What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga is a part of the Tantric tradition. 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.
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 has the same quality - something that 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 experiences 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, kundalini energy is released from yourself.
Is this course for you?
You seek deeper self-transformation. You are a serious student looking for a more profound internal experience than a beach retreat or tourist yoga destinations can offer. At SOHYAA we do yoga in a spiritual way without distractions of loud music, parties and intoxication of the body. By gradually and safely awakening and employing the power of Shakti, you will benefit greatly from an elevation in consciousness, promotion of physical well-being and an expansion of awareness. You will feel more relaxed and connected with yourself. Your life will be transformed into one which is happy, healthy & harmonious.
Why you should choose a course at SOHYAA Goa?
- We don’t offer a holiday retreat or commercial Yoga here. Rather we strive and endeavour to teach the authentic traditional Kundalini Yoga methods inspired from Kundalini Kriya Yoga. We merge it well with Nada , Hatha and Mantra Yoga techniques being delivered and taught in a simple and effective way. We expect dedicated students to join our courses as we are truly dedicated to personal transformation. We offer a serious approach for learning Yoga & Vedic Sciences for dedicated and serious students and teachers.
- A course & training at SOHYAA Goa is just the beginning of your personal and professional transformation. We follow up with continued communication and guidance one to one online if students wish to do so.
- We keep small groups to give individual attention and interaction which leads to unique learning experience.
- The most effective way of learning and teaching Yoga is from ‘Direct Experience’. This is the traditional teaching where you will inherit the fruits of the wisdom of ancient Yogis to present day.

- We offer volunteering opportunities for enthusiastic yoga students to teach with us after the course.
Who can join?
Any enthusiastic and disciplined Yoga student who has been practicing any style of Yoga ( Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar or Kundalini Kriyas) can join. We advise absolute beginners not to go for this course as it requires some prior preparation and basic understanding of Yoga.
What to expect during the course?
Strict discipline, No Non veg food or smoking or boozing, Abstinence from sensual sexual pleasures, living with simplicity and in a satwic Yogic way. Avoid useless talking and chatting, engaging in personal and group practice, being considerate to others and yourself.
Twice a week we conduct a morning or evening session in nature, meditation or asana practice: at the beach, by the river or in the forest.
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 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. We don’t teach Yogi Bhajan Style of Kundalini Yoga at SOHYAA.
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 delete) 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.
