Kundalini is generally defined as “the energy of awareness”. Kundalini is concentrated prana, or life energy, that is stored at the base of the spine. Although all forms of yoga work towards raising the kundalini in some way, Kundalini Yoga, as taught by yogi Bhajan, is the science of raising the kundalini. When he brought Kundalini Yoga to America in 1969, Yogi Bhajan formed two organizations. These organizations are 3HO & KRI, the Kundalini Research Institute. Here is some more information about Kundalini Yoga from 3HO’s website: In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul. "In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace your experience. Your mind may accept the words or it may not, but your consciousness will not accept just words." -Yogi Bhajan, The Aquarian Teacher Training manual, p. 20 Kundalini Yoga is a yoga for householders, for people who have to cope with the daily challenges and stresses of holding jobs, raising families, and managing businesses. It is a path for everyone who wants the skills to cope successfully with the challenges of our times. The kundalini experience does not mean you have gone into a deep breathless trance and are beyond this world. … It integrates you more fully with reality and gives you a broader vision and sensitivity so that you can act more efficiently." ~Yogi Bhajan, from Kundalini Yoga: The Flow of Eternal Power, back cover This 7 Week Introductory Kundalini Yoga Course is designed to introduce & facilitate the integration of Kundalini Yoga practices into daily life. Although this is considered to be an introductory course, both beginners & experienced yogis will receive benefit.
