The word Kundalini literally means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved”. It is a metaphor, a poetic way to describe the flow of energy and consciousness which already exists within each of us. It is our dormant potential, the power of our soul. We are all born with the innate capacity to both master and accept our circumstances.
Kundalini Yoga is a practice by which we can remove the body blocks that prevent the smooth flow of energy and circulation of the body; transform stress and our emotional and mental burdens and raise our consciousness, transforming our awareness and vigour into constructive energy. With the combination of asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing), mantra (sound) and meditation and with binding these together with our Will we can unleash our inner confidence, embrace life and accomplish our goals whilst staying in touch with our spirit.
Kundalini Yoga encourages an attitude of the east – experience and apply the techniques to gain an understanding rather than, as we are inclined to do, yearn for knowledge and understand the practice with our intellect.
“Tomorrow will take care of itself, and yesterday has already gone. The time is now! There is no initiation, no one to carry you across; you must stand on your own two lotus feet.” – Yogi Bhajan
