What is Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is a set of Yogic practices that use a balanced and holistic approach to form and maintain mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health and happiness. The practice of Kundalini Yoga initiated in India more or less 5,000 years ago. The Kundalini style of Yoga includes the movement between asanas, meditation, chanting, and pranayama methods to stimulate and nourish the Kundalinii Shakti energy that lies inactive at the base of the backbone. According to very old Vedic wisdom, the Kundalini Shakti energy is curved three and a half times at the base of the spine of every human being. When the Kundalini Shakti energy is stimulated, wisdom, great joy, peace, creativity, and positive energy are released. The energy is remedial and transformative by its very nature and can lead us to oneness with the real meaning of all reality. The main goal of the Kundalini form of Yoga is to wake up the Kundalini energy and to nurture the energy as it rises through and penetrates the seven chakras, terminating in the seventh chakra, the Sahasrara, at the top of the skull. When the Kundalini Shakti penetrates the Sahasrara Chakra great delight arises, as well as a thoughtful knowledge of the Divine.
