What is Kundalini Yoga?

An Introduction to Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan®

Kundalini Yoga is the original of the twenty-two schools of yoga and is called the "mother yoga." It works on your entire nervous and glandular system. The word "kundalini" means awareness, and manifesting the hidden potential of that awareness. In the yogic tradition Kundalini energy is portrayed as a coiled serpent lying dormant at the base of the spine. To raise the Kundalini means to awaken and enliven this creative energy.


Kundalini Yoga is an effective way to both strengthen and stretch the muscles. The increased flexibility gained through Kundalini Yoga will help prevent injury and avoid pain. In addition, because Kundalini Yoga incorporates the physical aspects of yoga, along with the mind and spirit, into an integrated system, you gain a working understanding of the mind/body connection. The meditations you will learn will improve your concentration and focus which will improve your ability to function at your best. Finally, you will feel refreshed and attentive after each session indicating a stronger and more balanced immune and nervous system.

Yogi Bhajan Kundalini Yoga

“Awareness takes these things away from you: thinking, reason, logic, argument, fantasies, planning, scheming, knowing and worrying. These nine things must go before you can say that you are on the path of awareness.”

- Yogi Bhajan
