How is Kundalini Yoga different?
Kundalini Yoga is a holistic type of yoga that includes chanting mantras, meditation, Pranayam or breathing exercises and asanas or physical movements or postures. This type of yoga focuses more on the neurological and glandular systems and the movement/transformation of energy than the stretching and exercising the musculoskeletal system.
How often should I come for Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga can be practiced daily or a few times a week. The more time you practice, the better you will feel!
What does ‘Sat Naam’ mean?
It is common for Kundalini practitioners to greet each other by saying “Sat Naam”. Sat meaning truth and Naam meaning name or identity. I see the beauty of the truth within you – it’s the same truth that resides within me.
Why do practitioners wear white clothing?
Wearing white expands your aura and creates a powerful connection between you and your environment. Negative energy is reflected away from the body and positive energy is contained within. By wearing white, all the colors are available to support and enhance your aura and eight chakras (energy centers).
Why Chant Mantras?
Think of a mantra as a vibration that shakes something loose or activates a desired state of being within you. Mantras heal, and they can also make us feel protected, courageous, and compassionate. Chanting mantra puts us in touch with the ‘Naad’ the sacred sound of the universe.
