What is Kundalini Yoga?By Jafree Ozwald
There are over 22 different types of Yoga in the world, and they all have one thing in common. Their essential goal is to awaken and raise your Kundalini. Kundalini Yoga is that branch of yoga that takes you straight to the core of your being and is one of the most empowering experiences you can do for your body, mind and consciousness. The practice of Kundalini Yoga prepares your body so it can fully receive this awesome power of Kundalini energy. This Kundalini energy is soooo incredibly powerful that it can "short-circuit" your bodymind if it is not already strong, flexible and sound physically, mentally, and emotionally. Doing Kundalini Yoga you are opening your body’s chakras (energy centers) as well as strengthening it on each of these levels. Once your body is strengthened and the mind is at ease, this unlimited reservoir of pure energy can move safely up your spine and through your body. A strong, open and receptive bodymind allows the Kundalini to become a part of your daily activities and transform your life in the most miraculous ways!
"There is nothing good, nothing bad; thinking makes it so. All is God. In the worst there is God; in the best there is God. Beyond God there is nothing." ~Yogi Bhajan
Igniting the Kundalini through yoga will eventually give you the understanding of how to attract and manifest anything you want in the Universe. We say "eventually" since it is a tremendous amount of energy, that doesn’t always come with understanding. So there is a definite balance of allowing the energy in as well as maintaining a state of presence with it. The more you understand yourself, the easier it will be to access the Kundalini energy in your life.
Yoga is actually an ancient Sanskrit word that means, "Union with Source" and not just stretching your body into bizarre postures. Yoga is a 5000 year-old scientifically based system of breathing and relaxing the mind within a particular posture (Asana). Yoga can actually slow down or reverse the aging process, and has thousands of other health benefits that you can research online. A true daily yoga practice allows you to harness the power of your mind by finding your connection with Source. This puts you into the most empowered state of being so that you can live that unimaginable life you always dreamed of!
How To Start Doing Kundalini Yoga?Different Kundalini Yoga postures will yield different results physically, mentally and emotionally. Each Asana has its own unique posture and energetic path for you to reconnect with the Universe and quiet the mind. The Asanas are more than putting your body into a certain posture, they are an alignment and synchronicity with your breath, body and Presence… allowing yourself to slip into higher states of consciousness. Kundalini Yoga is famous for something called, "The Breath of Fire". This is a powerful technique which blends an Asana with very deep and fast breathing and will clear out the cobwebs in your mind, energize your body with oxygen, and prepare your body to receive the Kundalini energy.
There are literally hundreds of yoga postures to learn in Kundalini Yoga, yet if you just start practicing a dozen or so, you’ll reap the benefits easily. To try to explain each posture on this page would be a major injustice. The ultimate way to learn Kundalini Yoga is to go to a class where the teacher has had years of experience with previous Kundalini Yoga masters. If you cannot find one of these classes then you may want to purchase a Kundalini Yoga video (below) and do them from your own home. There is more information about Kundalini Yoga and a few videos that will guide you through the many Asanas on the webpage below…enjoy!
Many blessings to you,
