Le Kundalini Yoga

What is Kundalini Yoga ?

The practise of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, works with kriyas (physical exercises), pranayama (breath control), meditation, mantras (sound healing), relaxation, mudras and philosophy.

The interplay of these elements brings direct and lasting effects by stimulating and regulating the glandular, immune and nervous systems.

Attendance at one class a week can improve your health and give a deeper experience of self.  Some people notice their bodies becoming more toned and the loss of excess weight, others experience feelings of lightness and clarity with more of a sense of purpose and direction in their lives.  Others experience a deep sense of peace and find that this begins to enter into their everyday lives.

I felt safe and held by Ishwara Kaur at her Kundalini Yoga Workshop.  This allowed me to work though some profound blocked emotions and come out the other end smiling.

Much of our behaviour is not spontaneous but the repetition of old patterns, held in the subconscious mind.  Many of the meditations in Kundalini Yoga clean the subconscious mind of these patterns and free up our spontaneity.

Deeper practise through workshops, retreats or teacher training  can bring very deep states of meditation, relaxation and peace as well as a healthy body and clarity about your life’s purpose.

Kundalini Yoga and Sound

Be it Yogic Philosophy, the Bible or other sources, everything starts with the sound.  In the beginning was the Word.  In Kundalini Yoga we realign with the Divine through the sacred sound of Mantras/Shabds.  They are present as a point of focus in the physical exercises or in chanted meditations and have profound healing effects on our body, mind and spirit.  The emotional energy that we liberate when singing, awakens the very core of our being and lets us access higher vibrations and consciousness that we creatively integrate into our lives.
