What is Kundalini Yoga?
Have you been feeling tired or stressed lately? You definitely need to try something that could help you relax, breathe and concentrate on your body, mind and soul.
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient yoga practice, the most potent and effective system of self transformation and personal development. It is known as “ The Yoga of Awareness”, an ancient science to manage modern life. Kundalini Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years and was kept secret until 1969 when Yogi Bhajan taught it openly in order to prepare humanity for the major changes that this planet is going through. It used to be taught by a master to selected disciples and nowadays it has gained widespread acceptance around the world. This popular attention speaks not only to the proven benefits of yoga and meditation, but to the increasing interest in spirituality and a healthy lifestyle.
The word Kundalini means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved.” This poetic metaphor alludes to the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each of us and enables us to merge with the Universal/Infinite Consciousness. This technology intentionally directs the energy, through movement, posture, breath, eye-focus, mudra, and mantra, to achieve a remarkable outcome in a fast way.
With regular practice, Kundalini Yoga will take you on the true path to personal transformation. Yogic technology of mind training combined with postures, breath, and energy movement will help balance your body and clear your mind, bringing you positive energy.

What to expect from class
A typical Kundalini Yoga class lasts about 60-90 minutes. Each session is different and accessible to practitioners of any level. You can practice at your own pace based on your capacity! If you practice often, you will acquire experience to do challenging exercises while staying in a state of calm.
1. Tuning in with the ‘Adi Mantra’
We start every practice by tuning into the divine flow and self-knowledge within each of us while linking us to Yogi Bhajan and the Golden Chain of teachers.
We chant the protection mantra for guidance and protection. It helps to bring clarity when there is doubt and opens you up to a sense of guidance from the highest sense of Self.
‘Ong Namo, Guru Dev Namo’ 3 times. This means ‘I bow to the subtle divine wisdom, the divine teacher within’. It connects us to our highest self, the teacher living in each one of us and it’s spiritually guides the teacher and students during the class. The mantra connects us to The Golden Chain – all the teachers who have gone before us.
‘Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siree Guroo Dayv-ay Nameh’, It clears the clouds of doubt and opens us to guidance and protection. It surrounds our magnetic field with protective light. It means ‘I bow to the primal wisdom. I bow to the wisdom true
through the ages. I bow to the true wisdom. I bow to the unseen wisdom’. We also chant this mantra 3 times.
This is to set your intention for the practice before moving onto the next part of the class.
2. Pranayam and Warm-up exercises
After chanting the mantras, we continue with a series of breathing and warm-up exercises to stretch the muscles, oxygenate the bloodstream, flex the spine and deepen the breath.
3. Kundalini Yoga Kriya
In Kundalini Yoga, a kriya is a series of postures, breathing techniques, and sounds that work toward a specific outcome. There are hundreds of kriyas. Each kriya has a different effect but all of them work on all levels of your being.
Once we finish with all postures, we plunge into a state of deep relaxation that helps restore all systems and allows for the integration of all the subtle and physical changes initiated by a kriya. We may sense the extension of the self through the magnetic field and the aura.
Meditation in Kundalini Yoga contains specific, practical tools centered in precision, effectiveness and practicality. These meditations support the mind and balance the body through the use of breath, mind focus, mantras and mudra.
The variety of meditation techniques in Kundalini Yoga is truly extraordinary! Yogi Bhajan passed on hundreds of meditations tailored to specific applications: there are some meditations to help reduce stress, increase vitality, and balance the chakras.
At the end of the class, we close and seal the practice by chanting ¨The Long Time Sun¨ and ¨Sat Nam’s¨ which are blessings for ourselves and others.
‘May the long time sun shine upon you. All love surround you. And the pure light within you, guide your way on’ This is a blessing.
Then we finish with three long Sat Nams:
‘SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT NAMM’ Meaning – truth identified I am truth.
