secret knowledge was only passed down from master to selected students that passed an initiation test, that was until Yogi Bhajan, a master of this system, came to the west in 1969 and thought it openly. He decreed that that people had to initiate themselves by rising in the early hours and doing the practice.
Kundalini Yoga is a very powerful type of yoga, often known as the “yoga of awareness”. It brings balance and health to the body and all of its systems (digestive, circulatory, nervous, immune, urinary, endocrine, lymphatic, muscular, reproductive and respiratory). It is also very effective for the mind by clearing the sub conscious and bringing a state of calm and clarity which can leave you feeling elevated and at peace within yourself. But it’s most powerful impact is on the spirit, the core of who we really are.
“Kundalini is your creative potential. You experience it when the energy of the glandular system combines with the energy of the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. Then you become totally and wholly aware, and your creative potential becomes available to you”. Yogi Bhajan
