What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga is a part of the Tantric tradition. Mind can be expanded and our experiences are not totally dependent on the object. It means that if someone has painted a picture then I can see it and if I am eating something then I can feel the exact taste of that food but I can also see if there's no picture and I can also feel the taste of something if there's no food on my tongue. Our human personality also has the same quality which has been ignored for many years.
Tantra says that the range of the mental experiences can be broadened. Our senses are limited and can give us experience only up to a limited range. Experiences can be within the framework of time, space and object but there also can also be experiences beyond the framework of time, space and object. The later experience can happen when mind expands beyond its given definitions and limits and when this happens, energy is released from yourself.
The word Kundalini actually comes from the word Kunda meaning a deeper place, pit or cavity. The word Kundalini refers to the Shakti or power where it mostly resides close to mooladhara chakra in its dormant potential state. In terms of modern Psychology, it can be called the unconscious in man. In Hindu Mythology, Kundalini correspoends to concept of Kali. Most commonly, Kundalini is related with a coiled serpent three and half times in Mooladhara chakra at the base of the spine.
The Kundalini is untapped energy at the base of the spine that can be awakened and raised up through the body awakening each of the seven chakras from Mooladhara to Sahrshara. Full enlightenment occurs when this energy reaches the Sahrshara (crown chakra) at the top of the head.
Each Kundalini and Tantra Yoga Asana series is done with a specific breathing technique that intensifies the effects of the poses with the purpose of freeing energy in the lower body and allowing it to move upwards. Kundalini sequences (called Kriyas) may consist of rapid, repetitive movements done with in conjunction with a designated breathing method or holding a pose while breathing in a particular way.
Our Kundalini Yoga class begins with a short chant followed by a warm-up to stretch the spine and improve flexibility. The main work of the class is called a kriya, which is a proscribed sequence of poses and Pranayama that focuses on a precise area of the body. The teacher typically does not make manual adjustments. The class ends with a meditation, which is accompanied by the teacher playing a large gong, and a closing song or prayer.
What we teach in this course?
We teach authentic traditional Kundalini Kriya Yoga Methods along with inclusions of Nada and Mantra Yoga techniques and methods for awakening chakras and Kundalini. The course comprises of Kundalini Yoga Concepts, Tantra, Philosophy, Physiology and detailed explanation and understanding of Kundalini Serpent Energy within us. The Kriyas and meditations are intended to bring upon the slow and gradual changes to our mind, body and every aspect of our life. However, strict discipline and austerity in the form of persistent effort and dedication is required for the aspirant to go higher and further on this path. No sudden changes and results can be expected.
