Kundalini Yoga

<< return to a to z of yoga


Kundalini Yoga is also known as the yoga of awareness. It is an invigorating and spiritual practice, focusing on both breath and movement to release the kundalini energy coiled at the base of your spine. Much more than just a workout, its focus is on self-awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness.

Good to Know

Some of the more traditional teachers require you to wear all white to class, so it's worth checking with the studio.

Kundalini Yoga varies wildly from class to class, so be ready to be outside your familiarity and comfort zones to start with.

Classes include chanting, meditation and breathing exercises.

Who's it for?

Anyone who's willing to work hard - really hard - for the rewards of self-awareness and personal spiritual growth.

Origins

Kundalini Yoga was passed from master to student for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. Yogi Bhajan was the first to openly teach Kundalini Yoga in the West, travelling to the United States in the late 60s. He went on to found both 3HO and the Kundalini Research Institute.

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is now an international school with teachers and trainers across the globe.
