What is Kundalini Yoga? Kundalini is your creative potential. You experience it when the energy of the glandular system combines with the energy of the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. Then you become totally & wholly aware, and your creative potential becomes available to you.
The power of Kundalini Yoga also lies in the actual experience. It goes right into your heart and extends your consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and of knowing the truth. Ultimately you come to understand your existence in relationship to the universe and understand you already are and this brings you to the practical experience of Infinity. You can then radiate creativity and infinity in all aspects of your daily life.
Kundalini Yoga is considered the most comprehensive and holistic of yogas, combining meditation, asanas (physical exercises), mantra and pranayam (breathing exercises). “Kundalini” literally means “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved.” This poetic metaphor describes the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each and every one of us; enabling us to merge with universal consciousness. Fusing individual and universal consciousness, the micro and the macro, is what yoga is all about.
How can Kundalini Yoga improve your life? There is no time like the present to take control of your life. Excuses, bad habits, distractions are all self-made in order to keep you from being the most creative YOU that you can be. Why? Because sometimes it's easier just to stay where we are; bad habits and all. Or maybe you might end up being successful and you're unsure of how that might feel or affect your life as it is.
Kundalini Yoga can help you in many ways by making you aware, mentally flexible and courageous so that you can successfully navigate your life. It can help you to identify the obstacles and difficulties that hold you back from living the creative life you want. It can and will help you to get in touch with your most powerful, positive, productive, and peaceful CREATIVE SELF. Once you do, you'll be amazed how easy and stress-free your life can be...but all you have to do is start.
Who is Yogi Bhajan? From the first moment he began to teach Kundalini Yoga he declared. “I have come to create teachers, not to gather students. I have come by my Guru’s grace to serve those souls who shall serve the Aquarian Age.” He began to share a body of teachings which we call “Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan.” With perfect consciousness and grace he built an institution, a house of teachings, to serve the Aquarian consciousness. A student asked him, “How can I get to know you better?” He replied. “I am my teachings. Read them, practice them, and you will know me.” By his sacrifice, devotion and consciousness he left us a legacy, not a lineage, and a path; not a personality. © The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan From “The Aquarian Teachers Level One Textbook" by Yogi Bhajan,, published by the Kundalini Research Institute
