What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga is the oldest and most complete form of yoga practiced in the world today. Kundalini Yoga was brought to the West by Kundalini Yoga Master, Yogi Bhajan in 1968.

This style of yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, encompasses over 800 yoga sequences called kriyas, as well as meditations. The kriyas are a formula of yoga poses, breathwork, and meditations (with and without mantra) done for a specific length of time and in a specific order so that a specific effect can take place in the body and mind. With a wide range of kriyas, the effects can be something obvious such as "Kriya for Flexibility and the Spine" or more subtle like "Kriya to Become Intuitive".

By doing Kundalini kriyas and meditations, you are pressurizing the glands in the body to secrete and the nervous system to adjust to the challenge of new body patterns, thus creating healing change in the body from within. Your mind-body uses hormones and the nervous system as communication, so it's like you're upgrading your operating system to keep up with the increased pace of life!

All yoga is meant to raise your Kundalini energy, which is coiled at the base of your spine and represents your full creative potential. What does that mean? It means that you can let go of self-limiting beliefs, habits and fears and live your life to its fullest, simply by directing this energy up along the spine!

In ancient yoga texts it is written that Kundalini Yoga is the quickest and most effective way to move this energy and that the effects of practicing 1 year of Kundalini Yoga is equivalent to practicing 22 years of other forms of yoga (12 years of Hatha, 6 years of Raja Yoga, 3 years of Mantra Yoga, 1 year of Laya Yoga)!

What are the benefits of Kundalini Yoga?

All Kundalini Yoga kriyas accomplish the following:

  • balancing all the Chakras

  • incorporating all the 8 Limbs of Yoga as described by Patanjali (Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayam, Pratyhahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi)

  • balancing the 10 Bodies

You practice at your own pace and can use variations so that the same class can be practiced at even a beginner/intermediate level.

 

With a consistent practice of Kundalini Yoga, you can experience many benefits:

  • increased capacity to deal with stress

  • improved immune system

  • better sleep

  • increased lung capacity

  • balanced glandular function

  • strengthened nervous system

  • improved digestion/elimination

  • better flexibility of joints

  • increased self awareness

  • more developed neutral mind

  • release of sub-conscious blocks

  • connection to your true self and to others

Why practice Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga is very accessible for most fitness levels and is a great way to start for beginners. 

Kundalini Yoga provides exposure to a wide variety of yoga poses and kriyas so it never gets boring or predictable! It is a wonderful way to experience a vast series of breathing and meditation techniques, as well as gain insight of your own inner blocks.

If you're interested in experiencing a different level of depth in your yoga practice and to get a taste of spirituality, then this style will deliver that experience!

It is an excellent mind-body fitness, making it a good cross-training choice!

What to expect?

Due to the fact that there are over 800 different Kundalini sequences (kriyas) and meditations passed on to us by Yogi Bhajan, every class can address a different theme and you may never end up doing the same class twice!

However, if there is a class sequence that resonates with you, consider doing it for 40 days or ask for a personal consultation with Navjit Kaur to work deeper on a specific theme.

In our 1.5-hour classes, you can expect the following class format:​​

  • Opening invocation with the Adi Mantra

  • Brief overview of the theme chosen and how it relates to life and our well-being

  • Warm-up poses and breathwork (pranayam)

  • Kundalini Yoga kriya with a themed focus
  • Relaxation in Savasana pose to integrate the effects of the practice

  • Kundalini Yoga meditation to match the kriya theme

  • Closing with the Longtime Sun song and blessings for the day

 

After your session, enjoy our featured Yogi tea and connecting with your class and teacher!
