What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is also known as the Yoga of Awareness; its focus is on self- awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness. It is a science of the mind and body, to elevate the spirit, which has no boundaries, no discrimination. Therefore it is for everyone, universal and nondenominational.

It is a householder path; that is, it has always been practiced by those with families and jobs as opposed to a renunciate’s path of celibacy and removal from society, which was the usual path of a yogi.

The primary objective is to awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual; that is, recognize our awareness, refine that awareness, and expand that awareness to our unlimited Self. Clear any inner duality, create the power to deeply listen, cultivate inner stillness, and prosper and deliver excellence in all that we do.

What to expect in a class?

You can expect it to include six major components:

  • Tuning-in with the Adi Mantra,
  • Pranayam or warm-up,
  • Kriya,
  • Relaxation,
  • Meditation and
  • Close with the blessing song, “May the Long Time Sun Shine Upon You”.

Kriyas are complete sets of exercises that are performed in the sequences given by the Master, Yogi Bhajan. They can be simple short sequences or they may involve vigorous, even strenuous exercises, and strong breath techniques such as Breath of Fire, which challenge and strengthen the nervous and endocrine systems and test the will of the practitioner beyond the limitations of their ego.

The typical class is 60-90 minutes: 5-10 minute warm-up, 30-45 minute kriya, 5-15 minute layout, 11-31 minutes of meditation.

“We awaken the kundalini in order to be able to call upon the full potential of the nervous and glandular systems and to balance the subtle system of chakras and meridians within the body. “Kriya” is an orchestrated pattern of movements, sound, pranayam, mudras, concentration and meditation that
automatically guide the energies of the body and the mind to a specific result or change of consciousness. “ – Kundalini Research Institute
