Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is a yoga of awareness. It is the original form of yoga, from which other styles separated. Kundalini Yoga has the physical aspect of Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga, the mantra aspect of Laya and Mantra Yoga, and the meditation aspect of Raj Yoga. It entails the philosophy of Karma Yoga, enhances the dedication of Bhakti Yoga, and strengthens the inner wisdom of Gyan Yoga.

Kundalini Yoga originates from India. It is an ancient science dating back thousands of years, and it was kept a secret, taught only to very few people by the enlightened Yogis. It was not until the late 1960’s that the Western world heard about this brilliant method of self development and practice.

In 1969 Yogi Bhajan travelled to Canada and decided to start teaching this technology to everyone and anyone. Yogi Bhajan made Kundalini Yoga available and accessible to anyone, declaring that you don’t need to live in a cave in the mountains in order to be spiritually developed and even enlightened.

Kundalini Yoga is a practice of the householder who lives in the modern society and has to face the challenges of this era day after day. As Yogi Bhajan puts it, ”It is your birthright to be healthy, happy and holy.” Today Kundalini Yoga is taught all over the world, and the Teacher Training Program is supervised byKundalini Research Institute (KRI) and Healthy, Happy and Holy Organization (3HO).

Class Structure

A Kundalini Yoga class lasts either 60 minutes or 90 minutes. Every class is different, because there are thousands of kriyas (or exercise sets) and meditations.

However, the basic structure is always the same:
1) We tune in with Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo and sometimes also Mangala Charan Mantra Ad Gure Nameh, Jugaad Gure Nameh, Sat Gure Nameh, Siri Guru Dev-e Nameh. NOTE! Please don’t be late, because the tune-in mantras are an essential part of the class.
2) We do some warm-up exercises to prepare our bodies for the kriya.
3) We do a kriya chosen by the teacher: for example, “Kriya for Healthy Bowel System” or “Kriya to Conquer Sleep”. Some kriyas are really tough workouts that will make you sweat, while other kriyas are more gentle.
4) After the kriya we relax for 5 to 10 minutes. This is when the kriya starts to affect you.
5) Usually after the kriya we do a meditation for 3 to 11 minutes. The meditation is chosen by the teacher to enhance the kriya’s effects.
6) To end the class we sing Long Time Sun and we say the mantra Sat Nam three times.

What to wear, what to bring? Wear comfortable clothes, preferably natural fabrics. We have yoga mats, blankets and cushions in our studio, and there’s always Yogi Tea and water for you.
