Kundalini yoga, known as the yoga of awareness, is an ancient technology rooted in India, brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan in 1969. Each Kundalini yoga class combines breath work (pranayama), postures (asana), sound current (mantra) and meditation in a precise, conscious manner to affect body, mind, and soul. The practice of Kundalini Yoga balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions.
"The Power of Kundalini Yoga lies in the actual experience. It goes right into your heart and extends your consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and knowing the truth." — Yogi Bhajan
