Kundalini Yoga is an ancient yoga practice that originated in India. Kundalini Yoga was introduced in the west by Yogi Bhajan in the late 1960s. Kundalini practice includes classical yoga poses with an emphasis on movement between poses.
In addition, Kundalini yoga via Sewall House Yoga Retreat consists of chanting holy mantras, pranayama, and meditation exercises. Kundalini practitioners report a profound sense of physical and emotional well-being from practicing yoga regularly.
Kundalini is considered to be one of the most powerful yoga practices. Actually, the word Kundalini comes from the Sanskrit root for pot. The word Kundalini itself actually means to stay. The focus of Kundalini Yoga is the awakening of the Kundalini Shakti energy, which is coiled three and a half times in the form of a snake at the base of the spine.
When this sacred energy awakens in the Muladhara chakra, it travels up through the seven chakras and eventually penetrates the seventh chakra at the top of the skull, filling the practitioner with divine bliss and a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of all beings.
The ideal situation for ambitious Kundalini Yoga students is of course studying directly with a qualified Kundalini master. If a Kundalini Yoga Teacher is not currently available, a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher will be the next best option.
