Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan

It consists of yoga techniques that can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. This practice combines movement (asana), breathing (pranayama), meditation (dhyana) and relaxation. Each aspect can work or focus on different aspects of the mind and/or body. Some of the benefits of the practice are: releasing muscle tension, activating the immune system and regulating hormone secretion. Your technique has:

  • dynamic and fluid movements
  • calm postures and relaxation
  • silent or mantra meditations

It has a large number of meditative practices and techniques that can be easily integrated into daily activities and practiced outside of a formal yoga class.

In yoga classes we will practice Kriyas which are various body postures coordinated with the breath to strengthen or relax the body. to purify and tonify organs and tissues, balance the glandular system and strengthen the nervous system. And to focus and calm the mind in order to prepare for meditation.

With the practice of Kundalini Yoga one can experience a feeling of vitality and awareness of one’s own body, accompanied by a gradually increasing sense of self-awareness.

Pranayama is the control of the movement of the vital force through the use of breathing techniques. The mind and breathing are closely linked when the mind is calm the way of breathing is correct (rhythmic and deep). It strengthens lung capacity, relaxes and calms and increases the ability to handle negativity and emotions.

Meditation (Dhyana) is the deep union with the object of concentration, i.e. holding the mind within a center of consciousness. The person is aware of the thoughts, but does not engage with them. It helps calm the nervous system, releases unconscious reactions and habits, promotes mental clarity and awareness and the ability to be present.
