Kundalini Yoga (also known as the yoga of awareness) offers quick, simple and effective tools that raise the consciousness of an individual over time. Brought by Yogi Bhajan to the West in 1969, Kundalini, “the yoga of awareness,” opens your heart, builds strength and releases the energy located at the base of your spine. Each teacher will bring their own experience to the practice — some more traditional than others — but Kundalini is without a doubt one of the more spiritual styles of yoga. Kundalini yoga focuses on breath and movement and challenges its students both physically and mentally.
