What is Kundalini Yoga?
In Sanskrit, Kundalini means ‘Coiled snake’. It is the snake, the Shakti, that lies at the base of the spine, in the Muladhara. Kundalini Yoga is basically a mix of breath, movements, mantras, and chanting. It not only makes your body strong, but energy-rich as well. Your self-awareness and latent powers will also get a boost, if you engage in Kundalini Yoga practice. In some cases, one cannot even recognize that such energy is there. A person can spend his or her entire lifetime, without even tapping into these powers. As a part of Kundalini yoga, the Female shakti rises up the chakras, and becomes one with the Universal consciousness, through the avenue of the Sahasara Chakra.
Kundalini Yoga is different from other yoga practices like Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga-Vinyasa Yoga, which are more movement and physical strength oriented. There are several kriyas, that you will practice under the realm. They include asanas, mudras, bandhas, mantras, and proper breathing patterns. In Kundalini Yoga, these are better defined as ‘kriyas’. Now, you can advance your knowledge about Kundalini Yoga, through the 300 hour Kundalini yoga teacher training in Goa.
Kundalini Awakening & Brief Overview Of Course
Kundalini Yoga is a higher form of yoga, which is precisely also a spiritual form. You must enroll yourself for a course at a good Yoga School, like Heartland Yoga. We can provide you the traditional and authentic knowledge of Kundalini Yoga, according to the original lineage, and not that of Yogi Bhajan. However, certain kriyas and practices in general can be similar. Through such practices, you will experience the Kundalini awakening, which is a very strong spiritual experience. It can lead to significant changes in your consciousness. You will be able to look within and connect with your true self, through this course. When you experience this awakening, through initiation by a Guru, the female Shakti, which otherwise lies dormant travels through the chakras and unites with the Cosmic consciousness.
