Feeling a little run down, lethargic, not your perky self?
Maybe it's time to try Kundalini Yoga, but what is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundlini Yoga powerfully transforms practitioners, strengthening both mind and body. In the 1960s, Yogi Bhajan (a gifted Indian Prince) visited America and was shocked by the suffering related to drug and alcohol abuse he witnessed there. He decided to share the sacred practice of Kundalini Yoga in order to help recovering addicts and offer a positive alternative.

Kundalini Yoga is a popular style of yoga today in the West, with many dedicated followers. Each class is comprised of a set of postures or 'kriyas', focussing on breathing techniques, chanting and meditation. These are designed to raise awareness and consciousness in order to attain spiritual bliss.

Kundalini means 'coiled' in Sanskrit. This refers to the Kundalini energy which lies coiled at the base of the spine. Postures move the practitioner's Kundalini energy from the base chakras up the spine to the higher energetic centres. Once the Kundalini energy flows freely, the practitioner feels more energetic, intuitive and connected to the universe.

Kundalini Yoga is a fun and experiential practice. Sattva Yoga Centre offers Dynamic Kundalini Yoga and Meditation courses, or see Kundalini Yoga Teacher's Association for more information.
