Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga for Beginners

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice that originated in India. It is a tantric branch of Yogic methodology and is known by its practitioners as the mother of all Yoga practices. Practitioners of all levels are welcome in a Kundalini class. A Kundalini class usually begins with a dedication or intention for your practice and the singing of sacred mantras and scriptural verses. A typical class will be comprised of a balanced set of yogic techniques that include physical postures, breathing exercises, chanting and specific meditation practices.

What is Shaktipat Energy Transmission?

Shaktipat can be given by a master through touch, glance, and sankalpa or intention. The awakened Kundalini has many manifestations. Some seekers feel strong emotions such as grief, fear, anger, or ecstasy. Often these emotions come in waves and are intermingled as the inner energy is being awakened.

What is Kundalini Yoga Meditation?

When the Kundalini energy is awakened, she ascends upwards along the spine until it pierces the seventh chakra in the crown of the head. When this happens, great bliss and knowledge arises within the meditator's field of awareness. Kundalini Yoga meditation practices both awaken the Kundalini Shakti energy, while nourishing and supporting the awakened energy as it ascends up through the chakras.

More Mantras for Kundalini Yoga Practice

According to the wisdom of Kundalini Yoga, repeating a sacred mantra internally, or externally, shifts the energy in and around you. The more you repeat a sacred mantra, the stronger the vibration becomes and the more able the vibration is to activate your chakras and cleanse the mind of any negativity. As we begin to regularly practice mantra repetition, the mantras begin to vibrate at a deep energetic level.
