What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga is also a tool to achieve self mastery, and one of the oldest forms of human development. All yoga sets are designed to work on specific body systems, such as the muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular, glandular or reproductive system. Additionally, each set helps to balance emotional as well as mental patterns, working towards greater awareness/well being.
Kundalini Yoga strengthens the body, quiets the mind, and awakens the heart to realize your dreams, goals and aspirations!
WHAT TO EXPECT?
- Enhanced intuition
- Emotional balance
- Sense of well being
- Heightened sensory awareness
- Heightened spiritual sense
- Increased vitality/energy

I bow to the Divine Wisdom within; I call upon you!
Chant for Protection:

Siri Guru Devay Nameh
I bow to the primal wisdom.
I bow to the wisdom through the ages.

I bow to the great unseen wisdom.
This mantra (also known as the Mangala Charan Mantra) clears the clouds of doubt and opens us to guidance and protection.
followed by Mantra:
Aad such, Jugaad such, haiBHAY such, Nanak Hosee BHAY such.
True in the beginning, True throughout the ages,
True at this moment, Guru and Yogi Nanak says this Truth shall ever be.
2. Warm Up Exercises a series of exercises or postures to warm up the spine and loosen the body in preparation of performing a Kriya.
3. Kriya a series of postures (asanas in Sanskrit) with intended results, the purpose of which is to transform your state of consciousness. Breathing techniques to enable the movement benefiting the entire body are employed.
4. Relaxation/Meditation There are sometimes opportunities for relaxation between postures providing awareness of the body sensations, emotions, mind thoughts and direction. Relaxation is as important as the postures. At the end of the Kriya, opportunity to consolidate these gains is provided in an extended relaxation and/or meditation that may or may not be accompanied by music or guided relaxation.
5. Song of Affirmation
May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way on…(repeated twice)
