  Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan  
 


Kundalini is a Raj yoga. Linking breath to sound through postures and movements is a central aspect of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga is based on kriyas (specially formulated sets of exercises) which allows you to target specific benefits and work on those specific aspects of yourself - body parts/systems/functions, mental, emotional aspects - and active meditations using muddras, body locks and sound.

As a consequence it increases oxygen capacity, boosts blood flow, balances the Glandular System, strengthens the Nervous System, and reduces stress-induced toxins such as Adrenaline and Cortisol. The effect is a heightened self-awareness and vitality that allows you to harness mental and emotional energy. Individuals feel more in control of themselves, with enhanced peace of mind, concentration, and a deep inner calm and self-confidence.

No matter what someone’s age or physical capacity is, Kundalini yoga and meditation can have immediate benefits. Any amount of time spent practicing – whether three minutes or an hour a day – produces significant effects, and in return, motivates individuals to dedicate more time to its’ practice.

 

 
 

When you can't do an asana,
props are here to help you.

Meditations can be silent or using mantras, still or active, incorporating mudras, locks, tongue, eyes...and breath.

 

Pranayam is a central tool. It can be used as such or during an asana.

 
     
  Yin yoga  
 

Yin yoga creates a deep tissue relaxation work by holding poses up to 4 minutes. The immediate effect is an action on the connective tissues which are getting thicker with time, reducing our flexibility. By holding the positions we stretch those tissues, activating the circulation of fluids. A sensation of heat occures after holding the posture in which you have literaly sunk as you need to totally relax your muscles. At the end of the session you will have a feeling of space in your body and mind. We use yin classes as a support to Kundalini classes. It will help those of you with stiff back and hips to open up and be able to access kundalini sets and meditations more deeply.
