Kundalini is one of the most misunderstood concepts in yoga.
There are many opinions of different masters about kundalini. For example, you may have heard people saying ‘kundalini is the primordial energy that one should not approach without the assistance of a realised master.’
Some say the experience of awakening is brutal and others say it is absolutely Blissful.
So what exactly is the truth of kundalini and what happens on the awakening of kundalini?
In this 5-day workshop, learn about the basics of Kundalini Yoga, the concept of kundalini awakening, chakras and the practices to activate them. This workshop is intended to make you feel more energized, more relaxed and more alive simultaneously!
This Workshop is suitable for all yoga practitioners having experience of hatha yoga and pranayama and especially very relevant for yoga teachers, yoga therapist, holistic therapists and spiritual seekers of traditional kundalini yoga
Kundalini Yoga – The Yoga of Awareness
Kundalini is the energy of consciousness. It is your awakened inner identity. The energy of your soul. It lies dormant at the base of your spine. The goal of Kundalini Yoga is to awaken the Kundalini energy to achieve awareness.
The whole concept of Kundalini Yoga revolves around “Kundalini“. The term “Kundalini” actually is the symbol of unmanifested energy in a person.
- Kundalini is there, within you. Even if you know it theoretically, you can’t feel it. This is why we call it unmanifested energy.
- It’s non-existent for you, till you do not induce any movement into it.
Kundalini yoga includes specific asanas, kriyas, mantras, breathing exercises, mudras, bandhas and meditation that aims to awaken the kundalini energy present at the base of your spine.
Once kundalini shakti awakens, it starts piercing the chakras (energy centres) one by one, from bottom to top and unites with shiva at Ajna chakra. It’s called the union of shiva and shakti (or, energy and matter).
This kundalini yoga workshop is comprised of five live sessions, each 90 minutes long. It’s designed keeping in mind that you have basic knowledge of asanas, pranayama and meditation so that direct concepts can be addressed during the session.
This workshop is suitable for intermediate to advanced practitioners.
