“Kundalini Yoga is uncoiling yourself to find your potential and your vitality and to reach for your virtues. There is nothing from outside. Try to understand that.
All is in you.
YOU ARE THE STOREHOUSE OF YOUR TOTALITY.”
- Yogi Bhajan, Spiritual Director of 3HO Foundation
About Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is the Yoga of Awareness. It is the householder’s yoga meant for people who are active in the world.
Kundalini Yoga gives you tools to expedite your spiritual growth and healing. Practicing Kundalini Yoga gives you an experience beyond the limits of time and space—an experience of the depth of your soul and true identity.
Kundalini Yoga also provides more well-known benefits like increased flexibility, expanded lung capacity, greater stamina and vitality, a strong core, healing of past karmas and stress alleviation.
Here are some more great—and perhaps unexpected—benefits of Kundalini Yoga:
1. Inner Guidance
Kundalini Yoga develops the power of the intuitive mind via your Pineal Gland. As you develop your internal guidance system, you can use it as a touchstone when faced with the decisions, questions, and choices life brings you.
2. Sacred Sound
Kundalini Yoga is known for it’s sacred chant music and melodic Mantras. Sacred sound, or Naad Yoga, is based on the experience of how sound vibrations affect the body, mind, and spirit through the movement of the tongue, the mouth, and changes in the chemicals in the brain.
3. Turn Karma into Dharma
The practice of Kundalini Yoga takes you out of the cycle of karma. Your positive intention to grow and put yourself through Kundalini kriyas (exercises) burns off karma. It focuses on walking the path of dharma (conscious living) rather than living in response to your karma (the results of your past actions).
4. Protection from Negativity
Kundalini Yoga practice fortifies and expands your electromagnetic field, or aura. A big, strong, bright aura can protect you from negativity and keep you centered in the light of your true identity.
5. Emotional Balance and Neutral Mind
Kundalini Yoga strengthens the nervous system, balances the glands, purifies the blood, and cleans out subconscious thought patterns. This gives you greater awareness and ability to choose how you respond to your thoughts and feelings.
6. Deep Relaxation that Heals
Kundalini Yoga works to strengthen and balance the nervous system. During a Kundalini Yoga kriya and the deep relaxation that follows it, all the nerve endings in the body are given a tune-up. Regular practice gives you extra stamina and resilience in the face of everyday stress.
