How does Kundalini Yoga differ from other forms of yoga? The emphasis in Kundalini Yoga is on the flow of the kriya—the specific sequence of exercises and meditations (these may include posture, breath, mantra, focus, and/or movement).
Postures are often held for a substantial period of time, to the point where the mind gives way to the body’s wisdom. The body is a self-regulating system; it knows how to heal itself and performs appropriately in the absence of the ego’s false interventions.
We begin each yoga set with a mantra of protection called the Adi Mantra, which links you to the flow of Infinite Consciousness that guides the kundalini energy. The synergistic combination of postures, mantras, and meditations combines to put positive pressure on the subconscious mind and allow it to clear limiting beliefs and patterns that are otherwise inaccessible. The mental relief that we feel after a yoga set is cumulative.
This powerful system of yoga is always taught in its undiluted form in order to preserve its intent and efficacy. Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is suitable for all levels, including those who have never done yoga before.
