Kundalini — what is it? We like to say Kundalini just means energy. Just like all rivers lead to the ocean, all yoga’s raise the Kundalini — allowing the energy in your spine to move “up” towards the higher centers, so one may expeirnce “higher consciousness” which is the goal of all Yoga. Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a potent practice that allows this to happen quickly, and it’s experiential – meaning what you put into the practice, you will get back. This workshop is designed for new students of Kundalini Yoga, and practitioners who seek to deepen their understanding of this incredibly effective practice.
As an ancient science for modern times, this offering includes a complete Kundalini Yoga class, as well as a posture clinic, exploration of the most frequently used mantras, and historical overview. Students will learn how to get the most out of a Kundalini Yoga class, as well as Ayurvedic tips for preparation and aftercare that maximize and prolong the benefits of the practice.
