Kundalini yoga focuses on increasing awareness and strengthening the nervous system to handle raising the internal human energy (“kundalini”) in order to help enhance the spiritual experience.
Before 1969, kundalini yoga was a secretive technology passed only from master to disciple. It has it roots in the tantric yoga tradition, which date back to the 8th century, but was not widely taught to the West until Yogi Bhajan brought his understanding of the teachings out of India and to the United States in 1969. Today, there are thousands of kundalini yoga teachers and students worldwide.
There are many physical, mental, and spiritual benefits from the practice of kundalini yoga. Just some of the benefits of this practice include strengthening the nervous and immune systems, increasing circulation, decreasing stress, elevating your mood, an increased sense of peace and calm, and a heightened resolve to drop demoting habits (smoking, etc.)
