Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is an integrative combination of movements and postures, conscious breathing, deep relaxation, mantra and meditation. It is a dynamic and powerful tool for total health, well-being and personal fulfillment.
In each class, after tuning in and warming up, we work with a set of exercises or Kriya, with precise effects on a particular body system or area, state of mind or emotion or area of yogic physiology. There are hundreds of different Kriyas, all based on an ancient and precise yogic science. The teacher leads you through the Kriya, so there is no prior knowledge necessary and you benefit straight away. The Kriya is followed by a period of deep relaxation to integrate the positive effects and relax deeply, then a theme-based meditation before finishing.
From a physical perspective, regular practice of Kundalini Yoga can improve circulation, help balance out muscle tension, bring relief to injuries, melt away stiffness and tiredness, improve digestion, strengthen and relax the nervous system, harmonise the metabolic and glandular systems, balance out moods, bring mental clarity and much more. Through the movements, postures and meditations imbalances are corrected, your life energy is increased and brought into flow.
Kundalini Yoga also has powerful, positive effects on the mind and emotions. It helps you to slow down and relax, quenches the thirst for meaning which can often get lost in our fast, modern life, affirms you in your innate self-worth and with it you can work through blocks, anxieties and fears.
Kundalini Yoga is also the Yoga of Consciousness and while it is great as a weekly tune-up it can also, if you wish, be taken on as a deep spiritual practice. The process involves over time raising and integrating higher levels of energy and consciousness, awakening the potential of your own soul and embracing more and more whole-heartedly a life of health, happiness and wholeness.
