... BODY, MIND, EMOTIONS & SPIRIT
strong healthy beautiful
Kundalini Yoga is a physically beneficial practice, renewing and strengthening the physical body by balancing and energizing all the body systems, organs, and glands. With emphasis placed upon the breath during practice, an abundance of life-force energy (prana) moves throughout the body. Kundalini Yoga practices boost the immune system and activate the body’s powerful innate healing system. The body's capacity to deeply rejuvenate and resist disease improves and a renewed vitality is experienced. Discover your radiant self.
We practice mostly with eyes closed allowing for a greater sense of self-awareness to develop. The body brings its own wisdom and as we become more sensitive to it, a healthy conscious relationship with our body evolves.
Master your MIND
effective aware intuitive
Kundalini Yoga heals the mind, the brain, and strengthens the nervous system. One's natural state of peace returns as the neutral (meditative) mind is developed, a fundamental state of consciousness cultivated in Kundalini Yoga.
Chronic stress and anxiety are relieved as the autonomic nervous system comes back into balance restoring the relaxation response. Many Kundalini Yoga practices stimulate the vagus nerve activating this parasympathetic / relaxation response.
As Kundalini Yoga strengthens the nervous system, we become more resilient to all manner of stresses allowing us to flow with the ups and downs of life. Mental discipline improves and inner conflicts diminish and can ultimately be resolved as balance is restored to the hemispheres of the brain and the five tattvas (elemental building blocks, earth, water, fire, air, and ether).
The relationships between the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, pineal gland, and the body’s glandular system are tuned up and optimized, profoundly improving health, sleep, mood, and interpersonal relationships. Intuition develops and daily life becomes easier to navigate. Our capacity to experience more of what life has to offer grows.
Cultivate Healthy EMOTIONS
supportive genuine helpful
Kundalini Yoga re-calibrates the emotional system with practices that release emotional blockages. If we have unresolved feelings, anger, fear, grief, sadness or others that belong to our past, they unconsciously affect our judgement in the present, and can impair our progress in life.
When our emotional energy flows freely, without the influence of unresolved emotional wounding, our feelings become a trusted guidance system. We can live from the heart courageously, compassionately and with integrity, confidently trusting our emotions, and the process of life.
Experience your SOUL
infinite nurturing peaceful
Life is far more enjoyable and meaningful when it aligns with the Soul. Kundalini Yoga’s ancient practices give the practitioner an experience of their soul, the limitless and infinite part of ones being. It brings a renewed sense of life purpose, happiness, health, and holiness/wholeness.
“Yoga is the ultimate practice. It simultaneously stimulates our inner light and quiets our overactive minds. It is both energy and rest. Yin and Yang. We feel the burn and find our bliss.”

How is KUNDALINI YOGA DIFFERENT to other YOGA styles?
Kundalini Yoga is a comprehensive yoga technology integrating all Eight Limbs of Patanjali 's Yoga Practice. In addition to offering physical health and fitness, it expands one's awareness connecting them with their highest consciousness. Kundalini Yoga efficiently delivers results considerably faster than other yoga styles, in part because it brings these practices together in specific yoga sequences called Kriyas.
The Kundalini Yoga Kriya is central to every Kundalini Yoga class. A Kriya is a set of yogic practices that synergistically impact the body, the mind, and the soul with a specific predictable outcome. There are thousands of Kundalini Yoga Kriyas addressing every facet of body, mind and soul.
A ‘householders yoga’, Kundalini Yoga is accessible to anyone drawn to it’s practice. It does not require the adoption of particular habits or prohibitive lifestyles, nor does it create Gurus or require a Guru to initiate a student. YOU are your own Guru!
Beyond classes, Kundalini Yoga offers wisdom and practical guidelines for every compartment of life and lifestyle.
The Kundalini Yoga teachings are rich in their Raj/royal lineage, divinely inspired thousands of years ago for anyone seeking a happy and healthy life.
Kundalini Yoga is a gracious gift to students and teachers alike providing a wealth of wisdom not only in the provision of offering complete teachings, but also providing enlightened guidance through access to the mystical Golden Chain of enlightened masters.
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness, balancing, uplifting and healing the body, mind and spirit, and awakening the Kundalini Energy, the nerve of the Soul.
This potential, powerful energy lies dormant at the base of the spine, coiled like a sleeping snake or as defined by Kundalini, ”the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved.”
The sacred science of Kundalini Yoga practice activates this Kundalini Energy, to uncoil and rise upward through the chakras (energy vortices), elevating the individual to a state of Super-consciousness.
The subtle energy system, the chakras and meridians (channels for energy flow) are fully activated and perfectly aligned. The energy of the nervous system and glandular system combine causing the individual to become wholly sensitive and totally Self aware.
This is experienced as a realization of ones authentic creative potential, and understanding oneself in the context of the Universe.
In this Kundalini awakening, the Yogi is aware of his or her soul and their destiny is supremely empowered.
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a safe practice when under the instruction of a KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher.
