Kundalini Yoga is Science which works on the seven chakras, the arcline and the Aura (the Eighth Chakra). It works directly on the total energy, and that flow of energy has one simple way: either you sway it or it sways you. Either you are above the energy and ride it, or you go below the energy and it rides you. That is where Kundalini Yoga fits in : you will learn to ride your energy, to experience it and penetrate any given situation to attain a balance,
What is Kundalini actually? It 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 and wholly aware, and you creative potential becomes available to you.
The power of Kundalini Yoga 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.
In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right ti your heart. No words can replace that experience.
Kundalini Yoga was brought to the west in 1968 by Yogi Bhajan, also referred to as Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogi Ji. Born August 26, 1929 to a wealthy family in an area of India today known as Pakistan, he was the eldest son of a very devout family. At birth they recognized the mark of a saint on the bottom of his foot, and he was taken to many holy spots during his first 40 days of life. At age 7, he was sent to study with his Teacher, Sant Hazara Singh, and by 16-1/2 he was declared a Master of Kundalini Yoga – a rare feat, especially for one so young.
Leaving behind a lucrative governmental career, in 1968 he came first to Canada and then to the USA, to answer the call of the yearning hearts of so many who were struggling to find spirituality in the turbulent drug culture of the ‘60’s. Yogi Bhajan broke with the long-held tradition of silence, opening Kundalini Yoga & Meditation as well as White Tantric Yoga (a deeply transformative & healing meditative practice) to the public. Soon Kundalini yoga centers began springing up across the United States and then throughout the world. For the next 35 years, he taught thousands of classes and inspired countless people to keep up and live in their excellence.
Today we teach Kundalini Yoga as passed down from teacher to student, for thousands of years, and as gifted to us through our Teacher, Yogi Bhajan. It is with deep gratitude and respect that we carry on this lineage.
